Yes!! I most definitely did!!
They used to say that the world was flat and many explorers went on an adventure across the ocean to see if that were true!! Many got lost at sea and never came back. Today, many sail the adventurous seas of the blogisphere. Some drown in their unread Reader and others slip off never to be heard of again!! I have been blogging just long enough to notice that some blogs I once visited are no longer active as they slipped over the edge and back down to earth.
Well, here I am!!
You thought you'd no longer see me in your inbox or RSS feed, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever. Sorry. I'm back!! <Wink>
At first, all was well in my blogisphere because I had posts scheduled ahead. Then, when we returned, I was inundated with laundry and cobwebs (yes, cobwebs) as I recuperated from a wonderful time. Then, three of my children returned from South Africa and the laundry piles and stories of their times as short-term missionaries was shared. Our super quiet home took on life once more and the cobwebs couldn't form as the spiders have been scared away. Did I ever tell you that I find joy in sucking those spiders up with my vacuum hose?!
Needless to say, I couldn't keep up with WholeHearted-Home Wednesdays, and my posting fell to the sidelines. Maybe the vacuum hose is to blame??
It was like a honeymoon all over again after 33 years. First, we stopped by Lancaster County on the start of our special adventure. We enjoyed the wholesome atmosphere and the wonderful country food.

Then, we went to the Outer Banks. Crowds had left for home; school was starting. This has always been our favorite time for a vacation; but this was different, without a van full of kids!!
The weather was gloriously warm. Don't be fooled by pictures where the wind is evidenced. It was nice and hot!! Here are some moments captured from our adventure:
|We took walks on the beach during the afternoon or evening. |
This beach we found when we were leaving.
Shells!! A handful of shells!! I hadn't found shells since I was a teenager; since we seldom have gone to the crowded beaches.
|There are four lighthouses along the coast. |
We visited three.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.
I suppose now you understand why I didn't get WHHW posted last week!!
Actually, I'll blame it on the laundry as I was home already.
All the ladies who linked up with me two weeks ago had wonderful things to share and I wanted to post them all as my FAVES!! But you can go here and read them in case you missed them.
