road 2

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

We made it!
Day 2 was filled with all variety of things.
We drove from St. Louis into Indiana, and had the requisite photo at the "Welcome to Indiana" sign.

It took longer that I thought it would to get here, but we DID detour a little bit.

We drove around and eyed Holiday World, and decided that we were
MOST DEFINITELY excited to spend a whole day there.
We spotted Lincoln National Park, and then headed to the Leavenworth Inn, our home for the next 3 days. 

We grabbed a bite for lunch and then took the scenic route into Corydon, IN
to take a look at an actual Civil War battlefield site. 

After a little rain shower, the butterflies were out in full force, and I spent some time outside with my camera.

It was a fun day.  We decided that Holiday World was the plan for the day on Wednesday.

the sounds of silence

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

I sit in my living room and look out my windows
there is blue sky out the front of my house and grey out the back

I have been sick and alone in my house for 2 days now
the only sounds are my stuffed-up-nose-breathing and
the air conditioner running full speed

Molly is in Houston with her cousins
Carson is at basketball camp until bedtime
Todd has been working hard

Silence is golden, they say
and I think it is true
a few days of physical and mental silence
and recovery can make a person whole again
