So, this week Carmi has been visiting me. Timing was delightful in that she is currently en route back to New Zealand from Europe and is taking the loooong way home by traveling around the USA on the way. And lucky for me she has a jam packed schedule and so having a week in the middle of her jam packed schedule where she does nothing was actually RIGHT UP her alley.
Thank goodness since we do nothing around here.
And so she's spent a goodly amount of time in my bed with Ransom and I, watching The Office and reading. We've slept late and taken walks in the evening and had prayer time. And today we celebrated Carmi's birthday ( which is tomorrow) by going out for the morning without Ransom. My wonderful friends Keri and Marie watched him for us and so I was able to indulge in a CAFFEINATED Latte...it was sooo goooood. **
And can I just say that it takes a special friendship that even after having not seen each other in THREE YEARS it has been terribly normal to see her again. Its just perfectly natural having her here. I am so blessed to have her as my friend.
** incidentally, I'm finishing this post at 1am because the fates are seriously laughing at me and that caffiene is keeping me wide awake when...1. My baby is sleeping and SO SHOULD I!! and 2. I'm exhausted.
