iphone glimpse into our days

Standard

Looks like a little tropical storm is coming our way and from what I hear we may lose power for a bit. I’m so glad we have a gas stove but would trade that for city water. I guess the well doesn’t pump without power. Boo. Anywhoo, Today was a first. We swam in the murky waters and Jack got a jelly fish sting. Max peed on it and sure enough it took the sting out. I later heard Max and Sam saying to one another “don’t pee all your pee out, save some in case I get stung!”. Silly boys. We are enjoying the new house, I am enjoying the kitchen and I guess this storm will give me enough NON outside time to make a dent in the unpacking. The little boys room only has two more boxes which I’m threatening to deal with tonight. Then it’s just Noah’s room, our bedroom and the living room. We want Scott’s folks to come soon (they were going to come this weekend but then ANDREA decided to come instead) and need to get the house squared away before all the hostessing happens.

My mom gave me my dads old Iphone, and I’ve bought a lifeproof case for it, and have been using it a lot for pictures. I really enjoy the iPhone and how handy it is to not have to carry my camera with me. I also love now that I have the life proof that I can take it into the water with me. Fun in the sun! Here are pictures from my phone from this week. I included little captions to explain what’s going on.

Sam and Max google land crabs after we thought we saw one while out for a run (My first run in a month. I nearly died. Not really.)

A few broken conch shells in the shallow water. Wasn't it so clear? I love it when it's like this. When it's murky I don't like the boys to swim.

Just another amazing sunset.

That’s all folks. If I disappear for awhile you will know my power is out. It looks like the storm will be driving straight up the middle of the Eastern Shore. Yay us. We’ve dealt with storms before, just never ON the water. It will be a first. Should be fun!

 

It’s been a long time coming

DSC_0034Hey, Hi, Well where can I start? I quit my job at Food Lion after 14 months because we are moving to Virginia. Anybody want to buy a house in a cute rural-ish town in eastern NC?

I’m going to use my camera AGAIN, and MORE. I miss it. I miss blogging. So I’m here, and it might be three weeks or one day before I post again, but I just wanted you to know I’m alive and intend to get back to this. I have a lot to tell you about, mainly about recovering from dads death and about how much God is loving me in this move and change of pace.

I’ll be back, I promise, and I won’t be such a stranger. Below you’ll find flowers from my yard, taken today and photos of the bottoms of boats from a boatyard near our future home.
