An extended time just me and my husband at the campground did not happen.
My husband ended up working late all week, including the Thursday night when he was finally coming out the campground. We also discovered that we some how missed that it was his turn to be on call for work starting at 7 am Saturday morning. We had friends out to the campground to spend time with us Friday afternoon and evening and we had a blast with them but that meant we really only got a few hours alone together Friday morning and some of that time was spent finding parts to fix a kayak so we could kayak with our friends.
We are not giving up on spending a weekend away though and already have another weekend marked on our calendar.
This Week’s Goal
I am going to set a hopeful goal and a backup goal for this week. I am hoping to do a bike trip with my son that we have been looking forward to for months BUT the weather forecast is currently not agreeing with our goal so my backup goal in case the weather does not change is to enjoy one or two little outings with my sons while my daughter is away.
What I Read This Week
I finished 2 books this week which means I have now read 39 books in 2014
1. Wish: A handful of tissues by your side at all times type of book. A story of facing a battle head on and winning yet being okay with not because you know you did everything you could. (psst…this was a Tyndale Rewards title )
2. The Waiting: A story of facing our fears, and our sorrows. A story of knowing who we are and who we are not. A story that had me laughing one page and crying the next. (psst…I got this title though paperbackswap.com)

A Find I Want To Share
I got my first bottle of EO organic deodorant Lavender body spray for my birthday in March. I am now working on my third bottle and a 4th is on its way. When I cut out products with chemical based perfumes and parabens the one product I really missed was my body spray. I loved stepping out of the shower and misting myself all over with it. Now with EO Lavender body spray I can do it again but this time with out the chemicals. The label may say deodorant but truly it is a body spray and does not replace deodorant. The sent is very subtle and not at all overwhelming.
