It was good to have a couple of days where there was no worry in the world except for being with family and just living. It was a good weekend, one that does not come often enough.
The oldest is back at college today and it was just as hard to say bye this time as it was before. I can only hope to get a little callused so it does not hurt as bad. Her next visit will be either at Thanksgiving or Christmas Break.
The food storage got some good use Sunday. It was the oldest girls bedroom and now it is lined with shelves running down the walls and through the center creating isles. The store room has a pharmacy and toiletries down the North wall, bulk storage, pasta and lay down freezer across the back, canned goods and box foods up the South wall, drinks, breakfast and lunches line the West wall. Through the center is all the home canned foods, soups and stews, cooking ingredients, baking goods, deserts and much more.
Sunday before the oldest left, I told her to she could go shopping if she needed it. It was really cool to see her grab a little basket and walk up and down the isles. She laughed and said it was just like at the grocery store. That made me smile.
I am so glad I had it there for her to take.
