It was really dark outside at 7:00 am, very foggy and drizzling rain. Thank goodness it wasn't cold. The horses were checked, Evan will need a bale tomorrow. We had about an inch and a half of rain from last night until this afternoon and the drives are muddy. Ruth, Diane and I walked but only until 7:45 am as Ruth needed to take Farkosh home before heading to work. Diane and I went to mom's, Diane to pay bills and me to make breakfast and stay for the day. One of the cats that live at Joan's house, I think this is Berlica's cat, has decided to come where there are people and thought just maybe since the birds have a feeder just perhaps she can catch a bird.

Such a wonderful thing to be able to sleep in your own bed in your own house after a long trip. I woke refreshed. Even though it was Sunday, laundry had to be done, Mark was about out of clothes to wear. Before I leave again he will learn how to start the washer. Last night 4 packages of pork chops were taken out of the freezer to defrost for the dinner tonight. They were almost defrosted by morning and were put in the fridge to finish. The bathroom was given a quick clean up but that was about all of the cleaning done before church. It was SO good to be back in church. Craig Stickling had the morning message on Genesis 24, the Isaac and Rebekah story but so much more. Gregg Rumbold had the afternoon message on the Galatian's Bible study. After church Ben and his boys were the first to arrive. The boys went right to work on a puzzle.

Diane and I were both up at 4:00 am. Diane finished packing while I waited for the coffee to finish and then quickly downed 2 cups of very strong coffee. We finished packing the van then Joan brought mom down and showed us how to get her in and out of the recliner from the wheel chair. Honestly our biggest fear on this trip was that Diane, Rachel and I would not be able to help mom from the recliner into the wheel chair and then find a bathroom large enough. We stopped at Rachel's condo to pick up Dan then started the 900 miles home.

Our last sunrise here in Gulf Shores as we leave before we leave for home tomorrow at 5:00 am. It really was another beautiful sunrise.

A bit chilly this morning but another beautiful sunrise. I was out on the balcony around 6:30 am, well before sunrise but the sky was already beginning to lighten.
