Maybe it wasn’t the best idea to leave nearly 5 weeks of vacation for the end of the year, but that’s the way it turned out. So, after a long-ish Thanksgiving vacation just a couple weeks ago, we are now both officially on vacation for the rest of the year!
To ring in the vacation season, I made crepes this morning. They’re SO YUMMY! If you now have a craving, you can find the recipe in this previous blog post.
I hope I can decompress a bit in the coming week or so. But as much as work can seem to mess with my life and mindset, I really have nothing to complain about.
My mind this week is especially on family members that are experiencing real challenges. My sister-in-law is in the hospital recovering from surgery to treat recently diagnosed breast cancer. She is a strong woman, though, beating her first bout with cancer several years ago. One of my uncles recently was diagnosed with cancer as well a few weeks ago, and is preparing for surgery. Another uncle is dealing with long-term health issues as well.
So, today I’m sending thoughts and prayers their way, and starting this vacation acknowledging how very blessed I am — and celebrating with crepes.
