It was such a good couple of weeks for reading/writing/walking all-by-myself.
I storm-watched and spied on the barn swallows nesting in the rafters and took every-coupla-days trips down
the gravel road to Rossburn for tea and human conversation...
And when M and Aa pulled up on the final Friday - the girl leaping into my arms, shouting Mama! - I was more-than-ready to re-enter our family unit.
