The kids and I arrived home from Illinois today a little after noon (Andy had to come back last night due to a prior commitment). I have to admit that I am emotionally drained and exhausted. It took about all the energy I had to unload everything and unpack. After a shower and a short nap, I awoke to Andy and Laura working on finishing the outside Halloween decorations. The Kassel family graveyard, ghoul, and spider webs have returned for another year.
This evening, I spent some time making smaller flower bouquets and placing the flowers and plants from Mom’s service around the house. I still have one large arrangement to place, but I have no idea where to put it because it is so big. Most likely, I will need to take the flowers out tomorrow anyway because it is in a water block. The flowers and plants do look nice around the house.
