Finally Home!

I finally made it home to Illinois!  I arrived in St. Louis on August 24th to 100 degrees and high humidity.  By the time I got off the plane, got my luggage and got to a waiting car, I was drenched!  Welcome to mid-west weather.

I stayed in St. Louis for two days to visit a friend and am now at my friend, Pat's.  Pat and I went to high school together and had not seen each other for 40 years.  We picked up just like it was yesterday and are having so much fun together.

My car finally shipped yesterday and should be here by the end of the week.  I have pictures to upload but I won't do that until I get my computer set up.  I've already got some craft shows lined up and am anxious to get my soap supplies so I can begin working on Fall products.

God has blessed every step of this move, including providing me with a job right away.  I started work last Tuesday as an administrative assistant/part-time activities assistant at Pleasant Hill Village.  Pleasant Hill is an independent living center and also a nursing facility which is run by the Church of the Brethren.  I am working in the independent living center and loving it!  Because so many of the residents are from this area, I have met several that knew my parents and other family members.

Life is good and I wake up each day thankful that I'm finally back in Illinois. I have been blessed beyond measure!

Kay, I look forward to hearing how you are settling into your IL home. Your new job sounds so wonderful. Once a month I play the piano at a hymn sing in a retirement home. I've often thought I wouldn't mind working at least part time there. It appears to be such a good place...and the people are so sweet and appreciative.
