Summer doldrums - and it's not officially summer yet

I've never seen this movie, but the title describes our home right now. No one is here. Well, only a few people are here. It's very quiet, empty, and at night, very dark. Sarah and Joan are at camp in Pennsylvania. Jacy is housesitting with friends this week, then leaving for Honduras to work at Orphanage Emmanuel. Tom and Karin are still in Virginia and won't be here until later in the week. Even Mom and Dad, who pop in and out several times a day and occasionally in the evening are gone - they left today for a tour of the early church sites in Greece and Turkey. Steve is busy with work (and I am glad to be able to eat and have shelter) and is on the road or working long hours in his home office. It's kind of boring to have so little activity here at home. On the other hand, having only one load of laundry a day is nice. And there are few dishes to wash after meals.

Thankfully, a reprieve is on the way in the form of Glenn, Amy, and the girls. They'll arrive this afternoon and stay until the end of the week - hurrah! And this time, they're bringing their golden lab, Dixie, so Cocoa will have company, too. (Would Dixie be considered Cocoa's "cousin" since Cocoa is Marley's dog and Dixie is Glenn's dog? And why do questions like that even pop up in my head, anyway?)

Sounds like your house will be back to the normal hustle and bustle in no time.
