It's just me and my coffee for the very first time in 3 weeks. Juergen is back at work, and the kids are in school. It's nice to be alone for a change. I miss my brother, and my whole family. It was more then wonderful to have him with us! I'm so glad my children have each other. I hope they always remain close! I have to catch up on the laundry and cleaning. I should also work in the garden. My plants need some TLC. OK, it's back to the grind!
