It has been a very long and emotional four months away from home, but we finally stepped foot back into our home Monday afternoon.  I can not begin to tell you how happy it made me feel.  I know I have said it before, but I truly love our little house by the river and will be looking forward to staying there much more often in a few more years.
There really wasn't much we had to do when we got there, as the snow was only about a foot deep and with the unusually warm February weather, it was rapidly melting.  Craig went about turning the water and the satellite dish back on, while I only had to flip the switch for the hot water heater and turn up the heat.
Do you remember almost 9 months ago, a blog entry about a fellow trucker, Ruth Ann from All Things Bradbury, who had sent me this little gem in the mail?  I was thrilled to receive it and knew immediately what I would turn it into, or should I say, what Craig would help me turn it into.
Yesterday we finally sat down and went to work on it and I love the way it turned out.  What I especially love is that it carries with it a ton of memories from Ruth Ann's husband Brad, who took this thermos on many a run in his truck for a lot of years.  If this thermos could talk, I bet it would have some stories to tell, but I will have to settle for it now being a treasured lamp in our little piece of heaven we call home.  Thank you Ruth Ann and Brad!
