A Piece of My Day

A Piece of Monday, 8 November 2010…

Home, sweet, home!

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE vacation. And, after last week’s cruise, I’ve decided that I really love cruising. Examples of why: Lovely unpacking once. Lovely room stewards servicing the cabin twice a day. Lovely drinks brought to me wherever I happened to be. Etc.

However, for me, one of the great joys about traveling is coming home and experiencing the particular love and spirit we have created here. Example: sitting on the couch, curled up in my favorite old quilt, with Max on my lap, happy as a clam (or a schnauzer).

I took this picture the day we arrived home. There is something uniquely stressful about disembarking a cruise ship (with thousands of others) and then topping that off with a four hour drive, all following a rather harrowing night on the Gulf of Mexico which limited my sleep. To arrive home after all this and be greeted by Max and our house – it really topped off a wonderful vacation in just the perfect way. Exhausted, I ended up on the couch with a dog ready to snuggle. (It helped that a cold front had just blown in…)

There were other things waiting for me, too, of course: bills to pay, laundry to sort, work in the garden, phone calls and emails to process, etc. I’m happy to report that, as of today, I’m finally making some headway! But before I could make headway, it was a pleasure to upload vacation pics to Facebook – gazing again at the beautiful waters in and around the Yucatan, laughing again at silly photos of friends, remembering the ups and downs of life on a cruise ship (up: time together and with friends; down: tacky 1990’s Vegas decor).

So…I’m home. Home, sweet, home!

Peace be upon your night,
