Travel brings power and love back into your life.
Oh my. What a whirlwind trip it’s been. Lots of family, lots of fun, lots of walking, and far too much food. But that’s okay. Word has it that if you’re happy when you’re eating, the calories don’t count as much.
M and I made the trip home in two stages, stopping near Annapolis (Maryland) to spend the evening (and night) with friends. I’m glad we did. The weather through the mountains of Pennsylvania and western Maryland was on the wintry side. The trees were covered in ice, and when we hit Maryland there was thick fog to go with it. Fortunately the ice remained on the trees and road signs. The roads themselves were fine.
M and I are getting settled back in. It’s warm here on the Eastern Shore. In the 70’s warm. It won’t stay that way so we enjoyed what we could of this reminder of summer.
I took FAR too many pictures and it might take a while to sort them all out. I’ll share some along the way, but tonight you’ll have to settle for a few.
I’d better go pay some attention to Izzy and Bella (the cats) who are obviously happy that we’re home. Thank you for visiting. I’ll be making the rounds and getting caught up with you soon. I hope your start to the new year has been merry and bright. It was cloudy here, and there was no sunset to speak of, but for those following such things, sunset tonight was at 4:56 PM. It won’t be long before the daylight stretches out beyond 5:00 PM. Maybe tomorrow we can go out to the dock or to the Point and see what Mother Nature is up to these days.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
Today’s joys: Breakfast with friends; good weather for traveling; coming home, safe and sound; spending time with the kitties; lots (LOTS!) of vegetables for dinner.
* Throughout our travels, we used the old-fashioned GPS system known as a map. In D.C. we would look for (or ask the granddaughters to look for) the star with the words “You are here” so we could start from where we were and figure out where we might go from there. It’s always good to start from where you are, don’t you think?
