First off, let me say- we are home. Just got in about an hour ago and have unloaded the car and checked out the garden (the weeds! the weeds!) and put a very few things away.
So much to do to settle in.
But see that picture up there? That's where we stayed last night. Oh Lord. As I texted my children- just staying in that place has probably nullified any bit of good karma I have ever acquired. Well, what are you going to do? Mr. Moon found it on the internet, it was on our route home, and he booked it. He was being very sweet. And it was a lovely place. Gorgeous old (harumph) plantation house but I like my old Florida cracker-ish house a lot better. Too much dark wood and fru-fru doily things and pictures of magnolias that came from Stein Mart, probably. The room was lovely though and was even good to sleep in once the air conditioning managed to cool it down. The ceilings were about twenty feet tall so that's a lot to ask from a few air vents.
Back at Home Base ... It's the best place to be! So glad you had such a lovely time even though you had a moment or two of sadness!ReplyDelete
It is good to be home but I was not desperate to get back. I think I have needed some time away.Delete
no place like home! Welcome home! Hope Maurice and Jack are happy too! Have a martini and unwind!ReplyDelete
You give such good advice Susan!Delete
Well, that wraps my day perfectly. Sweet dreams to you and the pets and the chickens. Not the weeds; may they shiver and fall overnight.ReplyDelete
We slept very well. And dang it- it's the tomatoes that have shivered and fallen! Ugh.Delete
Welcome! It's always good to be home again.ReplyDelete
37paddington: The joy of traveling is also the joy of returning home. Sleep well, Moons.ReplyDelete
It's going to take me at least a week to catch up around here but then again- do I ever really catch up? Of course not. Oh well. Such is life.Delete
I am happy for you. Sweet dreams.ReplyDelete
Thank you, e!Delete
Glad you made it home safe. I always think the point of a holiday is to appreciate home more.ReplyDelete
This is generally true for me as well.Delete
WOW that was a quick trip! Probably seems like a small eternity to you , having to drive all that way. Glad you are back, pretty sure the chicken girls are as well. Your family in NC is probably crying right now because you can not be in two places at the same time.ReplyDelete
No- seemed like a pretty short trip to me too. I think the chickens and the cats were quite happy with Mark although Jack and Maurice did come to greet us when we got home and Jack seemed very happy to have me to snuggle with last night.Delete
Jewellery and Firearms together? I guess some might like a little bling on their guns. I always enjoy coming home, walking in the door and seeing everything familiar.ReplyDelete
Yes. Jewelry and firearms. Who could ask for more?Delete
It is nice to come back home, especially is someone has taken such wonderful care of it for you!
I'm sure you're glad to be back. That old plantation house looks really cool (not literally) and I imagine staying there was interesting, despite the Stein Mart decorating scheme!ReplyDelete
Steve- there was a candelabra on the mantel in the formal dining room with pink candles. PINK! I cracked up. That place was huge.Delete
Home sweet home! Vacations can wear you out! Take time to rest and relax!ReplyDelete
Well, we jumped right back into the fray today!Delete
Welcome home. No matter how much fun we had away or loved the place we were, it's always good to be home.ReplyDelete
Home is indeed where the heart is, although we sure left some of our heart in NC.Delete
Nice to have you back. But I'm glad you enjoyed the variegated (?) trip.ReplyDelete
