Can you hear me sighing and winding down........

You know I love to go on vacation but I do love being in my own bed and being in my own home.

We had a busy day around the house, putting things away and tidying up. I managed to make a big dent in the laundry, and it was a lovely day to dry things outside.........I did wash when we were away, but only during our first week away.

Dh managed to get the sprinklers blown out and all closed up for the winter. He also took down the drapes on the gazebo and put them away for the winter.

Luckily dh has this week off of work as well, so he can relax and hopefully get better this week. I need to tackle the garden as it is looking pretty overgrown. We had dd and her boyfriend come over last weekend to cut the grass when we were away, so that was a help.

I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with my blog again, as I seem to be all over the place with that as well.

I wanted to add some more photo's from our vacation. I must admit to miss hearing the waves in the morning when I open the patio doors....



and seeing those Spanish Moss covered trees.....



Now to plan where to go next year!!! Also thank you for coming along with me on vacation this year.

Oh and for a little laugh, actually I was in tears laughing at this, click on this link Let me know if you find it funny.........

I was a bit behind on reading your posts, but I am caught up now. I had to read that article twice to enjoy it--one must slow down to savor (or is it savour?) the lovely language. I can imagine the differences between your accent and that of the locals in South Carolina. Did you have any trouble understanding them?

It sounds like you had a lovely vacation, but as you say, it's always nice to get home.

I had a good giggle at the Snookums link. :-)
