arrival

Ah, yes. It's me, it's this. I sit quietly in front of my laptop grinning in anticipation of what I'll find and what you've been up to. And yet a part of me is reluctant. I'm indoors now. The first time besides sleeping in the past 10 days that I've been in an enclosed space. The routine, my routine, it's back in a flash and here I sit.

It's easy to forget how much time I spend inside until I don't and then I do again.

The trip was really lovely. Lot's of quiet times and long walks, minor adventures and the hot sun. And I am glad to be home.

Outside is where my soul expands.

So glad you had a good adventure. Traveling can be hit or miss. Sounds like you've absorbed enough good sun to get you through a little more Winter!

So glad you're back!

We've had an early, lengthy cold spell, and I've really had to force myself to go outside (the kids would be out there all day). It's weird how easily we adapt from one season to the next so that the previous one seems like a distant memory.

Glad you're home too.
It's nice to get away but I am always glad to get back to familiarity... even if it can be stifling sometimes.
Hope you settle back in easily...

Good to have you back. Yes, walls cause claustrophobia, but the sun, dude, the sun relieves all which ails you, 'cept maybe skin cancer...
