Hello there! I'm back and happy. I missed my daily jaunts over to my blog spots and I can't wait to wander around this evening. I have just a few photos to share. I am afraid we are extremely boring vacationers. Water. Sand. Way too much food.
We had a lovely view of the "fancy pink hotel" from our balcony. I liked sitting out there in the wee hours of the morning, soaking up the water view and the busy doings of the city.
The first few mornings, we ate vacation breakfasts. We couldn't keep up that pace. Jet lag. Four hour time difference. Laying around in the sand. One meal had to go. I liked these colorful dishes.
Last call for a cheese burger in paradise
And home for Jenny's birthday! I groggily joined Kelli and Jenny and the sweetie pie girls for lunch. I can't sleep on planes and it was an all night flight. I am so happy to see these sweet cheeked girls. I wish I could soar up to Ft. Collins and go "trick or treating" with CB, Finn, and Aria, too.
Jenny and Scott are blessed with a new home. They've been busy moving and are getting settled in their sweet house. So thankful!
I did some delicious reading while we were in Hawaii and I'll share about three good books soon. I have to say I found all the glitzy stores and merchandising exhausting. I just had my backpack, stuffed with serviceable clothes to get me through the week. I realized that I have no heart for fancy stuff and if we go to Hawaii again, I want to stay far away from the label stores. Ugh. I really hated my swim suit by the end of it. Don't really like my Birks that served me all summer anymore. Bill said they are ugly and I kind of agree. I did buy two hippie bracelets. They are fun to look at. Oh, I wanted to show you my new haircut, didn't I?
What do you think?
I am so glad to be home to my peanut butter toast and English Breakfast tea. So happy to have a few days to rest and mark papers. I like home best. I like the smell of our house and our lack of mirrors. Good grief. There are way too many mirrors in hotels. I kept thinking, "Oh it's you again. Stand up straighter," when I'd look at myself. Enough already.
So, I'm going over to pop in on you guys, see what I missed in Blog Land.
Thank you for stopping in to say hello!
Sunday, we'll go over to Kelli's and trick or treat with two Sleeping Beauties and a chicken. Cute photos to come.
Sending BIG and REAL love your way and saying prayers of "thank you" for a safe getaway and a happy homecoming. (HUG!)
