Now, for a few days there have been some rumors and comments that indeed I am not on vacation. For the record…I am on vacation.
These are the clouds which would wait until I got to the hotel before they opened up and poured rain all over the things I left in the bed of my truck. (Recyclables, not to worry.) The sky was pretty, even when the rain began. The rain has been off and on the whole time. It has made for some spectacular sunsets.
The Ride There
I try to be very careful when I travel, you know arrive alive and all that some such. I kept my eyes on the road…even before it got dark. After all, there are still a few people who care if I come home in one piece. For them, and the thousands of faceless causes for road rage, I even drove the speed limit. (Says silent prayer of thanks for inventor of cruise control.)
I hope you have already figured out I am not going to be writing a lot, just using the pictorial to get my message across…I am, after all, on vacation.
As many of you know, shopping requires specialty equipment. I came well armed. I consider these one of my favorite pairs of hiking shoes. After two miles of walking, no hurting tootsies. Complete victory. I absolutely love it when I win.
Shopping done. I hear the pool calling. I decided against fighting the frizz (remember, rainy, humid) and dropped the heels, skirt and peasant blouse for my swim suit and hit the pool. More miles…three of them.
Yes, the hot tub felt great when I was done.
Sharing is Caring
When the time came to go home, I decided the children needed a vacation as well. (I mean on top of being away from me for four days.) So, I got in the truck and drove to get them and brought them back with me to spend a few days away from home. Off to Memphis.
It did rain on us during the 800+ mile/12 hour turnaround, but we arrived in the room safe and sound and ready for bed. You should be able to understand this look from this morning…
The Peanut Gallery
I am hearing things like hungry, pooling (swimming), restaurant, store and vacationing. Likely, this all means the short ones are interested in being let out of the hotel room. Sigh. Glad I got some sleep before I went to get them.
I love them, no matter how much they drive me crazy.
Do not. I am reading comments on the BlackBerry every so often. Although, there were two complete days of radio silence. (And zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.) When I light, I will answer all the comments and questions. I promise not to bore you with any more of what we did on vacation. Hope you do not mind a couple more days of the strange posts.
