welcome home

i must admit, i was suffering from serious post-vacation depression yesterday. i couldn't get the motivation to do anything. unpacking seemed like a chore that definitely needed to be put off for a few days. if i didn't have kids begging for breakfast i might never have gotten out of bed. a trip to the grocery store was looming and i didn't want to face it. and then with the 113 degree weather, i didn't know if i would be able to go on...
then i reminded myself how much i love summer. it is laid back enough so that i could put off unpacking for a day, but that didn't mean i needed to sit around depressed because we couldn't go on walks and play at the beach. i reminded myself how lucky we are to have a pool in our own backyard. and, honestly, what could be better than swimming, afternoon naps for everyone (!), and then more swimming. so, while it isn't my good friend june, july isn't so bad. and we did get to escape for ten days, so really, who am i to complain. plus, look where we ate dinner last night...


yes, indeed, life is good. sometimes we just need to remind ourselves... after all, who could argue with family, swimming and brats & potato salad out back. sounds like a good summer night to me... (oh, and i did finally unpack today, so don't start thinking i am too big of a slacker...). while we are on the subject of summertime and vacation i do need to say thanks to g.g. and grandad for giving us such a fabulous getaway and wonderful vacation. you know it was a good vacation when you are a little sad to be home.


and lastly, my ever-so-sweet husband built me a fence while i was out of town. and what girl isn't a little bit of a sucker for a white picket fence? so now we have a nice little area for our chickens to roam during the day...
