Home: Slice of Life Tuesday

11454297503_e27946e4ff_hWhy not share a Slice of Life with us!

Home sweet home!

Don’t get me wrong, I loved walking on the beaches of San Juan, Puerto Rico and taking my new purple bathing suit for its maiden swim in the Marriot pool, and reading like a demon– finishing one novel and starting the next, but maybe Tuvia’s love of home is coloring my views.  Now he’s a bit extreme.  He loves to get away and loves to come home but he gets bored way too fast.  We were away for 4 nights and 5 days.  He was done with beach life on the 3rd day.  NOT ME!!!!

But we are back in the white cold with the promise of an upcoming storm to delay the start of a new PD project that’s scheduled for Thursday.  What’s good about being home is I am up early with the energy I need to get back to work, with the drive to pick  up my guitar that’s been gathering dust for the last few weeks.

Yes, it’s good to prepare for a trip , to take a trip but to be home, to be back in the familiar…

I’m loving that.

Hey, we have a March Marathon coming up, don’t we?

  1. There’s always a renewed energy in your writing when you return from a trip. It’s great to step away from the mundane life, but it’s great to get back to the routine. I’m heading west (in the car) as I write. I need sun and warmth for a few days. 😄

  2. Welcome home, Bonnie! Your trip sounds divine, but there’s something wonderful about being in familiar surroundings that’s great too.

    As for the snow that’s coming this week, I’m not a fan. Sounds like you’re really going to get dumped-on in NJ. (Mexico cannot get here soon enough for you, right?)

  3. It is always a pleasure to return home, I agree, although I like the adventure too. Happy for you both that the trip went beautifully & that you’re back home enjoying that, too, Bonnie! We have warm weather coming this week, so perhaps coming your way by the weekend?

  4. Getting away for a few days is always great. Coming home is, at least for me, always better. What memories we have to cherish for years afterwards. Glad you had an enjoyable time.
