It really does feel great to be back home.
One thing I've noticed is that before you go away on vacation you kind of get into this rut about your housework and as much as you may enjoy your home, there is nothing like leaving it for a few days or weeks to renew your love for everything inside and even for the chores which at other times become redundant.
I'm definitely enjoying my renewed love in my home and everything in it.
Here I sit, my laundry is all done, I just have two loads to put away. My floors are mopped and there is a shine and a beautiful scent of Lavender permeating the air.
The beds are all comfy and clean with freshly washed linens and quilts and my dishes are sitting on the rack drying.
I look around and I see my children and husband enjoying their computer games, but, it hasn't been this way all day.
Early this morning we headed out to get groceries something we never do together because either the kids are in school or hubby is at work, so having everyone there was a welcoming change. After a quick bite to eat we returned home where Curt proceeded to mow the lawn in the backyard, just two weeks of being away and it was like a jungle out there.
There's been swimming in the kids pool, ice cream melting down sugar cones, water sprinkling in the yards and now, there's dinner on the stove......Swedish Meatballs.
You have no idea how much I missed cooking and for those that don't particularly like it, you may find that a weird statement to make, but believe me, I really missed being in my kitchen.
The rest of the day is going to be an easy going one. We still have two weeks together before Curt returns to work, we plan on visiting the Pioneer Living History Museum close by...yes I know, remember I said there were none around here, well imagine my surprise as we arrived in the Phoenix City Limits and saw a bunch of signs for one right here.
Not quite sure what else we will do, I'm sure we'll think of something fun.
So tell me, what have you been up to the past two weeks while I was away? Are you having a vacation this year or a Staycation? Any fun things going on? Let's chat, I've missed catching up with everyone.
Oh and btw, I do hope you have some coffee ready, I'm finally going to sit down after dinner and open my Google Reader, wish me luck and if you don't hear from me by tomorrow morning please come and rescue me, I'm probably drowning in new posts.
