Good To Be Home

Thank you for all the vacation wishes! It was great spending a week at the lake cottage, but it sure feels good to be home now. I missed by hubby, who stayed home to work and take care of things in my absence.

We spent a lot of time swimming in the cold Lake Michigan waters.

We all took turns on the kayak, but my 12-year-old niece Taylor enjoyed the best sunset on the water.

It felt good to sleep in my own bed again, shower in my own bathroom, and enjoy being home with Dave. I managed to get a little sewing done while I was away, and I look forward to more time for that over the next few days. Unfortunately, I’m NOT looking forward to returning to work on Monday. Hope everyone had a great week!

  2. I think there are only two bad things about a vacation, the laundry that needs to be done upon returning home and going back to work that first day. Ugh. Your photo s appear to say it was all worth it, though!

  3. It looks like you had a great vacation with your family. It always feels nice to get home though, there’s no place like home.

  5. Hey! Welcome home! Sounds like you had a wonderful time. The hiking and swimming and kayaking sounds like a blast. It always is good to go home, though, isn’t it? The best of both worlds, I say…

  6. I’m still jealous! It looks so fun and cool :)! Your nieces are not going to want to go back to China, not with all the fun going on here! What a great aunt you are!
