Returning from vacation is always so bittersweet. It’s good to sleep in our own bed and the affection we’ve received from the cats shows we were greatly missed, plus our deck garden has greatly perked up while we were away! The peas are beginning to really take off (or are those actually morning glories… guess I forgot which, so it’ll be a surprise!), we have broccoli starting, the first little strawberry is forming, the tomato plant is blossoming, the pepper plants smell like jalepenos, and as you can see the the lettuce has gone nuts.
It’s still very hard to jump back into reality, though. Granted, at least it’s summertime so we have plenty of good weather to enjoy, but what now? We spent months and months planning this trip and it was so nice to have something to look forward to. It looks like we’ll just have to start planning another adventure, and we have a few in mind. Time will tell, and in the meantime, we have plenty of time left this summer to go on drives, camping, and whatever else we decide to pass the time.
In the meantime, we’ve started recapping our trip on our Random Trippers blog.
