Daybook ~ vacation edition

Outside my window ... beautiful sunshine over the Smoky Mountains. It is cold here this morning. On the deck I see the evidence of a nocturnal visitor to our garbage can.

I am thinking ... that I have mixed feelings about going home.

I am thankful for ... Ronnie having a break from work, and getting to watch my kids thoroughly enjoy a real vacation. This is D's first ever and the first one JW will remember.

I am wearing ... blue jeans and a red t-shirt ... at least I will be once I go get dressed ... right now I still have on my jammies.

I am going ... home, via a 10 hour drive with a husband, mother-in-law and 3 totally wiped out kids ... should be an interesting day.

I am hoping ... for nice weather and that we can actually fit all the luggage back in the van.

I am hearing ... cartoons, and the kids aren't even up yet ... and Ronnie upstairs, finishing his packing.

Around the house ... we have to finish cleaning up before we leave. Shouldn't be too bad once we get all our junk out of here.

One of my favorite things ... returning home to a relatively clean house.

A few plans for the rest of the week ... LB's dance class will have a performance at a local elementary school in the morning ... should be fun to have to be there at 8:00 after getting home very late tonight. I'll spend the rest of the week trying to return to a routine before we start our summer session of school next week.

No picture today ... I didn't want to load my pictures on a borrowed laptop ... I'll add a few pictures of what we've been doing this last week sometime soon.

I hope you'll visit The Simple Woman to join in the daybook fun. You can easily create your own, or just enjoy reading all the other entries.

oooh, daybooking on vacation. Hmmm, our chosen spot doesn't have free WiFi, but we might decide to splash out and pay for a week's worth. If I can persuade hubby to take the laptop, I could blog while we're away.

Yes, coming home from vacation is difficult. Hope you have a great week at home that makes the break with vacation a bit easier.

How lovely to be able to 'Daybook' while on vacation. Things we see, feel, hear and wish for can be a little different when we're away from home.
Hope you really do have a good journey home.

God Bless,
