Wake up sleepy head................
I awoke to pouring rain this morning, my first day at home after a wonderful weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina. I had planned to be up early, taking a walk, doing laundry, and checking the garden - instead I turned over and slept a bit longer. Now here I am in my usual place enjoying my usual coffee......and at least the laundry is going!
Visiting with two sets of precious friends kept us hopping. Treasure hunting at the antiques mall and a visit to IKEA (because we don't have one here) was fun but tiring. Each night we were definitely ready for bed after busy days in hot temperatures.
Falling into bed last night I couldn't help thinking how lovely ones own bed is. Our first hotel on Friday and Saturday had a bed much too cushy and soft, we awoke with back aches......remember we're old! It also had an air conditioner that clanked and kept us awake. The last night in another place was better - firmer mattress, quieter a/c - but only after having to change rooms before we unpacked because of a leaking bathtub faucet.
Lovely to go traveling...........wonderful to be home!
