Making my way back Home ... slowly.

Central Coast, CA
After spending two weeks in SoCal, I'm home.  Home sweet home.  I still have jet lag.  I had JL when I was in SoCal, but I fought it because we had places to go and people to see, but now that I'm home, I can see through blurry eyes that my calendar is clear, so I'm giving into JL ... sleeping later ... naps  ...  slower walks ... no phone calls, emails ... well, perhaps just a Facebook entry or two. 

Besides my 'Lady and the Sea book launch' party last year, our SoCal trips have always been focused on family, but this trip was unique.  This time we connected with friends; I lost count at forty.  The older you get, the more friends you accumulate.  Most were 'spur-of-the-moment' hook-ups (Hey, if you're free in thirty minutes, let's get together!)  Those who weren't able to hook up on a moment's notice, we'll catch next time ... if there is a next time.

Friends are like jewelry ... there's fine jewelry and then there's costume jewelry.  You ask me why I just wrote that?  My answer: I have NO idea!  I'm still suffering from jet lag.  I knew when I sat down at my iMac that I would be rambling on about whatever, and I was right.  So, on that note, I shall close and come back later ... after I've slept in, and after a few more naps.  Until then,


I wish you smooth sailing and oceans of blessings!


Costume jewelry ... priceless

I hear where you're coming from! It always takes me several days to get over a trip. Great fun while I'm away- but it takes it out of you!

See you in my books!

Nancy, I thought I heard a faint 'amen' out there! LOL! Be sure to tell me which book!

Glad we had our cozy time. So thankful we had a plunger, to suck us out of that chair.
missing you.

Debra, I wouldn't trade those few cozy moments for the world ... even though my left hip is still numb! Miss you too.
