Back at it!

08 Jul

First real vacation with the domestic CEO in two years, ten days at the lake cabin, morning coffee looking over the water, at least one fish caught each day, retaining wall and stairs built around shed, domestic CEO’s family 2 day visit, staring up at the night sky to see the Big Dipper and wondering what the Southern Cross looks like; what a great way to spend the holiday!

The creative batteries have been fully recharged as only being completely relaxed can do.  Yes, there was a lot of work done to finish the retaining wall and steps, complete with planters. However, there was also a lot of time spent sitting on the deck or in the boat doing damn little.

Most important was sharing our little slice of heaven with family over the 4th of July holiday. Because we have had such miserable weather this spring, I find it necessary to brag and say that the weather for our entire vacation was freaking fabulous!!!

So… I am back in the saddle and keyboarding away. The schedule I set before going on vacation seems even more attainable than before. Maybe I’m just bright-eyed and bushy-tailed but, even with all of the problems in the world, life doesn’t suck!

I just realized that I have overused the exclamation point in this post. Sorry, that’s what happens when you go on vacation. You lose track of time and rules.  😉

The WIP is calling. Need to feed the beast and write.

    Dennis, I’m glad you got to get away and recharge. So very important! (I liked the overused exclamation points–they said a lot. ; )

      Thanks, Anne. It felt good once the pain of building the retaining wall went away. 😉

      A man needs to know his place, I am the boss when she says that I am. a fact of life I have accepted. 🙂

    Sounds like a great getaway. Congrats on getting that retaining wall done–looks very professionally done. 🙂

      Thank you. It seems like every new one I do poses greater challenges. This one wasn’t very big but, had some technical difficulties to deal with.
