well, our trip down to NC has come and gone and now we are back home again.  
and we loved every minute of it.

the family
the friends
the sunshine
the movie watching
the boating
the great food
the even better conversations
the reading
the relaxing
etc, etc, etc.

i always schedule a "buffer day" for myself after coming home from a trip - a day off after we've come home to unpack or re-adjust to the time zone or take care of errands or whatever.
today was my buffer day.  we were up at 6 am like it was already midday (well, it was 9 in our heads, after all)  daniel went off to work and i set out to cross things off of my to-do list.  a couple of hours in, i felt kind of ...blah.  a combination of the weather here (considerably cooler than on our trip), the lack of sunshine (it finally came out in the afternoon) and some frustrating news that i found out were probably to blame.  

i sat there for a bit, not sure if i was sad or irritated with the situation, and then decided to head off to the farm market for some retail therapy (for some girls its malls and clothes, but for me? shopping for produce!)
before long, i was back home enjoying some of the fruit i had picked up.  i gained enough steam to unpack and even tackle the ginormous pile of laundry that resulted.  and after i wrap this up, i've got a late afternoon run and dinner to look forward to.  yay for a productive buffer day.  and tomorrow, it's back to work/real life!  :)
