Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jig



As you astute visitors may have figured out, I have been out of town. It was my first true summer vacation with kids and husband in ten years. Last year's trip to Cordova was a blast but only four days long. I got back way, way late Thursday night. I walked through Friday like a zombie, then back to work on Saturday. I have unpacked both girls but not myself. I have not even begun to digest all the experiences and photos that go with our vacation. Look forward to some posts with interesting birds from South Carolina.

I have some serious chores to do on my days off. The most important being to come up with and submit a learning plan for this year for Zoey. YIKES!!!!! Wish me luck. Once I get that out of the way, I will be able to tell you all about the Rembrandt exhibit we went to in Portland, Oregon, the Columbia Gorge, swimming in Phoenix and settling down for some serious beach time in Pawley's Island.

There was also the drive to Cincinnati, that involved me getting to eat Skyline Chili twice and meet the incomparable Susan and her super-smart and lovely daughters.

And just so you know, the first thing I noticed in the morning when I woke to find myself back in Anchorage is that the shadows are longer, the quality of the light is moving to fall and the fireweed is spent. Sigh.....

You and the girls were so much fun, Trixie.
Move to Ohio. Now.

Trixie, your vacation was full of the best. Susan, family, fun. You must be EXAUSTED! I am glad you are back but take your time blogging and get that laundry done (tee-hee). I don't know how close you were to me in SC, I'll need to look it up. I'm still a new-comer in the southeast.
