I still have my sea legs...the feeling that I am still bobbing and swaying on the water!
Walking in the front door I felt like I'd been away for much longer than 2 weeks.
I felt happy to be reacquainted with my household and all my bits and bobs.
I threw open the doors and windows wide as the air was stuffy and stale...the weather is hot!
I have unpacked the totes and stowed them for the next trip.
A mountain of dirty laundry has covered the floor and I am sorting, washing and drying...it looks like about 6 loads. I did spend several hours in one of those marina laundromats last week but I've taken off the bedding and all the towels which make up the bulk of the pile.
I had a walkabout in the Garden to familiarize myself with what is blooming and to check on the weeds...they have grown and spread...I'll be out there tomorrow to start to sort them out.
Climbing Royal Sunset
glorious and fragrant
These blooms are full blown and I'll be dead heading them soon
I picked a posy full and popped them in water to sweeten the air inside the Bungalow
If memory serves, this is Rosa Pink Fairy
I grow these for fillers in my flower arrangements
they last well into the fall outside
and can be dried inside for months.
I harvested some veggies for dinner
It's a scorcher here today
too hot to sit in the sun
Swiss chard, lettuce, new potatoes and green onions
all scrubbed and ready
I am going to pour myself a cold lemonade
and go and sit for awhile before I prep the dinner.
It's good to be Home
going away is divine
when I return
I am delighted to be back.
