Home Sweet Home...

While I professed to be slowing down with my blog posts of Slow Down Therapy, I was actually NOT doing any such thing as relaxing or slowing down.  Mr. C and I went on holiday.  The trip we had planned last year but missed due to unplanned activities by Mr. C on Summer Solstice 2013.  Thankfully he is recovered and we have been able to celebrate his amazing recovery and life in some beautiful and breathtaking places. This is the two of us as we left our home to begin our journey.

We drove to San Francisco and parked our vehicle at a Park and Fly hotel.  Here I am on the shuttle to the airport.

 And here is Mr. C on the shuttle.  I will share lots more of our trip in upcoming posts.  We took lots of photos and it will take me a while to upload and organize them.

This is just one of our amazing places we visited.  Do you recognize this?
Thank you to my faithful followers for hanging in with me.  We chose to travel without any modern technical devices...not that I own or use any even here at home.  It is amazing how Wi-Fi is covering our planet. Every place we were there were thousands of people on their cell phones and tablets and whatever else they have. It is so good to be home now.  I love traveling but the logistics and schedules are hectic and harrowing. Unfortunately upon our landing I had to go straight from San Francisco airport to my doctor.  I had gotten sick half-way through the trip and my throat was flaming and I was coughing more and more as my chest got heavy.  Fortunately I am on the mend with antibiotics now.  My doctor has no idea what I got as I was exposed to every nationality on this earth so he just wanted to knock it out of me since I already had it for almost three weeks.  After four days and nights with NO sleep I have finally gotten a good night of sleep last night. I even skipped fireworks and celebrations for good old fashioned sleep and feeling better.  I was very relieved to wake up way too early this morning and see that our uber dry forest is safe.  I am eternally grateful for our house sitters for taking such good care of our home and property while we were gone.
Now I shall get into my blog groove and see what you all have been up to.  It will take me a while but I will visit each of you.  Now to find my Creative Muse whom I put on hold while gone.  I never even touched any type of hand-craft while gone.  This trip was totally for Mr. C and his passions...yes we ate well!
Summer Sparkle and Creative Bliss...
