What a treat to have my laptop open on my own desk and to be sitting in my good, old back-friendly chair. We got in late last night, but I was too stunned to do anything but hie to bed. But that was after a visit with the kids and the dear Smudge who was perhaps not quite herself after enduring a myriad of two-month inoculations yesterday.
In a not unexpected twist of irony, we woke up to absolutely beautiful weather in Vancouver yesterday and were able to see the mountains more clearly than ever before. That was after three solid weeks of cloud and rain, or so it seemed. But there wasn't much time to enjoy them. We headed to the airport at nine o'clock PDT (after an atrocious breakfast out, I might add), and didn't pull into the kids' place until until almost eleven o'clock EDT.
And was it ever steamy here!! Temperatures reached into the 90s — very humid 90s too. After three weeks of it barely being warm enough to remove jackets, I was soon peeling off my clothes in a frenzy. There was no tease to that strip, let me tell ya.
So yes, we went from sweats to sweat in a very short period of time. But it's still great to be home, at my own desk, with a company-starved cat by my side.
