So. You probably want to see lovely pictures from our Florida vacation, right? Well, here ya go.
Pretty lovely, right? At this point on Monday afternoon, on our extremely long journey, I must admit that my heart was longing for peaceful, placid Manteo.
Fortunately, though, I had some wonderful traveling companions to make the trip (and all its traffic) go by a little more pleasantly.
There was Sarah who tapped away diligently at her computer keys for much of the trip, working on stories, edits, videos, writing and all manner of Esoteric and Creative Sarah Smith Projects. (She’s trying to do the whole “stroke the beard and look thoughtful pose” but it lost a little something in the absence of an actual, real beard.)
Of course, there was also our intrepid pilot, my own personal hubby. I gave him about an hour’s break from driving but other than that (and a few miscellaneous stops), he was behind the wheel from 7:15 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. He did marvelously and was especially entertaining after he’d had an extra cup of coffee.
And then there was this traveling companion.
Is it just me, or does it look like she has no head?
Of course, when your hair looks this bad, having no head is sort of a good thing. (She had just been in front of the air conditioning vent, which blew her ‘do hither and yon.
Summer did pretty well on the interminable trip although the sedative we had gotten from the vet that was supposed to keep her calm and help her sleep? Well, it didn’t really kick in until about 10 hours into the trip. And then it knocked her slap out and she slept blissfully for the last 90 minutes. I just love the way that her right let is casually looped over my right leg. Girlfriend is one cool customer.
Summer is being boarded here in Florida and we’ll pick her up again for the journey home. I miss my girl!
By the way, the Pregnant One and her Non-Pregnant Husband, are both doing fabulously. It’s been fun to get to see their cozy beautifully decorated apartment for the first time. They are such good hosts, even to the point of temporarily moving an entire bed into their apartment so that Steve and I would have a comfortable place to sleep. And I must add that it’s fun to get to sleep right next to Noah’s crib and to think that in just a few short weeks, he will be lying in there. Awww . . . .
Yesterday, I was outright, downright, unmitigatingly lazy. After the jam packed, crazily frantic days leading up to our departure and the 14-hour road trip, I didn’t even get out of my pajamas until 2:30 yesterday. .
Ahh. Laziness is a wonderful thing.
Today we will actually kick into gear and start doing Fun Floridian Activities at which point I will have more scintillating pictures to show you, rather than just traffic jamming and headless dogs sleeping.
See you soon!
