Hello, everyone! We arrived home here to Norway safely mid-week after a looong day of travel. I caught a cold just before we went to the States, and only now just over all that, and now the jet lag... so finally feeling myself again. We had a WONDERFUL time back home with my family, and a string of lovely days cramming in as much fun and cozy time with them all as we could. The two weeks sure went fast... Much of our stay was all about family. Most photos very much family-oriented too, which I'm really not at liberty to share here. Sorry, girls... But I know you understand. The photo above is from a trip to Petco with our niece, a big pet & pet supplies store/chain that has lots of different fish and aquariums for sale, among other small pets. It's almost like a mini-zoo!
Now that we're over the worst of the jet lag "fog," we're starting to get back into the swing of things here, getting the mojo back. Vacation is over--as evidenced by the mountain of laundry now awaiting me, household chores, etc.! Charlie is very glad we're back, though. He purrs constantly. He was so happy we're back, that when I opened the suitcase to unpack, he hopped in one of them to take a snooze, and as if to say, "you'll not be leaving now!"
Many thanks for all your very happy comments left here while we were away. Unfortunately due to the very unreliable internet connection at the hotel we were staying at, I wasn't able to get online much at all while we were Stateside. So I really look forward to catching up with you all now. Give me a couple of days to do that, and I'll be right back here too... ;o)
