Last week I was on staycation. It was the best time I’ve had in ages – refreshing, exhilarating, but relaxing, too. Early Fall, perfect outdoor weather, rocky rivers, deserted beaches, a lake in the middle of town… comfortable, cozy accommodations with all the amenities to which to return after the day’s activities — everything I would hope for in a vacation, seeing as how I’m not a city kind of girl.
Having Wally reminds me of when our son was little and it didn’t matter where we went or how often we’d been there… we’d have a good time watching him have a good time and, oh boy, did he ever have a good time! What a great place to raise a child or a puppy! Our photo album is full of pictures just like this from those days, but with a boy and his big fluffy white dog, Otto, running down the hill. What a pair they were. My heart is full of those wonderful memories.
Now, it’s just the two of us and Wally, rediscovering favorite playgrounds, making new memories.
Developing life skills.
Experiencing the wild joys of living…
Happiness, love, gratitude, adoration, integrity, innocence.
I’m back at work now…sigh… Vacations are never long enough, though there’s always the weekend to look forward to. Have yourself a wonderful day!
