Back to reality...

Among many other things, travel has given me a new appreciation for home and it’s comforts. I’m not speaking of the mass quantities we tend to acquire and consume when at home, but the stuff you wouldn’t think you would miss. When I come home from an extended trip, I find the things I most look forward to are the daily tasks – washing dishes, sweeping floors, planning meals, preparing meals.

Routine can be a wonderful thing. As a child I obviously enjoyed the summer, but I looked forward to returning to school in the fall just as much as I had looked forward to leaving it. It was having a schedule and a routine again that I think I craved.

The funny thing about routine though, it won't take long for me to be over it again! Where to next? ;)


  1. Maybe you need to come to Alberta again. I will let you wash a lot of dishes ,sweep floors and plan and make all the meals you want!

  2. My gosh! The little one is standing already!?!?? Where does the time go?

  3. Sounds about right! Routine is good... for a spell.
