I have been spending my mornings reliving our trip as I edit and organize photos and prepare blog posts for each destination. It is a lot of work, and very time consuming, but I am doing it as my way of creating my trip albums. A friend ask me this morning if I was going to print up any photos, and I said no. This time my albums will all be virtual. That way anyone can see them, as quickly or as slowly as they want, and they will be stored on the cloud, and not take up shelf space.
Thank you to those of you who have been writing comments. What is a labor of love for me could be just a too long bore for others.
I still am dealing with some jet lag. It has been a long time since I had a full, restful night's sleep, but I feel myself slowly recovering.
We went for a three mile walk yesterday and then my legs hurt all night, so I am going to ease back into exercise slowly. We walked so many miles and climbed so many steps and picked our way carefully over so many cobblestones and ancient slabs of marble during our travels that I about wore my legs out.
I do need to get back to exercising though because I gained about five pounds on the trip, thanks to all that food on the cruise ship. So any tempting desserts!
We have been enjoying sunny weather since we returned a week ago, but it has taken some time to adjust to the cold that has moved in. It never dropped below 60 where we were for three weeks. We have both spent several hours a day in the afternoons working in the yard, getting the fall clean up done. There will be more raking to do once all of the leaves are finally down.
And there is still soccer - grandkids games on Saturdays for another week and Sounders playoff games yet to come.
We're slowly getting back to normal here in the real world.
