We returned from our European trip late last night. It was just about twenty-four hours from the time we left our hotel in Rome until we walked in our house here in Seattle.
Of course we are tired, since sleep patterns are all messed up, and we are jet lagged. But we figure the best way to deal with this is to keep going. We are all unpacked, most of the laundry is done, groceries have been restocked, bills paid, mail and email dealt with, and our kitty hugged and petted and stroked.
We spent several hours traveling to and watching our granddaughter Irene's soccer game this afternoon, and even did over an hour of yard clean up this afternoon.
We missed most of the autumn color this year, but there is still a bit left to appreciate, and then there will be several weeks of clean up before Thanksgiving, and then we'll be giving thanks that it is done.
Here are a few photos I took in the yard this afternoon.
Speaking of photos, I downloaded 2782 of them onto our desk top computer this morning. Now I will need to cull and edit and organize the photos into location files. I hope to start posting my trip report soon. I promise not to post them all!
We had a great trip, learned much, and saw some wonderful and historical places. Now, it's very good to be back home.
