anticipation, reliving, and appreciation

Disappeared on you there, didn’t I? Sorry about that. But, gosh, I’ve been tired! I did manage to drag myself to knitting last night, but only because it was on the way home. Rudi and I are heading to a 7 p.m. movie preview tonight, so hopefully that will help me feel a bit more peppy during the evening hours…

Three beautiful things from the past week:

1. Just before we left, they covered over Macy’s windows in the downtown store to prep them for the holiday display. The poster I saw this morning says the store will unveil them next Tuesday evening. It’s always exciting to see how they choose to decorate.

2. It’s been such fun looking at the photos Rudi and I took in France. (Rudi has started to get his online, but I’m a bit slower. I’m hoping to get them up over the weekend. Definitely before Thanksgiving.) I love how evocative photos are in putting you right back into a moment.

3. Posey, Jeremiah, and Della were very excited to have us home and seem intent upon preventing us from leaving the house again. John is a sweetheart and took good care of them for us, but we’re their people and they love us best. It’s good to come home to that.

Oh! I got the postcard from you and Rudi – thank you! I love postcards – especially gargoyle-y ones! 🙂

Wow what great photo’s!
I really need to organize the photo’s Steve and I took on out trip to the UK in May.
I have been thinking it would be easier to just load them to flickr. Thanks for the idea!
Hope you have a great holiday!

Jenn, Rudi loves gargoyles, and he thought you might, too.

Paula, aside from the time required to upload the photos, Flickr definitely makes things easier, at least from my perspective. I’ve seen some of your shots on your blog recently and would love to see more!

Your whole trip sounds so great! I need an adventure like that!

Sarah, it totally was! And you definitely need an adventure that doesn’t involve escaping from hurricanes and feuding family members!
