Have now returned from our glorious two-week vacation which had three parts: a long weekend visiting pals in Portland (from which leg of the trip comes the quintessentially summer vacation image above), a week being tourists in Seattle (a new city for me, and a lovely one), and a few days of "staycation" at home (eating in restaurants! playing with the daughter in the middle of the day!). A great time was had by all. And now I just hope that this overall feeling of relaxation, contentment, and well-being will stay will me beyond about 9:00 this morning. Will do my level best to see that it does.
