Essay — Home Again

Thanks for sharing this!

Carpenter Country sure looks good since I returned from my cruise.

I know the trip only lasted a few days–actually four fabulous days spent lounging around a pool, cruising the food bars, walking from one end of the ship to the other, checking out Nassau, and enjoying a marathon card game of Hand and Foot with a good friend.

Plus, when I arrived home, the guy that shares my space had the house spruced up, and lunch waiting. Outside, the flowers were blooming, the bluebirds were singing, and my friendly crow was cawing for a handout.

Until the next vacation, which is booked but still a month away, it’s back to the familiar routines of cooking, cleaning, gardening, and my favorite thing to do–writing.

I’m glad for the time between excursions. Leaving Carpenter Country isn’t as easy as it used to be, maybe because travel is getting more complicated.

However, as long as all my moving parts keep working and there are friends to visit and new places to see, I’ll keep hitting the road.

And when the next trip is over, I’ll be glad to be home again.

At least for a little while.
