Random 5 Friday

Heading home tomorrow, today is our last full day in Aruba.

Yes, I will walk the beach and visit my friends at the Butterfly Farm to say good-bye until I return next year.

Our suitcases will be much lighter and our flight will seem shorter...it always seems shorter, heading home. I think that's always a good thing!

Using lots of sunscreen, we all got great suntans and the only wound this year is on my daughter's leg. She scraped it climbing the coral on her way to their private "sauna" (shown below).

I did get homesick which is not unusual for me so I am happy to be heading home! Being with Moon and Copper again...being home...diggin and planting in the yard will do it for me while the Pres missed his remote, cable and our 55 inch TV a lot!!!

Sharing with you and those at


Oh You are going to have lots of memories to enjoy while you play in the dirt and the Pres watches his TV:) B

It's great to get away but I guess home truly is where the heart is and those two beautiful dogs, and that garden and that TV to of course.
I hope your daughter's leg will be OK as I believe coral scratches can be quite unpleasant.

So glad you had a great time on vacation. I get homesick less and less as the years go on, maybe I just really need vacation.
