This quote sums up Stay-cation 2013 quite nicely. I don’t think I’ve been this relaxed, rested and recharged since we went back to St. Lucia for our 10th anniversary.
Don’t get me wrong. There was a lot of physical work this week. But as hard as I worked and as tired as I was, I didn’t feel as exhausted as I did on a typical Friday at 5:30. A good thing to identify and understand.
On Thursday I planted some arugula and mache seeds as a little patio planter experiment. Look how far they’ve come:
Gs are ready for us to go back to work:
Poor animals are exhausted. I’m sure it has nothing to do with two of their lab-ish pals coming to visit yesterday and staying overnight. And it had nothing to do with them following us around for 10 days solid.
We’ve gotten a lot done and gained momentum on a number of projects. The office alas is not done. We had a couple of issues that delayed completion but we figure we can get the rest done this week and have it all set up by Saturday.
The moral of this story, however, is that you don’t need to leave town or go anywhere to have a real vacation. Sometimes what you really need is to stay home and spend time together.
