hello world. things have truly gone mad. this is the perfect week to escape the crazy of russia, the middle east, of all of it and just listen to the waves and soak up the sun.
hello massachusetts. it is a long drive from home to here, but the 90+ minute wait at the queenston/lewiston bridge is well worth it when we arrived 9 hours later.
hello sleep. the ocean air is wonderful for many things. i've shut off my alarm. so far i've managed to sleep a full 12-hours each night since our arrival. wow. i must have been way more tired than i thought!
hello freedom. the kids are now of an age to go wherever they want, whenever they want. i can drop them off at the mall or golf course or just let them go to the beach.
hello salem. cole has asked to go to salem, so we've got in on the "to do" list.
hello zappos & amazon. love online shopping!
hello constant activity. tennis racquets. volleyballs. rugby balls. frizbees. fishing poles. all manner of outdoor sport. the wind makes things a bit more challenging.
hello camera. my "big" canon 40d has been in it's case for far too long. i'm looking forward to reacquainting myself with it.
hello food experiments. in the last couple of years i've used this time away to discover new recipes. i find much of the food in the states to be over-processed so we buy a lot from the local market and cook from scratch. some years are better than others. let's hope this is a good one!
hello monday. you are my most favourite day of the week. i love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
what are you saying hello to on this brand new monday?
