Home

You know, there's nothing better than home, in spite of the fact that you've just returned from the most relaxing, closest-to-perfect vacation ever (more about that during the week...probably after T-day). We enjoyed such a good time with the cousins, and then on Catalina and in La Jolla.

Even though the weather was gorgeous at 69 degrees most every day in the San Diego area, it was wonderful to return to the chilly temperatures that have finally changed the tree leaves to spectacular shades of crimson, maroon, mulberry, tangerine and gold. And it was nice to see green in more areas than just small patches here and there...as dry as it was there, it's easy to understand how the recent fires moved so quickly. The whole place is a tinder box. Even though the beds at two of the three hotels were very nice, the bed is just nicer at home (and after a long red-eye flight, we hopped in the minute we got home...aaahhhh). Even though our cousins' dogs were lots of fun, it was more fun to get home to our own dogs, who were thrilled to see us.

Vacation is always nice, and this one was beyond description. But being home with my baby is the best! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone. We'll be cooking and cleaning like mad the next three nights.

I love the colours you used to describe the autumn leaves ... mulberry, crimson, tangerine, gold ... so evocative. Welcome home, Marc!
