I'm Back!

I've returned from my mini-vaycay. Well I guess 10 days isn't technically mini, but I was only away from home for 5 of them!

I spent Memorial Day on Cape Cod... I had never been before, but had heard many good things. I was very pleased with the under-developed nature of the Cape... many of my favorite beach locations have become overcrowded due to so much new development and expansion of resort communities, but the Cape still seemed fairly rustic (although of course it has its share of beach clubs and golf courses.)
This is a picture I took from the boat... we weren't sailing, but aren't sail boats lovely?

After a weekend filled with movie-seeing (Angels and Demons... I didn't even check the time once=a good movie), boating, reading, eating and relaxing, I am excited to be home and back on the treadmill as I prepare to start work in a few weeks. Until then, I have to finish Bitter is the New Black... as QueenBee mentioned, I too have an affinity for chronology and I'm dying to read Pretty in Plaid... so I started at the beginning. Let me just say, Jen Lancaster is HILARIOUS. I know many of you are already fans and I'm preaching to the choir, but I have literally laughed out loud. It's been a long time since I've laughed that hard from a book. Movies and TV yes, but not a book. I have lots of other books on my list as well, but I'll tell you about them as I get to them... nothing like a little suspense (sadly my own attempts at humor probably won't land me a book deal from this blog a la Ms. Jen).

Happy Official Summer everyone!



  1. That picture is beautiful! I thought it was a professional one you found. Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Cheers to summer!

  2. Love the cape during this time of year before it gets too crowded. I'm reading Bitter is the New Black right now too, so funny!

  3. reading pretty in plaid right now- you will LOVE this book. there is just nothing like getting back onto the treadmill, is there? total control over your life. sounds like you had a great break and the minutes on the 'mill' will totally be worth it :)
