There never seemed to be enough time for all the Tour Director wanted to show us while on vacation. Hence we got up early and went to bed late nearly every day we were on "vacation." I'm not really used to coming home from vacation tired out; but this time we did. Then in just a couple of days it was time to drive to Henderson, NV to see my daughter and her family for Thanksgiving. That was fun and I didn't have to do any of the cooking -- but it was a lot of noise and good-natured arguing having so many family members together -- another thing DH and I aren't used to. I mean, even our DOG is laid-back.
So as we started our drive home Friday morning we decided "spur-of-the-moment" to detour to our summer home in the mountains. It has been exceptionally warm, so we figured it would not be too cold up there either, even at 5000 feet. And we were right! It was cooler inside the house than it was outside. And we were surprised at the small amount of leaves that were in our yard. But we have trimmed back a few plants since we're already had a frost up here, so I cut back the asparagus, which takes up an entire end of our raised garden. I cut the rose bushes back and that's about the extent of our outside work.
The peace and quiet has been great, but tomorrow we have a company coming to install a satellite TV service, so we can get more than the 5 channels we are now stuck with. Who knows we might want to spend more time up here depending on how things go with government. I love to watch HGTV and that will be available, and DH watches only FOX news. So I guess we will be up here until Tuesday or so. By then I'll be ready for hustle and bustle again.
