There’s something about a week in paradise that puts you in a good mood. We arrived home last week from our annual trip to Hawaii, and I’m doing my best to keep that feeling of aloha going.
We enjoyed hiking, snorkeling, beautiful scenery, and relaxing with friends.
Th MR wants to try growing these beautiful trees with their vibrant orange flowers at home. First we have to determine what they are.
Do you recognize these flowers?
I’m kind of partial to these amazing trees. I love their sinewy branches.
I don’t think they’d work in our much less tropical climate.
Well, now that we’re home, what’s next. With our bright sunshine, our thoughts once more have turned to windows. Thursday, I removed all the screens, and Friday the window cleaners came with all their tools and an extremely large extension pole.
It’s amazing just how bright and sparkly our windows look after a good cleaning–definitely a worthwhile annual expense.
As Baby Girl heads back to school, the MR checks out new French doors, and I spend the next few days in a flurry of volunteer efforts, we are doing our best to keep that relaxed vacation feel.
When life gets busy, how do you keep that relaxed feel?
