Friday Fun

We arrived home yesterday, late afternoon; we then picked up our little furbaby, headed to the grocery store and came home. It feels so good to be back; love our trips, but love heading home. Needless to say, Hunter was over the moon excited to see us. He had a great time with Lily, but all evening he just crashed. I would say, he played hard while we were gone. I was really close when I took this photo and he never even opened an eye.

There were so many great things about our trip~getting to have lunch in Pike's Market in Seattle during our layover, having time alone together in Kauai, great weather, hiking and exploring new areas, seeing Monk Seals and talking to volunteers, great seafood; there were a few not so good things for me~getting overheated while hiking one day, being considered a buffet lunch for mosquitoes another day. Our flights were easy and staying in Seattle overnight is always a much easier alternative for us. However, there was a problem with the bathtub faucet and I didn't sleep much Wednesday night. I certainly made up for it last night though. It is so hard to believe it is Labor Day weekend; where did our summer go?! Fall is in the air here; in fact, we watched football on t.v. last night. I have lots of laundry to do and more grocery shopping tomorrow as well as picking up my new glasses today. Right now Hunter is standing at the cabinet whining-his way of telling me that he missed his salmon treats while I was away. I'm going to take him for a walk before I begin all my chores. We don't have a lot of plans for the weekend~we are having our realtor and his family over for lunch on Sunday as a thank you for all his hard work for our family the last 9 mos. Our town has its annual Harvest parade and also art & wine festival-so we'll see if we go to those.
Photos of Kauai will start next week. May your day be sweet and easy!

  1. Welcome home; Dorothy was right... there's no place like it! :)

  2. Glad you mostly had a great time and yes sadly Fall is almost here. We had the last long weekend last week and it poured. We were not happy. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Welcome home. Hunter looks happy to be back to the normal pack!

  4. Happy to hear you had good times on your trip...try to forget the not so great ones (like being a human smorgasbord)! Rest well this holiday weekend and enjoy your cooler weather as we are to be at 110 again tomorrow!!! :) Blessings

  5. Welcome home! Happy weekend!

  6. Welcome home! Home is always best! Hunter must be a happy little boy!!

  7. So glad you had a good time Noreen! Also glad to hear that Hunter had an awesome vacation with your daughter!! Looking forward to the pics. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs!

  8. I'm so looking forward to our upcoming trip (in 2 weeks, we'll be there!), but I know that when our time there is over, I'll be so ready to head back home.

    Hope your weekend is a restful and enjoyable one.

  9. Glad your back and had such a good time. Love the pic of Hunter! A relaxing LONG week-end sounds soo good! I'd be giddy if Fall were in the air here, but no such luck. Going to be in the 90's all week! Relax and enjoy yours!

  10. Glad you made it home safe and sound. Happy to hear that Hunter had a good time. I can't believe it is Labor Day weekend either. I look forward to the Fall but I'm not thrilled that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. That is cute that Hunter is wanting his treats. Skye does that, she lays by her drawer until we give in. Have fun at the parade and the art & wine festival, sounds like fun! Debby

  11. I'm so glad you made it through that overheating episode okay. That sounded scary.

    Welcome home to the start of fall. We already have some yellow aspen leaves up here. The first frost won't be far behind. But, with all the rain, I find myself remembering the floods a year ago - no repeats of that, I hope.

  12. Can't wait to see your trip photos, Noreen! How wonderful to go, yet wonderful to come home as well. Enjoy your week!
