There’s no place like home

With all the worries of handling dog and baby, family meeting our wild one and whether or not the van would make it the 2000 mile round trip to Indiana, we are finally home…and I’m so glad to be home again! I loved visiting family and friends but there’s no place like home. I’m sure thankful for my own kitchen and bed, my own routine and for WiFi!

I’ve missed blogging and reading all of yours, I have so much to catch up on.

Here’s a small glimpse of the place I once called home, a place that is now strange to me. Unfortunately I worked most of my time there so I was only able to get out one day and then I quit early. It was so hot I thought I was back in Florida.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Seating



This interesting seating is a replica in the human inner ear. Supposedly its supposed to enhance  the sounds the woodland area and nearby river. I didn’t notice any difference but I still enjoyed the view.
