♫♪ So Much to Say ♫♪

I'm back from the beautiful state of Georgia. As my title says, I have so much to say about my vacation, but it will have to wait a while. I also have so much to do around the house, and some of it includes writing!

I'm refreshed, revitalized, and rejuvenated!

"More than just yearly rituals in which we connect with friends and family, vacations are also exercises in self-definition. In affording time away from the demands of everyday life, vacations disclose what people choose to do rather than are required to do." -- CINDY SONDIK ARON

  1. Where did you go in Georgia? I'm a Savannah prowler. I think every eccentric in the country settles there.

  9. So glad you enjoyed your vacation with family, it is fun but for me it is very tiring also. I always say "The Old Grey Mare She Ain't What She Use To Be."

    Thanks so much for the visit to My Reading Corner today. How wonderful that you got to meet Kelly O'Connor McNees. And you're right I did love her book about Lousia May Alcott. I would recommend it to anyone, who loved Little Women or any of Ms. Alcott's books.

    Thanks again for the visit and the wonderful comment. Visits and comments are always appreciated.

  10. Welcome back! I did not know that Georgia had wine country. But then, I am not a wine drinker. I would most certainly know if Georgia had Diet Coke country.

  15. I would love a vacation. Unfortunately it's just as hot somewhere else as it is here. Maybe even hotter. So I am having a staycation.~Ames
