Welcome back! Your vacation sounds wonderful. Can you reveal your escape destination?

Holly Ruggiero said...

Ah, vacations are treasured events.

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Looking forward to having one...sometime! Hope yours was wonderful. :)

Clarissa Draper said...

You and I obviously don't take the same vacations. This is my vacation:
Family.
Children.
Crying children.
Complaining children.
Complaining family.
Sightseeing until the feet fall off.
Eating too much.
More complaining.
Aw, you're going already?
Finally home.
Washing loads of dirty laundry.
Back to routine.
Wishing I was on vacation.

VR - Galveston Island

Holly - This one was for sure.

Elizabeth - This was the best one in a few years. Totally relaxing.

Clarissa - LOL! The laundry is the same. I'm finally done after umpteen loads.

Manzanita said...

Bingo (my bad typing started to write bimbo... you'd say "What the?" I'd never say that, Carol)
It's a winner. I agree with every single one this time. I could have written the list.
I wish you happy Friday and a peaceful Easter.

Mason Canyon said...

Welcome Back. I'll go for the relaxing part. Sounds wonderful. Hope you have a great Easter weekend.

Janet, said...

Sounds good! But we never go to the beach, we like the mountains.

Colette said...

Oh that does sound like a great vacation. And of course you need a good book!

Carol Kilgore said...

Manzanita - There are times I feel like a bimbo :) Hope your Easter is wonderful.

Mason - The vacation was great. And I'm happy to be back. I've missed all of you.

Arlee - Maybe you ARE on vacation ... :)

Janet - I like the mountains, too. But not as much as the beach. I'm pretty much a Coastal Woman.

WELCOME BACK! :)

I'm glad you wrote THE BEACH because that's exactly where a vacation is best spent. I love the sounds of the seagulls & the waves & the smell of the sea air & the happiness that pervades the shoreline.

Carol Kilgore said...

Colette - And I took along a very good book by one of my blogging buddies.

Lisa - Thanks :) The beach relaxes and energizes me at the same time. Just love it.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Welcome back! It sounds as if you had a marvelous time. Colour me jealous.

Lydia K said...

Clarissa's post was so funny! But yes, those are some of the best things. I love the eating part, in particular.
;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Your top tens are so cool.
Oh, and you're my featured blogger on Monday. Just a heads up!

Helen Ginger said...

Vacations are the best! And since Beach is #1, I'll add, looking for seashells.

Carol Kilgore said...

Elspeth - Looking for the green crayon....

Lydia - I loved Clarissa's post :)
I ate my way through vacation. Burp.

Alex - Ooh, very cool! Thank you :)

Helen - I have one special one from this trip.

J.L. Campbell said...

Shopping and too much food sound lovely. :D People watching is good for all the writing you gotta do once you're back from holiday.

Jennifer Shirk said...

Glad to have you back!!

Ann Best said...

Happy Easter to you, too!

Glad to see your smiling face again.

Relaxing is #8 on your list here. It's #1 on mine these days. Relaxing and not worrying about whatever I can't do anything about!

Ann Carbine Best’s Long Journey Home

Carol Kilgore said...

J.L. - Yes, to all of that.

Jennifer - Thanks - good to be back, too.

Ann - I'm not a big worrier, but I do need to relax and recharge every once in a while from piling too much on my plate.

BECKY said...

Glad you had a wonderful time! I could SO use a beachy vacation! :)
Please stop by my blog; I'm having a book give-away contest.
