Have you missed me? Oh please say yes :) Some of you have found me over on my literary blog, some of you have emailed me, some of you have even phoned and complained about the lack of posts. I'm sorry, I really am! I made a pledge to read a LOT of books this year and the only way to do it is to spend more time away from my computer. So I've been reading and reading and have just past the 50 book mark for this year so far! I'm impressed if I do say so myself. Can I make 100 by the end of December? I'm trying my best. You can see what I've read so far over on My Literary Travels.
But I've also been doing a bit of real traveling of course. We just returned from a week in Montenegro which was just amazing. We stayed in a beautiful boutique hotel right on the Bay of Kotor, which is just north of Budva. It is incredibly lovely. The mountains just dive straight into the sea which is almost always smooth and clear. We lazed around the pool a lot, drove up to Dubrovnik again, spent half a day on a splendid sail boat, swam in the middle of "the most beautiful bay in the world" (according to UNESCO), and ate fresh, natural food at every meal. Refreshed? Oh yes. We were to come home yesterday but I begged the Big P to stay one more night and he quickly agreed with my plan.
So now we're home again and I'm doing laundry which has to be packed back into my suitcase in an hour or two. I have a flight at 5 AM to Toronto via Vienna, and then I'll be flying on to Halifax on Monday afternoon. It seems like only yesterday I was spending time with my mom and dad (it was just 3 months ago!) and I can't wait to be with them again. This year I've been spoiled with so much time in Canada and with both my kids visiting us. Josh has been here two weeks and we'll fly together tomorrow. Hopefully later tomorrow we can run into an electronics superstore in Toronto and purchase my new laptop and a new Slingbox. Then I'll be all set once again and ready to blog all about it.
See you soon and have a wonderful Summer!
