Home From Savannah...Back to My Real Life...


Snowdrifts outside of my front door...my rose bushes really are buried underneath!
Welcome home!

I'm back home from Savannah, settling into my real life and I know for sure it was the best thing for me to do, to take some time away from my life. I feel like I was able to shut my mind off totally, to not think about anything stressful for an entire14 glorious days.

After a vacation, I always want to hold onto that wonderful holiday feeling for as long as I can. It's the feeling of relaxation, of not having to do anything that I don't want to do. The luxury of getting up when I want to, eating when I'm hungry, sleeping when I'm tired...it's fantastic!

There must be some way to manage to ease a little of that into my everyday life. I'm going to think about this, to see if there is some magic formula that would allow me a little of that happy vacation feeling on a daily basis.
Here are a few things that I'm going to try...


Photos help.
Looking at my album of Savannah photos gives me a little Savannah flavour in my day, even if the weather outside is frightful and cold.


Wine and cheese helps.
It reminds me of our group in the Forsyth Park House and the many conversations over many glasses of wine and plates of good food.
I had some wine and cheese tonight, while looking at all of my photos on my laptop.

Good friends help.
I talked with Leslie a couple of times and we decided to make Savannah in the spring an annual occasion.
By the time we finished talking, I had a little of that happy vacation feeling back again.

I talked with Karen today, and she is living in Savannah, in the process of starting their own piadineria in the Historic Center of the city.
By the time we hung up, I had a little more of that good feeling back again.

So, it's possible to hold on to the goodness from a vacation. I just have to remember to do a little bit of this every day. That way, by the time I leave for my next little holiday, I'll be less stressed, more relaxed...maybe.
It's worth a try, isn't it?

#106. Save your money, quit your job and move there!
That way, you'll be living the rules and not just reading about them.

Brenda-I know what you mean about coming home to cold and reality. I woke up this morning to 4" of snow, and by the afternoon it had snowed 7". I am tired of winter, and am really looking forward to our trip to Maui next month. Keep looking at the photos, drinking wine and eating cheese, and dreaming of warmer weather!

Huge snowdrift! I am behind with blogs again! I saved your trip to Savannah and nancyhol's trip report blog posts for this week to enjoy while in vacation. Just wanted to let you know that I was not ignoring your blog. Glad to hear you are planning Savannah as a yearly trip. I know how much you enjoy it there. Welcome home!

Oh my - how depressing. Crossing my fingers and hoping the the snow is gone soon.

Cindi Ruth,
Just think...Maui, Maui, Maui! It really is a shocker, isn't it? I always wish I could just stay a little longer...a little longer...

Thanks so much, girasole!:-)
And, thank you for taking the time to read my blog...I really do love Savannah and the south, so there is a hook there for me. No idea why that's there, it just is.

It is not gone YET!
Grrrrr..take me back to Savannah!!!

Happy to help; happier to chat on our Sunday.
Hang in there, Savannah is here when you want/need it.
p.s. still homeless... :(

Thank you so much! Honestly, it was so good to talk with you on Sunday. No home yet? Awwww, there's gotta be something gorgeous on the island... :-(



I think you do have a "hook" for Savannah, perhaps you can figure out a way to really make more time there happen for you down the road, and it is a fine place to be "hooked".
