Beating my heart and soul home

It's wonderful to be home! There's nothing as wonderful as being welcomed home by happy cats!

Three weeks away from my garden this time of year meant there were lots of surprises for me this morning: dogwood, azaleas, camellias, forsythia, pansies, stocks, iris, forget-me-knots, geraniums, sea lavender, sweet breath of heaven, wisteria, candytuft, lemon, lime and orange blossoms and even the first of the roses. It's spring!

I read somewhere and adopted the idea that jet lag is caused by traveling so fast that your soul can't keep up, leaving you in that exhausted, fuzzy state for a few days until it rejoins you. I definitely beat my soul home.

This time I also beat my heart home. We had one frequent flyer ticket for this trip, so I flew home Delta and Frank was on Continental. When we parted at CDG, I suggested we race home. I won. His flight from Paris was delayed, so he missed his connection and had to spend the night in Houston. I've only just picked him up from the airport.

Glad you hear you and Frank both arrived home safely. Thanks again for the great read!


Welcome Home! Oooh, I would love to see some garden photos, when you can!

How refreshing to arrive home to your garden in bloom! Glad to hear you and Frank made it home safely, even if your soul is still sitting in a cafe in Paris.

I loved your analogy about the soul and jet lag-so true.

I know you are happy to be home, Chris. But I'm sad that your Paris posts are over. Selfish of me, huh?


Hey, Deborah!

Now that I've been home a month, I wouldn't mind going back to Paris to do it some more--and I bet the weather has improved!

psi mom:

What an amazing pic of Notre Dame. It is really incredible, and hard to believe it was built so many centuries ago! Truly a timeless masterpiece.!
