The Sunday Salon - Getting Back into the Swing of Things

I just returned from a lovely week in the Dominican Republic. We had such a great time. When we first arrived it was pouring rain all day and we were a bit nervous that the entire week would be that way, but it wasn't. It was a lovely, restful week and we ate way too much food (but it was sooooooooooooooo good!)

I managed to read a few books...Through the Grinder by Cleo Coyle, Devlin and the Deep Blue Sea by Merline Lovelace, Die Before I Wake by Laurie Breton and I'm almost finished reading 74 Seaside Avenue by Debbie Macomber. Not a bad book in the bunch! What a pleasure to be on the beach, away from home, the computer and TV and just be able to read. I did a few other things too, of course, but I did manage to read and bury myself in books.

I gave myself an extra vacation day, so I don't have to go back to work on Tuesday. I'm easing my way back into my real life...there's a ton of laundry waiting to be done, but I guess that can wait for tomorrow...I'm off to catch up on my blogging and emails!

Have a great week everyone!


  1. Glad you had a lovely holiday. The Dominican sounds wonderful. The idea of being able to just relax by the pool, with a cocktail and a pile of books sounds fantastic.

  2. It's good to have you back, Yvonne! I am glad to hear you had a great time and that the weather improved.

    It sounds like you got some good reading in there. Always a plus!

    I do that too--take an extra vacation day, usually a Monday so I don't have to rush back. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a good week.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful holiday! And reading is never amiss when you have free time and beach space, I have to say. Glad to have you back!

  4. Scrap Girl - It's such a pleasure to just be able to relax and read... you're right, the cocktails were a plus too, especially since it was an all inclusive and I could have as many as I wanted without paying :)

    Literary Feline - I love taking that extra day - especially with all this laundry I have to do. Even though most of the clothes I can't wear right now as it's still too cold, but who wants dirty laundry stacked up?

    Meghan - It really was wonderful and not to have to worry about anything is a definite plus!

  5. your vacation sounds great!! welcome back! :-)
