our holiday is over, but my mind and body isn't ready for it to be. we spent 8 lovely days on hornby island, bc at my father in laws house on a lovely piece of paradise. how can you not want to extend your time on a quiet, breathtaking, soft sanded beach filled wonderland with lovely, friendly people?
we had a lot of good times whether it was raining cats & dogs or the sun was roasting hot, the drinks were poured, the food was a plenty and the company was to be treasured. as the years have gone by our close group of friends have all moved away and started their own lives. we try to get together once a year for a holiday to hang out and visit. it's always hard saying goodbye and starting the countdown till next year's gathering when we feel like we just said hello.
i found this holiday to be exactly what i needed. the joys of hanging clothes on the line to dry, cooking delicious meals for loved ones, laughter, showering outside in the open air, good books, crossword puzzles and scrumptious piano music played by my father in law was just what i needed. how does one readjust to computers, tv, schedules, alarm clocks, city life, traffic, bills and chores? i seem to be stuck and pondering this since sunday morning. what do you guys do to get reacquainted to your pre-holiday lifestyle? how do you incorporate those little getaway luxuries into your real life?
my question to you is this, what are your tips for simplifying life and for staying connected without sacrificing all other connections? how do you keep them all balanced and in sync? there must be a way to enjoy the simpler things alongside this fast paced world without losing all amenities. with summer holidays in full swing, i would love to hear your thoughts and your experiences and let's all help each other recover from the holiday blues together.
