The Weekend and An Upcoming Trip

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had a bank holiday here yesterday that coincided with Memorial Day back home in the US. So it was a longer weekend. For the most part we hung out around home, except for Brit Boy's trip on Saturday.

As I mentioned in my previous post, Brit Boy went to see his favorite team play at Wembley on Saturday. Well, they didn’t win, but he really enjoyed the whole experience. I’m glad that he had such a good time. Check out his blog post about it here. While he was at Wembley, I stayed at home and chilled ;-)

When I wasn’t on the sofa this weekend, I was planning out things for my upcoming trip. I’m really excited because I’m going home to Georgia for a good long visit :-) Brit Boy accompanied me on the trip back in November, but this time I’m going on my own. He’s fine about it though. He will be fully engrossed in watching the World Cup while I’m gone…he will be in sporty bliss…LOL.

I’ll be back home in Georgia for nearly three weeks, so I’ll have plenty of time to relax, catch up with friends and family, and get invigorated. I love living here, but sometimes no matter where you are, you just need a change of scenery sometimes, you know :-) So it will just be good to get the jumpstart that I’m needing right now. I’ve been having a bit of wanderlust lately, so this will be just what the doctor ordered. I just hope that the weather is sunny when I get to Georgia…if it is, it will be like a tonic ;-)

While I’m gone, I’m gonna try to post a couple of photos each week to let you see what I’m seeing or doing on my adventure home. It will be sort of like a photo blog for this period of time I guess. I don’t know what the photos will be depicting, but that’s the fun in it…who knows what will show up in the photos…that’s the beauty of it all :-) So I’m intrigued to see what develops and I hope that you’ll check in to see what I have to share.

I don’t leave until next week, but now that the day is drawing near, the days are going fast. I’m busy making lists and thinking about what to pack and more importantly…what NOT to pack…LOL. Decisions…decisions.

So I’m off now to add to my list. I’ll be sharing my progress this week as I prepare for my trip across the Atlantic. :-) Have a great week!

When are you going Dori and how long will you be there? I couldn't tell from your post. I'll be stateside in a few weeks myself for about two weeks, but it sounds as if you may be back before then.

Oh my goodness you're coming home for a bit! I know what you mean, I get kind of homesick, too. I was just thinking about Prague and a few friends the other day. Hope we can go next year (Mark never been there).
Have a safe trip and I'll be looking forward to your photoblog!
Hugs,
I.
