on a vacation

So here it is, the day that I've been looking forward to, the day that I've been willing to come faster. Tomorrow we're leaving on vacation! Yay! Double Yay! It's been long overdue and I'm really dying for a break, to hand over responsibilities to others and just do nothing at all. Well, not really nothing, since we'll be traveling to several different places, for a beach vacation, for a vacation to the hills, for a vacation by the lake....yes, really, three different spots. And then there will be all the usual socializing and meeting relatives and friends. Fun but draining. I just hope I will get some time to just sit and not have anything on the agenda for a while. And of course it will mostly be an internet free break. See you in March. And in the meantime here are some photos that I took recently.

Having fun with my daughters letters! 

Before sunrise this morning. I love the blue haze that I caught here. 

Some last minute baking...dark chocolate chunk brownies with walnuts and marshmallows.

Achapams or Rose Cookies with a cup of tea one lazy weekend. We had some guests from Bangalore last week and I couldn't resist asking them to bring some of these for me. Reminds me of the time we lived there. Fond memories.
Lychees in the how we get fruit from all over the world. It's really fun seeing the labels in the strore, to see fruits and veggies from Peru, Chile, Thailand, Australia, India, Lebanon, Syria and so on.
