This Ol' Farm Feels Like a Long Lost Friend

I made sure you didn't miss me, but I have been away.

Hubby and I went on vacation, and returned just about an hour ago. We came home to find the house sitting on 60 degrees - BRR!

We spent some time at North Myrtle Beach. We only had one bad day of weather, which was yesterday.

I took my laptop with me but on the first night there I became concerned about the security of my Internet connections and decided to put the thing in the car and forget about it. I don't seem to have had anything compromised, although the spam box of one of my gmail account seems to have more sex spam than normal, but it is hard to say. I don't check my spam box that often.

Also, I don't have a smart phone. All I do on my cell phone is talk on it, so it wasn't much help. I think it was the first time I finally understood the desire for the smart phone, though.

But not being in touch also had its perks.

We had a nice time. Unfortunately I was sick the entire time, still, and whatever I have been fighting (some kind of sore throat/respiratory thing) decided to rebound Monday night. I was in Damon's getting ready to eat a few of their wonderful BBQ ribs when my throat suddenly started feeling like someone was scraping a knife down it.

I won't bore you with the details of the trip; we spent most of our time sitting on the beach. I read books, he read magazines, we watched the waves and people. We went there to rest and that is exactly what we did.

I'll post some photos later in the week, though I'm pretty sure I didn't take anything spectacular.


  1. Glad you both enjoyed a restful vacation, but sorry to hear you are still battling the crud. Hope you're feeling better again soon!

  2. Ay time away from home is a good time and blog posting is often hard to do because of various issues. With us it's usually that we are tired after being out all day or the motel wi-fi is so spotty. Luckily, we have never had any security issues, but better to be safe then worry. Sounds like reading and people watching were good activities and things we do too. Sorry to read you were feeling badly and hope you will be feeling better soon.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
