Ten on Tuesday

This week's Ten on Tuesday Topic is 
  10 Good Things About Coming Home From Vacation!

This picture was taken almost exactly one year ago when Tom and I had the opportunity to visit St. Kitt's and Nevis, because my sweetie is awesome at his job and earned this trip with other top performers for the company he works for. It was a wonderful trip! As wonderful as it was though, there is no place like home. Here are some reasons why.

1. Sleeping in my own bed! With my own pillow :-)  There's nothing like it.
2. Being back with my family. The kids are pretty grown up now, so we travel without them more than with them.
3. Routines. I like the familiar.
4. Favorite Foods.  I miss my English Muffin and Skippy Peanut Butter for breakfast when I'm away.
5. Knowing where all my stuff is.  I worry about leaving stuff behind, like my sunglasses and phone chargers!
6. Don't need to pack a bag every time I leave the room.
7. ALL my knitting options are right in the next room.  ALL of them :-)
8. Snuggling with my dogs. My little one is a true lap dog and right after she forgives me for being away, she just wants to be loved.
9. Catching up on what went on while I was away.
10. Sharing pictures and stories of our trip with whoever is interested.  Sometimes that's everybody, and sometimes that's nobody.  And that's ok.  The memories are still mine :-)

Hop over to Carole's Blog and see who else is participating this week!

  1. Isn't it funny how we like to have our yarny things around us? Great list! I totally agree with the routine part too. Such creatures of habit.
