Let me ask you a question:

Are there words you avoid using when you write?  For instance, I never use the word “very” on my blog page.

I Will Be Missing For A Couple Days

I Will Be Missing For A Couple Days..

Not to alarm anyone, but I will be absent for the next couple days.  I am having a medical procedure done today and it will take a couple days to recover.  Nothing major at this point as my doctor is conducting this procedure to rule some things out.  With that said it isn’t a simple procedure either so I would appreciate prayers if you would be so kind.

I am going to go ahead and schedule my Question post for today and Tuesday, but I will not be responding to comments until Wednesday or Thursday.  I hope everyone has a great week!

Sundays Are My Favorite Day of Rest and Relaxation

Sundays Are My Favorite Day of Rest and Relaxation…

 

Some might call me old-fashioned, but I don’t do much on Sundays.  When I was a young man I was taught to rest on Sunday and I still do to this day.  I don’t clean the garage.  I don’t straighten the house.  I don’t clean my car.  I rest.

I also like to be quiet around the house so my neighbors can also rest.  My favorite neighbor is the guy who decides Sunday is the best day to operate every piece of noisy equipment he owns.  Mowers, weed eaters, backpack blowers are typically the main tools of offense.  For me those jobs are to be done on Saturday to allow for a day of reflection, family time and recharging batteries for Monday.

Oh and did I mention said neighbor usually begins at 7 am?  Lovely.

Maybe today I’ll read a little?  Or maybe watch some NBA basketball?  Or even golf?  We might even go for a stroll in the park with Bentley.

But work?  Not today.

I hope everyone out in the blogiverse has a peaceful Sunday with family.

My Favorite Part of Planning a Vacation Is the Anticipation

Danny

My favorite part of planning a vacation is the anticipation…

I think I have said this before, but there is something about the excitement that happens  inside me when I am planning a vacation.  Evelina and I are going down to the condo in Naples in just under 2 months and I am beginning to get extra excited.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it is a basket of grouper and chips!

I have been doing research to find some things to do which we have never done and restaurants at which we’ve never eaten.  So far I am considering parasailing, bike riding, a sunset romantic dinner for 2 and a few other things.  I must keep the list short because we are only spending 5 nights in Naples before heading to Disney for 3 days.

At any rate, planning and finding new things has really injected a bit of excitement into my veins especially when I realized we are less than 2 months from leaving.

For me the excitement begins to build when I start planning our route, designing a budget, scheduling reservations, etc.  Looking at new places to eat and pictures of the ocean begins building an anticipation inside me that wants to erupt like a volcano.  Each day of research uncovers something new for this trip or something I might want to put on the agenda for a future trip.

I just love the little adrenaline rush that planning a vacation releases in me.

Let me ask you, what is your favorite part of planning a vacation?   And where might you be headed this year?
