Peaceful Morning

by Meghann on July 10, 2011

Good Morning!

Just another beautiful morning in paradise. πŸ™‚

I’m not sure if it was the prospect of a beautiful day on the beach or what, but I was too excited to sleep in this morning. I tossed and turned about 30 minutes before finally getting up around 6:30am.

I took advantage of the quiet island and went for a 3 mile walk along the beach. I desperately wanted to run, but my knee still couldn’t handle it. Unfortunately it could barely handle the 3 mile walk.

30 minutes with an ice pack and it was good as new. One of the many benefits of spending the week with my family is having half a dozen set of eyes telling me how swollen my knee looks and reminding me to ice it. I trust their opinion more than my own on the matter.

Another benefit is my Dad’s skills in the kitchen.

Pancakes? Yes, please!

Three pancakes, one egg, and a bounty of berries.

Nom Nom Nom πŸ™‚

The internet signal here is sadly disappointing. We’re running on dial up DSL and I can barely check my e-mail on it, let along do much else. Fortunately the main office of the island has a beautiful wireless signal that runs at lightening speed. It sucks to not have immediate access at the house, but I’m thankful to at least have the ability to access it somewhere. πŸ™‚

We’re heading to the beach for the morning. The dogs are so excited – they can hardly stand it!

Have a great Sunday!

I know it’s hard, but try to detach and enjoy your vacation as much as you can! We all deserve some rest and relaxation from time to time – even without electronic devices πŸ™‚

Sometimes, you just need a daddy (or a mommy) in the kitchen to make you feel better.

Take care of yourself, and use this time off! Maybe the sun/sand/saltwater will help out that knee!

I wouldn’t be able to sleep in if I was there either! Maybe it’s a sign that you have poor internet at the house- all the more reason to unplug and spend some quality time with the fam (and ice your knee, of course!)

I can always wake up so early on vacation because I never want to miss a second of the day. Too bad I can’t say that for everyday!

Dads always make pancakes better than anyone!
