I went on a lovely vacation this week. It was at a very cool place called Kelley's Island, and even though it's a small piece of land, I discovered near the end of our vacation that there was quite a bit to do there.
Overall, the trip was wonderful. I read and read and read (slowly), and finished the second book of Donita K. Paul's DragonKeeper Chronicles. I also started The Maid of Fairbourne Hall by Julie Klassen. I'm not very far through it, but it's getting better as I keep reading.
I also did some bike riding, which was fun (and slightly terrifying). I hadn't done it in ages.
Anyway, the whole thing was very relaxing, and it reminded me that I need to slow down more. There's no need to rush, especially on vacation. Those are supposed to be slow, so you can get caught up in life. And I think I did (a bit).
p.s. i'll be doing a bigger vacation post later, but i don't have the pictures edited yet, and i wanted to say hi. so...hi. :)
