We're Back!

(Yes, those are kangaroos)

After two and a half weeks in Australia, we're finally back in good ol' NC!

We're a bit jetlagged but I got all of our laundry and unpacking done today and we're off to work again tomorrow.

We had an amazing trip and I can't wait to tell you all about it. There are way too many stories for one post, so I'll break the trip up into several smaller (but probably still long) ones over the next couple of weeks. I took almost 2,000 pictures and that's probably about how many days it's going to take me to sort through them all.

For now, the bed (MY bed!) is calling. It's good to be home!

Glimpses of Fall

Although it was still 90 degrees outside, by the third week in September I decided it was high time for fall to get here. So I created my fall centerpiece:


The flowers have since died and been replaced with Indian corn:


And our fall garden is doing well so far. We've got broccoli, cabbage, butter crisp lettuce and collards, along with leftover basil and rosemary.


Plus, our teeny tiny watermelon.


Lee grew this from a watermelon seed he saved and planted. Although we didn't have much hope for it growing any bigger, it was rather depressing when Sugar got a hold of it today and chewed it up. So much for a December watermelon.
