We’re Home

Yesterday was our first full day back from visiting our friends in Guatemala. We had a perfectly marvelous time, and yet, it’s good to be home. We are experiencing all the obvious feelings of loneliness for our friends and their warm climate, as well as happiness to see our animals again and to not be living out of a suitcase anymore.

We received a wonderful reception from Delilah when she spotted us. Pequenita was particularly audacious about seeking our hands-on attention. The horses… they were more subtle about acknowledging us. They calmly looked up and then continued to graze as we approached them.DSCN3324e

Julian picked us up at the airport and drove us home where Elysa served up baked treats and a fabulous Easter brunch she prepared. In a blink, Sunday was over and Monday morning meant Cyndie had to dash off to work while I faced the gory details of an appointment with our tax accountant and a mountain of laundry to be done.

Welcome home.

Ah well, we have a wealth of sweet recent memories to help sooth our return to the realities of our immediate responsibilities. I plan to write about our experiences in the coming days. It was a truly beautiful time with friends we love who have become like family to us.
