Long day

This has been one long day. I rolled out of bed at 3:45 this morning and was sipping coffee a few moments later.

After a shower and breakfast, I was on the road. It's an hours drive to the airport, and I wanted to arrive early to avoid any snafus.

As it turns out, I was on Santa's "Nice List" and I sped through security. I began to worry that I'd forgotten my deodorant, but that wasn't the case.

The flight was uneventful, which is the way I like for flights to be. The sky was blue, with big fluffy clouds.

I arrived in Orange County just after lunch. The hotel is very nice, with a balcony that looks out toward the ocean in the distance.

Did I take a stroll down to the water? No, I took a long nap.

My internal clock is all wonky because even though my clock only shows 7:27 p.m., it's really 9:27 Alabama time.

So, I'm going to drink some hot tea and turn in early tonight.


  1. Taz, Calliou and I miss you.

  2. Sometimes you just need one of those early nights... especially when you have had a long busy day :)

  3. I'm glad that your flight went well and everything went like clock work. I think that a long nap instead of a long walk at the beach will be more beneficial. The brain works better with sufficient sleep.

    I can see you are being missed at home.
    Have a safe trip back.

  4. Oh, you're staying at the Island Hotel - very nice! You're actually just around the corner from where my parents live. It's very overcast today but that's ok - there are no bad days at the beach! Enjoy your conference, and hope you were able to reset your internal clock a bit.

  5. That's a really nice place to crash! I'm long overdue for a vacation... :)

  6. I would love to get on a plane and fly off someplace

  7. Beautiful pics and I hope you have beautiful weather. I also hope a quick walk on the beach is in your future! It would be a shame to go that far and miss the Pacific...take care!

  8. It will be so nice to look out your window at that wonderful view.

  9. Looks wonderful...rest up and enjoy!
