Pete and I spent the last week on the beautiful island of St. John, soaking up the sun and swimming and snorkeling to our hearts content. I found ridiculously cheap plane tickets on sale back in July and snapped them up. What a fortuitous thing! I needed to get out of the house and out of the cold.
We left in a snowstorm and returned right after a second. Thankfully, our wonderful neighbors shoveled our walk and driveway so we could pull right in, unload the car, unpack our bags, and go to bed! Yesterday, I picked up the dog, sorted the mail, and washed five loads of laundry! Today, I rearranged the living room furniture and cleaned out cupboards. Now it's time for the opening ceremony of the Olympics. I hope I can stay awake!
