so i’m here. i got home around 5:30, played with the kitties, folded several loads of laundry and took off around 7. i got lost as the roads were not so clearly marked and i doubted myself. but i stopped at a gas station to ask for directions and was on my way after not too long.

i am in the middle of the redwoods right on the russian river. my hotel is a very quaint b&b. very cute and charming. very old victorian, and i love it. there is no cell phone range here and i don’t even have a phone in my room. in fact, i had to use a pay phone in the lobby! i don’t even know the last time i used one of those. thankfully, i had a couple of dollars in my wallet so i could get change. it’s $.50 to make a local call now, by the way.

my room is darling. the bed is oh so comfy with it’s pretty sheets and feather mattress and comforter. there is an old wash basin with a mirror that’s so old it’s a little warped — but warped in a very charming way. the bathroom is tiny, but still in the victorian design and for a small gal like me, it’s no problem at all. there are two comfy chairs and several small lamps, all quite pretty. i even have a small balcony that overlooks the river.

i’m right off the staircase, so there is a bit of noise right now, but i’m sure that will be over soon as the restaurant is closed for the evening. i’m sure hubby would be complaining now, though, or turning up the tv super loud.


when i got here, i wandered downstairs in search for a bit to eat, but found out they were done serving…but a kind waitress offered to make me a salad and a brie appetizer. i sat at the bar for a bit, nibbling away before i headed back up to my room.

i’m tired now. i unplugged the mini fridge as it was making too much noise. he he. i called hubby a little bit ago and he still sounds less than enthused about coming tomorrow afternoon. on one hand, i am fine with it, on the other, it really pisses me off. i’m going to cuddle up with a book and sleep. i miss atticus. tomorrow i’m going to go on a nice walk in the redwoods.

things have quieted down a little now. it’s sort of muffled now….

    I hope you managed to relax and unwind a little bit. Maybe when you get back things will look a little clearer.
