Home feels good

After being gone for several weeks, we are back home in northern Oakland County. It's always fun and exciting to travel. But the return has it's moments.
We were travelling or waiting in airports for flights for over 24 hours. It will take a few days to put jet lag behind us and get back to some semblance of order.
Two large boxes of mail greeted us when we returned. Then begins the task of sorting; this pile for reading, this one for bills, one for reading later, and of course in our times, the shred pile.
We left Germany withs temps in the high 60's or low 70's. Arriving in Atlanta, it was mid 70's and sunny.
Talk about your large, busy airports, Atlanta-Hartsfield has got to beat everyone, hands down. Delta jets are pushing back, moving for takeoff positions often waiting in line or landing and coming back to the gate minutes ago vacated by another in many flights.
London Heathrow is another gigantic airport. We missed a connecting flight due to a couple of mix ups and wound up spending the night in a very nice, airport hotel, courtesy of British Airways.
It's good to be home, greet Molly and begin the process of settling back in just in time for hunting season.
Nothing can compare to ones own bed and daily habits, no matter how good the trip was.
