Birds Of A Feather

March 16, 2012

By some miracle (perhaps all that cake before bedtime so there was no room for middle-of-the-night hunger!), I slept a glorious 9 hours. Much needed after a week of tossing, turning and sleep walking.

I just made it to the Inn’s breakfast –

I enjoyed a lovely bowl of Raisin Bran topped off with a little granola and lots of fresh berries.

Plus a coffee (splash caf, mostly decaf) and some OJ, for the nutrients Winking smile

We all have things to work on this weekend – Larbs has report writing, mom has book writing and I have blog writing : ) Dad, as always, has loads of reading. I’m hoping to get started on Ahab’s Wife too! With all due respect to Meredith and the Pimpernel, I’m switching to a more beachy read for now.

It feels pretty warm out there, so we’re headed out on a power walk as soon as this post goes up!

oh gosh, I wish I could sleep like that! I’m sure it was much needed for you though! And I love raisin bran, I used to use up my dad’s all the time when I went home to visit!

My mom showed me and my sister the Scarlet Pimpernel movie when we were little and it instantly became a favorite! I haven’t watched it as an adult yet (now on my to-do list) but I remember it being absolutely hilarious!

Looks like the perfect start to the weekend! I miss family vacations… my sisters and I are so spread out it’s hard to get together anymore.

That bird house is so cute! It’s gorgeous here as well and I wish I wasn’t sitting inside, but I know I’ll be out as much as possible this weekend! Have a lovely walk!

I so love your posts from Bald Head. I can just imagine that I am actually enjoying the scenery instead of only photos.

What’s your “more beachy read”? Always interested to hear what other people are reading.

Wow, a bowl of raisin bran has never looked so appealing!

My husband knows it, so he won’t be offended if I say that I always get the best sleep when I don’t sleep with him. Now, this only h appens if we go on trips without one another or if someone is out of town and the other is at home – buuut I get elbowed in the face far too often. :)

Looks like you all are having fun, relaxing but staying productive!
I love how they put a lot of fruits on top, some places just sprinkle a little bit on the top and call it fruits granola, it’s disappointing!

Sometimes sleeping in a different bed is just the trick for getting some proper sleep after a few nights of bad sleep in the usual one! Vacation relaxation never hurts either :).

Gorgeous pineapple and woo-hoo for NINE hours of sleep! Fabulous!

I’m so jealous of you right now, it’s not even funny.
Yay for sleep!!!

If the buttercream dream really is the key to a long night’s sleep, I think you’d have a lot of people happily giving up their Ambien ;)

I am sure you feel refreshed after a good night’s sleep.

That is a pretty birdhouse!

Love your blog! Been silently stalking for about a year now…. Just have to say: don’t give up on the Scarlet Pimpernel! It’s a slow start but it’s completely worth it!

Thanks for your comment! I def. want to try it again – if it’s anyones favorite book it’s bound to get good!
