August 10 on 10: Post Summer Vacation Let Down

This year, my post vacation blues hit me a little bit harder than usual and for the past couple of weeks, I have been feeling and acting grouchy. I know that I should not be that way because I am lucky that I even CAN take vacations. These feelings come down to wanting be somewhere that I am not--mostly physically because as nice as it is to live in the Midwest, I cannot say it has ever felt like my home. But, you know, time to snap out of it; get over it and accept; no more pity parties. I mean who wouldn't want to live their lives in their vacation spots; it's kinda why they are vacation spots, right? :)

For this month's 10 on 10 blog post, I have more pictures from the Adirondacks that I recently got around to editing. These are just random shots--no particular theme.

And then I have a just few from our other trip (another regular trip that we take) out to the lake houses that Dave's family owns on Lake Pend Oreille (pronounced Ponderay) in Idaho. I don't ever take a lot of pictures there because that trip always has more to do with visiting family and also working on the properties (nearly all of the building and maintenance of those properties is done by the family--including even the kids; it's a great experience and really quite fun even if it is labor intensive!) Here are a few photos of the lake and mountains. It is very different from the Adirondacks--the air is dry and the light is very clear and white (not something I am used to at all).

And here is one from back home, from the other day; I need to find my fun in focusing on the little things now that I am back home.
