We are back in the city. As I promised some time ago, I will no longer use the "Back in the City" post title, which is why I called this post what I did.
We both return to work in the morning. We both would rather be at the cottage. Save for the trespassers who feel entitled to cut across the property to get to and from the beach, the place is like Heaven to us.
Trespassing bothers us that much. It is rude. It is inconsiderate. It is illegal. And the cops don't give enough of a shit about it to do anything. Which makes us even angrier. If you don't understand where we're coming from, then I don't know what to say to you. You probably trespass and don't think it's a big deal. I feel sorry for you.
Anyway, we had a restful 2 weeks in Pictou County. We read some. We watched a bunch of movies and tv shows like "The Game of Thrones" on the dvd player we have down there. I got to meet Ann and Gene at East Coast FM. We had some great coffee at the Saint Cinnamon in New Glasgow. I attended the very first Summer Fear con in Tatamagouche. We had some good food. Our American friends finally returned to their nearby cottage. And we slept a whole lot, victims of the notorious "sleeping sickness" that infects us both when we're down there.
Tomorrow I return to my work, and wonder what wonders await me. Is my promised privacy panel in place? Did they fix the overhead storage thingy so that I can actually open the sucker?
5:30 comes very early when you have been sleeping in until 9 or 10 most mornings for the last 2 weeks. Mighty early. It's now 9:38, so perhaps I should calm down from an entertaining vacation and toddle off to bed.
See you tomorrow.
