I have arrived!
I left the mountains of Alaska:
for the prairies of the Midwest:
I left mid-morning on Friday, so I had time to make breakfast before I left.
I wanted to have one last bowl of oatmeal before I left because I figured I wouldn’t be able to make them at home.
However, I am definitely getting tired of oatmeal. I think I need to do something to change it up!
When I get back from my trip, I think I’m going to make steel cut oatmeal instead and try some new toppings!
While at the airport, I had a tall decaf coffee frappuccino from Starbucks before boarding my flight.
It was a 5+ hour flight from Anchorage to Minneapolis, so it gets to be pretty long. I did have a whole row to myself, which was nice.
Luckily someone had left the Star Tribune newspaper, so I spent a good hour reading that. I also had brought Running on Empty with me and the movie Marley & Me. I attempted to sleep, but I am never able to fall asleep on airplanes.
When I arrived in Minneapolis, I was greeted with temps in the low-70s and partly sunny skies. (It was 60* and sunny when I left Anchorage.)
A sunset on the drive home was a welcomed sight–and something I haven’t seen in a while!
We also saw this huge flock of geese. (This was only about half of them.)
And the Morristown Dam. (That one’s for you, Honey. ;))
I love how being at home makes me feel so at ease and like I truly fit it.
Home also means being in the country. I grew up on a family farm and love the serenity the country life provides. I don’t know if I’ll every fully embody the city life.
Are you more of a city person or country person?
Where do you feel the most “at-home?”
