I got home last night from another trip. This one was just as long as the one hubby and I took in August. We flew into Chicago, drove to Kalamazoo, Toronto, New York, Pennsylvania, and finally Indiana, visiting my mother, hubby’s cousin, and our daughter.
Now I need to write “The Definitive Guide to Gluten Free Travel REDUX.” Or at least Part 2. And pick up my writing-writing. On top of that, I plan to prepare for a poetry reading I’m giving in Redlands, California, on November 8.
But for now I need to unpack and catch up on work. Just glad to be HOME.
Saw this cool cardboard dollhouse in an antique mall.

Lots of miles! Love that dollhouse; never saw one like that. Glad you are home again. 💖💖
Sammy, I had the strangest feeling about that dollhouse. It looked really familiar to me. But where? I’m glad I’m home too, by the way!! xoxo
That is always an uncanny feeling! Perhaps your mind has created an amalgam of other dollhouses? Honestly I don’t remember any cardboard ones from our chikdhood but I certainly will be on the lookout when I wander antique stores!
I don’t feel like it’s an amalgam, but then if it is I wouldn’t know it, would I? Now I can’t remember if I saw this in Pennsylvania or Ohio . . . .
You covered a lot of ground, Luanne. That makes coming home extra special.
It sure does. So good to be home!!! Happy week to you, Jill!
I hope you had a good trip–even with the gluten hazards. I’m sure it’s great to be home.
That doll house is very cool.
Have you ever seen a dollhouse like that? It seems so familiar to me for some reason. It was so good to see all the relatives! but very exhausting to do all that driving and food hunting ;)!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dollhouse like that, but it does remind me of . . .something.
Hah! I wonder what!
Welcome home, and thanks for the charming dollhouse photo. Write on!
Thanks, Elaine! I can’t wait to get back in my “writing chair” again!
Thanks so much, Jean! I’m glad to be back!
Whirlwind tour, Luanne! Welcome back. Time to take a breath now 😀
Speaking of tour, Dianne, it was a color tour. The trees were beautiful, at least!!
Welcome back, Luanne! If you’re like me, it may be a while before you get back into the swing of things. Our two-week road trip took a lot out of me. It’s been a week since we came home, but I still haven’t picked up my blogging much less my writing-writing (I don’t count reblogs as blogging). I’m so far behind on reading blogs (including yours) that I might just have to say, “Never mind!” and start anew. And you probably should publish a book on being gluten-free on the road! I don’t have gluten intolerance, but I learned a lot from your post on your last trip.
I just read your post about being back home! Yes, our road trip took a lot out of me, too. I’m EXHAUSTED. Tomorrow I’ll post about the gluten free travel problems haha.
I am so behind on blogging and reading. I hope I can get back in the groove this weekend 😉
Welcome home! Catch your breath and unwind before your jump into work. It’s allowed.
I wrote a comment on the Crack the Spine interview. I was rather surprised, disappointed to see few evidences of your large number of followers. Just wanted to say something in hopes to create some flow over to there, Luanne. I do admire your skills in writing, interpersonal relationships and communication, too. Hugs, Robin xo
I just went and read it. Robin, what a beautiful comment. Thank you so much!!! I’m so touched! xo
Luanne sounds like you had a wonderful trip, welcome back and I adore that old doll house.
Thanks, Kath! Me too. And it’s driving me crazy where I’ve seen it before.
