I am havin me an enjoyable day here mates, scrapein them barnacles off the decks in my kitchen, bath and anywhere else the rest of the crew that lives here leaves their scummy messes. I'm not to up on pirate talk but you get t he drift.
Of course that would only be myself and sweet man since we are the only two around, with narry an visitor in the last few days. Anyway I have spent the better half cleaning this house in preparation of a much needed R & R away. You know how it is with us women we have to have the house ALL clean and sparkly just before we go away so's we don't have to clean when we get home because vacations can sometimes be exhausting.... ahem Yes well with that said I am sure there are other women who do this isn't there?? or am I just a bit OCD??
We will be traveling to some of our favorite places far far away, we have always had some sort of plan in place but we are very spontaneous so leave room for changes. That makes it so much more fun and interesting, some of the neatest places we just happened to stumble on and they left lasting impressions.
One year we traveled old route 66 as much as we could, it got a little rough in some places being reduced to a dirt road in spots, another year we checked out covered bridges and another visited as many ghost towns as we could. There are so many places of beauty God has created for us to enjoy that we could never see them all in a life time.. We do tend to shy away from the typical tourist trap and busy cities.. I am trying to get away from the rat race not into it. We so enjoy just the natural wonders, of meadows, mountains, water falls, throw in some history and people, and no structure of what to do next. That's the best!!!
Next I will have to start thinking of packing, yikes that is the worst, you never know what you might need, if I could take my whole closet of clothes, shoes, cosmetics etc it would be just fine but I do have narrow it down to just the essentials.. oh what to do what to do???? Men have it so easy don't they?? Throw in a few shorts, t-shirts, one or two pair of shoes, a couple of bathroom items and they are good to go. Why is that do you spose???
Anyway preparing for time away from the norm is part of the fun... Hope your Sat. is as satisfying as mine has been
