Leaving Town

I'm off in the morning to pay a visit to my dear cousin Sal out East. She has outlined a plan of thrift store hits, bookstore stops, and dining that would take down a better man than me--and she'll be doing it with her baby in tow!

I noticed again today how getting ready for a trip involves so much *housekeeping*! There's extra shopping, laundry, pressing, planning meals, and cooking (if you're leaving meals in the freezer for the homebodies)! Now I actually *need* to go on vacation!!

Back on Monday, dear readers.

You're right about all the preparation. Sometimes it seems so much simpler to just stay at home. :)

But then we'd miss out on lovely excursions, new sights, and most of all, time with dear family and friends.

Have a wonderful time!

I do hope you have a wonderful time, but you will be missed. The Pleasant View Schoolhouse has become a regular part of my evening routine. It's perfect because teh posts are usually short, but sweet and serene with a dash of inspiration.

That sounds like my kind of trip!

I like the idea of decorating the package with thrift store goodies, too. You have lots of nice ideas for beautification. :-)

I hope you have a wonderful time with your cousin...I'll miss your daily snippets though!

I also completely understand what you mean about the preparation. I have just recently gone on school camp with my daughters, leaving my husband and son at home. Oh the preparation!!! My head was so full for a week, of all the things I needed to accomplish to be away from real life for 3 days!
