Winnie and I decided we needed to do something different for Christmas this year. Our Christmases past have normally revolved around either staying at home in quiet celebration, or visiting family. This year, we gave each other a Christmas vacation trip to Puerto Rico.
Winnie and I returned home Saturday afternoon from our two week vacation. It turned out to be a great vacation, and we accomplished just about everything we planned on doing while still having a relaxing time.
We’ll be leaving this evening for our vacation trip to England and France. We’re as ready as we’re going to get, and that’s all there is!
We’ve been spending a lot of this past week prepping for our big vacation trip. I received my “Rough Guide” tour books as promised by Amazon.com and spent some time reading through them.
Winnie and I are starting to get ready for our next big adventure. This year, we decided to take a real vacation and head out to places we both have always dreamed about seeing. Actually, there’s a lot of places we’ve dreamed about seeing someday, so narrowing it down was a bit difficult. After some thought and planning we decided that this year we’d head off to see England, with a side trip to France.
After nearly three years and many adventures in the New World, Winnie left today to go visit her family. One catch with marrying a person who lived halfway around the planet; going to visit family takes a lot of planning.
If “April showers bring May flowers,” then we’re in for a bumper load of flowers next month. Meanwhile, I just wish the tree over our driveway would hurry up and dump its seeds and be done with it. It’s a wonderful feeling to be standing in the driveway pelted with hundred of tiny seeds every time the wind picks up. Really.
I’ve been off all week, between jobs, and had the rare pleasure of not having to do anything on anyone else schedule.
It’s been nice.
