On The Road Again

We are truly blessed to live in a most beautiful area of the
country, and we mostly love being home here at the cabin.
Our getaways consist of short restful trips
to some wonderful neighboring states,
PA ~ NY ~ MA ~ VT ~ & NH.
I'm just not crazy about staying in hotels or motels.
So we decided to purchase a travel trailer and we love it.
When we hit the road now we travel with all our own stuff,
and it works great for us. I bring all of hubby's favorite
foods and beverages and I have all the comforts of home.

This is our third year "camping" and we are loving it,
we are planning trip number two as we speak.


We laugh and say we really have the best camp site right
here at home. Beautiful scenery, quiet, and private
(the campgrounds tend to herd you in)
but because hubby is in his own business the only way
for him to relax, make him sit still, and chill out
is to get him away from home.
When we are away its just the two of us....talking,
laughing, eating, drinking, playing cards, sitting in front
of a roaring campfire, enjoying each others company.
No chores calling to be done, no phone calls about work,
just peace and tranquility.
The granddaughters also love it for play dates, & sleepovers
in the its a big hit all the way around.
One of the best things we have done for ourselves.
The season here in the North East is short....April ~ Oct.
so we try and get at least one trip a month in...sometimes
obligations at home make that impossible, but we do try.
I have my fingers, eyes, and toes crossed for the
third year...I would love to take a trip to Ohio
this November for the Simple Goods Show.
Hubby thinks that's a little too far for
a shopping trip, lol... so we will see.
(A few trees we brought back from my niece Debbie's
property in VT) They traveled home safely in the shower.
They are now planted in our back yard.

I hope When Ever & Where Ever you can, you get some
fun quality time with those you Love .

Friends & Flowers

May is such a pretty month....everything is turning lush green....the flowers are blooming, and the air smells of fresh mowed grass. We are all excited about being
back outside, planting our herbs ~ flowers, and veggies.
We washed off the front porch, and placed out our rockers so when we
have time, we can sit a spell and count our many Blessings.

Down by the "store" there is a daily show, one beam holds a dove nesting .... the other beam shows mama sparrow feeding three babies, and smack in the middle is a robins nest. Amazing the complete harmony that goes on right outside my door. They have now come to realize that I mean them no harm,so they pay absolutely no attention to me, till I pull out the camera and try to get a shot of the goings on.

My favorite flower the beautiful fragrant Lilac
is in full bloom here at the cabin, and was also
a beautiful sight down in Hereford, PA this past weekend.
Always a TreaT to shop at my favorite stores,
and visit with my favorite Friends !!
Came home as I always do, with wonderful goodies
and inspiration galore.
Hope there are people, and places that inspire and
fill you with Joy.
Sending Warm Spring Hugs from the Cabin

Happy Mother's Day ~~

~~ Wonderful Mother ~~
God made a wonderful mother, A mother who never grows old;
He made her smile of the sunshine, And He moulded her heart
of pure gold; In her eyes He placed bright shining stars,
In her cheeks fair roses you see;
God made a wonderful mother,
And He gave that dear mother to me. ~~

Its raining here in Connecticut and we are suppose
to get rain for the next few days, so hubby and I are packing up the
camper and heading out. Our first trip for 2009 will be
to PA, unfortunately they will be getting the same rain we are,
but there is much to see and lots of great stores and shops to visit.
We will be back home on Celebrate
with the kids and grandkids, so for me this well be a great week-end.
I'm stopping in early to extend my Best Wishes

Wishing all the Beautiful Women I know,
my Sister, Nieces, Cousins, Daughter-in-law &
all my Best Girlfriends, along with all my
on-line Blogger Friends a
Wonderful Happy Mothers Day !!!
You are all so Special & Talented always doing
for others, and making life better for everyone you know.
~~ May God Bless You All ~~
