Weekend getaway

Saturday  I went to a family gathering for Thanksgiving.  We had a great time and it was nice to visit with everyone who showed up.  While I was sitting there I felt the need to go spend a few nights with Mr. C at Elk City, Okla.  I came home about 2pm and threw clothes in a suitcase and off I went.  It is a 2 1/2 hour drive for me and I enjoy being alone.  I use that time to reflect on my life or have a loud concert of one in my car.  Am glad my windows are tinted dark or other travelers would see me  singing at the top of my lungs on occasion.  I get to Elk City about 6 pm.  Usually  I take something to work on for swaps and of course I had my journal I am working on for the month of November. I am caught up on the daily entries but have been adding lots of recipes and such to make it more "me".
I finally came home Monday afternoon..  Although I made a side trip to Oklahoma City before coming home.  I went to Kohls and Target and did some Christmas shopping. 
The several days away was awesome and  I do feel much more rested at this point!

Am glad to be back home.


  1. It's nice to have some quiet time to think and reflect. I wished I had a car still. Not possible to have a car and be one with your thoughts in NYC. Enjoy your Thanksgiving week.

  2. It sounds like you had the perfect little trip away from things. I think it is always great when you can get some time away to reflect.


  3. Hello it's Anna again (mynursecoach) from swap-bot. It looks like we are partners again.

  4. We don't celebrate thanksgiving here in Ireland but it was so funny -my son follows the nfl and he bought some cold sliced turkey in the supermarket while he and his friends watched some match-boy did I feel guilty I might have cooked some chicken if i had known he was that dedicated!!

  5. I love those kind of trips when you can veg out and sing. No trips for me lately. Working on art during your trip is so great. I love Hope Karney's site, she does the same thing and shows her journal. Love her work.
