Ready to Jump into Fall

I’m back from vacation and I feel refreshed and ready to face the rest of the year. Hubby and I had a great time in Ashland, Oregon. The weather was perfect. We saw a couple of plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, had long walks in Lithia Park and ate some fabulous meals. Of course I got some serious knitting time in too.


I love my home and my job so I rarely feel the need to get away from my everyday life.  On the other hand I do enjoy visiting other places and doing different things. However it took some effort to convince me that this was the right time to take a break. I was feeling pressed for time. Darling Daughter’s wedding is two months away. I’m trying to get my Etsy store stocked and ready for the holidays. And, silly me, I planned a garage sale for next weekend. How could I take time off?

But the tickets were already purchased and the hotel was booked so off we went. It took a little time for me to get into the vacation frame of mind. A large bag of knitting projects certainly helped. 

I enjoyed every moment of it. Even the moments when I did absolutely nothing. Hubby was right. When you start to feel that you don't have a spare minute, that might be the best time to take a break.
