Gone and Back Again


Just back from a short vacation to San Antonio, Texas. I truly meant to write about it while I was down there and took along the laptop for that very purpose. But alas, the internet connection at the hotel was the pits and so nothing got done. At first I was frustrated by that outcome, but decided that the Universe simply wanted me to have time away from electronics and so it was.

I had a wonderful time, lots of good food, great company, long strolls along the Riverwalk, fantastic spa experiences, and just general relaxation. I am super grateful for my wonderful kind loving daughter, Tracy, who took me along on a business trip. Every once in a while I get the opportunity to accompany her and always jump at the chance.

I had not been in San Antonio since the late 1980's so it had been a while. I will certainly try to get back down there and do some of the things I missed this time around.

I didn't stop my yahoo group mail since I thought I'd have a connection, so have been wading through tons of email today, but am nearly caught up now.

The weather was incredible down south.. temps mid 80's and I am pleased that it is warm here at home now too! I can feel spring in the air now which is very exciting, have planted lettuce, spinach, onions and potatoes and the crocus are blooming.. Bring it on.. I am so ready!
