I'm back from our 1500 mile buying trip and a little R&R. It was good to get away. Aside from having to shop every day, the worst thing that happened to me was when I blindly grabbed the wrong bottle as I got into the shower in a hotel and washed my hair with hand lotion. How are you supposed to be able to read those little bottle labels when you don't have on your glasses? Anyway, I remember when I used to love to shop. Now that I have to do it for a living, I hate it.
It wasn't all torturous though. We had our martinis every afternoon in the prettiest places. I just love my little martini travel case and I wouldn't be on the road without it.
Here's a view from the back porch of a darling cottage we rented in Virginia for a couple of days. When we weren't lolling about in front of the fireplace or relaxing in our Jacuzzi, we were sitting on this pretty porch getting all liquored up.
Sometimes, the simple things are the best things.
