Are you planning a vacation this year? I was kind of hoping we’d visit family and friends this year, but with Greg’s knee surgery on the horizon, I don’t know if it’ll happen. I’d rather get him well than force him to hobble from place to place.
We do plan a couple of mini retreats to some conferences we’d like to attend. One will be for Mother Earth News, the other is still up in the air since it will be around the time Greg might have surgery.
I’m babysitting Ozzy, my friend’s little schnauzer next week while she goes gallivanting around London. Da bum! (I can call her that. I love her to bits!)
She always goes on amazing trips. Australia, China, Japan, France, England. I must live vicariously through her as she regales me about the things she’s seen and done.
She’s going to miss Highclere Castle (Downton Abby) though. Wrong time of year. It’s on my bucket list. That and to visit my good friend, author Mike Keyton and his family.
Although we probably won’t visit my family this year, there’s a good chance several of them will visit me. One sister is moving to Arizona, so the high desert might be calling us in the next couple of years too.
I like weekend getaways. I’ve done enough staycations to last a lifetime, so I’m anxious to get out and see something other than goats and chickens. They always appreciate me more when I come back.
Are you going anywhere in 2017? Is there any one place on your bucket list that you’d like to visit?
Mountains? Beach? City or Country? I’m a cross between museum hound and rock climber, so I teeter between mountains and big cities. I’d like to go back to Italy some day, but Greg doesn’t have much interest in his ancestral homeland.
