I recently took a short vacation. The reason was pretty simple. It’s cold outside and my husband wanted to be somewhere warm. Ergo…we spent our Christmas money on a 5 day trip to…
- Hawaii. Pineapples, girls in grass skirts, ripped boys in little board shorts. What’s not to love?
- Aspen. It’s cold outside, but we wanted to be really cold while skiing, then really warm in a hot tub.
- Cancun. Things are cheaper in Mexico, right? Well, maybe not in Cancun, but we thought they were cheaper there.
- Florida. Just how much money do you think we got for Christmas? Not enough for a long, expensive trip. *sigh*
Answer: 4 – We went to Key Largo and Ft. Lauderdale. Sadly, it was rainy or overcast for most of the trip, but I still managed some sun. I also listened to two books on audio. My favorite? The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook. Best steampunk I’ve ever read/heard. It may be the only steampunk book I’ve ever read, but it’s still fabulous. She deserves her reputation as an awesome writer!
So, here’s a picture of the view out my hotel window. Really pretty. And, of course, the worst part is that I had to come home. *sigh* But I’m back now in my recliner writing again with my kitty nearby.
Life is good. Even if it’s cold!
If you’re looking for a book to keep you laughing despite the cold, take a look at SEDUCING THE SKEPTIC. You’ll laugh until your sides hurt as you root for their happily ever after!
