Weekend Getaway

It was a busy week at work. I was looking forward to our little weekend getaway.

Some people go away for a couple of months to a warmer country. Us, we go for a couple of nights in Grande Prairie. It's all a matter of perspective and how you live it. Well, to be honest, it's a more a matter of funds to draw from but what the heck, I'm living this little holiday with a heart full of gratitude.

Had a safe drive here through the freezing rain that has now turned into a nasty snow storm with blowing winds. I can see the beauty in it when looking at it through the window from the comfort of the Best Western Inn.

You can star fish on that king size bed as Brenda would say.
Went to Kal Tire to get my tires rotated. Picked up some office supplies at Stapples. Went out for a Japanese supper. Took in the academy award winning movie, The Revenant, (I would definitely not watch that one again), followed by a swim in the pool and a soak in the hot tub.

No files to make notes in, no receipts to get ready or business emails to answer to. Only writing in my journal, doing my meditation, writing on my blog, listening to music, reading. I don't have a hard time with any of that. None at all.

I turned that desk into my little writing studio
Tomorrow will prove to be another interesting day. I got some tickets to go to .....
more on that tomorrow.


  1. A weekend re"treat" sounds lovely! It sounds like you've been pretty busy anyway, and not just during the week.

    1. Ha ha, I like that re"treat"

      Yes, I suppose I don't sit still for very long. Always sitting at my job so when not working I have to move. Doesn't do much for my writing life though.
