A Short Vacation

Lila and Sunset

For the last year or so, my husband and I have been planning to get away from home for a few days. Our original intention was to take Lila with us but when our daughter offered her services as a caretaker, we decided to take her up on it.

We went to a gorgeous, isolated, elegant lodge one hour away from home but we might as well have been on another planet. It was just spectacular. Our out-of-shape current physical condition kept us from doing more than short walks to see hummingbirds but it was a very needed and welcome wake-up call.

The personnel at the lodge was so nurturing it was hard to say goodbye. When we returned home, however, Lila greeted us as if we had been gone for ages and the spectacular sunset also made us feel wanted and welcomed back.

We will begin saving our pennies and starting healthy food planning in preparation for more and longer hikes.
