Step Away from the Box...

September 18, 2016

I’m not good at craft projects. At all. Today I saw an article from Good Housekeeping that showcased dozens of “easy” projects that had gone so, so wrong.

I’ve always wanted enough money to be able to hop on a plane and go somewhere at a moment’s notice; so if somebody calls and says, “The leaves in the Berkshires are at their peak,” or “The cherry blossoms in DC are wonderful,” I could go see them right then, instead of planning a trip that might get me there at the wrong time, because the leaves didn’t turn or the cherries didn’t bloom when they were supposed to.

Well, I’m told that Pere Marquette Park, which is about an hour from here, has lovely leaves in the Fall. And it’s way cheaper than flying to the Berkshires, and quicker than driving to Door County, Wisconsin.

Ask and ye shall receive…something, even if it’s not your own private jet.
