Fathers Day Retreat

Paul surprised me this weekend and said that I needed a retreat! So- he packed me up and drove me to California for the weekend. Thanks to my brother Philip, we now use Priceline for booking of hotels- so we got a room for $30.00 a night and it was a 4 star hotel.
So, we spent Saturday relaxing, and recuperating from my wicked cold. Paul did most of his homework on Saturday. Then Sunday we woke up (I felt quite refreshed) and we started our drive home. On the way home we saw a sign for a winery, Paul wanting to check it out made the detour. It was a quaint little place. Not a huge winery. We looked around and then left. They did not have any tours available on Sunday. Paul has grape vines in our back yard and in all honesty our grape vines looked better than the ones that we saw at this winery. However, it was a nice stop where we could stretch our legs and walk a bit before sitting for another few hours.
I feel like a completely different person this morning. I am rested, I can breathe clearly and I feel GREAT. I think sometimes the body just needs to stop and REST.

We got home from vacation on Saturday night, and I need a vacation to get over the vacation! We sure didn't find any $30/night rooms!
