so i shall take the time to recharge my batteries~read, garden, relax, knit (i am thinking of opening an etsy shop)~enjoy watching my veggies grow.
already i am thinking of what to read next, i finished the six 'tales of the city' books this morning and now need something else~ i recently finished another re-read of 'stonewylde', i have to finish my multiple re-read of the last book and a half of 'boudica' and i do have garrison keillor's 'lake wobegon days' to finish~i am never happy with just one book on the go and i have an urge to re-read edna ferber's 'giant'...the list is endless~i can see the pile of books next to my bed will be towering this summer!
we are off camping again tomorrow~swamping has a couple of meetings so it is an excuse for camping and we are meeting our good friend sean in malvern.
my sister and i have been busy making plans for our yearly 'sisters only' trip~this year to wimbledon in july for the men's singles semi-finals~the hotel where we are staying for two nights looks wonderful with a great Singaporean, Malaysian and Chinese restaurant~so i have been saving my pennies to allow us to eat there for the two nights if we want to.
next year our trip takes us on a 5 night mini cruise for next october from spain to the canaries and maderia and back on a monster of a boat/ship/whatever called the navigator of the sea's.
i have done an awful lot of travel in my life~america, canada, the far east and europe but this will be my first time on a cruise so it really is something to look forward to and of course add a new destination to my list!
