A Badly Needed Vacation

It's been quite a year for us. Although we took a two week trip to the Dakotas in August, it was to see family and that really doesn't count as a vacation. Even if we took the RV and spent an extra day going and coming home, it still doesn't count in my book.
Hubby wanted to take 4 weeks. FOUR WEEKS??!!! OMG I talked him into 3. I just wasn't comfortable with four. We are two weeks and a day into it and I could see us doing 4 now (that's only because we are so close to the east coast that it would be nice to take a few days and go there) but once in awhile I get the antsies to get home. Seriously I am losing a month of my 'life'. I'm missing all my mums bloom, getting lettuce planted, dividing and replanting a bunch of my perennials that need it. And just life at home in general. Don't get me wrong. I love traveling and exploring this country so who knows, maybe we'll go farther next time. Upstate NY is calling us too. At least fall will be waiting for us when we return home. It never shows up till nearly Thanksgiving. And speaking of fall.....

Where is your color Ohio? It's been too warm and dry they say.

You had to look real hard to find some. By our last day I found a tree whose helicopters had turned red and a few leaves were beginning to.

We spent a glorious week in the middle of Amish country of Ohio. We stayed in Coshocton which is a very cool place. The historic Village of Roscoe was visited quite a bit. (great food) We took a ride down part of the Ohio-Erie canal by two horses pulling our canal boat. They had remnants of Lock 27 for our viewing pleasure and another, I think 26. So, so cool. We love history and it turned out to be the best place to stay in the area. Made us have to drive through the winding country roads to get to the heart of the Amish. A lot of barns! Lots of buggies!

I pasted this couple in. How did I do on the shadow? Believable? I used Leonardo and DistressedFx.

To be continued.......


  1. Four weeks! How could you say no? Although I would be ready to go home too...maybe :) I will never get Glen to take four weeks, and I envy your three. Enjoy them!

  2. For me the problem would be spending that long in an RV WITH someone. It doesn't matter how much I love them, that's just more togetherness than I could handle. :-) But your trip does sound fabulous, and the photos are wonderful.


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
