There is nothing better in the world to me than a weekend getaway.
A total break from everyday demands and responsibilities.
When we do get away, this is one of our favorite places to go.
This is my parents cabin in Meadows of Dan, Virginia.
Their own little slice of heaven on earth.
S I M P L I C I T Y at it's finest.
No running water ...
No phone ...
Just good ol' fashioned roughin' it.
Our first order of business...
a place to lay our heads.
Hence... tent setup.
This only took us two tries,
with minimal disagreements on how to get it up correctly...
Papa and I were very proud of ourselves.
See all those poles, this is where you can run into problems...
Which one goes where, is this it? Ummm I don't think that's right.
OK, time to break out the instructions.
With that all done it was time to move in the gear.
Then it's time to relax with a good book,
and a big ol' basket of knitting.
Maybe even write a little note with a good ol' fashioned charcoal stick.
With lots of wood in the wood shed,
we are assured a great weekend to while away
in any way we see fit.
Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend,
and a huge THANK YOU
to all those who serve and have served our country so well.
* peace & love *
