Now, there are some who would argue that swirling flakes of snow and gray skies would be counter to a great vacation, but they would be missing the point entirely.
With beautiful scenery, constantly changing, with deer grazing beside the cottage, with the fireplace blazing, and with an abundance of good food, lots of tea and sympathy, and the best company around, the ladies had a spectacular weekend.
Why, when we dropped over to say hello on Saturday, they were still in their pajamas, all cosy in the living room, more than happy to watch the snow swirl about outside! And feeling not the least bit guilty that they weren't "keeping busy" and "doing things".
Sometimes you just need to stop, and let your soul catch up.
