Fair Trade?



                             The encumbering winter boots will soon be flip flops...

                              The comfort of my sweater will be traded for the sun.

                             I'll leave this sheath of snow, for an endless scope of sand

                             I'll walk the waters edge with my sweetheart hand in hand...

                              The suns rays will immerse me, the sand will soothe me

                              I'll  leave my daily cares in search of pure respite.

                             And when of this calm oasis I've had enough

                                  I will return back  home to the life  I love....

hubby and I are leaving on a wee vacation....(along with some of his family...)

                     our children will have the opportunity to exercise their independence and responsibility, as they are staying home ...
                                   I have my apprehensions   suitcase packed and I am getting excited:)

                 God speed... I will see you soon~ Lucy.
