Friday am we were on the road by 6am for a 2 1/2 hour drive for Breakfast! Not just any old breakfast... this is a right of passage into Spring! 'The Maple Tree Inn' is only open for a couple of months in the Spring while the sap is running. My parents started going there before I was born (and still do). Just tradition. Then a drive through Letchworth Park on the way home...J thought that I was crazy the first time I dragged him 2.5 hours away for breakfast, but now I think that he enjoys it almost as much as I do!

If you are anything like me, you wait until your battery light is 'flashing' (camera), you're down to 'one bar' on (on your phone), one more 'straw' will make you snap (real-life) before you take the time to RECHARGE...
'Three Clip Find' @ Thurs night Rummage - Dress Clip $1, Glove Clip $1 and Sweater Clip 2011 #4 .25¢
When I got home from the rare, 'Thursday Night Opening' Rummage Sale, and 'J' suggested that since he had some vacay time to 'use-or-lose', that we should go AWOL for a few days - who was I to argue? It has been a L*O*N*G Winter, and this girl's soul could use a little recharging!!
Of course it is always a challenge as to which route we will be able to take to get there, as the shortest route consists of mostly 'Seasonal use only' dirt roads - luckily this year, those were all open & passable!! However, you have to stay alert for what may be in your path - even on the paved roads!! Aside from the NUMEROUS deer we had to avert, we also had to stop for a HORSE standing in the middle of the road, and we were glad this 'little' guy decided to stay on the shoulder of the road!
The journey is the BEST PART!!
The route home always involves LOTS of stops 8-) !!!
...and that is just ONE day of recharging!!! I will share more another day, but now I MUST go unpack. Just a couple of more pictures to show you what was awaiting me in the mail upon return!
These two scarves just absolutely make me !SMILE! They are the epitome of VERA design! Nature! Slightly abstract! Retro Colors! This is what attracted me to VERA originally! I had better be careful though, or I am afraid that a certain person on the West Coast who has a spectacular eye for spotting VERA may be starting to get the 'bug' (or should I say LadyBug??) THANKS LeAnne!!!!!
