Often I’ve wanted to travel to London but being an American and not really knowing anything about the area or the country for that matter, my concern was finding suitable London Apartments at a price I could afford. In truth, I would need to contact someone who knew the area well and I would prefer someone who actually lived there.
When I travel, I like to know about places of interest and also the good restaurants to eat at and in general all the information I can possibly get, before I go off into a foreign land, so to speak. I hate getting lost and even though I love to wander the market places in different countries as I do in the US, it would be difficult if I didn’t have a guide or at least someone who could inform me about various attractions.
Finding suitable lodging has been made easier by the Robert and Polly Arnold family. They are Londoners and along with their children have lived there all of their lives. They have 22 years of experience in London Apartments! Contacting them is a must on my list when I decide to plan my trip abroad. This is the kind of service that would save so much hassle, money and aggravation, that I could enjoy my visit without worry.

My daughter and I have decided to pack up the truck and the cooler and go for a weekend road cruise. I’m looking forward to just getting the heck out of Dodge, so to speak. I love spending time with my daughters, but my oldest can’t get away, so this will be my youngest and I going.
She and I both love venturing into antique shops and finding treasures, stopping at road side produce stands and also lets not forget garage sales, barn sales and flea markets. There are lots we can hit on the roads I have somewhat mapped out.
Mind you, we don’t really have any destination in mind and we’ve even packed sleeping bags, pillows and a wee grill, in case we find a camping place that strikes our fancy. I’m really looking forward to this and am so glad I have a daughter that loves the same things I do! This will be a holiday of sorts for us!

For some reason, yesterday I kept thinking it was Tuesday and even showed up for an appointment that I had in town only to be told it was not the right day. I did make it to my appointment this morning, but it seems like my days are all messed up.
Ever since the kids got out of school for the summer, my times and days have been odd. It seems like having the kids around the house all day, every day, has done this. They all are taking a break before they either go back to school in the fall or get a job, so despite the fact that I love them dearly, it would be nice to have some alone time.
I’m seriously thinking about taking a week and just go. When I say just go, it means I get in the car, point it in any direction I feel l like going, and then see where it takes me. This probably won’t make my days straighten out, but it’d be fun to see where I end up!

Being a firm and hopeless romantic, I believe that two people’s wedding should be an exceptional day that builds lasting memories. What better way to do this is to have an Estate Wedding? It is a thought that I have kicked around for my youngest daughter and her boyfriend. I could say he is her fiance, but we aren’t actually sure where this relationship is going in the long run, yet it is something to give them what would be exceptional and the memories would last forever. I personally think that after all this time has past, that they are indeed going to get married, and I’d like to start planning for it. Travel and destination is going to be first on my list!
I’ve been checking on luxury retreats for the honeymoon. I know usually the groom is supposed to plan all of this, but my daughter’s boyfriend is into showing her that he is working hard, which he does, and that he doesn’t want this wedding to be a financial burden on his parents, or our family. I’d say that he has his stuff together and that he definitely loves my daughter. I’m relived.
I’ve been putting some money aside for this wedding and also the to help with the honeymoon. Both of them deserve it and also deserve to spend it together. I’ve found also that it it isn’t as pricey as I thought it would be. No more actually, than her father and I would give in monetary gifts. So, lots of plans need to be made, since I have a feeling at the end of the month, when he comes to visit, he’s going to “pop the question.” It’s rather bitter sweet emotions that are on my mind, but then on the flip side my daughter choose a good man.

Planning even a small vacation around here is darn near impossible, but I’m going to try and go with my sister to visit the Amish market in Pennsylvania in two weeks. We are only going to spend the weekend there and yet it will be so good to get away and also spend time with my sister. We don’t get to do this much anymore.
I love going to the markets that sell Amish quilts and baked goods, along with the crafts they make. It makes me think about the simple yet also hard life, these awesome people live, and I have great respect for them. I’m really looking forward to this mini vacation, shopping trip. I love the canned goods and other items that can be bought. With every bite of the food, or the warmth and beauty of the quilts and sewn goods, it makes me realize that all of the material things we now have, are a blessing in a way, but also have spoiled us.
