Someone is gone for 4 days.  Someone went with his son up north to the fish house.  Out in the middle of a big lake.  To live on the ice for 4 days.  Round the clock, live on the ice, for 4 days.  And that someone is not me!  Not in a minute would I live on the ice for 4 days.  How would I shower?  Plug in my phone?  Computer?  Nook?  Nope, I don't think so.

But, that leaves me with a little mini vacation right at home!  No cooking unless I want to cook.  TV if I want, otherwise it's off.  Jammies until noon if I want.  Go to town if I want.  Whoo hoo!

So, yesterday I sewed, I read, and I made a pizza out of one of my freezer stash of gluten free crusts that I make six at a time. And  I did something I have never done before!  I watched American Idol because a local girl was in the top 40 or whatever the cut off was.  However she didn't make the top 24 that will continue on.  And I went to bed without my ear plugs in because someone wasn't snoring!

Now today I am heading into town to buy some scrubby net, I think it's called, to make some veggie bags to take with me to the co-op to put my veggie purchases in.  I have used cloth shopping bags for years, but every single time I shop, I end up with a dozen plastic bags with fruit and veggies in.  No need for those.....I'll make a bunch of net ones.  Save the world from a bunch of plastic bags each week.

And then it's lunch with my daughter at a gluten free friendly spot, Chipotle.  When I get home I will sit at the machine for awhile, then head into town again to pick up my sister to have her out for another pizza! 

What a life!

Sounds like a good time to me! Enjoy the pizza and the "me" time!

I certainly am enjoying looking at all your pictures from your vacation. Wow! Very nice!

But, for now, enjoy your Staycation. Sometimes they are the best ones of all!

Take care.

I love it when the hubby takes on of his "trips". Mine goes every August, and always the week of his birthday. Hey it saves me buying a present!
Enjoy your 4 days!
