With the promise of our first true spring days we decided to take a 4 day weekend and make the 6 hour drive to visit with family and friends in Pennsylvania. So we made arrangements at our favorite Residence Inn, packed an bag (and of course some hand quilting for myself), some of our favorite foods (the farm country of PA is not known for gluten-free or low-fat foods), and put the dogs in the back of the car, then headed out at about 8am Friday morning. We were blessed with a sunny virtually traffic free drive on the way down, a hotel that loves to have four legged guests and a wonderful visit.
The drive home was just as beautiful and it was so nice to see the trees in PA, New York and Connecticut starting to burst … can not say the same thing about the trees in Vermont/ northern New Hampshire at this point, but we did return home to much less snow on the ground. As an added bonus I was able to complete about 30 squares for a quilt that I am working on.
Have a wonderful week.
