Long Weekend

It's my husband's birthday on Friday, hot on the heels of Spring Equinox. We shall celebrate with a long weekend away, a change of scene. Nothing exotic mind you, unless Texas counts as exotic!

Apt words of Bill Bryson - one of my favourite authors:

I mused for a few moments on the question of which was worse, to lead a life so boring that you are easily enchanted, or a life so full of stimulus that you are easily bored.
~ Lost Continent: Travels In Small-Town America

I am quite easily enchanted, as it happens, and I'm with Bill Bryson when he says:

I love everything about motels. I can't help myself. I still get excited every time I slip a key into a motel room door and fling it open.
~ I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away.

Back next week.
