Are you there, Bloggers? It's me, SJ.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed my vacation as much as me. True, it wasn't the lovely Los Cabos that I had longed to escape too.

It was in fact New Paltz, New York.

It was a lovely mountaintop retreat in New York where j and I were the only guests under 60.

But still very pretty. See?


I know, right? So pretty. It had everything - a spa, a five star chef, canoes, lots of hiking, yoga and meditation classes, an art tour -- truly a diverse outlay of entertainment options.

But you know what this place didn't have?


Television and a decent internet connection. But, boy did I do some reading.

Someday, maybe I'll take a vacation where I can wear my ever growing collection of awesome sundresses and bathing suits. *Sigh. Someday.

OOOh! Whatcha reading?! It kinda looks like a library book I have sitting on my dresser just waiting to be read. Is it any good?

Glad that you had a good vacation!

Reading and all of that other stuff you mentioned sounds like my ideal vacation. Either than or spending every waking minute with my wonderful nephew... although I readily admit the reading one would definitely be more relaxing.

This was my favorite post title ever.


Also, you had me at "five star chef".

My best friend is going to the Outer Banks for 2 weeks next week. I'm so jealous, because, like you, I'm longing for the sunshine :-)

geiger - glass books of the dream doctors. it's a little bit steam punk science fiction and a little bit mystery.

soda - am so touched. and yes - the food was the bomb diggity.

They just featured New Paltz in Time Out NY as a cool getaway that's close to NYC. I've never been there.
