Where I got to go this past weekend...

Sights from the almost-four-day mini chick-vacation I got to take with my sista, Nina! Pics from Ouray (top) and the road to Yankee Boy Basin (though we didn't go all the way up due to the road conditions and our lack of a 4-wheel drive), including a shot of the ice park, where the crazy climbers risk life and limb, then 'round about through the countryside surrounding beautiful Paonia, Colorado and over McClure Pass, back to Carbondale.
And here are a couple of our stops along the way, below:

Tea at Miss Donna's Tea Room in Montrose.

Stayed at my in-law's just-sold ('sniff'), beautiful home on the golf course
in Montrose.

Brunch Sunday morning with son, Paul, and his charming and beautiful
girlfriend, Nicole, at Gigi Ann's Marketplace ~ way cool place to eat.
Thanks to my wonderful husband for letting me go! Thanks to my sista for suggesting the trip!
But, now... Back to work! There's a pile of laundry next to the washing machine, honest-to-goodness, up to my waist! Schoolwork to do, errands to run, weeds to pull, trips to plan... My goodness, May is shaping up to be a busy month!!

Aren't weekends away with your sister the best?! My sister and I manage to do that at least once a year, and we always have a blast.

Beautiful photos, by the way.

God bless.

Ugh, I miss Colorado! As a youngster I got to spend some of my summers there and I just LOVED it. It must be those amazing mountains.
