For the past ten days we have been at our favorite spot in the desert...an oasis near Palm Springs. We've enjoyed the palms, pools and sunshine...lazy river rides and reading on chaise lounges...morning walks along the greens and afternoon smoothies on the deck. We've eaten well and cooked little...we've laughed lots and played Rooke every day...and even did a wee bit of shopping (one needs a few souvenirs to take back and a supply of Bath & Bodyworks product until the next trip south of the border).
Jim and Kathy (my sister and brother-in-law from Manitoba) left winter behind long enough to join us here for a week. What fun it has been!
But we know there is a real life out there...and tomorrow we will be leaving this dream that is Palm Springs behind, and heading home. We hear there has been rain...and lots of it...and we don't mind that we missed out. But there are a lot of things drawing me north...and I'm looking forward to be back home...where I belong!
And now I am off to enjoy the last day of my desert retreat.
