Taking a Vacation in the Desert... Instant Summer

I need a vacation! It's been a cool, rainy spring here. Sixty degrees one day, then back down to forty the next. I need some blue skies and sunshine. I need an aqua blue pool to float in under that blue sky. I need palm trees and umbrella drinks.

Well, next monday we are going on vacation! I haven't had much time recently to think about it. I've been too busy being sick.
Now I have to hurry up and pack. Thank goodness I took care of shopping for some vacation clothing a couple of weeks ago. There is a big difference between what you wear every day in a cool Kentucky spring and what you wear on holiday in Southern California. I'm going get a pedicure and have my legs waxed. No more jeans and knee socks for a week!

My husband's birthday is in April. His daughter's birthday is in April. So, we decided to celebrate by all of us going on a vacation together in April. Grandpa (they call him Poppy), stepmom and step-grandmother me (I'm Grandma Judy), daughter, son-in-law and four-year old granddaughter. They like to play golf, so they decided on Palm Springs. Ideally, I would like to have an ocean nearby, but I'm sure there will be plenty of warm sunshine and pools to splash and float in. And some umbrella drinks would be nice. And maybe a massage or two.

Sounds absolutely heavenly. A chaise lounge by the pool, a big stack of great books, lots of sunshine, umbrella drinks (I'm especially fond of Pina Coladas), a few good walks each day ...oh yes and massages. Poor you !

I know... poor me! I almost feel guilty.
Except I do know I will be watching a very rambunctious four-year old while the three golfers play.
I love Pina Coladas too!

Sounds like heaven to me, Judy. Like Susan, I'd throw in the good books and yes.....I'll have a Pina Colada too!
