A Little Trip

Hello, Dear Ones. Mr. Precious and I took a little trip last weekend and I thought I would share it with you. I can't tell you if we went north, south, or west but it wasn't east! :) I haven't studied the map of New York so I don't even know where we really are. Doesn't matter to me.
It's too cold, too much salt on the roads and no RV parks are open til mid April so we didn't take Kiki. We just hopped in the car and went. There is still so much snow but the main roads are clear. We took the back roads to be able to go through the little towns. Just love doing that.
 Such sweet little towns. We stopped in a few little shops and thrift shops. I even found a little bitty Butterprint Pyrex fridgie dish! Sweet!
 And the barns along side the road. How I love red barns and there were so many. Just take a peep.
 Wasn't it so beautiful? We did some more sightseeing but I'll show you that another day.
 We had a very nice lunch in Rhinebeck, New York and spied a sweet little inn and stayed there for the night. Rhinebeck was a darling little town, kinda touristy, but we loved it.
 Such a lovely place, very old and lots of famous ones have stayed here.
 We had a nice dinner and buffet breakfast in the little garden room. I saw some snaps of this area in the summer and there are lots of flowers blooming.
 There's Mr. Precious with our pillows. We're old now and could care less about what folks thought about us bringing in our pillows. We sleep much better with our tiny heads on our pillows.
 And me...all bundled up because it's still so cold.
I don't know why I didn't get a full on picture of our room but I just took separate snaps of everything. If you'll look on the little desk there was a bit of creme of sherry and two little glasses they leave in each room. I don't drink but I did take three sips and slept like a baby. Hmm...maybe I should, nah! :)

So many of you commented on the John Denver note song I left on a previous post and how you enjoyed it so I thought I would leave another one for you. Don't you love his songs and his beautiful voice? He was another that left us too soon. Don't know if you knew this, but he was born in Roswell, New Mexico at the air force base where his dad was stationed. We lived in Roswell for ten years and loved it there. It wasn't all UFOy then. So until next time.

You're always a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Back Home Again

There's a storm across the valley, clouds are rollin' in
The afternoon is heavy on your shoulders.
There's a truck out on the four lane, a mile or more away
The whinin' of his wheels just makes it colder.

He's an hour away from ridin' on your prayers up in the sky
And ten days on the road are barely gone.
There's a fire softly burning; supper's on the stove
But it's the light in your eyes that makes him warm.

Hey, it's good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Yes, 'n, hey it's good to be back home again

There's all the news to tell him: how's you spend your time?
And what's the latest thing the neighbors say
And your mother called last Friday; "Sunshine" made her cry
And you felt the baby move just yesterday.

 And oh, the time that I can lay this tired old body down
And feel your fingers feather soft up-on me
The kisses that I live for, the love that lights my way
The happiness that livin' with you brings me.

It's the sweetest thing I know of, just spending time with you
It's the little things that make a house a home.
Like a fire softly burning and supper on the stove.
And the light in your eyes that makes me warm.
~ sung by John Denver
