Loving Life after 50

Dreaming of Vacations

Today we hit a minus temperature in the morning and I swear to you the heat was not on at work yet so I darn near froze my butt off. Ever try typing on your computer with gloves and a coat on…. not fun.  Then I tried to use my small heater to compensate and blew a fuse becuase the admin outside of my office apparently shares the same circuit breaker and turned her heater on at the same time,  go figure… so needless to say vacations and warmth are on my mind.

I have many dream vacations, many of them involve wine and/or drinking…

– I want to go wine touring in Tuscany
– I want to go wine touring in Napa
– Australia and New Zealand ( and wine) especially now that Carly is in Perth
– River Cruise in Europe
– Ireland and Scotland are calling my name

But my immediate dream vacation that I am trying to make happen today is the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.  Last year we spent New Years in Memphis watching the Liberty Bowl but this year San Antonio is calling. I am watching seat sales and checking points flights daily but if I can make it happen this year we will make it.  San Antonio is a city of wonder, and a place Kent and I have always talked about, plus we would then be close enough to Austin to head there for a bit ( or so goes the dream)..What is your Dream Vacation,  lining with #blogtober14

For today I will have to settle for dreaming of warmer places in my coat, scarf and hat…..Today is shopping my closet at its best, Scarf and purse are new this year but everything else has been around for awhile.
