One of the perks of being "grandparent" age is having the ability to take a mid-week vacation. Just a couple of days when the rates are cheaper and the crowds are smaller. Granddaddy and I took a quick trip up the road for some rest and renewal. It was perfectly okay that it rained most of yesterday. We were cozy inside by the fire. This morning we got to watch a little snow fall as we sipped our coffee. And then we were home in time for lunch. Just a nice little get-away.
