I have always loved those signs that small business owners put on their doors when they head off on vacation. I don’t have a photo of one, or I’d have used that instead. Yes, finally I am getting a vacation. Sure I get away to Edmonton a few weekends during the year but that is no vacation. I have nearly a full week of vacation in Hawaii although there is an entire day of traveling on each end of my trip. Timing to get away couldn’t be any better in some ways because we’re in the middle of a deep freeze (not unusual for living way up here). Yesterday morning it was 36 below zero when we got up and it warmed up to 27 below zero — that is BEFORE any wind chill factor by the way. Today there’s more of a wind and only a few degrees ‘warmer’. So I’m thrilled that I am heading to much warmer climes.
I will be completely unplugged while away so there will be no contact from me until January 25th, 2011 — see you then.
