The delights of a winter escape

Thank you to Caitlin Grandison and Shiobhán Mulcahy for
making it possible for Steven and I to leave the herd
(two cats and a crazy dog) behind and take a short trip
to the Ottawa region.

So much fun. There is something incredibly freeing about
getting out on the highway and leaving all of your routines
(okay most of them) behind.  It was a beautiful weekend,
and we got to see friends in Ottawa, and meet the sweet
dog I put on last night's blog.

I did have work to do, and took it with me.  I did some
drawing, and made sure to talk to you here.  And I
felt such profound freedom.  It doesn't even make sense.
It's been a lovely winter so far, and I've enjoyed  every
minute -- but the road, the endless gorgeous scenery --
soooo inspiring.

Have a loving your travels day.

Ottawa is one of the few places I've been to in Canada: Kingston, the Thousand Islands, and camping in a provincial park. I love Canada! So hope to see more.
Enjoy your getaway!

Thanks so much Laura,

We did, and I posted this when we got home. Glad you love it here. I hope we’ll
meet one day soon.
