Thursday I took a little road trip with my friend Laura to Davenport, Iowa. She had a presentation to make at the Radisson Hotel there and was driving up by herself, so she asked me to come along for the ride. It was only 24 hours and God knows I need a little P & Q-I am a mother of 5 you know.
I had plently of alone time and I just relished it. I got to the hotel, took a nap on the Sleep Number bed (how cool is that?) then awoke to do an art journal. I thought I’d be more in the mood to do some creative pages, but I had a bit of a headache. What I really was in the mood for was Jane Eyre. I popped 3 Motrin then snuggled up in the overstuffed, red hotel chair and devoured about 5 chapters. The room was quiet and lovely. I thoroughly enjoyed my down time. I could use a day like this once a week.
