Rough life of the traveler

Thanks to Quentin in the last post for his condolences that our trip sounded so terrible.  Well, it sure hasn’t gotten any better…  Last night, for instance, we were forced to sleep in the most comfortable bed we’ve ever experienced with pillows that I’m seriously considering stealing because they’re amazing.  Then this morning we had to get up and eat a scrumptious fruit salad made with maple-sweetened yogurt and vanilla, followed by local raspberry buttermilk muffins and a delicious potato-based three-cheese quiche.  It was rough.

… so, if you haven’t gather by now, we’re spoiling ourselves these first two days.  We’ve both been working far too much and too hard lately, and by golly there’s something to be said for taking the fruit of some of that labor and spending it on ourselves once in a while!

Karen, during her research of places to stay, found a deal at our B&B where for a bit extra you get a bottle of wine, a cheese plate, and two one-hour massages.  That’s the one we’re currently enjoying, and if this post sounds all dreamy it’s because I’m currently basking in a state of total relaxation following my first-ever massage.  Ahhh.  Gotta say, I was a bit nervous, but when you think about it your job is easy – just lay there and breathe!  Done, and done.

Karen should be wrapping hers up soon and then we’ll get to our wine and cheese plate.  And hopefully write a post about what we actually did all day.  :)

    Guess that will teach Quentin to offer his condolences. Sounds like you’re having a great trip–let’s hope the weather holds up for you and you don’t run into snow.

    Ooh, so jealous… I’m glad you guys are having such a nice relaxing time, you have both totally earned it!
    I’m glad you liked your massage. I can still remember the first massage I ever got, I was a little nervous too. But you’re right, it really doesn’t take a lot of effort on your part! :)

    Geez, throw a little sarcasm your way and you come right back with tons of stuff to make me jealous! That’s just uncalled for. Well I hope you enjoyed the crap out of your stupid wine and cheese and stupid massages.

    Stupid college.
