Vacation - Here I come....

Time for a little more R & R, this time not at the Lake but at the generosity of a Good Friend, his Villa in Punta Minitas at Casa Del Campo in La Romana, D.R. and I am really looking forward to it. I believe I will take my laptop so that I have the security of knowing that I can keep in touch - but the question is.. "Will I turn it on"? Hmm.. we shall see. I hope to really be able to just take it all in, at a comfortable pace and relax and enjoy.

I cannot believe how close the end of summer is.. I wanted to get a new pair of sandals today for my trip and all I found were boots and sweaters...I swear if I see a Christmas Ornament on display in September I will loose my ----- mind! I really need to stay 40 just a little longer - OKAY?

Anyway, I hope to collect some beautiful shells, drink some (lots) rum, swim some laps, do a little reading, fishing, drink more rum, um.. gambling (hey, you can take the girl out of Jersey.....) and explore. I am not an island shopper per se' -- the only thing I usually do is purchase my limit for island produced product ( I guess that will be Rum) and any other item they make there and get a few trinkets for home..and I cannot take the sun - so my days of sun bathing are long gone..(thats okay I can do without the extra spots!) It will be me and my SPF65 all the way, baby!
All I know is I am REALLY Looking forward to just getting out of Dodge..

Any etsy, flickr, website orders will be addressed upon my return Aug 29th!

I will blog from Paradise - Maybe
If not,
Til Next time,

Lisa p.
