And we’re back!





Yes, with the wonders of modern technology… it’s like I never left. But trust me, I did.

And now?

The Vermont vacation.




Don’t despair… I only took 633 pictures this trip.

So really, time will fly right by.




Let’s begin –

We left Maine in the rain, and by the time we got to New Hampshire….




It was a slightly different story.




And by the time we reached the Mount Washington valley?




Not the greatest traveling weather.




Which these cars can attest to. The one on the left had his entire rear quarter panel and tire ripped off by the one on the right –




Slippery? A wee bit.




Winter wonderland continued into Vermont….




Where horses come in rainbow colors.




And that slutty farmer’s daughter was still raising her skirts to the passing cars.

St. Johnsbury had sunshine and green grass.

But by the time we made it to our resort in the western part of the state, Smuggler’s Notch…




It was grey and slightly snow covered.

I’d requested a quiet, secluded spot and got it. Halfway up the mountain.




This was our building, empty and all alone… just the way we like it.




We had a 2 bedroom condo, with a nice fireplace and some awful wallpaper.




A fully stocked kitchen with granite countertops…




And a comfy king sized bed in the master suite.




I liked the corner unit, and it had a deck…




With a mountain view….




There was also a complimentary box of maple cookies on the table.

Free cookies (almost) made up for that awful wallpaper.




That being said, the master bath….




Had more hideous wallpaper, and a whirlpool tub built for two that made me choke.




Oh, yeah… that’s a remote.




And a television over the hopper.


Just what every woman dreams of on vacation….

The husband, never wanting to leave the suite, naked, covered in bubbles and watching endless old John Wayne movies in the bathroom.




So being the thoughtful spouse that I am, I suggested he take the second bathroom all for himself. No sharing space with all my products, no burning himself on my curling iron, no wet towels on the floor.


We’re crafty bitches.

    1. The basic answer is… because we can.
      But in reality, this is the right time of year for the “last call” deals in New England. A two bedroom, 2 bath condo for 7 days, 7 nights? $294. You can’t beat that with a stick.

  1. Well you’re not wrong about the wallpaper. Holy 1988, eh?
    Too bad about the cars sliding. I don’t like that kinda drivin, much as I love me some snows. Glad y’all made it safely.
    Farmer’s daughter’s so cute! Love the rainbow horsies πŸ™‚

    We once stayed in hotel with big tub and tv as well. At that particular hotel, they placed the tv behind glass with an adjustable mirror, so you could watch it even though it was in another room. You called it, too, my husband looooved it!

    1. It was like walking into a time warp. They updated the kitchen counters, fireplace and carpets… but left the 80’s wallpaper and decor. Oh, well. It was large, clean, comfortable and cheap. That’s the fun of vacation ownership – (We don’t say timeshare anymore, or so I’ve been told. Repeatedly!) You never know what unit you’ll get. Some are beautiful… this one? Not so much.

      1. I’m sure Boo is listening…Right, Boo?!

        Anyway, Rivergirl, have you seen my last post? The one where I answered the questions asked by my Readers πŸ˜‰. I have been waiting for your commentary.
