We tend to get wrapped up in the affairs of home and domestic life. There are chores quotidian, seasonal to-do lists, the garden to tend, and all the deferred maintenance projects, which ask for attention in various ways — squeaks, whines, or just plain hollers, like the rotten porch board that has become not just squishy, but a hole.
Sometimes it’s good to get away from the hollers of daily life, and skedaddle.
We got away last week, and went to Vermont. The first of the grandchildren was graduating from high school. Of course we went!
Here is a small group of images from the trip.
We started out in rain, but outran it as we progressed to the north’ard.
We got to our destination: Montpelier. Coquina and I went for a walk
Montpelier is full of small barns and garages.
They’re going to get their own post one of these days.
We went to graduation.
After the graduation, the youngest sibling worked off energy accumulated from two hours of sitting through a ceremony.
We’re back home.
We had a wonderful time.
Those chores didn’t go away.
The tomatoes grew about four inches.
They are definitely going to need staking.
And it’s time for the first major picking of pease!
