Abby and I are spending the whole weekend together, which is unusual since I ordinarily work on Saturday. Despite the sweltering heat we are having a pretty good time. We nap and cook and piddle. This afternoon we went out to lunch, followed by the requisite shopping trip.
Presently I am teaching at the college and the vo-tech as well as working my day job, and while that’s all very exciting and fulfilling, being with my wife this weekend is encouraging a certain nostalgia for being together on the road. Add to that the fact that I have been reviewing some unedited video from our 2009 trip, Scent of the Desert, (which I intend to edit), and the open road, as the title says, softly calls.
We are already planning our next major trip, our annual October anniversary excursion, and while we haven’t nailed down all our options, it’s already sounding great. In the mean time, Abby’s daughter and her husband are coming to visit with our grandson Paul in a couple of weeks, and that’s very exciting, especially for Abby.
But when I think of all our grand times together, the grandest of them has have been our time together on the open road. It calls again.
I know the feeling. My wife and I were making regular road trips during the first years of our marriage, up to and including her pregnancy. Since then, that’s all been cut off…
I’m itching to drive and see stuff again. :-)
It’s good to see you guys together in the same post.
