OK, so Christmas is over, so the snow and bitter below zero windchills can stop, already!
We have had the never-ending snow for so long, I have to look at old, summer garden pictures to even remember that there is grass under all of this!
The poor hens and Albi have been penned up in their little hen-house for so long, they are pecking at each other for lack of anything better to do!
I dare not open their little chicken door, as it will only let in frigid temps and blowing snow!
So I go in every morning, cooing and fawning over them, with lots of scraps accumulated in the previous 24 hours. Plus, some scraps that were not quite ready for the chicken bowl, but, come on... I have some heart!
So, rice that was not quite ready to be tossed, lettuce that was still quite edible, even by MY standards, and some raw oatmeal tossed in for good measure! At least they have food to comfort them!
The poor chickadees and goldfinch are at a loss!
The snow keeps filling up the entrances to their bird feeders, which I diligently go out and shake a couple times a day. I have taken to just tossing out a quart of seed, and letting the juncos, doves, and sparrows just have at it!
Unfortunately, we also have hawks. And more than once have we come home to see blood and feathers from an unfortunate hawk/dove encounter...the dove being the obvious loser.
All this to say, I have had quite enough of this snow and bitter cold!
So...I have spent the day perusing the world wide web, for all-inclusive vacations to any place that is warm year round.
What I came up with is: Puerto Vallarta!!
More explicitly, the Dreams Resort and Spa.
Oh yeah. I know what I'm talkin' 'bout!
Round trip tickets and a 7 night stay at this all-inclusive resort located on the Pacific Ocean: around $3000 for 2 adults.
You betcha, I'm takin' Farmboy!
All inclusive: round trip air-fare, room, food, 24 hour room service, drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), pools, kayaking, etc.
Did I mention food???
Did I mention drinks???
Did I mention $3000???
Did I mention: PASSPORTS???
OF WHICH WE HAVE NONE???
Guess what I am going to do this week?
Apply for my passport!!!
Where would you love to vacation to get warm and cozy this winter?
