You take a Type A personality and a Plan and that can be a tricky situation. Especially when something has the potential to threaten the plan.
I am on Day 1 of my 4 days off. I have plans for all 4 days. Sounds perfect, right? Well what happens when you wake up this morning with a headache? Day 3 of the same headache, I might add. But I would not relent with the Plan. I wanted to go for a drive to Parrsboro. Our little beach front restaurant re-opened last weekend. They are only open in the summer. The best scallop burgers, and I have been dreaming of having one all winter.
I felt like crap when I got up. I immediate took a couple of pills. I'm not sure if I actually looked green, but I certainly felt green. My stomach was not good at all. Instead of thinking of changing the plan, I instead thought of places along the road where I might have to throw up. (I know, Type A - crazy) Auntie came downstairs and looked at me and said "Maybe we should go another day" (so apparently I did look green) No, I said we were going - I would be fine soon. I said just wait a half hour, I will have a cup of tea. See, if you are from Nova Scotia, the cure-all for everything is a good strong cuppa tea. Well, the tea plus a couple of digestive cookies and I did start to feel better.
We headed out as planned. It was a gorgeous sunny day and the drive was lovely. We arrived at the restaurant, me in total anticipation of the scallop burger. I scan the menu 3 times. Its not there...... I ask the waitress and she says its off the menu. Huh? My response - you have scallops, you have burger buns......can't you just slap them together?? Well, apparently not. I feel my day circling the drain again. Hrmmph, WHATEVER. We did stay for lunch, however disappointing as it was. (Note to self: need to find new restaurant)
Next stop was the lovely Sweet Briar Boutique. We did manage to pick up a few little treats there. A cute little summery necklace and a few little goodies for a birthday gift for a friend. The retail therapy helped brighten my mood :)
Once we got back home and I dropped off the Golden Girls, I went to have a coffee and visit with my friend who owns a downtown boutique. She says, I owe you money. YAY! She sold some of my little hooked pieces. Nothing puts the hooking mojo back in your spirit like money in your pocket!
So tonight I picked up my hook for the first time in several weeks. I didn't realize how much I missed it until I pulled those first few loops. The day ended with hot fudge sundaes at 9:30pm. You need to be little decadent on vacation days :)
