« Part 635: What You See Isn't Always What You Get Part 636 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 637: It's Good To Be Back »

With some purrr-suasion, my partner Keith convinced me that it was time to hit the road and take a break.

He has been asking me to go with him for a couple of months now, and it seems that there is always something to do that needs doing and makes for a good excuse not to go.

But it is winter and a mild one at that. We figured out that we haven’t really been anywhere or left even for a full day since last August. That’s too long.

So last night on our evening walk, he wore me down and I agreed to head out and spend the day and night in Halifax.

We are taking our laptop to check for orders and read emails, but that is the extent of ‘work’ that we are planning. Of course we will pick around and shop and find some cool things that can be used in our creating. There is no way we will miss heading to the wood place. But the trip is going to be mostly to get away and relax and have fun for a couple of days. We all need a break sometimes.

Have a great one today. If you email me, please be patient with my responses. I will certainly get back to you when we return.

look out Halifax! Here we come!

Happy Thursday!

Enjoy your mini vacation. You guys deserve it! Have fun in the wood store. By the way, The Toler and I will be hitting the wood show at the end of the month and we can”t wait. Sorry to see that you won’t be there.
