Think about! "Retreat" seems to imply backing away from something, as in "The army retreated". Is a personal getaway a retreat then? a retreat from normal every day life? retreat from problems? Does it mean escape?
Door County Renaissance Faire at which I will be playing. Instead of coming home on Sunday, when Andy is returning home, I'm going to stay for the week in between the two Faire weekends.
As Wednesday is July 4th, Andy is coming back up Tuesday night after work, and he took the rest of the week off. So - the long and short of it is, I will be a widow by choice for 2 1/2 days - sounds like fun. I'm going to visit yarn shops that Andy has little interest in visiting - oh, and there is a quilt shop as well in the area. I'm also taking my sock knitting machine. I've wound lots of yarn and plan to do lots of work while I'm on my own.
