A Romantic Getaway?


We'll find out! Paul wanted to sleep with me in the desert under the stars but I insisted on a tent. I'm not much of a cowboy. Paul and his family didn't use a tent on their camping trips growing up. But I'm too nervous for that. Too many coyotes and snakes and who knows what out here.

We scouted around looking for a flat piece of ground shaded by juniper trees but the idea of dragging our mattress halfway across the property didn't appeal. Yes, we're sleeping on a mattress with sheets and blankets and pillows in our tent on the deck of the barn and not on the ground! I'm not embarrassed. You get to a certain age and what counts most is comfort and that's why we're sleeping out in the first place. It's too hot in the house.

There is a tree and a nice view from the deck so it's not as bad as it looks. And we can always drag everything out further tomorrow night if it's not "romantic" enough. We'll see how it goes. We're thinking it will be fun.
