I'm not usually given to obsession, but this year I redid the wash cloth pattern for the Lystour about ten times. As I kept redoing it I kept asking myself, why? Now I think that it was the foreshadowing of a great adventure. My husband and I are going to spend a week at a spa in Poland next week. This happened rather suddenly because we wanted to see my Uncle Joe who lives in Karlsruhe, Germany. But he was going to the spa for two weeks, so we graciously decided to join him and his lovely wife. It is so delicious to think that we will have to have massages and hydrotherapy and curative baths for a whole week. Plus the food is supposed to be fabulous and there are great walking trails all around. The name of the town is Kudowa Zdroj right next to the Czech border town of Nachod.
The spa is part of their health care--imagine such health care in America. I'll sacrifice myself and my dear husband and let you know if this is the magic formula for the rest of America.
Meanwhile on the home front, Ruth looks like she needs a bit of care, but she's just excited about manning the store for three weeks with a lot of overtime. Lia and Sue will help, but Marguerite will be in Italy and France for about two weeks.
To keep their spirits up, we promise to send lots of updates on our progress through vacation land.
