Have you taken a summer vacation this year? Where did you go? What did you see? Did you drive or fly?
I’m taking a gas-saving vacation. I’ve been wandering around following Father Tim in Jan Karon’s Mitford books. Jan is one of my favorite authors and I think I have most of her books. I’ve been re-reading them in sequence.
What a good time I’ve had there in the mountains of western North Carolina and down to an island off the coast. Currently I’m house-sitting on a farm with Father Tim and Cynthia. Renewing old acquaintances with the many wonderful characters in these books.
Yes, this has been a wonderful summer vacation … didn’t have to pack a suitcase, didn’t have to drive anywhere, didn’t have to sleep in strange beds, had no post cards to send. Just had to close each book feeling refreshed in spirit.
