This weekend saw the end of daylight savings…
My husband booked a stay for us at The Drake Hotel in Chicago. – A staycation that not only avoided airports and travel, but was also time away from mundane household chores. This provided some much appreciated rest before the holiday season gets underway.
Our mini-break was a silent auction purchase from a charity gala, the perfect equation of gift giving (a donation) and gift receiving (a treat for us both). Armed with a bottle of 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon we enjoyed our lake view suite, dined on succulent seafood in the historic Cape Cod Restaurant, and breakfasted on an array of yummy goodies.
With the clocks going back this weekend, my husband (an accountant) proudly announced that we had gained an extra hour of vacation for free. You can’t deny the gift of that!
