Take a break...be a tourist in your own hometown!

Didn't get that holiday break in a sunny clime this year? Give yourself the gift of mini breaks in your own area...the "be a tourist in your own home town" idea.

Pick up tourist info brochure, pretend you've never been to your area before, & follow the highlight suggestions...you have an adventure before you, the adventure of surprise.

Take in the sights that your tourism group promotes, enjoy lunch & dinner at new places, take a different route from here to there...go to the theatre & remind yourself why a live performance is so involving...how about a live concert...been to your Art Gallery lately? A museum (no, they're not just for school tours)?

Consider a massage...that touch that heals is a major restorative.

Walk a garden...snowdrops are out, early rhodos, ornamental cherry blossoms in protected enclaves, daffodil bulbs poking up...every day is a little lighter.

Need a light movie to make you smile? Seen The Butcher's Wife?

Shake it up a little, dare to do something a little different to your established routine...you're on a baby holiday, right?

A quick fix...buy some tulips, red or yellow...the centerpiece for dinner!

Spring is almost here...ahh...breathe.

Hi Li,  So right in vacations in our own town.  I have friends from back east come and visit and always look to me to show them the sights, I need to know them.

Awesome suggestion.  I have lived here for almost 10 years and there are still things I haven't seen yet.
