Off to Sta. Rosa for the weekend

We've decided to take off Friday morning and get a couple days of R&R in Sta. Rosa. Of course that means we'll probably be incomunicado since the internet rarely works well out there. I'm taking a couple of books and the West Wing DVDs, Ivan's packing the hammock and Andrea has a few books as well. You have no idea how thankful we are for a place where we can get away!

Especially this weekend when the temperatures are supposed to sky rocket. It was in the 90s yesterday and today and they expect it to get even hotter. It's usually a little cooler in Sta. Rosa because the elevation is higher.

But winter isn't totally over; it's supposed to drop all the way down to 69° by Tuesday.

I guess it's unusually warm even by Carlos Paz standards. The warmer temps have totally faked out the foliage. Suddenly this week we see trees and bushes in all hues of red, yellow, pink, white, lavender... Our peach tree has loads of blossoms and it's just so pretty! I'll have a photo to share with you on Sunday.

Definitely the shortest winter I've ever been through, except the five years we lived in South Florida. But since they don't have seasons in Florida I don't think we should really count that. We do have seasons here in Carlos Paz, it's just that winter barely registers on the calendar.

Speaking of calendars... What are your plans for the weekend? Any end-of-the-summer trips or special events?
