The best laid schemes of mice and men
Go often awry,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!
To a Mouse” -Robert Burns

Eldest daughter and I, in anticipation of her being out of school (she’s a teacher) for Fall Break, had made plans to have a girls-spend-the-night-at-The-Farmhouse-for-the-first-time this past weekend.  But, alas, it twas not to be.  The weather turned drizzly and the temps, rather chilly. And as there is only a screen on a couple windows and plastic over a couple more, we decided that we would wait for a girls getaway to The Farmhouse; at least until the temps are a little less chilled or until the windows are completed.  Hopefully both will occur sooner rather than later.
