Don't Blink

We're now entering the fastest month of the year.

Blink and Christmas will be here.

We're at the cabin right now. We haven't been up here in 3 months. I think that's the longest we've been away since we bought this place in 1999. There's a little snow on the ground and it's cold, but the forecast for the rest of the weekend is clear. Time slows down when we're up here. Which is normally GREAT. And since we haven't been up here in so long, the cabin needed a bit of attending to so we couldn't put off our visit any longer. I just can't help but think of all the things that need to get done in the next 25 days.

I had hoped to do a bit of knitting for a Christmas present while we were here, but I injured my right arm somehow. So I'll just enjoy sitting by the warm fire and read a bunch of magazines.

Yellow flowers in the high country the last time we were here, early September.

Sometimes you need to slow down, it's interesting that time stands still at the cabin. That time warp is a blessing and a wonderful find.

You are so right, Mad, about the blink of this month! Add in our upcoming two weeks in Germany and it feels almost gone.

In the meanwhile, your getaway sounds like heaven. So sorry you hurt your arm but maybe your body was saying "enough is enough." Just breathe!

Enjoy your time away. I know what you mean about the thoughts about what needs to be done in the coming days. I find myself thinking about it and slipping into a state of inertia. I get overwhelmed and get less done.

Wake me up in January!
