Far From the Madding Crowd

After days and days of grey, sullen weather, the sun has finally shown his face. It's still cold, of course, but the weekend forecast predicts it shall be "Sunny and delightful".

Tell that to my feet. I usually have my Rocket Dogs on, but they're in the wash so that they'll be nice and snug over our upcoming weekend at the lake house. Meantime, my favorite throw and warm socks do the trick.

I'm really looking forward to the long weekend (we're leaving Friday morning and won't be back until Monday evening). The lake house, which has been so generously opened to us by our friend, Amanda, is at Tenkiller Ferry Lake, about a two-hour drive east from here in a deserted, wooded area. There are other houses nearby, but Amanda tells us no one's out there this time of year. Silly us. But we're packing our favorite throws, board games, my guitar, books, wine and snacks, and are looking forward to being all alone, far from humanity both in actual life and on the internet. (There is no internet at the lake house, no cable, and spotty cell phone reception, and that's fine by us.) We can take Nigel out on walks without his lead, hopefully to the water's edge and all around the dusty lane. Of course, I'll take a lot of pictures.

I'm not sure if I'll be making another entry or not before then, so I'll take this opportunity to wish you all a very enjoyable weekend. Enjoy the sunshine, if you have it!
