What My Weekend Will Hold:
1. A retreat in a cabin in the woods with a dozen women. I think I will be the youngest one there, which is kind of exciting because at the age of fifty, I hardly ever get to be the youngest! (Maybe in honor of the occasion, my crow’s feet will opt to recede a little.)
2. Some sort of tropical storm/hurricane which may or may not turn into a “storm of historical proportions” as it makes its way up the eastern seaboard.
Unfortunately, Activity 2 may adversely affect Activity 1 because the cabin in the woods is reachable only by an unpaved road and when it rains, the road becomes virtually impassable.
So. We shall see.
And speaking of storms, Steve and I were out-of-town the last time there was a storm so we weren’t present to witness Summer’s fear of storms. A visit by a hurricane/tropical storm should make for an interesting couple of days with her. If anyone has any advice for weathering big storms with a dog who is afraid of them, please let us know.
Technical Issues Follow Up (Part 3)
I was happy to hear that a few of you started receiving email updates again. The bad news, however, is we did nothing on this end to make that happen so I have no idea if it might occur again.
Sigh. Dontcha love technology?
The guy that I contacted for help with the technical issues (which seem to be narrowed down to trouble commenting and not receiving email notifications) asked me if I would find out two things from you:
1. What browser are you using? (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc)
2. Are you on a Mac or a PC?
So if anyone has any further technical snafus to report, please include that info.
Also, if you’ve already left a report, please take a moment to briefly report it again by just saying “trouble commenting” or “not receiving notifications” along with the info above. Thanks!
The Calm Before the Storm
I took these pictures almost a year ago and just came across them again yesterday. They are such peaceful, serene scenes; it soothes my soul a little to gaze at them, especially in light of what is heading our way.
Here’s hoping these pictures will send you into your weekend with a little more serenity as well.
