Last week I was so lucky and got to go to this cabin with a few of my best friends. Keith was supposed to have had the days I was going off and then his schedule got all switched around and the sweet guy that he is, he arranged for his mom to take the kids for me. She's so good to me to help out and let me enjoy a night away.
We left at about 8:30 am and didn't stop talking until 11:30ish that night. I seriously don't know how we could find so much to talk about, but it was a blast. We played a "fun" card game, (I say "fun" because it would have been a lot more fun had I won....!) took a walk and ate a lot of junk food. I even learned how to do some embossing and I painted my toenails without hiding from the kids to do it! I love these ladies and will forever have a special bond with them.
I looked back through my pictures and realized that I pretty much only took pictures of a squirrel they've named "Gutsy"(You'll see why). There is a squirrel that always hangs out by this cabin and will literally eat right out of your hands! It was really the coolest thing! Well, it was actually kind of creepy, I kept thinking we could end up on one of those "When Animals Attack" shows, but we were just fine! At one point the silly little thing just jumped right up into my lap and looked at me like, "Hello? Where's the grub?"
We spotted some deer up there too. I love being in the mountains. Not just for the animals, but the sheer beauty of nature. I think mountains are so amazing, and it probably stems from living without them for years, but I am always amazed to think of this beautiful world Heavenly Father created for us to live in.
I had a wonderful relaxing time and just enjoyed recharging. I think I really needed it. I really appreciate those who helped make it possible for me to go.
