T and I went up to the woods last weekend. It wasn't easy. And it wasn't pretty. But it was incredible.
Lately our schedules have been so packed that we can't find time to think. So even though we had to miss three (count 'em) different parties to hit the road, it was a critical move.
Lately I have become way too connected -- Facebook, Twitter, my Blackberry -- and I check them constantly. It's almost become a tic. It had to stop.
So Saturday morning we set out to the Blue Ridge Reservoir, which has a very nice camping area overlooking a canyon/reservoir.
I optimistically did not bring any kind of mattress, so we got horrible sleep. But we got some great rest. We sat in the shade and read books, enjoying the quiet and the 70-degree weather.
I'm hoping as the summer wears on, and 115 degree heat sets in, that we will get even better at dropping everything and leaving town.
Facebook will still be there when we get back.
