I’m off to the cottage – so looking forward to this mini-vacation.
I have no Internet connection there now. Nada, nil. Not even the old dial-up-from-hell one. This cyberspace disconnect will be good for my brain – not to mention my a**.
And, heck, there are other addictions to indulge.
What?! You thought I was referring to alcohol and other such naughty-natured indulgences?
No, no, no! I mean communing with nature. This too is addicting.
Sitting on the dock and/or deck, breathing in the fresh air, absorbing the sounds of the north – ALL THE WHILE KEEPING A WARY EYE OUT* FOR BEARS!!
We all come out of hibernation eventually, don’t we?
Have a wonderful weekend. I plan to.
*“keeping a wary eye out” – Such a strange expression…makes me think of an eyeball hanging out of its socket. The reality is I’ll be keeping both eyes open and looking over my shoulder. My fear of bears is something I’ll never outgrow. “Outgrow.” Yet another strange expression…
Enough, Beth! Just go!
