25 February 2008

It sure was great to get away. When you're not at your own home, you can really relax. There's no bills to pay, calls to return, bathrooms to clean, clothes to wash. You have the opportunity to just lay around. That's what I did this weekend, along with great company. If my computer was up to snuff, I'd post some pictures. I should be able to do that in a day or two. I drove up to Deep Creek Lake, which is in the far north western part of MD, about a 3 hour drive. Up in the mountains. I was able to listen to a lot of my audiobook, Duma Key, by Steven King. I loved the drive through the snow covered mountains and valleys. There were five of us at the condo: the owners of my salon (their condo), a co-worker (and friend) and her husband, and me. Unfortunately for them, it was not a good skiing weekend. It rained on Friday night, and although the trails were groomed, it wasn't the best conditions so they didn't ski but a little on Friday. We spent our days and nights in sweats, reading, watching TV, cooking and eating. They (not me) took naps. We went into a little town on Sunday morning to eat at a luncheonette, and walk around. That was our big outing. It was a quiet, relaxing and lazy weekend. It was perfect.

I'm off to read blogs now. There's no way I'll be able to catch up and comment after being away for 3 days, but I can't just click on 'mark all as read' on Google Reader. So I'm probably just going to browse. I missed you all. I'll be back to my normal routines, and hopefully faster computer, soon. Later!

Sounds like a cozy weekend. Nothing like a cabin in the mountains. It's alway been a goal of mine to have one someday. Guess I better get busy.

Love to ya sweets - hope your warm and snug tonight !

I had no idea there were mountains and skiing in MD. That's interesting. I guess I learned something new today.

I've been to Deep Creek lake before. I actually swam in it once. It was August, but the water was still cold. Pretty country up there.

Have a good day!

Hey, I just got back from my vacation and I'm already envious of yours. What's up with THAT? I booked my flight for Phoenix and I'm outta here again on the 18ish. Yea, I'm ready for another outing (of a Panera nature).

Gypsy said...

Sounds like a perfect weekend and one I would literally kill for. Well ok I wouldn't go that far but I could really use some time away to just relax. As some of your commenters have already mentioned, I would have napped too :)

I know what you mean about being far behind. I was busy for 2 days and it is taking AGES to read all my favourite blogs. I can't mark them all as read either if I haven't read them. I'm too scared I will miss out on something....lol.
