An Early Christmas at the Cabin

Well, after almost an entire year of working nonstop weekends included Team Crowned Goat headed to the cabin for a two-week break to rest, relax and reflect.  It felt like Christmas came early for me this year.

 I had such a good time.

 The agenda was simple

 hike as much as nature would allow and

take time to enjoy the simple things. Can you believe these deer? I couldn’t get them all in the shot but there were 6 of them up on the ridge!

 Simple things like easy suppers,

 indulgent snacks,

 relaxing mornings,

 nothing on the to do list (like making the beds),

 catching up on favorite authors,

 quiet afternoons,

 stopping to smell the cedar,

 listening to the sound of rain on the roof,

 reflecting on this past year,

 making new goals for next year,

 swinging on the porch swing,

 and napping.

 Lots of napping.

 I’ll save the reality that Christmas is in 15 short days for the ride back!

    CoCo- wow! Everyone needs time away like that! You did it perfectly, the reading and porch swing sitting sounded the best to me. So glad you got to get away and relax! Now, back to reality.

    Thank you so much for sharing this Coco! I hope you still feel rested and restored from your lovely get-away. I know I will revisit this post over the next couple of weeks when things get too crazy. It’s a virtual retreat for a quick mental reset. But now, back to gift wrapping! Bwg ~~~
