Time out


Hi, everyone. Sorry for my slightly-longer-than-usual silence. (Not that regularly irregular posting is new for me.) Things have been crazy at work. Lots to do and I'm in campaign coverage overdrive, since there's just a few more weeks until the Nov. 2 general municipal election. Plus, I have a new editor which adds to the typical stress load.

Anyway, it all leaves me longing to take a grown-up time out. To find a quiet, peaceful place and just get away from it all. Where deadlines and to-do lists don't exist, nor do dreams about work. (Aren't those awful? More like nightmares.)

I think I found a few good spots to take this much-needed (albeit imaginary) time out. If you'd like to come along, I'll save you a seat. (Or a stump. Stretch of sand. Dock. You get the idea.)

Wishing you (and me) a peaceful rest of the week...

Good luck getting through the week - especially getting through the election! I'm ready for it to be over. The photos are all too wonderful!

I would totally join you on all of those trips, but you're missing one place - Disneyland. Preferably at Christmas. :)

Hope your week gets better. Hot tea and a magazine just before bed also work wonders...

Fall always brings on that extra bit of busy-ness into everyone's life it feels like, mine included. These photos sure make me wish summer lingered just a little bit longer. They look so relaxing!

Hope you had a good weekend, Carissa!
