Well, the theme for Think Monday, Think ATC couldn't be more apt! I have been missing from the blogging world for a few days and I promise I have a good excuse. A girlfriend and I were enjoying mother nature in a more basic fashion. We decided to "rough it" at a cottage with no electricity and...um...well....outdoor facilities. We read Hollywood magazines by propane lamp and candle, fed the wood burning stove all day and night for heat and washed our dishes by heating water on that very same stove. The simpler lifestyle just seemed to promote long, heart-felt talks, lots of laughs as well as a truer appreciation of the beauty of the autumn leaves, the sky at night filled with stars and the lonely cries of the loons. What a blessing to have wonderful women friends.
