Or is it Up North? I have no clue. At any rate, I’ve commited us to a week at a cabin in Maine the first full week in August. I feel terrific about this, as you probably can tell, because if I didn’t have the promise of getting away I don’t know what I’d do.
I ask myself – get away from WHAT? It’s not like I’m commuting every day to an office, or that my husband does – and in all probability I’ll be taking work with me (I have two pieces due the week after that for Unique Kolors) – I think it’s just getting AWAY with everything that entails. New stuff to look at, a lake to sit by, new friends to visit – I’m really looking forward to it.
Here’s the image of the cabin from the internet site where I found it:
Whenever we’ve rented a cabin or cottage for a week we’ve done it ‘blind’ – meaning online or via the newspaper – and so far we’ve been very happy. It’s been 2 years since we’ve been away (we went to Vermont for a week right before 9/11)
Last year we tried to go to Virginia, but Atticus (who we’re taking with us this time…) ran away the day we left so we turned around and came right home to find him. What an awful week THAT was!
I think I’m going to see if I can hook up with Clara while we’re up there – stop by her new shop, see how my jewelry is selling… Maybe we can even cook up a Maine Knitting Event!
