On Friday I stepped away from work. Lots going on, but I had done what I could to get things in place for Monday. And with that, for the most part I was off until Monday morning.
On Saturday our family spent some time in the afternoon hiking with friends out in nature. Part of that hike involved walking out onto a walkway into a marsh. It was beautiful.
The smoke (it’s getting better) in Washington lent a hazy yellow to the atmosphere, dulling the colors and adding a feeling of warmth to everything.
Looking back I have some wonderful photos of the kids, and a feeling of just getting away and taking a break.
That’s important. We need times like this.
