It’s been over a week since I’ve posted anything on either of my blogs. Maybe it’s the post-election doldrums. Maybe it’s just my overall feeling of blueness brought about by personal issues that are seemingly out of my control. Maybe I just miss being in the wacky world of retail at this time of the year. Last weekend we drove out to a favorite spot of ours on the coast of the Olympic Peninsula. We had reserved a cabin within a short walk of the beach and a forest of very large green trees. The only drawback was that we ended up with a cabin without a separate sleeping space for our two-year-old son. Needless to say, it was very difficult to get our son to sleep when he was so excited about being at the ocean. One highlight was spotting two bald eagles roosting in a large wind battered tree onshore. We couldn’t resist using the wood stove in the cabin, even though when we used it we had to open all the windows due to the heat. I believe that next week I’ll be going away for three nights on my own. The purpose is to give my wife some time at home on her own. She has been experiencing a dearth of quiet time to herself. I’ll also enjoy having a few days away to read and rest, but my emotions about the situation are a little dodgy at the moment.
