Mountain Living

Let every weekend be a 4-day weekend!  On Thursday afternoon, you are wrapping up
four power days at the office and telling your friends that you are heading that evening
to Grand Lake, two hours away yet worlds apart. You've got your mobile devices and
are ready to work on the bigger picture. Friday morning, you wake up in your mountain
retreat and already .... you are thinking is more clear as you plan ahead and tie neat little bows
on completed tasks. Saturday dawns and you are fully attuned to your alpine environment
and tingling with life. The great outdoors beckons with its newness, immensity and wildlife.
Or maybe you'll just have it out your window or beyond your deck while you enjoy some
private time with your family ... or a neglected hobby ... or a book. Saturday afternoon or eve,
you are ready to hobnob with some of the other lucky fellows enjoying their extended weekend.
Dine at a restaurant, walk the boardwalk, do some shopping, cruise by the beach ....
remind yourself to have your boat ready (even if its just a kayak) for Sunday.
Sunday morning you do some outdoor church time. Now your head is really stuffed
with plans. You get a head start on them on Sunday eve and then sleep like a rock.
Early Monday morning, you zip back to work ready to hit the floor running.
Traffic is not an issue and everyone is amazed with how much you get done ...
and how young you look!
