Back in the mountains

It’s the weekend – and I’m back in the mountains again, this time with the group of friends I call the Wild Women. It’s our annual fall retreat at the summer home owned by Signing Woman’s family. Four of us drove up last night though dark green pine trees and hardwoods that have turned red-gold-yellow. We arrived just as the day was turning dark and cold, and soon we were gathered by a crackling fire with bowls of squash soup. Another four friends will join us sometime today.

We woke up this morning to a light rain and fog moving across the water. I built a fire in the big stone fireplace and put on the tea kettle. We’ve had a lazy morning, lounging by the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the lake. Sun is just coming out now to burn off the morning mist, and we’re talking about which hike to take.

So now, of course, the burning question is - will your blog soon be getting another spike in "hits" for "naked pictures of wild women".

Today made me wish that we had a real, functioning fireplace, as it was chilly during the day and quite cold when it got dark.

I had to settle for my mother's chicken noodle soup instead, but it's a pretty big consolation prize.

Tie-dye Brother-in-law: For sure. It's pretty damned cold here though, so they will have to be indoor shots. It's hard to get your friends to strip naked when they're worried about frostbite.

I'm just building a roaring fire to heat up the lodge right now ....
