Weekend Snapshots: Getting Away From It All

What I wouldn’t do for a trail or mountain to climb right about now…..just to get away from it all for a little while.

Our weekend actually started Friday morning when both my husband and I took off to accompany my inlaws to a medical procedure. It turned out after a full day of waiting, praying, and hoping for the best that it was not meant to be. The results we received were hard to hear and process and then we were all sent home to wait. That meant a weekend to try and process the feelings, thoughts, and fears that are ahead of us all. And we all know where I do this best…..on a trail, far back in the remote wilderness which was not possible since I needed to be the support my husband needed.

Sadly, I have no pictures this time of any new trails, bluffs or even a flowing river. All I did this weekend is make a list of Fall chores that needs to be done before the first snowfall. I did accomplish cleaning and treating our kayaking gear and storing it all away for winter.


Together we escaped for a few short hours to do some fishing which is what my husband finds relaxing in stressful times.


And since we were so close to his favorite blackberry spot we stopped to pick a few to snack on while driving back home.


All in all I would say we had a good weekend…..considering.

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

Where do you go or what do you do to process bad news?
