Sounds like a great get- away. Did you bring the combs to scare the computer into behaving itself? ;)

Deb Robson

Hi, Joy:

I'm laughing. This is one of the computers that *does* behave itself. No threats required.

And it's a little daunting to have four sets of combs at hand. Especially the big guys. They do a wonderful job, but there is no mistaking them for playthings.

It is wonderful up here. It took months to set it up! I'd better make the most of it.



Well...if you were expecting to be attacked by any wild beasts (or men, for that matter) the combs should provide sufficient personal protection!

Sounds like a great work retreat! sending productive wishes.


Looks divine! Bona fortuna!


Whenever I see all your equipment, I am awed. I thought I was over the top with my several sets of cards, 2 sets of combs, and other paraphrenalia. I am, in comparison, obviously a neophyte!

Work hard AND have fun up there! I hope you do get just a little snow to play in. :)


Sounds like Colorado's weather is as unpredictable as Vermont's. I always say "They've got the satellites, but we've got the windows."
And that high-tech/low-tech juxtaposition is *very* amusing! 8)


Happy working, walks, and wonder at the feeling of focusing! XO

There are bears up here. We need to carry bear-bells when we go outside. You're right that the combs might be one of the few things that would make a bear think twice, but I think I'll just avoid encounters. . . . .

Joanne, I've been at this for decades. Check back on the blog tomorrow (or any time after that) for my thoughts on equipment, in response to your comment. . . .

Deb Robson

Yep. I don't believe any Colorado weather I'm not looking directly at.


Yes, that photo does crack me up. Talk about contrast!

So glad you found a getaway. I need to work somewhere other than my house this week, I find too many distractions here. Sometimes that is not an issue. I'm getting a lot done but not necessarily in order of priority.

Eventually it will all get done. A retreat sounds wonderful.
