Several people asked me what I did over the weekend, and when I said worked, they gave me that 'what? why?' look, and then said sorry. But then I told them it was out at Silver Falls, drinking wine, eating yummy food, staying in adorable little cabins and hiking the falls, they asked me how they could get a job where I worked. I love that!
On Saturday I trekked out to an area in Oregon just east of Salem, up rolling hills to the Silver Falls Conference Center to hold a retreat for my hard-core volunteers that I head up to make plans for what they wanted to work on this year.
In the dining hall we made plans for world domination by the fire in the huge fire place, drinking wine and eating yummy food.
The next day, after sleeping in and having a late breakfast, we took a hike down to the water falls. So full right now because of recent snow, we enjoyed hiking behind one of the falls and feeling the spray hit us.
How awesome (in the true sense of the word) is that?
And, to top it off, I will be visiting the area again next week for another retreat for work. Hard knock life for me.
