Another work-free Friday
It's a Friday. It's hot out. The boss is out of town. We're bored. Marlene has a convertible. What to do, what to do... Since it IS Colorado and since it's basically against the law to stay inside when it's so nice outside (unless you're hungover and the sun we have like every day hurts your eyes) we decided to go for a drive. For those of you who know Colorado, this is a path and a river near Rollinsville. I'm from here, and I'm pretty sure I've never been there before. And probably couldn't find it again, seeing as I fell asleep on the way back. What? I worked hard for like three hours that morning. Reading everyone's blogs takes time and effort, you know.
Actually, the river is Beaver Creek. So yes, I guess it's a creek, and yes, I imagine it ends up somewhere up in the Vail/Beaver Creek area. This is all guesswork on my part. I guess I should know more about my own state, right? But in my defense, there are a lot of side roads and little towns and this is one of those places. Oh, and also, I was standing in the creek to take the rushing water picture, and it was kind of chilly, since it's all snow runoff. And I saw a hummingbird. It was cute.
So four hours and a nice sunburn later, I went back to work. If by work you mean "went upstairs, got my stuff and went home." Because as we've discussed before, I am quite possibly the Best. Employee. Ever. Seriously -- do the tank top, hat and sunglasses not scream "professional" to you? It was no wonder I had to go over to Sally & Joe's when I got home and lay on one of the chaise lounges on their back patio drinking wine. I have a hard life -- you can totally tell that by this REALLY PRETTY picture, right?
