One of these things was:
DEVO DOES A THING.
It didn't have to be work related. It didn't have to be serious. The goal was just: DEVO DOES A THING.
We finally settled on ... playing hooky and going to a beach.
FORTUNATELY, one of our lovely teammates lives in a gated lake community in CT, not too far from the office.Lake Waubeeka and hosting us. Not to mention leading the canoeing expedition.
Thank you, Mother Nature, for cooperating, not raining (though we need it), and for being comfortably non-humid and in the low 80s, with a slight breeze. (Sunscreen and shade were important. It was cool and cloudy enough to forget about the burn factor. Whoops.)
Thank you, ladies, for your wonderful array of snacks that overflowed on the picnic table and kept us munching for the entire time we were there. Yes, we bring gourmet salads to the beach to be dressed. We're fancy like that.
Thank you, Lake Waubeeka association members, for the CLEANEST Porta Potties I've ever used.
Thank you, Alex, for carpooling and carting my stuff around for an entire weekend. (I promised no photos.)
It was a wonderful day of hooky. Going back to the office tomorrow is going to be hard. This was my desk today. Sigh.
Lake Life = life goals
