It was 85% meetings, and the rest involved adult beverages, and board games / cards / dominoes / fire pit. The location is run by the YMCA, no technology (yes electricity) and eco friendly. When we had breaks we would get outside and explore (others played soccer, threw a football around, or frisbee golf).
I didn't sleep well - no, it wasn't vodka's fault - but rather, due to my light sleeping nature and snoring roommates. I always left my phone in my room, so I didn't snap pictures of meals. Basically, instant oatmeal and fruit in the morning - salad, chips, sandwich or veggie burger for the other meals. A little too much snacking on popcorn and mixed nuts.
Close to forty people gathered in the "main house" (many of us were up the road in a lodge / dorm style building), and this (above) was our view in the great room during the meetings .
I enjoyed getting to know all of the new staff and catching up with everyone else. Remy hung out with my parents and their dog, but I'm happy to have him home with me again! After picking him up today, I stopped by Whole Foods to grab a late lunch:
Vietnamese Noodle & Tofu Salad with Peanut Sauce.
One of my colleagues made us "beverage cups" from an idea she saw on Pinterest:
Yes, the aforementioned vodka (and flavored San Pellegrino) lived here a few times.
I'd been thinking about this kale and potato salad for a while, so I made it happen tonight for dinner:
Boiled potatoes, kale, dressing: Tofutti cream cheese with garlic powder and Italian Seasoning.
I hope the week has been treating you well! I can't wait to sleep in my bed . . . goodnight! ;)
