The sun has just fallen below the horizon line at Four Season’s Lakefront –the left over remnants of light are sparkling across the water like shards of broken glass. A brood of Mallards fly in V formation not more than a foot above the surface of the lake and life, as you had known it only seven minutes earlier, looks quite spectacularly different. Your plans for this evening don’t have you venturing far from the fireplace and the warmth of a comfortable couch. You’ve brought with you the entire first season of 24 as well as a handful of books you’ve been yearning to get through. Already this weekend is turning... out to be better than you had anticipated. A friend offers to make you a decaf cappuccino from the kitchen as the beginning of dinner and the succulent aromas of a well-prepared mirepoix sizzles from the stove top. The plan is fresh bread, room temperature butter and a warm and pleasing soup made with Kabochi squash as a starter – where you’ll go from there is anyone’s guess. Tomorrow, the outdoor adventure of everything life has to offer will commence the moment your eyelids decide that its time, but for tonight it’s just you and this breathtaking mountain villa….what a lucky duck you are.
