Yes it’s peaceful here on the lake. You might even say it’s tranquil. Nothing to do but watch the weather move overhead.
Perhaps take a morning paddle.
Maybe toward evening take the ski boat out to the big waters to see the sunset.
If you go way out there you need to sit awhile and soak it all in.
But mostly you putter around close to the house, perhaps exploring just up the creek in the canoe.
And sometimes, if all your siblings and their significant others show up at the same time…well…you just need to goof off.
No matter what advanced age you achieve…when you’re all together you can still be kids.
And that’s what I’ve been up to this week after the 4th of July. Katie and I will be heading north soon. She says she likes the lake house and wouldn’t mind staying here the rest of the summer. But I remind her that we have camping (and weeding) to do and so she says she’s OK with going home too. As long as the northern house has an air conditioning vent for her to sleep on she’s not so particular.
Stay tuned as our adventure continues.
