Rick's at a bike race. so I spent the weekend at the lake with the Gypster. No mice. At least, none I saw!
It's a much quieter weekend than the week of the fourth -- not too many boats and most are relatively quiet. I confess, I love our sunsets.
This was a particularly beautiful one -- deep oranges and pinks in the sky.
It's the stillness of the lake I love most. Interesting, because as a kid I remember all too clearly how loud we were! We made a good deal of noise, running around the beach, splashing in the water and hopping into the boat to go skiing or bombing around any chance we had. We'd ski all day, stopping only for snacks or when we ran out of gas.
On this weekend, I have done lots of cards -- I'll share them soon (still haven't shared the others yet!). And read a book you can learn about here on Chopsticks and String. I hit town where the Alpenfest was taking place, took a quick look at the crapht show and do some photos of the rides (that's another post!) and raptly watch the Tour de France.
I love this quiet time -- it gives me a chance to regroup from rather a lot of personal and professional stress lately. I don't feel compelled to do chores, tidy up, work on the basement, do laundry. So, I relax. I truly relax. I don't do that enough.
Life is good.
