The Wonders of Friends & Water

Lake 1 Two and a half days surrounded by water and friends was much needed and much enjoyed. It was peaceful, quiet, and filled with equally ridiculous and serious conversations. I learned more about my friends and feel our bond has grown.

There was food, fun, food, booze, booze, food, water, boats, jet-skis, booze, and tons of laughter. It was a much-needed break with like-minded people who wanted nothing more than to have a good time with friends.

I don’t even mind that I am a bit crispy. I glow a lovely shade of lobster and have strange tan lines in weird places, but will chuckle every time I see them.

It was an amazing sight sitting on the deck overlooking the dock at 6:30 in the morning. I had a cup of piping hot coffee and silence. I watched the ducks meander along looking for fish and multi-legged things to call breakfast. I was able to watch the sun crest over the rise of trees across the lake and bare witness to the world wake up around me. Beautiful. Being joined by friends carrying mugs of their own, chuckling off the jokes from the night before is a wonderful way to start the day. Look at that image- who wouldn’t love waking to that sight?

Now I must recover from the events of the weekend. As amazing as it was I must now do laundry, put things away, rub lotion on the screaming skin of my shoulders and try and stop the swaying my body still insists on doing. I still haven’t gotten my sea-legs. I’m sitting here at my desk swaying like I am still on the dock. A bit unnerving, but that too shall pass.

Tomorrow is a new day with new ideas and memories and those of this weekend will be tucked away in my scrapbook of a mind and trotted out whenever I want to reminisce about a great weekend I had with amazing friends and a spectacular view.

Thank you, Pat and Bill, for allowing us to invade your lovely lake home. I plan on doing it again whenever you will allow us back. LOL

As always friends…

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!
