I spent the weekend at the cabin at the lake. If you have not been there lately (or ever) you should go. The cost is not very much and the green, relaxing, watery sensation is extremely strong. It seems that there is always someone around to talk to, someone to paddle with, someone to spit up on you (hi, Baby Dean) and someone who knows what flower or bird or critter you are looking at (usually it's Mary who knows the birds and Adele who knows the flowers, but it can vary). There is typically too much food, all of it delicious, and old friends and new. Note to self: read your own old blog posts and you will see that you always say "I should go up more" when you come back. So go!
The only thing missing this weekend was Minh. How long should these veggies cook? Oh, if only Minh were here! Where do we keep that thing? Minh knows. And so it went, from Friday to Monday.
So, if you go, plan to go with Minh, and plan to have a fun time. I paddled a bit, walked a bit and snoozed a bit every day. What could be better?
