We've just returned from a week "at the lake"...Kerr Lake, NC. What a blessing to have in-laws who welcome us to share their summer home when we can. There is nothing more relaxing than no schedule... other than to swim, boat, tube, waterski...to sit on the shore and watch the others do all these things...to read, knit, and to nap when the impulse hits.
My bliss: The smell of sunscreen. The lake in its many moods, sometimes smooth as glass, sometimes choppy and rough. More bluebirds than I have ever seen in one place. Kids laughter, over and over. Bliss, pure bliss.
Here's a glimpse of us in one of our favorite summer places.
