Monday, Home from the lake

     We had such a nice time, even though it was never truly warm.  Hubs was able to fish with Schmills and Schmills caught two fish.  It was so cute.  This bright red haired little boy makes friends with everyone and is a joy to be around.  (Most of the time)

     I planned very simple meals to keep myself from over working.  Hubs and I were able to do a ride around the lake on our bikes and boy is that work.  I actually think it is more work than walking the lake.  It takes about 20 minutes to ride the round as apposed to 1.5 hours to walk it.  But I still felt that I worked harder riding the bike because of all the hills. 

     I read a couple of novels, and took naps and slept late.  It was lovely.  Wish we could have spent at least one more day.  The second day daughter and I rented a paddle boat and we spent an hour paddling out across the lake. It was fun and then later that evening we walked the lake, which is at least5 miles around.  I over did it on my right hip and had a hard time sleeping due to pain.  On the car ride home I had to take meds in order to sit.  It does not hurt  to walk, but to sit or sleep.  Weird?

    Hubs had a rehearsal last night with his quartet group and they have a wedding to play for this next weekend.  I have a ton of laundry to do and I hope to get hubs to help me clean up all the wood and scraps around the deck and chicken coop. I do have work to do in the shop but nothing pressing today.

     I am happy to say that the garden is starting to really produce. We will have green beans and zucchini and yellow squash and Armenian cucumbers for dinner tonight.  Also peppers and  eggplant should be ready by the end of the week.

     I need to re weed the garden and the flowers beds, it is crazy how fast the weeds grow.  I keep thinking if I keep weeding pretty soon there will be no weeds left, but that is not the case. They just sprout and head for the sun.

     So Hubs and I will spend some time in the yard today and I will run back and forth to the shop as needed.  I also will clean and organize the shop for the week.

     Do you have any plans for the week?  Other than to enjoy the summer?  Sorry about those of you that are having constant rain and flooding.  I feel for you.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
