Not a lot to share with y’all today because we are super busy opening up the lake cottage this weekend. It’s the first time we’ve been up here since late September and although we have sticks to pick up in the yard and the place is dusty and needs a serious vacuuming, all in all, things weathered winter very well without us.
There’s a particular scent that always pervades the first weekend of being at the lake–it’s a mixture citronella and watermelon candles, mothballs (to keep the critters away) and pink antifreeze, bleach and a slight mustiness that means you’re at the lake. This year, it hit us as soon as we opened the front door. We both inhaled deeply and grinned at each other and said, in unison, “We’re at the lake!”
It’s pouring rain right now, so a trip down to the water isn’t going to happen just yet, but we get to see lake buddy Moe, which more than makes up for the crappy weather. That’s it for today, mes amies… I promise a real snippet next week! In the meantime, stay well, stay safe, and most of all, stay grateful!
