My body let it be known that it was time for some rest. I enjoy projects but my arthritic hands, bursitis shoulder, and decaying knees not so much. So this past weekend:
I took my first swim in the lake. Truthfully, with all the cold rain we’ve had, the lake has been pretty chilly, but swim I did. Not very far and very close to the shoreline, just in case. I will need build up my endurance over time.
Beaner and a friend joined us for an easy, no stress BBQ that included farmstand, just picked corn on the cob. Ultra sweet with butter running down my chin. Yum.
Took a quiet, easy kayak trip around the lake surveying the new construction. I tried to join a flock of geese but they would have no part of me.

Sat in my Adirondack chair and read an entire book - Little Big Lies - cover to cover. An entertaining book with some very important messages about domestic abuse. I am a pretty slow reader but this was a page turner.
I did stain the part of the reconstructed deck because, well, it’s just not a weekend at the lake without getting something done.
But I balanced that with a nap in my favorite hammock.
Fresh air. Great summer food. Being in and on the water. Naps in a hammock. Life is Good.
