I was without internet service for day 28 and day 29 of my NaBloPoMo challenge, so I’ll be posting a couple of days late, although I wrote this on the correct day, I promise.
The gals and I-my sis, her daughter, my daughters and the two grand kiddos, decided to skip the black Friday madness and rent a cabin not too far from home.
So here we are, nestled on the edge of a small lake in a little cabin, and we are taking it easy.
The lake covers seven acres, according to the owner, and its waters are blackish from the leaves that have fallen in and stained it with tannins. Kind of reminds me of the Black Lagoon.
A couple of caves are nearby that we are planning to explore tomorrow. I wish it were a bit warmer so we could spend more time on the nice deck that overlooks the water. Or paddle in one of the boats docked on the bank.
For now, though, we are snug and cozy indoors. The babies are sleeping, and I enjoyed reading a half-dozen Curious George stories to Clay before he went to sleep.
