Lake Life

We had a big storm here late yesterday afternoon - then the sun magically came out. AHHH!!!


And just another hour later we were blessed with this sunset. Again, ahhhh.....

We have been living here for about 2 months now. Previously, the longest amount of time we'd stayed here was about a week. It's been wonderful to have this lovely spot to enjoy while we wait to move back to the Auburn area. And we've been here at the perfect time of year. Most people around here are only weekenders - these are mostly vacation homes. And so while we've been here we've been almost the only ones on the street.

But now that the weather is warming up, the neighbors are appearing on weekends. Last night 4 cars appeared next door - not sure how many people, but I know there are at least 2 dogs. These neighbors are so nice! But our dogs bark more knowing that there are people and dogs over there. During the warmer weather, we enjoy the lake more during the weekdays - less boat traffic, less people. More quiet and peaceful.

And so now that the busy season is here, I'm glad that we're getting very close to moving into our new home. As much as I love it here, I think I am "laked out" for the time being. I can wait to be in town again so I can run out to the grocery store or run errands at a moment's notice. And I miss my Auburn friends!!!!

Do you have big plans this weekend? We have a quiet day today then we're off to Auburn tomorrow to help Daughter 1 move. Have a great day!


  1. Working on finishing a quilt that needs to be delivered next Saturday. You have been blessed to have such a lovely retreat.

  2. I lived in a lake community and I miss it so, we were glad when the weekenders left & had the lake and roads to ourselves. Enjoy it while you are there, the lake is so peaceful.

  3. It does look beautiful but your new house will be so exciting to make the new house a home!!
