Sunday for the Books


I hope you all had a great weekend. We did end up at the lake, got there mid morning, and had a couple circles around the lake in the pontoon while DH took pictures of the cabin that will be coming down next week. The kids all want nice prints of the cabin.  Before we went out, he walked around and took pictures of each side.His parents built it when he was about three years old, so 50+ years of memories will be coming down, but a new place to build new ones. DD2 "swam the lake", the annual tradition.  I guess a bunch of others did 4th of July weekend, but we had left early to go to a party. I didn't do the whole lake, but jumped in on the other side and swam back with her. What a work out. With the 90+ temps the last week, the water was perfect. 

After the swim, we were pretty hungry. With my cooking and baking day, I was ready for an easy lunch. DH grilled some hotdogs and we had a tuna macaroni salad, cucumber salad, ranch tortilla chips, and oatmeal cookies as well.  I cleaned up lunch and we all relaxed a bit reading. We were the only ones there at both cabins, so it was so peaceful. We decided to take one more good long swim before heading back. Our niece and boyfriend came about that time, beer in hand, having the same idea that it would be a calm and relaxing spot. She swam with DD and I for a while, until we said our goodbyes and left them to enjoy the rest of the afternoon to themselves. 

Back in town DD wanted to have another go at driving so she chauffeured me for a change. a stop a the dollar store for a couple greeting cards, paper towels, more hair bands (DD and I both go through these in volumes), and zip lock  gallon size bags for my coworker for her swiss chard and kale picking. She drove us to Target to take a look to see if they were starting to clearance out any swim suits; they're not, and I took a look at the cameras.  The one I had my eye on at $149 was back to $299.  I wonder if perhaps n line it might be lower? We left buying nothing.  Let me repeat that. We left Target, the store I  refer to as the $100 Dollar Store, not buying a thing. 

Some more driving and we ended up downtown by the river, and had a nice stroll, counting the number of people playing Pokeman Go.  We don't need to play it as we are more amused seeing others wander in small packs or individuals capturing characters on a screen. Hey, folks are out walking at least. DH is watching t.v., DD is on the porch in her favorite spot reading again, and I've got a load of laundry going, and will start the dishwasher before going to bed. Money tiff aside, it was a good weekend. If you're a blogger, I hope to catch up with you on yours. If not, drop me a comment and share your best weekend happenings. Summer is half over-live it up I say.

    1. I could have done without the basement flooding again with all the water form Saturday, but hay, I guess I am a water person. Did you end up with a poolful.

  2. I'm glad that you had a nice time at the cabin. I have shingles at the moment so feel pretty wiped out. I spent part of Saturday in my 'new' reclining chair at the allotment. It was lovely to be in the fresh air but frustrating that I wasn't able to do anything to help J.

    1. Oh no, Scarlett. Take care of yourself. I've avoided them, but my 25 year old daughter has had flare ups several, times along her should line down under her arm causing a lot of discomfort. I'm glad your allotment provides you so much joy.
