Between difficulties with our car, cleaning at home, and going back to work a few weeks early, my summer is ending before I’m ready. I have no right to complain, though. Life is relatively good, and the summer fun I did have was wonderful and exciting! And rather than mope, I try my best to seize the day. Because my car, the only one with a roof rack, was in the shop for several weeks, we didn’t get to do much kayaking this year. Today, we changed that with a trip to nearby Hyde Lake.
My daughter hadn’t been here since she was a baby, so she was excited to explore a “new” landscape. We even saw a weasel while in our boat.
It turns out, time on a lake was just what I needed. I felt really stressed a few days ago, and I’m making some changes in life because of it. There’s been a lot of that in the air, I gather. Anyway, I plan to post a bit about that eventually, but today it was all about finding a slice of paradise. My husband and daughter were excited to head out with me for a little adventure near home. Where land, water, and sky meet, I felt rejuvenated.
I await autumn with open arms, but the stress of an increased workload comes along with all the apples, pumpkins, and spiced chai lattes. Make sure you get outside and reconnect with the people, and places, who mean a lot to you.
