Cottage time

We are off to visit friends for a week so I will not be writing for a while.  When I return I hope to have photos and stories to share.   Our friends’ cottage is on a lake which has run the same summer programs for decades.  My daughters’ friends have their swimming lessons off the same island as their mother did thirty years ago.  There are movie nights, games nights, luncheons and concerts in the same clubhouse.  We will go to church in the same chapel that my friend’s grandfather preached in many years ago.  Last year we were there on the weekend of the swim regatta and the children are looking forward to competing again this year.

Once we arrive at the village we park the car and are taken by boat to the cottage and go every where by boat.  It really is a most relaxing location.  So that’s what we will be doing: relaxing.   I hope you get a chance to do the same.

Quote for the day

Yesterday my dad sent me this:

Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.
Charles M. Schulz

We have become fairly good at dealing with the time difference. I don’t think we call people in the middle of the night. Years ago, one of my friends traveled to North America for two weeks and lost a day returning. It was her birthday!
