We embark on a family vacation tomorrow! Even the adult kids get to join us this time. Where we’re headed, writing is easy. The words just flow. I will put some work in on the book. I may even still blog. I’ll just be doing it from the beach instead of a leather recliner. It’s not work if you love what you do. If I don’t check in before Friday, Happy 4th of July!
So the letter “X” fell on my 40th birthday. I was tempted to post nothing but pictures of this date from different calendars all crossed out with giant “X”s. However, I’m not THAT mad about it. Besides, it was a lot more fun to write about my favorite place on planet Earth, my Xanadu, the cottage. My Dad has this amazing escape on a lake up north. There are no motors allowed on the lake. It is quiet. There is no cell phone reception. It is peaceful. We are surrounded by hills and trees. It is beautiful. We have fires and roast marshmallows. It is entertaining. When the silence needs to be broken, we ride ATVs or do some target practice. It is utopia.
Pure crisp air
Placid blue waters
Escape to serenity
It is here that I am found
When life goes astray
The beach house rules are easy to follow, and contain a few “x”s.
