We have liftoff!

And….the laptop is working again!  Hallelujah!!

Weekend Workouts:  a weekend of cottaging, beach-walking, water skiing, eating chips, drinking wine and campfiring!  Paradise.

Workout today:  30 min. walk at lunch, 90 min. cleaning the car.

So, the laptop is fixed – 15 trojans!  It’s now purring like a Lamborghini.

And the camera syncs again too.

Our family gathered this weekend at Younger Sis and Bro-In-Law’s cottage.  We grew up as cottage kids – wild little beach savages, really.  It was an idyllic way to spend every summer….and a blessing for us kids because our home life in the winter was not that great.  In the summer, we swam, skied, canoed, and ran free from sunup to sundown.

Friday night cocktails on the beach….BIL is a fabulous fellow.  See the look on her face?  Younger Sis thinks so too.

So, when we gather at a cottage, it feels like coming home.  There was wine, great food, and lots of girl chat.  Thank heavens BIL is happy to putter and do his own thing because there was a lot of talk about pedicures and bathing suit shopping!

Relaxing on the front porch.

My young niece Sports Girl was anxious to try water skiing, even though the weekend was chilly and the water was frigid.  She made it up on the 5th try.  Another generation of skiers!!

Dry land training by BIL.First try….

5th try.  She’s up!

The pooches didn’t always get along but they were united in stalking the chipmunk in the woodpile. You can see Tippy’s white tipped tail in the background.

Sisters.

Sunsets are stunning on the river.

Well, two months until my birthday.  The next 8 weeks are going to be a study in how to fully enjoy the last days of being 49.  What will 50 feel like I wonder…..?
