Hello my friends and welcome! Here I am. Home again. Responsiblities called me and so here I am. There was laundry to be done. Groceries to buy. Today was my day to take dinner to friends from church who are struggling with a cancer diagnoses, surgery and now recovery. The husband has always loved my homemade chicken and noodles so, for the second time in a week I made a big batch of them.
Tomorrow I have errands to run and packing to do and we have Bible study here tomorrow night. Busy, busy, busy. Chloe and I came home from the lake this morning. I practically had to pry her into the car. Her eyes were so sad. She loves the lake as much as I do. Yesterday I was out walking around the big garden plot with her and the three resort maintenance guys and the manager came down the road in their golf carts just to see Chloe after the long winter. They all love Chloe and bring her treats and lots of petting. They all tell us all the time what a great dog she is.
The park doesn't officially open until May 1. Our area is the only one with running water year round, the other wells are shut off in the winter so it has only been us and two other couples there so far this year. Chloe and I stayed Sunday and Monday night by ourselves as Hubby had meetings late and it didn't make sense to drive out just to go to bed and then get up for work but he joined us last night and we had a very peaceful evening and night.
The paddle boats are waiting for the docks to be put out and people to take them out for a ride in the lake.
The picnic tables are still stacked up and waiting for warm days and families at the beach.
The lake. My peaceful place.
Mossy covered trees. We still don't have any flowers blooming around Spokane because the evenings are still too cool-barely above freezing.
A pine growing out of a rock at waters edge.
Lots of granite rocks around the park...hence the name, Granite Point Resort.
I finished a baby sweater, hat and sock set for charity.
I didn't knit or crochet as much this week as usual. I did, however, read three books! I'm enjoying reading very much right now. I seem to go through stages where I read a lot and don't craft as much. I'm trying to tell myself that it's okay. Sometimes I feel guilty when I'm not doing as much as I think I should be, but then I remind myself that it's only me that puts these requirements onto myself. Does that even make sense?
This Friday Hubby and I are going to meet our son Jamie and our two grandbabies, Kyleigh and Caleb in Missoula, MT for the weekend. The hotel we're going to has a couple of pools and hot tub and we're really looking forward to spending the time with the kids. Jamies birthday was Monday and Kyleigh's is the 19th so it's a birthday celebration of sorts too.
I'm hoping to head back to the lake on Monday if the weather cooperates. Would you believe I got a bit of a sunburn yesterday while taking walks with Chloe?
Have a lovely rest of the week my friends. I appreciate each one of you. I am so happy that you take the time out of your busy lives to read this blog.
