easy for me.

After announcing he is going to take Mr. C for a boat ride and that I can have a break, Mr. K is all smiles upon hearing me reply with “can I come too?” Looking back from the nice seat offered to me I see Mr. K happily sitting on the floor of the canoe [...]

in and out.

How exciting! A moving truck in our driveway. And these people I love moving in. Having one week to prepare for their stay we hauled, and lugged, and threw, and goodwilled our way to creating some space. I recall our first conversation: ”So-ahhh.

almost there.

The drive into the camp. I want to say “what does it mean?” but I will spare you. Truly it is one of my favorite parts of entering my bro and sis in laws home. After driving and driving, you bump along this gravel road, over a hill to this vast and wide space. My [...]
