Cottage Day

What awesome weather to be at the cottage! I brought Rae & Jo up for the day...actually we got there late last night. This morning Grandma Jean watched the girls while I vented a new bathroom fan at her cottage (btw - it doesn't have the easiest attic to move around and work in...a little swearing took place there this morning). She had to leave around noon to go to work, so the girls and I went back to our cottage and enjoyed the awesome weather. We took the paddle boat out to the sandbar/island. Yes, there is now a small, sandy island on Big Newton Lake...its been a dry year with horrendously low water levels. The sandbar is massive though, and lots of fun to go swimming at with the kids. There are some rocky sections, but lots of sandy areas with shallow water to run and play in. Jen had supper ready when we got home to Seymour - I'm so grateful to have such a great wife!

Side Note: I'm listening to a book on CD, Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku - highly recommended if you are interested in what kinds of concepts and possibilities physics is currently tackling. He does a great job explaining extremely advanced concepts in a way that can be easily understood without years and years of graduate school.

Gratitude - I am grateful for the perfect home we are creating and finding ourselves to be in. The house is amazing, the town is great and full of friendly people, neighbors, wildlife...everything is surrounding us with wonderful energy!
