sunshine and summertime!

School’s officially out ’round these parts. Part of me is a little sad because now I have to find something constructive for my kids to do while I’m at work. Oh well, that’s why they pay me the big bucks to be the momma, I guess.

We’re leaving on Thursday forMountain Harbor on Lake Ouachita. The next five days will go something like this.

Get out of bed. Eat bacon, biscuits and gravy, eggs and coffee.
Pack food for lunch.
Pack Ice Chest. (make sure there are some beverages suitable for kids.)
Go to lake and sit on Pontoon boat for 6 hours.
Eat cheese dip, guacamole, and salsa for 6 hours.
Go back to house.
Eat dinner.
Write for a couple of hours.
Play card games til Midnight.
Go to bed.

Next verse same as the first….

I can’t wait.

I’ll post pics when I get back.

  1. I’m not sure how sarcastic you are being with “can’t wait.” I mean, the agenda sounds pretty relaxing…but I’d go nuts stuck on a boat for six hours every day. (Maybe one of the days you could get them to leave w/out you, and you could lay ’round camp and write/hike/nap/watch birds?) Have fun, no matter what.


  2. “stuck on a boat”STUCK?I assure you, there wasn’t an ounce of sarcasm in my blog. I LOVE going to the lake, doing nothing. LOVE IT. I’ll probably go for a walk in the mornings and do some hiking when we pull up to an island for lunch. But there is no way I’ll go nuts relaxing on the boat, jumping into the lake, hanging out…Sigh. It’s a dream.
