What a week this has been! We’ve been so busy I’m in shock that it’s Friday already!
Today was no different. I had lunch with friends downtown, visited Ted at the Visitor’s Center on his first day of volunteer work for the Mackinac Historic State Parks, took a long walk with Jill, Bear and Maddie late in the afternoon, and cooked dinner (a good old Southern meal of country fried steak, rice and gravy, and fresh green beans from Doud’s). Now it’s almost 8 o’clock, and the sun is nowhere close to setting. Up here, the sky doesn’t finally grow dark until almost 11 p.m., and you’d really forget it’s time for bed if you weren’t so tired from being in constant motion all day. It’s a great way to feel at the end of the day – not stressed out, not emotionally drained – just physically tired and ready for a good night’s sleep. No meds necessary, thank you very much.
To close out the week, I’m just going to share some random photos I’ve taken over the last few days that didn’t fit in anywhere else. Hope you enjoy!
Another busy weekend coming up, and next week our first company of the season arrives – Cathie and Charlie from New Orleans. We are so excited that they are returning this year!
Have a wonderful weekend, whatever your plans, and I hope you pop back in here Saturday and Sunday morning for a picture or two. God bless.
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening translated through you into action. Because there is only one you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good or valuable it is nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.” . . .
