The beautiful weather has continued on the Island throughout the weekend. I just love it when we can open all our windows, upstairs and downstairs, and let the breezes off the Great Lakes blow through the condo during the day. At night – would you believe it – it’s still a little too cool to leave all the windows open, but leaving our French doors in the bedroom open – and the fan going – creates a perfect sleeping climate.
In case you’re wondering what’s happening on selling the condo . . . . . nothing. That’s good news and bad news. Good, because it’s been such a great summer up here so far, and bad because our next little “life adventure” depends solely on selling one of our two nests. Preferably both. But hey, we haven’t even been here half the summer yet. And as Ted and I both know, someone looking to purchase real estate on Mackinac Island has to fall completely in love with this magical place – like we did. And then they have to decide they just can’t live another minute without having something to call their very own right here in the middle of Lake Huron – like we did. It doesn’t happen that often – but it does happen. So we wait. And that’s ok.
Larry and Angela left on Saturday morning to return home to Atlanta, They used Friday to go up and see the Soo Locks, then drove into Canada for a few hours.
Mike Forrester, who visits the Island with his family at least once a year, and who produced the live streaming video of the Lilac Festival Parade this year, posted on his blog how he put together that live feed from a Lilac Tree porch. Totally awesome! Read it here: http://www.mackinacislandblog.com/profiles/blogs/streaming-the-lilac-festival-grand-parade
That’s all I’ve got tonight y’all. It’s been kind of nice not having a lot on the schedule for a week, but all that ends tomorrow. Here’s the schedule:
- Monday: Work at Stuart House and check out the marina for boats.
- Tuesday: A sweet little project working with a reader’s daughter on her senior pictures – with the help of some kind Island folks.
- Wednesday: Off-island. Bear to groomers and Maddie to doggie day-care while Ted and I go to Traverse City shopping – just for the fun of it!
- Thursday: I’m speaking again at the Men’s Breakfast at the Yacht Club – this time on Pet Therapy, and Bear will become the first dog allowed in the Yacht Club!
- Friday: Rest???
I think there will be some neat photo opps during the coming days, and of course, I will be sharing them with all of you!
Hope everyone’s week is great! God bless.
