Time to go home
Friday, August 03, 2018
This morning we are packing it up and heading home after 10 days of dogsitting my BIL’s 14 year old baby. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with a dog again as it’s been several years since we had to put down our beloved Maggie.
The down side of this trip is they live in mid Michigan where there is really not much to do. BIL lives on a lake which sounds ideal but the lake looked murky and not conducive to swimming.
There was supposed to be a pontoon for us to use but it “suddenly had mechanical problems “.
I’m not so sure about those problems. I think just maybe he didn’t really want us using it.
So we walked the dog🐶,rode bikes 🚴♀️ & I went up & down the steep steps to the lake frequently. So in all honesty, I was more physically active than I would have been at home. That was a great upside to the trip.
This morning the lake is covered by a thick layer of fog🌫 for the first time. I will miss the tranquility of this place though. Each night as I lay in bed there were green twinkle laser lights lighting up the trees🌳 outside the bedroom window . I found that extremely soothing and very conducive to sleep.😴
One thing this trip did clarify for us is that when we move away from the city we do not want to be somewhere quite so isolated. Hubby especially doesn’t want that. I guess we’re just suburban people at heart.
Well I’ve got to get packing. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
