My Facebook post yesterday: On Saturday, God said, "Let there be lake." So being a humble servant, I went to the lake. And all was well with my soul." That about sums it up...I am so in love with my lake life, and my cute little cabin, and the peace and serenity here. I am blessed. Just blessed.
The Murphy bed is about halfway up in the living room. Right now, it's a pain in the neck, but I know it will work. It's pretty cool, actually.We can actually sleep quite a few...the Murphy, we have a full in our bedroom, and my inlaws have donated a pretty cool sleeper couch for the living room. We also have a really comfortable recliner, and plan to get mattress sets for a couple of twin beds. Someday.
I've worked my tail off cleaning the rest of the house, although HUGE kudos go to Matthew for making the tub SHINE (now if he could only do that to the upstairs bathroom at home...). All of the shelves I can reach are lined. We actually have FOOD! And we have COOKED FOOD! Yes, very exciting indeed! We did arrive to a big almost-catastrophe. The fridge was warm. So, I played around with the settings, and now it's worked for two straight days.
Today, we had something so small town exciting happen. We were approached by a reporter from the local small town newspaper, who asked us if there was something special we fixed for fall dinners. Of course we talked about my vegetable soup! AND...I even gave the recipe...kind of. Matt, Michael and I got our pictures taken for the paper, too.
Tomorrow, the satellite company will come install TV. Now, don't think we're going all high tech on you...we are getting the most basic of channels...really just something to do in the late night.
The only thing I am missing before inviting people is...an appropriate journal. See, when you visit, I want you to write in the book, tell us about your visit, what you did (or didn't) do, how refreshed you felt, or even, "Hey, I was here to breathe, and thank you for that." I wish that was my clever idea, but it was Mom's. She had many journals that she used as guest books at her lake house. Those journals were perfect, and showed such a sweet, personal history of the house. I can't wait to see who comes for a visit, and how this amazing place affects their soul.
Now I'm wondering...who wants to be the first? We're waiting for you!
