WELL HELLO THERE, FRIEND
This was my view for the past few days. I could get used to floating on the water, watching the sun rise and fall each day (although I'm not going to lie and say that I saw it much of its ascent).
Sorry for the absence around here. It's one of those tricky blogger things where I felt guilty about not posting, but then quickly laughed at myself at how ridiculous that sounds. Work was busy, and I just couldn't bring myself to stare at the computer a minute longer than I had to.
I thought about posting a quick "Hey there! If you haven't noticed, I'm not here" post, but decided against it. You don't need a reminder that I'm not here, even though it would have given me some sense of false satisfaction that I had said something.
Guilt is a crazy thing and something I've combatted against my whole life. This place is a sense of refuge for me, though, and shouldn't be seen as another burden.
So anyhoo, as you probably guessed by the picture above, we went to the lake this weekend. It was a quick getaway, but a nice respite from the normal workaday hustle and bustle.
We got our hair whipped around by the wind as we sailed across the water, jumped in ice cold springs, ate too many chips, and shared a ridiculously large margarita with our fellow passengers (the largest margarita on the lake, in fact).
I also got to try stand up paddle boarding, which Devon taught me is referred to as SUPping (did I spell that right?) At least I have cool friends that know the lingo for stuff. All I know is that I saw Jennifer Aniston doing it in a magazine and thought that if that's something she does to get her sculpted arms, then I want to try it.
I would love to do more if I lived by any body of water. Maybe someday..
It was fun rushing through the water in a speed boat, but if I was in the market for a boat, I think I'd go for a sailboat. I'd like to cruise a little more and ride the wind wherever its going.
And then we had to finish the weekend off right...
with some frozen custard. What is it about being in the water and out in the sun all day that makes you ravenous for anything salty and sweet? Well, we got our junk food fix, that's for sure.
It was nice to come home, though, and get to see Maisy Mae and sleep in my own bed. I'm such a homebody that I wouldn't mind a staycation where we just stay at home for a week. There are always so many fun projects on my mind that I never seem to find time to do that it would be nice to have countless hours to piddle around instead of trying to cram everything into a weekend. It sure would be cheap, too. Wade does make the best margarita around, in my opinion, so at least we have that covered.
Did you have a good weekend? For you fellow bloggers, do you ever feel guilty about not posting a lot during the week? We all need a summer vacation, right?
