But DH is stable, and hopefully will come home soon to recuperate.
After a day of craziness, I am ready to lounge on the couch, and reminisce about the loveliness that is Maine in August.
I think that all winter I will be able to pull these pictures up, and feel good all over again.
I am trying to keep some of the serenity I found on 'Golden Pond'.
My kayaks got a workout, every day, several times a day. The pond was quiet, and beautiful. The water was warm and clean. The smell of the pines, the sound of the water on the shore, the creak of the dock. The warmth of the sun. A slight breeze.
Are ya' with me??
Little girls playing, laughing.
Loons who entertained us, and who lulled us to sleep with their song.....
I only took my camera with the new lens out in the kayak ONCE. It was just too nerve wracking.
I was rewarded though, with this shot.
Now you get to see how really UNDYED my hair is. Ha!!!
I look so concerned, don't I?
I have to have white hair.....look at the size of my grandson.
Sometimes we just paddled out to the middle of the pond, and sat.
The absence of noise was incredible.
We were all transported away from the daily grind. There was just no place for it here.
And spending time together is what memories are made of.
I think someday my grandchildren will remember going to Maine with their Mimi.
Their 'crazy Mimi'.
As long as we all felt this "look of wonder", for even a little while.......that's all that matters.
Thank you friends, for all your kind words of support, and encouragement, and for your prayers.
It really means so much.
