The last couple of weeks have been pretty busy and, in some ways, stressful, so it was nice to get out of the city for awhile. I spent the weekend at a cabin with my family and though we had a lot of people and a lot of dogs, it was still a relaxing getaway. Some members of my family were more ambitious than I was and got out to canoe around the lake each day but I was content to spend my time inside away from the bugs.
I was able to write a little bit and I read a lot. I finished reading Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz and couldn’t put down Insomnia by J.R. Johansson. I also got to spend a lot of time with my niece, who had her nose in a book all weekend, too. I got her the first four books of the Babysitter’s Club series for her birthday and she brought them along. Remind me to ask her who her favorite characters are the next time that I see her.
They already had a fire going when I arrived on Thursday. I found out that my sister makes the best s’mores. (I, however, do not. I tend to forget about the marshmallow until it burns.)
