"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Taking it Easy

My goodness, the girls have been busy. Many trips back and forth from the Lodge to the lake cottage and back, hosting a wedding, lots of long walks, some swimming, eating blueberries and huckleberries right off the bushes.

It's no wonder that they're in need of some quiet time.

Jewel is in resting mode on the back steps.

Ruth is pretty mellow, too.

They'd better make the most of this calm while they can. On Friday night a much anticipated visitor arrives from afar, one whom they see only once a year. Much more excitement and activity on the horizon!
