"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

By the Lake

My Friend From The North Country (FFTNC) arrived yesterday shortly after the girls and I got here, she was bearing delicacies for our supper. We had a pleasant relaxing evening.

This morning we both enjoyed some fresh strawberries for breakfast. Not long after, she was stretched out on the sofa with Jewel & Ruth. I don't think those 2 cups of coffee she'd had were very effective!

We took our lunch down to the dock. In anticipation of an afternoon swim, I checked the water temperature: 77 degrees. Very swimmable!

Photo ops with the dogs.

Lake traffic.

We picked blueberries from the bush growing at the water's edge.

Ruth wandered up the hillside to devour huckleberries. Most of them aren't yet ripe but she seems not to care!

We came back up to the house to plan the wedding that will take place here a fortnight from tomorrow! We started on the porch but a wonderful rainstorm is passing over so we've moved into the sitting room. The rain on the roof sounds wonderful!

Not sure we're going to get that swim, after all. But the showers might blow over. Either way, we're happy!
