* It's Tuesday, and I'm Confused *

Yep, I'm confused...but that's nothing new, is it?! The Ronald and I spent most of Easter weekend with wonderful friends who own a house at "The Lake." We came home last night, so today feels like Monday to me.


These pictures were taken last September, because I forgot my camera this time....Grrrr...This is a view from their back deck, surrounded by ancient trees, sun and shade, a variety of birds, and other critters....and in the background, The Lake! Only a few houses separate them from the calming lull and beauty of the water.

 

This is a view while riding in their pontoon boat. Although this weekend, the water was almost continually as smooth as glass....and not a cloud in the glorious blue sky!

Ahhhh, can you say Relaxing?



Tomorrow I'll be back with my review of Lois Roelof's memoir, Caring Lessons: A Nursing Professor's Journey of Faith and Self which I previewed HERE. If you missed that blog post, please click on the link and check it out. To be eligible to receive a free copy of Lois' book, just leave a comment on that blog post, and/or on this one. Two comments  =  two chances to win.

I'm thrilled to say that I read most of it while relaxing on a certain deck Sunday and Monday! I feel as if I know Lois so well and that I'm one of her friends. To find out more about Lois, if you haven't already, please go to her BLOG.


So, come back tomorrow. I'll announce the winner of the memoir on Thursday. For my quote of the day, I'm using a sentence I particularly loved from Lois' book:



* Also.... Welcome to my newest follower, Beautiful Dees. I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you! *
