*we have officially named our boat (top left) "Not Penny's Boat" because what better name could a couple of die hard Lost fans give their damn boat? it only took us 5 years to come up with a name*
Off to the lake we went on Friday. The sun was shining, the water an amazingly perfect temperature for swimming. I swim a little then I have this floaty thing that I blow up and lay on. Heaven.
Surprisingly, we don't find a quiet spot. We go right to the party area where it's loud, fun, and feels like a true vacation. My brother hooked his itunes into the speakers and boom, we had our own loud music going. Super fun and relaxing.
Later we docked at our friend's house where there was food, drink, coffee, dessert and a prime view for fireworks on the lake. We finally made it back to the marina around 11 pm. The moonlight was our only guide. It was the kind of day where we were waterlogged and mad with laughter.
I did a walk around the yard to check on all of the flowers and the vegetable garden. Angie put down a lot of different seeds (I just let her do her thing without really paying much attention) and I see a LOT of baby cucumbers coming up! My tomatoes have finally come to life. The San Marzano's look small and plump and the Jersey Beefsteak are round. I'm can't wait for our first salad.
The roses have bloomed, the ones in front of the house where there isn't much sun. My dad and I planted the red one and then there is this tiny pink one I like to call Stinky McPinky that was planted by the previous owners and continues to bloom a couple of times through the summer.
Things are good. It feels like very much like summer and it is only the beginning. We have so much going on and I really want to feel it. Who am I kidding though? I'll be documenting the entire time with my camera.
We have an offer to spend time in a client's house on Cape Cod. I mean, come on. Summer 2015, here we go.
