Full Days, Peaceful Nights

June whizzed by in a flurry of activity.  In the midst of it all, there was time for reading (just finished The Journal Keeper by Phyllis Theroux), get-togethers with friends and a myriad of projects from gardening to painting animal panels for our pontoon boat.

My family came to visit for the 4th of July weekend and I worked feverishly to get the panels done for the boat parade.  Our theme this year was a zoo or wild animal park.  Once started, they moved along and I like how they came out.  When we rode around the lake, the kids on shore loved the cartoonish giraffe, elephants, monkey and other animals.  Just the reaction I had hoped for.  It was so much fun!  The parties at the cabanas were great - lots of good food and music - the band was rocking!  Two nights of spectacular fireworks viewed from the boat and the shore enchanted us and a lobster feast on Sunday had us savoring every butter-drenched morsel.

It is quiet again and I wandered the house this morning, picking up pillows and linens in our living room/weekend dorm and washed two big loads of towels. I wish they were still all here so we could do it again.
