We went to the lake for a few days with Son and DIL. Had a great time, and the weather was gorgeous. The oppressive humidity finally went away, and it was downright cool.. almost cold. I loved it!
We went swimming the first day, and it was so refreshing and wonderful. After that it was a little too chilly for a swim. But reading on the deck under a quilt was fabulous. It is such a relaxing place! We all read books, relaxed, played Scrabble, took naps.. a perfect vacation.
It was really nice having Son and DIL along. They are such nice people! Son baked home-made bread twice! Yum! And the last day was Hubby's birthday so we had blueberry muffins in his honor.
I finished my "V" book - The Vagrants by Yiyun Li. There are a lot of unhappy characters in this book, and a lot of unhappy events occur. Despite that, it was a good read and very interesting story. It takes place in China in 1979 amidst political unrest and political crackdowns. I am reminded how valuable that First Amendment is that we enjoy: freedom of speech.
