Time Away

This past week I rented a cabin at camp. It was the first time I have been at camp in January. I loved seeing how people embrace winter by snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice fishing. I can now say that I have walked on water, at least camp water! I love seeing the icicles on the buildings and walking in the deep snow.

A teacher friend, Sheryl, came up for three days, Barbara came up for three days and Don came up for two days. I spent the week scrapbooking to my heart's content! I loved this time to relax, talk, and get something accomplished. On one of the days we took Aunt Eva out for lunch. It was a wonderful opportunity to spend some time with family we do not see very often. The older we get the more cherished these moments have become.

Looks like you had a great time.

It was such a relaxing time. I could use a few days like that every month.

I love fishing less so.

Gayle and I love jacksons in the winter! We went to 14 years worth of officers retreats at jacksons. Many hours of walks on the lake with visits to the ice fishing hut villages was an activity we always looked forward to.
It's a completely different atmosphere during the winter compared to the summer.
