Ahhh… That is the sound of me relaxing 😀 For the past day and a half I have been able to get away from the city and work to escape to our cottage up in Michigan.
It’s been so nice to just kinda take a break from the hustle and bustle that has been my life for the past couple of weeks. Things have been kinda crazy while getting Kristin moved home from her summer school dorm and then now she is going to be moving back to our dorm for the full school year on Monday! It’s kinda stupid that she couldn’t just move into her other room and just put her stuff there, but if she did that, Housing wanted to charge her $35/night! What kind of craziness is that?! 😛
But up here, it has been nice to just relax and get up when I want to, not have to worry about work, and just enjoy my time. It’s been an awful long time since I have been really able to come up here and spend some real time (more than a day trip) here. I had forgotten about the peace and quiet it brings.
Things have been relatively relaxed, but Kristin and I (she’s up here with me too) have been able to go out and about and do some things. Yesterday morning, we went out for breakfast to an old pancake shop that we used to go to years ago to see if they still carried their tasty pancakes, and they did indeed! We both got a thin crepe-like pancake that filled our plate! and, boy, was it tasty!!
After doing some sightseeing (some unintentional due to wrong turns), we had come back and relaxed by taking a nap. (Food coma happens to the best of us, haha.) Later, we fought the engine to get started, but once we got it going, we were able to go for a nice lap around the lake before it got too cold. After coming back from the boat ride, we made some yummy garlic mashed potatoes to help us warm up from the belly-out 🙂
As we were warming up, Kristin and I decided to play some card games (Phase 10 and Uno) for a couple of hours. The end of Phase 10 came and we didn’t really come up with a clear winner! How does that happen? We both finished the last Phase and had the exact same number of points! CRAZY! Then I proceeded to whoop Kristin’s butt at Uno 😉
This morning has just been get up when we feel like it -I slept in until 9:30! I was so excited- yes, I know, it’s sad that I get excited about sleeping in until 9:30. Kristin went for a run, and now we are just chillaxing until my aunt and uncle and the dogs come up to the house to join us!
Maybe I will get to posting some pictures of the cove when I get everything hooked up from the camera…
Lunch time! OM NOM NOM NOMS
