Lake Clear

Yesterday, Ashley called to say they were going to Lake Clear for the afternoon and did we want to go along. We had had a supremely laid back (ok, totally lazy) morning, our fridge was bare, and our house a mess, so I said no. We had to get some things done. And then, as I sat down at the computer to check my email and read a news article, I suddenly realized the absurdity of it. We needed to go to Lake Clear. So we whizzed around and left a few minutes later. And it was a lovely day.

Still, that means our fridge is still bare and our house is still a mess. So today had better be a day of doing. Or else. My organizational scheme for fall depends on a clean house a little. Must. work. hard. today.

Lake Clear. Sigh. I love huge pine trees framing things.

Gilbert has to stick his head under water first thing. He loves it.

Ikea bowls are actually very good little shovels. Better than the typical little sand shovel. Clever Ashley brought them along.

This makes me laugh

looks like you had a perfect day. There was a little girl who just loved Pippy at Malcom that looked a lot like Orianna.
