my, my, my what a beautiful world
We're here on the North Shore of Minnesota, on Lake Superior, Gitchi Gummi. I'm in the condo right now listening to Colin Hay and feeling fine.
This is a mini vacation, a scouting trip of sorts with my parents who are in from Florida. We all have been on our best behaviour. D had to postpone at the last minute due to some shocking developments at his workplace. He'll be joining us tomorrow evening. My parents are settled in a condo a few doors down from me and the Little Lotus Bud. And I have the evening to myself. I love it. I can do what I want, listen to the music that I want, sit up all night reading if I want or just go to bed early.
I don't think I've ever been on the North Shore in the summertime. Sure I've been up here plenty to camp but never right on the Lake. I can't go to bed early. I have to absorb all the goodness and beauty around. The light was light until at least 10 pm. I can have all the window open and snuggle into bed later. But for now I want to just absorb, to soak in the glory that is summertime, the cool of the lakeshore air, the smell of a wood fire.
My, my, my what a beautiful world.
