20|52 Workin’ for the Weekend? (May 13-20, 2012)
Sunday was Mother’s Day. I called my Mom and we visited about our upcoming genealogy trip. Since Kelsey and her boyfriend were at our lake place, I got to spend time with my daughter on Mother’s day and she cooked breakfast. The next day after work my son surprised me by visiting and took me out for dinner at Cafe Bella where we had a nice meal and visit.
After work on Friday Keith and I headed back down to the lake. I started my morning by walking the yard and noticed that our plum tree was loaded with plums!
Then the work began, first more yard work that included laying sod, cleaning our porches, painting, preparing the boat for the season and burning more of the wood piles We got up about 6 am and finally went to bed around 2:30 or 3:00 am because the burn pile was very slow to burn down to a safe level for us to go on inside for the evening. What a long, though productive, day!
Sunday morning we had a nice breakfast with fresh eggs & homemade plum jelly both from just down the street from us. It was all delicious!
Finally by mid-morning Sunday we had the first splash of the season when we put Moby Deck, our deck boat, in the lake. We enjoyed some time just touring the lake. We decided to get our name on the list for a slip at Buncombe Creek and they say it’s about a 4 year wait so maybe by the time we retire it will be our turn.
