All in all, it was a great weekend. My Harley Stud and I packed up the dogs and off to my Dad’s place at the lake we went. The drive is about four hours give or take a trip to the restroom. D2 drove over from school. It was great to see her but she was not feeling well. She had those nasty little white spots on her tonsils and a fever but never fear, SUPERMOM arrived with antibiotics and she is on the mend now.

While D2 slept most of Monday away on the couch in a drug-induced coma, MHS and I helped my dad and Daisy take care of fallen tree courtesy of my old friend Tropical Storm Fay. (Man, I just can’t lose that chick.) While MHS used the chainsaw to cut the tree into manageable pieces, Daisy, Dad and I hauled them to the burn pile or the wood pile according to my father’s instructions. We worked hard for about four hours and felt pretty good about ourselves and all we accomplished. I’m pretty sure that the workout came close to if not exceeded the IRON BODIES class that I just can’t seem to get back to.

I don’t really have much more to say as I’m feeling a bit puny myself right now. Instead I will share with you the reason why I enjoy our time at the lake soooooo much.

It is so peaceful here. I just love it!

My photography skills are lacking to say the least but I think you can still get an idea of how beautiful it is. (I could live without the spiders that come as big as your fist though)

Beautiful and so peaceful looking.
I am so wanting to move to a location just like that.

That IS a beautiful place and I can see why you love it so much. We live on a lake and the spiders as big as your fist drive me insane. Believe me, that's a short trip. :)

That is beautiful and you got a good workout out of it too! Just so you know your post about the iron bodies workout inspired me to get off my ass and start working out again. I am just working out at home but man am I sore from it!

Glad you had a good weekend!

Bear-Come on down. We'd love to have you as a neighbor!

Midlife Slices - I know, right? Heaven on earth except for the bugs and spiders.

Smiles - Good for you. Glad I could be of service. Of course I'm missing it again today but there is always tomorrow. :-)

Simply beautiful! I just love lakes. My only wish is that the mosquitos didn't love me back so darn much!
