Today I intended to get out to the botanical gardens and even got up a little early to be sure I went. Well unfortunately I didn’t make it and the kids really were not that upset over it considering a friend came over and asked them to go swimming. They were really excited about that so no problem. Knowing my haircut was scheduled for 2:00 I kinda sorta thought it wouldn’t happen anyway but that’s not the thing that stopped me. Pancakes were a success. And by success I mean they were a little burnt just the way I always make them, not that I do it on purpose but those are my kitchen skills.
The past couple days I’ve been obsessing over where to stay for our vacation coming up in August. You would think there would be plenty of places available with the economy, which there are, but not the kind of place I have in mind. Wanting something a little rustic but with some modern conveniences, on the lake and affordable seems almost impossible. Finally after looking at a ridiculous number of listing I have found one right onCrystal Lake, near Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, that almost fits my vision perfectly. It’s a little bigger than we need but for the price I could not pass it up. This is going to be a much needed get away from the daily grind.
