Home From the Hills...

    We returned from Auburn, NY where we spent 6 wonderful days on Owasco Lake.  We went to my 50th H.S. reunion last Saturday eve and had a wonderful time.  My husband just about grew up on the Lake as his Dad rented a spot along the West Shore where they had a little shelter, a deck with a roof over and a dock.  He and his brother and sisters spent every summer there swimming, boating and fishing.  Even the family dog went.  So it was like going home...       
    Courtesy of our dearest old friends and their daughter who owns a lake house on the East shore, we were able to have 6 glorious days there!  This was wonderful for my hubby as family and friends could visit him there and he did not have to run around at all.  He could go upstairs and rest quietly with a view of the lake from the bed!  He did very well and even took photos at my class reunion so that I have something to treasure for the rest of my life. 
    Details of the reunion are on my TWO HAPPY site: .    Below is the picture story of our precious lake visit.  Hubby returned to chemotherapy on Thursday and has spent most of his time in bed since.  It is a shock to the body after having time off and while we are used to the routine, it hurts none-the-less to see him suffering.  After a couple of treatments, he will do better....we pray.
Every evening we saw a beautiful sunset!  How Blessed we were!  The lake water lapping gently at the shore and the sound of peepers filling the night air.  A campfire at dark and I whispered to my spouse, "I think we're in Heaven".

A crackling fire and the afterglow of burning embers....

Each night the Canadian Geese would gather from every direction and talk to one another until they were all of one mind and then they headed to the foot of the Lake where they would stay overnight in a large communal group.  Nature is so neat!

The view in the daytime was gorgeous too and even the one rainy day we had was a joy!

And of course there were fish to catch like this Rock Bass and Perch but we always catch and release.

All in All it was a wonderful rest for Hubby and for me.  Good friends, family, Blue Sky and beautiful Owasco Lake....A little piece of Heaven for sure!

Thanks for visiting and please visit my other sites.  The links are in the sidebar.

Hi Kerrie,
Thanks for the visit and comments, also a big thank you for getting my book. I sold quite a few here in the UK but not abroad as far as I know.
In the fall I hope to start compiling another book......well I was thinking about it as I have written many since the other went to press.
Once again many thanks it made my day.

Kerrie, I just had to pop over and tell you how much I appreciate having you as a follower. You leave such gracious comments and are always encouraging. So I want to say "Thank you."

Just a thought...I fish for bluegill and never "catch and release" although I eat all I catch and quit when I have caught a mess. I believe "catch and release" is a good thing on some spieces.

I follow Jesus's example of catch and eat...only I haven't mastered the miricle thing yet...feeding 5,000 with just two little

Kerrie, it does sound heavenly. I am so glad you both had this time.

I was wondering if Bill had resumed the chemo. I can imagine how hard this is for both of you.

You remain in my prayers.
