The summer season here at the lake has been filled with people coming and going.
The past weekend was no exception.
Two of the girls, and their families, came up to stay(Kelly, and Erin). My nephew Jeff, from Chicago, brought his family up for the weekend also.
Zoey, and Sadie(Erin and Tony's girls) had spent the week with us, so they were already here when people started to arrive.
Fishing, tubing, swimming, floating down the canal on tubes, playing in the sand, and riding the golf cart kept everyone busy...and eating...eating was always going on!!
However......The weekend is over.
Everyone went home.
The place is quiet once again.
The breeze is blowing in a cool summer rain.
As I stand over the kitchen sink, and look out the window, I miss seeing the kids running by.
No more hectic meal times.
The sound of laughter has subsided.
Today I hear the rain on the roof, and the wind in the trees.
No more slamming doors, and little feet running across the wood floors.
No need to sweep sand off the floors today.
The beach towels are all folded, and put away.
The peace, and quiet is bittersweet.
The house seems bigger when I'm here alone.
(The Mr. is at work).
I like it better when there are people here....sharing this space with me.
The time between visits helps me appreciate it more when loved ones come up to visit, I guess.
I'm sure I can find something to do around here...like wallpaper those steps!!
I sincerely hope that you are enjoying the summer as much as I am.
God Bless You!!
