i don't have time for this

Remember 2 or 3 posts back when I gave my schedule for these next couple weeks? I'm one day into the madness, and it only gets crazier from here. The last thing I should be doing right now is watching the Bachelorette and writing a blog post, but I'm doing both. I can't resist putting up a few of these pictures from the past couple of absolutely perfect weeks.

a day in the life

6:00 – wake up to bright sun, roll over and fall back asleep

8:00 – wake up, for real this time

8:23 – eat strawberry yogurt and a cinnamon raisin bagel

8:37 – begin kayaking

9:45 – return to house, eat breakfast for the second time

10:41 – begin laying out on the dock and reading

12:08 – go inside and grab lunch to take it back to the dock

2:10 – go for a swim

2:21 – decide the water is too cold for casual swimming

2:22 – continue laying out and reading

4:45 – take a nap on the hammock

5:57 – eat dinner on the picnic table

7:12 – wander around with cell phone trying to get service and 3G for internet

8:19 – go kayaking with Laura, take pictures of sunset

9:30 – sit at fire and roast s’mores

10:44 – grab sweatshirt and flashlight and stargaze from the dock

11:37 – get in bed, read a section of Psalm 119, drift to sleep, prepare to do the same thing all over again the next day

Day in and day out, this is pretty much how life at Songo Pond goes. Of course, all kinds of places and things to do are right around the corner…hiking trails, outlet malls, rivers, quaint New England towns, etc. We have plenty of other adventures, but more about them another time. Because when the weather is nice, I find myself more than content to simply stay.

In this house

With this view

Let's be real. Could you ever bring yourself to leave?
