"The future is something which reaches everyone at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is." C.S. Lewis

Well, back on January 1 of this year, I was hoping to contribute more to this blog. It is now August and that obviously hasn't happened. I must say though that my journalling has picked up speed and I am trying to stay consistent with that.
Summer began in May with the arrival of our two youngest back to the nest for their respective jobs. It was an adjustment for Andrew and I after being empty nesters for a bit, however we discovered that adult children can be fun to have around (sometimes). Our annual trek to Harvey Lake and 2 glorious sunny weeks proved to be a balm for our souls. The most revealing book I read this summer was 'Simply Tuesday' by Emily Freeman and would recommend it. There was lots of other reading done and some knitting projects started and finished which was satisfying. Andrew spent many hours in the kayak, just relaxing and taking a much deserved break from his work. We also had the chance to visit with some really sweet girls and renew our friendship and relationship with our granddaughters in Fredericton. We cherish this time together as we dream about the future and what that might look like for us.

 Securing the ropes so we don't lose the kayaks enroute.

 Happened upon a used bookstore in Amherst. Thousands of books piled everywhere in a large warehouse type building. We could have spent hours there.

 A beautiful sunrise on one of my many early morning walks. A verse from Lamentations came to mind on this new day - His compassions never fail, they are new every morning.

And finally, a blog on Harvey Lake would not be complete without a sunset picture. We were treated to many of these.

And now I will continue on with a post of our trip to Quebec City. It's catch up time!!
