#11:  Going up to the lake.

I'm not sure if it's just a Minnesota thing, 
but here in the summer people go up to the lake.
Even if it's south of home.
Usually it's not.

They even shorten it with "Goin' up."
"Ya goin' up this weekend?"
"Ya, you betcha."

We've been blessed with generous friends
who share their cabin with numerous people every summer
and wish there were enough weekends for more.
We're spoiled, to say the least.

I love the rhythm of days at the cabin.

Gorgeous sunrises and loon calls reward the early riser.

Inside for cards.

Or movies.

Or board games.
Whatever floats your boat.

And repeat.
It's always hard to come home.

You are killing me. I need a lake so badly I'm like an addict. But Mr. B and I give your husband's t-shirt to Yellow thumbs up.
