I can't believe summer is coming to an end soon, it feels like I only just got on board. I typically spend most of my summers getting ready for my work fundraiser (The Windy City Rubber Ducky Derby) and have discovered last week and this past weekend that we have a boat...it goes out on the water...I like it.  We've had a small (16') motor boat for the past 1 1/2 years and literally last weekend was the first time I went out on it with Joe.  Loved it so much we brought friends with yesterday and spent the day out on the lake.  Mmmm...fun!

Gives me time to reflect on life, re-connect with the One who created such wonderfulness, feel the wind and sun in my face and the mist on my back as we fly along moving from one fishing spot for the guys to another. 

Life is changing a bit, with Jen off at school, my SIL and her son have moved into their own place (after 3 1/2 years of living with us) and Joe and I are left with this big house and just the two of us in it. Trying to figure out if we still have anything in common, if we can amuse each other without kids and family providing entertainment.

Well, the boat is a good start, I absolutely LOVE it and plan to spend much of next summer focusing on what is important and carving out time for a real weekend every single week.  Priorities!!!

Now, we'll have to discover a winter activity to keep us busy and connected. :)
