These pictures were taken at the lake yesterday. We escaped Sunday morning and took the dogs with us. Layla loves to perch on the settee and watch the fish jump, turtles swim by or the daily visit from the swans. She likes to be outdoors but I think she's rather be in when I'm in, and unfortunately, I was in most of the time.
By late Sunday afternoon, I started to feel like I was coming down with the flu, sweating, then chills, dizziness, sick to my stomach. I sat on my rocking chair (from where these pictures were taken ), with a wool blanket around me. Meanwhile, The Husband worked and worked and worked some more. On his hands and knees, he pulled weeds from between the cobblestones of the patio, swept it all up and power washed it as well as the table and chairs. I went to bed early and thankfully when I woke up yesterday morning I felt much better. I had some coffee and then cleaned the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. I got dressed and made an attempt to put on makeup but I was starting to feel the fatigue again. I sat on my rocker and read and The Husband toiled some more.
I was so happy to cut some rosemary to bring inside. I started to feel better and went outside and cleaned the cushions to the patio chairs. Girls, Oxy Clean works like a charm. Of course, The Husband had a go at them with his power washer (his favorite toy) and they look like new. I took a little nap and when I woke up I felt a little more energized so I went in to town and picked up some provisions for dinner:
Two nice rib eye steaks, fresh broccoli and baby red potatoes. I had a good appetite and had a good size amount of butter on everything :)
I cleaned the kitchen and The Husband put all of his tools and toys away and we got on the road to come home. I was really looking forward to sleeping in my "own" bed, I still wasn't feeling 100% better. It must have been a touch of the flu. Abby had it on Sunday, too. The lake is home to me, but when you are sick, you really want to be HOME. I slept like a baby and was up early. I feel wonderful!
Now Milo on the other hand, has a hard time adjusting. He never stops when he's up at the lake and wants to be by The Husband's side at all times. He hasn't moved a muscle all day! He is in his favorite spot where he likes to sit as a guard dog, but it looks like he collapsed!
I feel our trip fast approaching. I did five loads of laundry already today and I have 2 more to go. I have a dental appointment tomorrow and a hair appointment Thursday. I need to decide what to pack, do some grocery shopping for the girls and have all the loose ends tied up. I'm bringing my laptop with so I will post from the road! I hope all of you are having a wonderful week! :-)
