I'm happy to say though, that I also love my beach place and my work with Allegany Franciscan Ministries. It certainly has kept me busy, as have a few other things (I'll share just a few). I was greeted by Liam (I went to share his sixth birthday weekend) with a huge lingering hug and an impassioned "I've missed you Mémère!", (brought tears to my eyes). Here he's sporting his two dangling-by-a-thread front teeth that he eventually lost, one by one.
Blue Ridge Institute (something I would highly recommend for any non-profit execs) in Fall Creek Falls State Park, where I was greeted by this doe,
My time here at the cabin has been refreshing, where I've shared my birthday with Johny, taken lots of pictures, and enjoyed swinging in the swing, just being.
Beyond all that, you may be wondering where I've been. Truth is, even though I have lots of awesome things that are happening in my life, the essence of Lise's Log Cabin Life comes from the cabin, and what happens to me when I'm here. Not only on the outside, but the inside (of me). My writing self is inspired here at the cabin and I want to share this wonderful place with you (and where, of course, I have lots of time to write for pleasure). My working self is inspired in FL, and I'm not sure how much of my everyday life is going to be of great interest to you (where, of course, I don't have lots of time to write for pleasure). The fact is, there are some things I believe will spark your interest, and I will post those as life happens...I'm thinking of it somewhat like the fireflies, sparkling a bright light now and then, long enough to be enjoyed, brief enough to not be boring yet make you want more, and intermittent enough that when you see it again, the thrill is there. I'm hoping you find the comparison to be true. At this moment, being in the space I consider my muse, I'm sharing :)
Thanks for reading my blog, see you again soon,
Great blog...love the updates! Hugs!
I am sooo late in commenting. I did read it the day it was posted. I really need to slow down and smell the roses!
Great post, I will look forward to more, regardless of cabin or work!
Glad you got to spend some vacation time up at the cabin. It must feel different from when you lived there full time. I know after I've been away from my cabin home, returning brings out such warm, nurturing feelings. We spent most of our summer up the lake, except for brief trips to the States for "business" and a one week vacation to Newfoundland and Labrador. That was great! We took our camping gear in our airline suitcases (cost $21 each for an extra bag), but the result was so much for interesting than staying in hotels and motels. In fact, some of the places we went didn't have places to stay except for camping. I'm glad your beach life and job are working out so well. Keep in touch. - Margy
Sounds as if you are making the most of all the facets of your life. Well done!
