We made it!
Jim and I actually managed to spend the first week of our summer at the Creek House!
We met Meagan's and Bri's families down there for Memorial Day weekend. Kelli and her kids came on Sunday to celebrate Dayton's 3rd birthday. Everyone left on Monday, but Jim and I stayed until the following Monday, when we had to head back to Waller in order to prep for a trip to Branson to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday.
We made the 2 hour commute in to the office two days last week. It was a great time to catch up with one another. He drove in the mornings and I drove us back in the evenings.
We spent a wonderful, quiet week together for our 36th anniversary. We found some great summer recipes that really hit the spot when you're on the water. And we drove over to Matagorda to eat out one night when neither of us wanted to cook.
The Internet and cell phone service down there is 'spotty' at it's best and non-existent for the most part. This means few texts, fewer phone calls and the probability of checking your email is pretty much 'nil' unless you drive down to the Dollar General.
We got lots of rest. Slept like logs. Did a little fishing and crabbing from the dock. Watched a few movies. Fought a few (thousand) mosquitoes. Took the boat out for a ride on the creek. And I read two novels. (Woo Hoo!)
So far, so good! I am looking forward to a great summer and hoping that we are able to spend the rest of June's weekends down on Caney Creek (once we return from Branson, that is). Even when the storms rolled in on Sunday, it was still beautiful!
I hope you are looking forward to something that renews your spirit this summer too!
