We "vacated" this week. To me, that means going someplace different and doing things you don't do at home. Here are twenty things we did that we don't usually do:
1.Lived in a rustic cabin in the woods.
3.Read in Adirondack chairs.
4.Got poison ivy.
5.Made s'mores over a campfire.
6.Went mountain biking-some of us, any way.
7.Chased a very persistent half-grown raccoon out of our campsite, repeatedly.
8.Used pit toilets.
9.Wore sweatshirts, morning and evening.
10.Saw birches, pines, and aspens.
11.Went swimming in a lake.
12.Pumped well water by hand.
14.Hung out with Matt.
15.Enjoyed dragonflies sunning themselves on my shoulders.
16.Provided a steady diet for mosquitoes.
17.Visited the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor.
18.Watched swallowtails on Queen Anne's lace.
19.Visited sister-in-law and nieces in Saginaw.
20.Spent 31st anniversary sleeping in bunk beds in a one room cabin with our son.
It was fun! But I'm always glad to get back to where there are no silly trees and hills blocking my view of the sky.
