Well, I am finally getting around to blogging. But the culprit in my lack of time was not the work – it is that my laptop has died. I am taking it to get fixed on Tuesday, but I have had to share a computer with Rob. Sharing is no fun when the person you are sharing with has actual work to do and you want to sit and blog and check facebook. But now it is the weekend so here I am.Some friends of my cousins have a house in the Poconos, right on one of the lakes with a funny name that I cannot remember. They graciously invited us for the weekend. Of course we accepted.
This is the view from the back window.
The lake was completely frozen. The house had no internet (well there was a dial-up connection – but who needs that). And in some places we had no cell service. Perfect for a weekend getaway. The first day we were there we stayed in our pjs and did a jigsaw puzzle, and some of the millions of crosswords. I actually finished a few almost by myself. Then we went out for a birthday dinner for Peggi.
Day two we went walking across the frozen lake. It was fun.
When we weren’t outside or doing crosswords, we watched the birds on the feeders. This picture was taken with Rob’s new technique to read about in the Eagle post.
