This week has been glorious. We have spent most every afternoon at the lake. Most afternoons it has just been the two of us, the water so still, the afternoon light fabulous, and the beach quiet, so quiet........just a week ago it was full of life.
There are signs what comes next, what lies ahead.
Still, I wonder when Zoe will wake up and not ask to go to the lake first thing.....will we be alone at the beach in November Zoe swimming to the ladder and back and me in my down jacket, wool socks, hat and mittens pouring carrot and ginger soup from a thermos?
