Oh Canada....
When you read this, we'll be driving north, for a week in the Canadian woods. Some little place called Parry Sound I believe, in a three bedroom cabin our son-in-law chose for the view and solitude. The fact that we're to bring our own sheets, towels, and 'tea towels' is just fine, in light of the great price for the place. Right on a lake, with a little sandy beach for wading - with highs only in the low 70's we won't be going in past our ankles, a spot to build a campfire for roasting marshmallows every night with Landon, lots of time for curling up with a book, or board games, or taking hikes - that sort of thing. No cell phone or internet that I know of, and that sounds delightful to all of us, especially our daughter who is a cyberschool teacher and is on the computer every single day for hours.

We'll cook breakfast together every morning, figure out lunch and then maybe drive into the little town 15 minutes away, in search of a mom and pop type of place that serves dinner or we'll throw something together. We're not fussing much over the food and menus.

Other than that, there's nothing much planned except the boys' special fishing trip on Tuesday, until we end at Niagara Falls next Friday.

It's the perfect way to end summer I think. I'll be posting just a bit while I'm gone with a book review or two, otherwise you won't hear much from me over here. Isn't it funny that after you get the kids back in school you need a three day weekend to recover from that early morning rush out the door, before you can go back to it. Happy Labor Day everyone!
