You guys it’s the weirdest thing…I woke up this morning and my phone said it was September. That’s ridiculous, it just turned 2014 like half an hour ago…right? I think I need a new phone.
I’m fresh off the most relaxing of weekends with my family at Possum Kingdom Lake, where my grandparents have a timeshare on a condo (am I the only one who kind of feels like grandparents are the only people who buy timeshares? Not that it matters, because at the end of the day we got to stay at a gorgeous resort and it was delightful). I am pleased to report that I accomplished very little this weekend other than sleeping in various locations throughout the condo, eating delicious food, drinking wine, reading my new obsession Red Rising by Pierce Brown, working on my manuscript and then some more eating.
We did not actually do any swimming, boating or anything water-related while at the lake. Ironic, I know. But the pool was too far away, I ate too many cheesy potatoes to feel comfortable in my bikini and I’ve seen one too many Sci-Fi Channel movies to willingly swim in water I can’t see through. Lord only knows what kinds of lake monsters could be lurking in the depths below.
Oh but we did see deer! Lots of them, actually. One afternoon we stepped out of the condo to find a mommy deer and her two babies hanging out in the woods next door, about 15 feet away from us. Naturally we threw them some Fruit Loops for a healthy and tasty snack. My dad was very clear to point out that we were not to “hug Bambi” because even though the deer may look cuddly and adorable, they actually have very dangerous HOOVES with which they will not hesitate to roundhouse kick you in the face. Or something. Yeah, okay Dad. But I’m totally throwing more Fruit Loops.
And did you guys know that Laffy Taffy are called such because they in fact contain jokes on their wrappers? Because I did not, until this weekend.
Anyway, here are some pictures that I need to
clear off my camera thoughtfully share with you guys.
