Holidays are wonderful but “all good things must come to an end”, or so I’ve heard it said.
When we reached our lakeside cabin we weren’t surprised to find forest fire smoke masking the blue sky, but fortunately within a few days the wind shifted and cleared the smoke away.
After a brief shower one late afternoon a double rainbow even appeared — perhaps God’s promise of something, although I’m not sure of what… certainly not that it wouldn’t rain, because it occasionally did. Maybe that the smoke wouldn’t return, because it didn’t.
It was a lovely two weeks of puttering, writing and family togetherness… the perfect mix for a wonderful holiday retreat. But now it’s time to return to reality, so I’ll be back here in a jiff with a new writing post for you! Just give me a couple minutes to get my thoughts organized.
