Vacation in Vermont

Lake Willoughby

As many of you know, I am currently on vacation and won’t be returning to work until after the Labor Day holiday.

Normally I would have written posts in advance and scheduled them to post while I was away but this time I didn’t. I’m not sure why. I was busy and just didn’t feel like it ;-)

But it does bother me to have over a week go by without any posts so I thought I would share some of my photos.

It is much cooler here than it was at home. I’m almost cold. Apparently it was hot right before I came but somehow Fall has arrived here. It’s been so long since I lived in New England that I forgot how short the summers can be.

The first full day we went to Lake Willoughby, a secluded lake near my brother’s house. It was only 63 degrees but was a beautiful day. As you can see, some people were swimming but I was wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. There was no way I was going swimming.

Alex and my brother (a hardy Vermonter) did not have the same problem and had no problem playing in the water all day. Alex had purple lips much of the afternoon.

I was feeling a little down before I left for Vermont and am already feeling much better. I think I spent too much time working this summer and not enough time relaxing. This trip is exactly what I needed.

And I’ve decided that after being alone for quite some time, I think I am ready to start dating again ;-)

It's Time!

      Hi Ajith – Thanks! We are both having a great time. Alex loves hanging out with her uncle and it gives me a break. I get to just lay on the lawn chair while they play :-)

    This is so nice, Kim. I am so glad you were able to get away. Sounds like you are having a great time. Great pictures!

    I am really happy you are having a great time Kim. This year was hard on you and you did so well…. As for dating, did you have anything in mind or did you decide it out of the blue? (sounds like the first one :P )…

    I have decided that vacations are part of life’s necessities, whether we think we need them or not.

    Dating is just dating….or making new friends….or so many are doing things on line even for friends these days….I was not good at dating, but I think when the decision comes it is well worth a try.

    I enjoyed your pictures – and it is feeling very Fall here too – I rather like it.

    WoW, the view around the Lake Willoughby is breathtaking! I never been to there before, maybe I’m going to plan a trip and spend my summertime next year at Vermont.
