two days in a row at mallard lake

we sat here and watched the sunset

we sat here and watched the sunset

i simply let the world go by this weekend reading, curling up in bed, listening to music and lots of naps in between.  guiltlessly abandoning the usual chores, even cancelling prior engagements.  i was pretty much cooped up except for mass on sunday and two afternoons at mallard lake.

saturday, though it did not rain at sundown, was dark and cloudy. the sun was nowhere to be seen.  sunday however, though wet in the morning, turned out be a real treat.  it was a gorgeous day.

mallard lake, as always, is delightful.  it is a favorite haven close to home, a convenient escape from madness.  hubby packed light dinner on both evenings.  we took easy strolls but mostly enjoyed the scenery and the evening breeze very much grateful for the beauty around us.
