Preparing for my Future Life on the Lake

I once told my husband if we got a pool, I’d never get dressed in the summer. He told me I had a pool in my future.

I should have said I need to have a lake house.

One of my daughters just had a slumber party at her friend’s house, which just happens to be surrounded by lake. The house is completely lit up with light reflecting off the lake. The children jump on a big trampoline with the lake as a constant backdrop.

There’s a swing that’s hung just so you can swing over the lake. Not to mention the dock, now invitingly set up with a table and chairs. And their swimming hole, and they have boats.

*sigh*

With all that water around, I wouldn’t rest until all the children were drown proofed, it goes without saying.

After I picked up my daughter, I had to run to the store. I ran into one of our pastors, and we talked about how wonderful it would be to live on a lake some day. I personally would prefer to live on the lake for a month or two in the summer. I can leave the cold in the winter.

But if it was in a hot climate…

Until then, I plan to waterproof those babies.
