A little time for me

 I took a much needed break from the rehab center this afternoon. Not only did I need a break, but my Dad was looking like he could use a nap. The good weather and the tourists have descended upon Wolfeboro for the 4th of July weekend. The only route between my sister's home and the rehab center is directly through Main Street. Traffic is bumper to bumper due to the multiple stops for pedestrians on the many crosswalks. I am sure the restaurants, shops, and galleries are very happy to see the multitudes.
                      
 My sister's home is like an oasis. She lives in what once was a vacation lodge that has been turned into four apartments. Right now all the residents are women, each with a variety of cats and dogs. Both the humans and the pets are very friendly.


The end of the driveway faces the big lake, Winnipesaukee. The side yard abuts Mirror Lake which is much smaller. Mitt Romney has a summer home on Winnipesaukee, my niece takes care of their horses during the summer. Jimmy Fallon and other celebrities are frequent visitors as well. Most of the small traditional cabins have been replaced with mansions that dot the shore line. 


Mirror Lake is nice and quiet, no big motor boats or jet skis stirring up a wake. Just a relaxing dock where you can dip your feet into the water, which was surprisingly warm considering it was 52 degrees when I arrived on Sunday.

I will head back the rehab center around 6pm. Hopefully the traffic will have eased, and five minute drive won't take twenty-five minutes. I can tuck Dad into bed and come back to this oasis and enjoy a glass of wine on the deck.

  2. I'm glad you're finding ways to take good care of yourself. A glass of wine while looking at water and perhaps stars sounds lovely.
