today we went to bass lake. you should know that i LOVE bass lake. of the almost 16 years that i have lived in these mountains, i have lived in bass lake for 8 of them. now we live 40 min. away from bass lake, at the south end of these mountains. i miss the green fragrant pine trees, purple mountain majesties, 10 degree cooler weather, walking around the lake, and i miss donna our old neighbor (she really loved our family, we really loved her).
we had to head up to the lake to get some things ready for next weekend. next weekend we are having friends up at the lake. BLOG FRIENDS!!! and i am SO excited.
next weekend is also our church's 6th Feast of Tents, and we are having the awesomest speaker and worship leader EVER! Al Siebert (who happens to be this person's father) and Chad Markley (who happens to be the same person's husband).
i had the privilege of meeting Sarah, her family, and parent's in December. we have been looking forward to our time together next weekend ever since!
Kristen is also coming! Kristen and i have never met in person, but we have met on skype. it was love at first skype. we have been looking forward to a bass lake get together for some time. (yep, she is traveling all the way from idaho. she ROCKS!).
(Kristen and Sarah have met once).
so there are lots of details to finalize this next week in preparation for thier arrival, and for the Feast of Tents.
so ( hmmm, i say "so" a lot to begin sentences) today we headed to bass lake to make sure the most important thing was ready for their arrival ... what's that? we had to put the BOAT IN THE WATER! after all what good is a lake if you can't go on it?and now this is a bit pathetic, but i have lived here for nearly 16 yrs, and have NEVER driven the boat on my own. when Michael told me i had to drive the boat back to the house, as he drove the truck w/trailer back i FREAKED! it was an inner freak, i didn't let him know i was freaking (i think he knew i was freaking). because i was inner freaking, i planned on driving the boat along the shoreline at a safe 5 miles per hr. but when i got out there on the water... i aborted my plan, and went straight out onto the middle of the lake at a fast speed (fast for me is 25 mph).
this is me driving the boat without other adult supervsion.
this is where i parked the boat without other adult supervision.
i am very proud of myself.
for some reason the Steve Miller Band is lake music to me, which is why i titled this post with lyrics from a popular S.M.B. song.
What is lake music to you?
What blog friends would you really like to meet?
When are you coming for a visit?
