Rain, Rain Go Away

Another week of rain. I think spring hit late around here! The flowers kind of came up and then withered on the vine. At least we're not at scorch and 100 percent humidity yet. June can be that way here sometimes.

This weekend is my employer's party - huge carnival, concert, blah blah blah. I would have rather had a raise. But Sunday is a day at the beach in Yankton on the river. Hopefully the sun will grace us with it's presence. Don't know if we'll take a boat out or not, but I love boating on that river. You can just go and go and go. I love the way the wind feels in my hair and the sun on my face. I'm kind of a dork about boats. We never did boating when I was growing up and I'm so fond of it now. I'm like a little kid every single time. I like that child-like quality about me today - the ability to just enjoy the moment for what it is. Water, sun, wind, exhilarating.

Getting up on waterskis is another story entirely.

I LOVE boating. I'm too fair-skinned to live it up, but my brother's sail boat has the extra canopy to keep me protected. He puts up the sails and the boat just GOES. I love it... It feels like Wild Abandon.

Some of my favorite childhood memories were of our summer vacation to the 1000 Islands and tooling around the islands in a little ole rowboat with a 7 horse Evinrude looking for a hot fishing spot.
