Vacation Time

Sorry about my lack of posts this week, I just realized that this is the third one and Monday's sucked. Oops!

The reason why I have been so absent from the blog is because I was pretty absent from life last week. I was in Quebec (like I mentioned on Monday) hanging out with my family and having lots of fun relaxing and not doing very many blog worthy things. Well, more like I didn't take pictures of anything. I barely got my camera out for the 10 days that I was there and am shocked at the minimal amount of pictures I came home with.

I did come home with some though and I'm going to share a couple of them with you today. Like I mentioned in my Memory Monday - Cottage post, I specifically took time out of my vacation to take a little more vacation by going to the cottage with my Mom and my friend Kristy.

We were only there for a little over 24 hours but it was just what we needed. We spent most of the time eating tasty food, reading good books and enjoying the beauty around us.

We brought enough food to last us a couple days but we made a pretty serious dent in it. We each had our own box of cookies (due to allergies and taste preferences) as well as two giant bags of chips to share between the three of us. Oh and there were some fruit and veggies thrown into the eating every once in a while.

Kristy read two books while Mom and I almost finished one each. There is nothing so relaxing as sitting on the front porch, reading a good book while listening to the waves and the birds. I wish we could have stayed there for longer.

We did take a break from our reading to go and watch the sunset, which just kept getting nicer and nicer. I may have taken at least 10 pictures of it, but I'm only sharing one with you to keep you from getting too bored.

Stunning, right? Sigh.

We then finished off the evening with a round of Rumoli, per cottage tradition. I won.

It was the perfect time and I can't wait until my next visit, which will be who knows when.

Next week I'll share some more pictures from my time in Quebec, more specifically of some "sister bonding" which involved some awesome food.


  1. The cottage is a lovely place and that sunset is stunning indeed!

  2. In your words and photos, I can just feel the peace. It sounds blissful!!

  3. Jackie - The picture doesn't do the sunset justice, it was gorgeous.

    Tory - It was amazingly peaceful. I wish I could go more often.
