Canadian Summers

This weekend is our first opportunity this summer to get out of the city and run around barefoot in the grass, bumping into trees and blaming the forest.  And to be delighted by the beauty of a wasp, toad and big-assed fire!

It’s our first cottage weekend in 2008, and we are more than a little excited about it.  To demonstrate my level of enthusiasm, here’s the note I sent to our lovely host:

When do you need us ready and standing on the Fresh Wood Smoked Bagelslawn quivering with anticipation?

Can I make bagels on Sunday morning?

Can I fall asleep at 9pm?

My weekend includesCan I sit and read on the deck, and the porch, and the dock, and the platform and in bed?

Can I hold that while you cut and Foot Printshammer and fix and level?

Can I photograph everything? (Including you)

Woo Hoo… cottage time!!!!
