if you didn't know it already, keith and i are spending most of the summer in southport, nc. it's near wilmington. keith is completing his third clinical rotation at the local hospital and i am doing one class and working on my thesis. this will be the most relaxing summer we've had in a very long time.
and we are very lucky and fortunate that his aunt and uncle are letting us stay at their lake house with them while we are in southport. thanks uncle j and aunt l!!
so, today is officially my 4th day at the beach. its been awesome. and technically we aren't at the beach. we are on a lake that is 15 minutes from the beach. so we really have the best of all worlds.
we have plenty of water sports to occupy our time: kayaks, canoeing, and paddle boating. we have bikes and skateboards. and of course, its flatter than a desert here, so running is easy breezy!
but the best part of the day is "wine time". everyday after work or around 5:30, which ever it may be, johnny and laraine have wine time. they sit on the screen porch, have a glass of wine, and snacks. its perfect. and its quiet sweet because they sit outside for 30 minutes to an hour and just talk and enjoy each other. and talk about their day, things they have going on or whatever. it's the best way to unwind and forget about all the stresses of the day for a little while. i think keith and i are going to have to add "wine time" to our daily schedule when we get home!
and even with alllll the distractions and toys to play with, i am getting some work done. who knew that was even possible?! so, i think it's gonna be a good summer!!
i'll post some pictures next time! :o)
