I finished cleaning

the Casita today.

Now my guests

have clean place to stay.


Leaving the city

to come to the lake.

I watch as their stress

takes a needed break.


Swimming, fishing,

kayaking and more.

Nature, barbecuing

and of course s’mores.


The kids chase fireflies

while the adults sit and chat.

The fire is crackling

there is nothing we lack.


Every year

it is the same routine.

We never get tired

of living the dream.
