HOW TO STILL LOVE SUMMER EVEN WHEN YOU HATE IT
A Guest Post by award-winning author Lisa Childs
I was not a big fan of summer – due to the heat and humidity – until my husband and I bought a cottage “up north”. I’m not sure what exactly constitutes up north in Michigan. It seems to encompass a large area, but yet every Michigander knows where it is. Our cottage is on a small lake that’s just the right depth for a nervous swimmer new to kayaking. We also have a boat that pulls tubers – which is great fun for the kids. I enjoyed it, too, until the boat ran out of gas. Thankfully it’s a lake where everyone knows everyone and someone boated out with a full gas can to rescue us.
I also have the perfect, inspiring view out the front windows of the cottage that look onto the lake, so that I don’t miss any deadlines. It’s probably my favorite place to write now. It’s also a wonderful place to relax with a good book. Summertime reading is the best. I hope everyone else is enjoying their summer – and their summer reading – as much as I’ve been.
Here are some pictures below of my inspiring view
