Twin Lakes


The midget and I took the opportunity last weekend to drive out and do a bit of exploring.

This is Twin Lakes, one body of water that is divided into Upper and Lower Twin Lakes connected by a little channel. It completely freezes over in the winter to the point that people drive atvs over it to get to the other side of the lake.

No post last week due to a great party the previous weekend and that’s when I write my posts (generally). A party where the guest room, and couches were full of overnight guests, the sinks were full of dishes, and there was an overflowing of chocolate. And some ale. And homemade chai. All of that and the only picture I took was of the best rice crispies I have ever had:

To make up, here are the best posts I read last week:

Some Thoughts on Adventures “We disvalue the beauty of the in-between chapters of our lives in favor of the highlights. We want to bypass things like plot twists and character development because the epic moments of triumph are what we think makes our stories great, when really, those milestones are just markers in yet another series of twists and turns that are making us who we are in the end.” This post was a great reminder for me that living a life to honor Christ is the greatest adventure, not the next new place to travel.
