A Midsummer Night

I haven't written anything in a while. I will try to do better at writing!

I am still enjoying my job. It's great experience, and I am learning something new every day. I am so glad to have this job, using my writing.

Summer is going great. I have my evenings off, generally speaking. I have time to do some of my house projects, to read and write, to brush up on my French, etc. And to hang out outside, garden, walk my dog. Good times. I hope everyone is having a good summer!

I went to my old camp Lake Beauty last weekend. It was so nice to go somewhere where I've spent so much time in the past. After going to camp during most summers growing up, volunteering in high school, going to family camp for over 10 years with famiy, and working on summer staff for 3 years in college, I have a lot of memories there. So much was the same, yet different. The beach, lake, field, lodge, chapel, and gym were essentially the same. Many buildings had updates like air-conditioning or painting. The chapel services were the same great music and interesting speakers. It seems like just yesterday when I went to camp there or worked there. But I can see how things have changed too. I saw many people I'd worked at camp with in the past, some married with kids, some with interesting jobs. It was fun to catch up with some people who I hadn't seen in a long time.

It was just a great weekend to relax and remember memories from the past. I enjoyed having a 4th of July weekend off.

Have a great week!
