Diamonds and cobwebs.

Yesterday three members of my family joined me at the lake. We had the best intentions of spending the majority of the day out in the boat. You know; bobbing in the warm water around the islands, talking, laughing, catching up. Relaxing.

Raindrops were falling on our heads.

Raindrops were falling on our heads.

Plans sometimes change, but a storm blowing rain up from the south didn’t deter us. We sat in the boat, boat still in the boat lift, and watched the rain.

Twisted web.

Twisted web.

It was a beautiful thing.

Rain on water.

Rain on water.

And then we did what any typical northern family does in a rain storm in the south.

We went swimming.

Come on in, the water's fine!

Come on in, the water’s fine!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Loved this! I remember I was always a water baby. Lifeguarded, taught swimming. When I was a kid and it rained, one of my favorite things was to NOT get out of the pool, but to sit underwater and look up and watch the rain hit the surface from below. It was just beautiful! DakotasDen

  2. Sounds like a good time – we got rain, too. It rained out my son’s football game. We’ll get a second chance on Monday. Swimming would have been much more fun. We’re ‘grounded’ from the lake until after football and wrestling season, by then it will be frozen over. Thank you, have a great week.
