where we are sharing the garden with a host of little creatures.
The girls have settled into the downstairs bedroom:
There is much that is new here.
And so many opportunities to play:
And to simply sit by the water's edge in a great hat.
But my thoughts are turning to the work ahead. Tomorrow we shall visit Shelburne Farms as one last day off. In retrospect, it was probably not realistic to expect to land in Burlington on Friday and start work on Monday (you reckon?). Getting over the flight, and sorting out the issues has taken longer than we expected (a full three days to buy a car!). But with the main issues resolved - car bought, insurance arranged, piano purchased, and Bruce's office set up - and school starting next week, we will start to settle into a working rhythm.
I am, however, thinking Bruce and I might spend some of our lunchtimes, when the girls are back at school, kayaking on the lake.
One last sunset picture, because I haven't yet stopped marvelling at the sun on the lake, framed by the misty mountains.
