Lazy Weekend

As you can tell from the photos above, we had a pretty relaxed weekend. James and I got up early Saturday morning and got going on our household projects- hanging a mirror, a clock, some artwork, towel rings. We were done by lunchtime, and since it was such a gorgeous day, we put the top down on the Mustang and drove through the countryside down to LaGrange, a little over an hour away. We stopped in at the Highland Marina Resort to look around and have lunch on the deck of the restaurant (photos below). We enjoyed the views of West Point Lake, watching the boaters going out and coming in. The resort has cabin rentals, as well as boat rentals, not to mention a huge RV park, picnic areas, playgrounds, swimming, walking trails, the Waterfront Restaurant, and a large store. I would love for us to rent a cabin for the weekend and fish, maybe in the fall. It seemed like a very nice, quiet, pleasant place to spend a few days, right there on the 27,000 acre lake.


  1. Love the squirrel!! And I can't keep my chubby little black Tink out of my glass. Be it water, wine, whatever - she's sticking her nose or her paw in there to get a little taste.

    Your weekend looked very relaxing. Wish I was having one of those soon! Hubby returned yesterday following the death of his father. Now we are leaving for San Diego on Thursday to go visit our kids and grandkids. We all need a little quiet family time to wrap our heads around the events of the past few weeks.
