Another day at the lake...how lucky am I? I spent the day at Marilyn's cabin on Sugar lake. She is one of my beautiful swim swans that I teach twice a week. We drove about an hour north and arrived at her sweet cabin and had hours of entertaining conversation, (I would tell you about what, but you would never believe it)laughs, great food, wine, and yes, more laughs. I was hoping perhaps to get some answers to life as these swans have been around a bit longer than I (ages 62-80), funny though, Jane said, "Lisa it is so nice to have you hear maybe we can get some answers from you". So I guess that no one had answers, but we had plenty to discuss, 5 hours flew by in no time. It was so fun, my life keeps getting better and better!
Marilyn's cabin (this one really is a cabin and so cute) is 30 feet off the lake, almost on the water. It does feel like you are on the lake while sitting on the deck. When they had it built years ago, there was no specification of how close you could build to the shore line. These days your foundation must be back 150feet. So this place is special, and I just love that they built the deck around this tree rather than cutting it down. So great!

So many amazing and colorful birds were fluttering around Marilyn's gardens, bird houses, and feeders. I saw a yellow finch, a hummingbird, and even 2 loons on the water. I heard one of them sing their lovely and entrancing song. And me? Well I am so blessed I am singing as well. So many great days in a row, I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
