Back from Vacation

We stayed here, at Mineral Springs Resort in Vernon, NJ for a few days. It has 5 pools - this one (a view from our balcony) was a hot 90 degrees! A little vigorous exercise LOL
And then of course I had to rest for quite a long time. I knit washcloths - very mindless knitting and read Vanishing Act by Jodi Picoult and Trap Door by Sarah Graves and Tears of The Giraffe ( No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series) by Alexander McCall Smith.

Then I jumped off a cliff well - okay - that's not me, it's my 8 year-old granddaughter who finally got up the nerve to do it and was very proud of herself. That's her brother in the water encouraging (daring) her to do it, and then swimming back with her to make sure she was okay.

We also spent a few days at my sister's house on Lake Hopatcong, visiting with friends and family, a day in NYC, and lots of relaxing!

Oh man I wish I was in those pools. I am glad you had a great time. Were you reading both books at the same time? Oh that would confuse me, lol
