Summer Journal Day 7
Friday, August 7
Today would have been my mother’s 83rd birthday had the cancer not taken her back in 1973. Happy birthday mom and thank you.
It was cool again last night for August. We were in the tent early as it started to rain about 5 pm. The showers lasted only about an hour, but did make things wet. We had already packed most of our things.
Last night we had snacks for dinner and played several games of UNO. I worked on my Allagash walking stick before we climbed into the tent. We both read for a while. Chris seems to be enjoying his book. He has never been a big reader, but seems pretty interested in this book. I read some essays I had brought along by Sigurd Olsen.
It was nice to lie in bed last night and be entertained by the loons. There was much more activity on the pond last night compared to the night before. They were calling to one another and singing most of the night.
