Book Club Goes Skinny Dipping

Monday, September 26, 2011

My book club has been together for 10 years (me, 8 I think.) They are a great bunch. My friend Deb bought a cabin a couple years back & since then, we have been thinking about having a meeting out there. Well it finally happened on Friday night.

Most members are quite health conscious (marathons, cycling vacations, etc.) so the food was quite healthy. We ate like kings with some fresh garden veggies, grilled chicken burgers, grilled corn on the cob, berries etc. We did indulge in Skinny Girl Margeritas.

We sat outside for hours & then went inside to do the book. Afterwards, at midnight, some of us (are calling me a ring leader?) encouraged the others to go for a "Skinny Dip" in the lake. Okay, so I'm still at the "Chunky Dunk" stage of my life. It was a riot.

In the morning, we ate by the fire and then went walking. When the others left, at noon, Deb asked if I wanted to have a nap. "No, lets go kayaking" and we did. Then we swam.

I certainly got my 24 points. What a fantastic time!

Next year, we'll be ready for pictures.

    WHAT??? NO PICTURES??? (well... I'm glad you spared us the skinny-dipping... but... kayaking would have been fun!) I've always wanted to belong to a book club. I've tried a few times but it's never worked out... and honestly NOW, I don't know that I would EVER get a book finished "on time".... I read about 2 pages a night before I fall asleep! Pitiful... I do read while I pedal though... so that's an hour 3 or 4 times a week! But it's usually something spiritual and uplifting. Anyhow... I think a night at a cabin with a bunch of she-friends would be AWESOME! A group of my blogging friends from all over the east coast got together a few years ago down in Savannah -- 9 of us. For 9 days! We HAD A BALL!!! Oh my gosh... it was SO much fun! First time any of us had met "in person"... and most of us stayed at my friend Sandy's house! What a GEM her husband was to let our conclave settle on HIS turf!!! He was a terrific sport! WE were maniacs! A once in a lifetime opportunity! Too much fun! YAY for you and yours!!! emoticon

    FUN! Doodie59 just wrote about her Book Club weekend at a cabin. Between the two of you, I am thinking I need to find a book club to join. Your weekend sounds like it was fabulous.
