Time Out for a Summer Day Reflection

So much for my 3 part blog post idea.  I should know better when it's summer time!  Yesterday my son had a baseball game and on the way back some friends and I stopped by my childhood town. I thought I'd share some pics taken by a friend.  What a beautiful Northern Minnesota day! 

 Wow, what a reflection! (Down the river a few hundred yards are the rapids.  You wouldn't guess it from the calm waters here!  The bridge is an old railroad bridge.  When I was a kid, the trains still ran and we use to walk across...what were we thinking?)

Michael and Me (I'm not as agile on the rocks as I use to be!)


Michael and a friend

 Another lovely reflection on the river.

Michael's best friend, Samantha.  She found the "best" walking stick and insisted we take it home.  It's still in my trunk and waiting for our next adventure.


  1. This is wonderful! Michael is adorable, and I'm smiling about his bestie finding the awesome walking stick that's a keeper. :) I think you deserve that day off, after all the schoolwork you've been doing.

    And I have to admit to being slightly jealous. It's actually been COLD here. In June. Right now my feet are freezing and I wish I knew where the winter socks are hidden! So the pics of your wonderful summer interlude will have to do the trick of keeping me warm. :)

  2. Thanks, Donna! :) It's not often we're than elsewhere in the country, but it has been HOT here. Can't complain though! Michael IS adorable, but I didn't think so in the car. Way too much sugar. LOL Walking the rocks helped, but I can't say who steadied who...I tried to help him across some streams but tipped us both off balance a time or two! LOL

    Glad you liked the photos!

  3. That was supposed to be "it's not often we're WARMER than elsewhere in the country"...oops, skipping words. LOL

  4. Wow, just found your blog, and I am loving it Melissa! Can't wait to go through all the articles of being a romance writer. Because I need a little help. :)

  5. Anonymous: Thanks so much! I really appreciate you taking the time to give my your feedback. I'm so glad you're enjoying the blog!

    We ALL need a little help when we write our stories. I know that I need LOTS of help. LOL I hope some of my thoughts and links on my search will help you too!
