And so we head out, complete with books for them (Gone Away Lake), books for me (The Children's Book, sort of apropos), some toypedos (trust me), goggles, and a fervent belief that it will be warm and sunny and relaxing and happy—to counteract an equally fervent fear that it will be cold and rainy and bug-infested and someone will get a stomach virus (this is a new vacation fear, one that holds me tightly in its grip for some reason).
So we hope you all read something great. We invite any and all to write in for some We Recommend action (we're hoping to return with many new ideas, as the cabin is across the street from an excellent library (though a somewhat mean librarian). We hope everyone enjoys these last few days. It's still summer! Don't let go until they make you.
