Life is better

at the Lake.  At least that is what my glass says.

Where else to spend our long weekend but at our favorite home-away-from-home.  To watch the sun rise, to listen to the waves crash, and to watch the stars sparkle.

We always stop two places while hanging in Oscoda.  We shop at Klenows, a small market in Tawas;  then correspondingly, we stop in at Brew Krew to buy wine to accompany our purchase.   This trip was no different.  I always look forward to these adventures. 

We popped in on our early morning shop hoping to find some stuffed pork chops.  The place is hopping busy.  I looked around and didn't see any stuffed chops but knowing that they have a great selection asked.  The butcher said, "no we don't." Bummer I thought.  And then he said, "but we can make you some."

For real? For real.  He asked for 15 minutes to make the stuffing and stuff the chops.  I was floored.  But we were thrilled.  What service.  I LOVE that place.  So we have stuffed pork chops on tonight's menu. 

A storm rolled through late Sunday morning and stayed for the day. It brought drenching rain, rolling white caps, and strong winds.  Perfect weather for good books and naps.

Other than a small plumbing problem that will be fixed later this week, it's been close to perfect.  Oh, and the glass is right.  It's better up here.  At the Lake.
