Home for the Summer: Another summer has come and gone
Ah, summer. Big sigh. It's over and it was a chilly one (except for the hot spells), but already we miss it. Ah, winter. Big sigh. Somehow, when it's time for winter to be over our sentiment is generally, "Finally, thank heavens." And that's winter down south in Chicago.

Home for the Summer: Always turning off to the right
For interesting little gravel roads that go who-knows-where, there's no place like the North Shore. Ever since we started coming up here I've driven down as many of them as I could manage. Some of them I wish I hadn't explored -- like those roads that don't look like driveways but...

Home for the Summer: Bubbles are among my favorite things
Years ago I wrote about liking bubbles. I still like them. At home I have a bottle of bubbles with a wand inside on the outside kitchen window sill. Many mornings, after I get the newspaper off the driveway, I take a bubble break and blow a few around the neighborhood. Up at the...

Home for the Summer: Our winter inside the cabin
It's the middle of summer, and we occasionally have snow showers in the cabin. OK, OK -- flurries, occasional flurries. Just before we arrived, the new roof on our cabin was finished. It looks great and we enjoy the patter of rain overhead now that we know the roof and eaves are...

Home for the Summer: New changes around the North Shore
Every summer, after we're just slightly settled into the cabin, we take a day to drive around and see what's what in our North Shore neighborhood. We notice what property is newly for sale, or still for sale, or sold. We're on the look-out for foxy new mailboxes or new pieces of sculpture...

Home for the Summer: Little critters make themselves at home
We've been up in the cabin long enough now to have gotten our live-and-let-live policy in regard to critters up and running. When we first arrive, there are no chipmunks. Rather, there are no chipmunks that we are aware of. Lots of them live under the cabin, and when humans show up...

Home for the Summer: The robin fussed, but hung around
Back at home we live on a little man-made lake. Sometimes it's called a pond, but since we're not in the land of 10,000 lakes we mostly can get away with calling it a lake. We moved there years ago, and our three daughters all grew up there. Gasoline motors were not permitted on the...

Home for the Summer: Caring for plants on the North Shore
Well, we're back — back up in Minnesota, back on the North Shore, back in our cabin. We're checking out what's new (our roof and eaves), what's changed (the beach), what's the same (just about everything else).
