Just going away for 2 days puts a spin on things that need to be done daily.
We came home and I put the things from the overnight away, planned some bean tacos for dinner and tidied a few things that needed to be done. Mostly this amounts to just putting things away that have been left out. Since my daughter was home alone, it can add up… chickens, getting the wood, dog care, cat care. All by one person, so it’s a lot.
But since our house is tiny, it doesn’t take long to put those misplaced things back. A few towels to the laundry, a few pieces of junk,mail in the garbage, etc.
We had a great time in South Lake Tahoe and it snowed over the peaks last night so it was beautiful.
Here’s a picture of Emerald Bay.
That’s the only island in Tahoe and has the remains of the stone tea house that was built as part of Vikingsholm. If you’re ever there be sure to hike down to see the house. It is truly a marvel especially since it was built when roads were still dirt through the mountains.
Todd Borg, a local author, who writes murder mysteries all taking place in Tahoe just released his new book, Tahoe Payback. It starts out with murder on tea island. Great book and he really writes about the amazingness of Lake Tahoe. Plus, he mentions places to visit and real places to actually dine. Lots of fun.
