I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

What I've been doing

I’ve survived another reunion. We all had a good time and I did love having all the kids at home. We ended up with twenty-seven for the reunion. That amount we can do comfortably as long as we can use the carport and it was fine this year. We got more of the younger generation here this time so the pool got a lot of use. And Nick got a pool picture with his drone.



Monday morning Nick and I headed for my cousin’s lake house. This is the I used in my head for much of Cassie’s house on the river. It’s a beautiful peaceful place and I love going once a year. This was our room there, with such a beautiful view someone suggested they put a large mirror on the opposite wall so where ever you are standing you see the water.






We had a great lightening show on our last night at the lake and I was able to capture some great pictures! 






I followed my usual vacation plan - talking, eating and napping with boating thrown in a bit. Heavenly. Unfortunately, reality is now sticking it’s nose back into my life. I over-did the eating and vastly under-did the exercising. I have six day to return to the weight I was last month on the thirteenth, as per Nick’s orders. And in fairness these orders were given long before the reunion so I really can’t say I wasn’t warned. It can be done, but can do it? 

I don’t have a car at the moment – it’s in the shop, doctors don’t like diabetics going on a crash (stop eating) diets so I may have to get creative. Cross your fingers for me and I’ll let you know.

  1. hi Pk, wondered what you were up to. Sounds like a fun summer. At least without a car you have to walk everywhere which will help the weight stuff. Hugs
    love Jan, xx

    1. You can't walk anywhere from my house. No sidewalks for one thing and nothing but houses for miles.

    1. Umm... about those mirrors, I think the fantasy of how we would look might just be better than really seeing what we look like! LOL!

  9. Last night I was too tired to do anything but go to bed early and this morning I couldn't get wifi on my iPad. But perseverance pays off. I finally just now got here. What a beautiful post! Your pictures are gorgeous! So glad you had a great time with the family. Is the lake house only used for vacations? What a wonderful place to go for peace and quiet. I'm happy to have you back. You were missed. I hope that switch has dried out by now--just in case!

    1. It was a lovely storm. I did take the pictures, but I cheated a little. I took the video, Mollie pulled out the individual shots for me. This is their vacation house but they are there a lot.
