the weekend at the lake

I wrote the following story snippet and created the related treasury for Etsy’s Trendsetting Team’s 96th Scavenger Hunt.

The story was inspired by and written using Julie’s wonderful 15 words: celebration, bare foot, lake, path, sleep, ice cream, car, travel, read, picnic, hike, soda, hat, relax, heat

“the weekend at the lake”

it was a simple CELEBRATION
but that was what she needed
down to the LAKE


she brought some ICE CREAM, SODA
and a small PICNIC lunch
in her red Coleman cooler
a lawn chair, a HAT
and a good book to READ


when she arrived she took a long HIKE
along a PATH encircling the shimmering blue expanse
she left behind the stress of her city life with each step


she had no agenda pending
she had no organized plans
simply to wade BARE FOOT in the cool shallows of the lake
and to SLEEP soundly and deeply in the HEAT of the noontime sun

and for the first time in many, way too many weeks,
she felt her body and her mind
finally let go and release
and fully
and deeply
