Halfway Thru November....Already!! How About Some Fall Colours!!













I can hardly believe how fast time is flying by!!!

Seems like we went from a very hot humid Summer...right into Winter!!

October and November have been chilly...wet and dark...

Had our first real Snowfall last Thursday...and has been very cold ever since!

Let's enjoy some of the Fall colour that I have captured at the cottage...and our drives to and from...

The sweet Bird pics are here at home... 

I finally got a few Succulent planters done...

I used one big pot, that was quite overgrown, and made a few smaller ones!!

I gave my 3 kids each one...of the smaller ones...fingers crossed they grow!

My friend Jane,(Blondies Journal) has been asking for inside pics of the cottage...

This is the biggest room...where we eat...in the inclimate weather...and have our fires...there is another small room with our TV...

The chairs are vintage...thrifty buys...mixed with a new Ikea couch...and lots of tables that the original owners left...all from the 30's and 40's...

A very eclectic mix of furniture! hahaha!!!  But very cosy!!

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs...and a very tight kitchen and bath on the main floor!!!

I will search for pics of these rooms, for a later date!!





 














Hope you are all well...

So sad about the wildfires in California...😢

Cottage is closed for the Winter...

Dreaming of next Spring already!!

Any Christmas decorating??

I'll be back with more pics very soon...

Cheers!  :o)

Hello Everyone!!! October Is Rolling Along....


















Hello everyone...
Seems like ages since I posted...and I guess it is!!
I have been trying to post for 2 days, and had a lot of problems with my photo editor.
I do like to add my name to my pics...so I persevered...and finally success!
trouble is...I post so infrequently...I have a hard time picking the pictures!! 
What a Summer and Fall it has been for clouds!! Just gorgeous...
Not to mention the wind! hahaha!!

Got an afghan crocheted for my Daughter Erika's bday in September ...
I have 2 others on the go...and one finished for Miss N's 1st bday in November...
Can you believe how time flies????

Our Thanksgiving went very nicely...everyone contributed to the meal...
According to their dietary requirements!
Miss N and Miss V got along famously ♥️ Miss V made her giggle and laugh a lot!

Cottage is coming to an end for another year... 
Too darn chilly and wet and windy!
And....remember I was so thrilled to get a new fridge and stove last Spring???

Well...

My third stove will be delivered this Friday!!!
Two others were faulty!!! What an ordeal this has been...let me tell you...
The squeaky wheel gets the grease for sure...
Hopefully the third is the charm...

We also have to have a big old Maple tree removed soon...:o(
I have a picture of it near the end of the post...
Certainly a big space will be created by it s absence...but it has become a dangerous situation...so he needs to go...

Our drives to and from the cottage are delightful...
I love to capture a few pics every trip...
Love the barns!!

 

I made a Key Lime Pie again for Thanksgiving...
Boyfriends favorite...and soooooo delish!!


Hope you are all well...

      The weather has been incredibly strange everywhere...

           Michael sure did a number on the Gulf of Mexico...

                 That is the area we are heading to in February 😳

                      A new adventure awaits us!!

                            See you soon....

                                  Cheers!  :o)

Oh What A Summer It Was!.....






























Hello everyone....

Geesh...how do I let so much time slip between posts...

Summer is over...and Fall is in full swing here in Southern Ontario...

Temps have cooled considerably...and lots of rain expected over the next few days...

A crazy wild windstorm blew through over the weekend...

Everything has survived...although the Ottawa area was hit with a Tornado, and it is in quite a state...my thoughts go out to anyone there...

My sweet Granddaughters are growing in leaps and bounds...

Miss Nora is already over 9 months old...crawling everywhere!!! 

Miss V is a big girl in Grade 1 now...

Where does the time go????

It seems I used to take a few pics...load them up...do a post...

Now....I have SOOOOO many gorgeous photos...and I am lucky if I post once a month....

I really should remedy that...hahaha!!! How many times have I said that before!!! 

I have a lot of you, over on IG...very faithful followers...and I thank you all for that ...much appreciated...

I hope you are all well...

         See you soon....PROMISE!!!

                  Cheers!   :o)
