Can You Believe It!!!





So...

When I arrived at the cottage on Friday noon...

When taking my stuff in from the car...

I asked my boyfriend...

"Did you already bring in my bag with my camera, and my crochet?"

He said "No"..."I have not seen it"...

WHAT???

"Did you put it in the car?"

"I thought I did"...

OMG!!!

I felt sick to my stomach...then I worried if I had left it in the driveway!!

I called my SIL...who stopped by the house on his way home from work...

There it was....in the foyer...just waiting to be picked up and packed...

GEESH!!!

So...my friends...no pictures from the weekend!!!

Which...for the most part...was lovely...except for a chilly breeze off the water...

When we left yesterday...it was 15*c...by the time we got home...29*c!!!

SO...my Robin friends can tell you a short story...

Do you think it is a Parent and baby....or a couple???

Teaching the ins and outs of taking a bath!!

 
Hope you all had a great weekend...

Lots of pretty Daffodil at the cottage...I made a beautiful bouquet to bring home...

BUT....surprise...surprise....I forgot them! hahaha!

Will be picking up Miss V for the day...gonna hit the park before the rain...

WITH MY CAMERA!!!

Isn't this weather fabulous...my Bamboo has grown 6 inches over the weekend...

Perhaps I should get a picture of that!!! hahaha!!

Have a great day!!

How is your weather???

                        Cheers!  :o)

  1. Sounds like something I'd do. :) Love your robin shots. I just added a bird bath this week close to the feeders. The weather was and still is amazing. I had the two grandittles, Ry and Brad out all day yesterday. We had a blast.

  4. Saw on Betsy's you ad forgotten camera ~ gosh so glad you phoned your SIL and he found it still safe . . .
    I expect you felt lost without your camera.
    I think it is a couple in the bird bath and he is complaining that she is hogging all the water and wishes they had a shower attachment fixed up.

    Glad you still had a nice time . . . :)
    What! Forgot your bouquet as well.
    Now look . . . age is my excuse, what's your's? . . . LOL

  5. I believe it. Because it's something I would do.
    I hate not having my camera when I go out. I want to take it with me to work, but I don't want to leave it in the car all day and I obviously can't be taking pictures of the residents.
    Ah, there's always today and it's a beautiful one.

  7. I know how you feel about forgetting the camera at home. It's very annoying and cell phone photos aren't always the best. It's even more frustrating when you have it ready to go and then forget it! We've had a great weekend of warm sunshine and it makes me so happy. I hope you have a wonderful week.

  9. That was nature's way of telling you to relax and enjoy the weekend without your blog buddies. :) The weather was lovely, wasn't it? Great that my BF was able to BBQ salmon for our company. Sunday, we ventured over to the Premium Outlets...whew....very busy... Enjoy little Miss Cutie today and have a good week.

  10. Forgetting my camera would make me feel sick to especially if I had left it or though I had left it outside YIKES ! I am glad it was inside and safe . I think that may be a Mr & Mrs Robin . Lovely photos of them ! The weather this weekend here was beautiful sunny and temps in the 20C range it started out a lovely day today but now it is raining and thunderstorms are possible I just love the smell and sound of a fresh spring rain and the birdies singing as it is raining ! Our Hummers and Orioles are back as are the Barn Swallows, House Wrens and Red Breasted Grosbeaks I am a happy camper now lol ! Thanks for sharing , have a good day !

  12. thank heaven you didn't leave it on the driveway! waiting to be packed!!!
    one time i drove off with my favorite pair of tennis shoes on TOP of the car.
    a man following behind me stopped at a light and motioned me over.
    he got out. handed me my tennis shoe and said the other one was still on top of the car. :D it happens.
    love the wet robin pictures! xo

    1. Ha! Good story Tammy.....I was very relieved when I knew it was safe and sound....

  13. You must have felt like you'd lost a limb without your camera.... AND crocheting. Double trouble. Ah well, at least they were safe at home.
    Cute robin pics - maybe one had already bathed in a neighbouring bath and they were scouting out a clean dunk for the other! :-)

      You feeling better?

    2. Sadly, no, this one has me by the grips. Haven't been this sick in years. I appreciate you asking. ♥
      I know you don't like taking pics on your cell, but if that's all you have you'd be surprised how well they sometimes turn out. At one point I had almost abandoned my camera in place of my cell. I would like to get a new camera, though, and start experimenting and perhaps have a little more flexibility. What do you own?

      Delete
    3. Hope you feel better soon....
      I wouldn't even know how to get the pictures out of my phone, to my computer!
      I only have a phone for emergencies....
      My boyfriend took a few pics on his BB, and apparently emailed to me....but they disappeared! Hahaha!
      Take care of yourself!
      Are you on Instagram?

      Delete
    4. Thanks. No, I'm not on Instagram. It's very easy to "sync" your phone to your computer and copy over whatever you wish to. It's just a matter of doing it a few times to get the hang of it. But I find that's the case for anything.

    2. I hope the heck not. I'm so into this sunshine.

      We had to put the air in. Which is good because not a few days before, the heat was on.

      PS: I have to go gluten-free (among other things), for awhile. But I'm up for the fun of it.

    3. Good luck with the gluten-free!

    4. I don't eat that much of it and I don't eat any processed foods, so for me, this is not hard. I would gladly give up any food, if needed.

      And remember, many of my bakes are already gf, sf, df, ef. The difference now is it ALLLLLLL will be during the new testing period.

    5. Is there any food you would miss, if you had to remove it forever?

      I used to say cream cheese, but something changed during the dairy test, and after all these months, I no longer like the taste.

    6. Potatoes......of every description

    7. That is a good one. Potatoes (any kind), are one of my
      most favorite foods. Great minds and all that.

      Happy Almost Weekend.

  16. I hate that sinking feeling..
    and my cameras can bring that on..
    a glitch..a drop.. oy..
    my fave point and shoot was dropped 2 Junes ago..
    Can't get another..it was too old a model..
    got a replacement..but it doesn't match that baby.

    The wind here today is FIERCE..we will get a storm I think..but you cannot go from frigid to 100 F w/out some excitement..

    ReplyDelete

  17. Yes....you understand !
    A drop! Oy....I have done that ridiculous thing too!
    Shutter won't close.....or won't open......YIKES!
    We had 5 drops of rain....I wanted more!

  18. I can imagine just how you felt about the camera, but thank goodness it was found for you. My camera attaches to my handbag and I never go anywhere without that so the cameral is normally always by my side.
