The Weekend....Part 3...Saved The Best For Last♥️

The day started out beautifully...

Breakfast on the sunporch...coffee and crumpets with my Peach Jam...

Miss V and her Mom arrived around 11:30am...

Miss v stayed with me...My boyfriend and Erika went to town...

We headed down to the beach, with her snappy water shoes I bought her!!








After a workout of throwing stones...

Filling the bucket with stones...

And finding 2 pieces of beach glass...

Miss V and I settled on the beach deck...

Under the umbrella...

Apple slices and grapes...

Nice cold drink...

Waiting for Mommy and Papa to return...

To say the least...

It was very low key...

Relaxing in the warm weekend weather...

And no darn wind!!


Erika and Miss V posed in the new hammock...

It is very wiggly!!

Uncle Ryan got in...that was hilarious!!

But...no pictures..:o(


My son-in-law Jeff was kept very busy!!

He installed a Bee House that he and Lissa gave me...

Such a cool idea!! It is to be removed in the Fall...

Hopefuly we get lots of Bees!!

He also assembled the shelving unit for the kitchen, that I had purchased at IKEA...

Thanks Jeff!!



Auntie Lissa and Miss V had fun playing hide-and-seek in the towels on the line...



Lissa and Jeff also brought me this HUGE basket of gorgeous yellow Begonias!!

And a new bird feeder... promised to be "Red Proof"...I brought it home!!

So far...so good...he cannot get into it!!






Ryan and Anna brought me this gorgeous tin planter...

Bird feeder and gardening gloves...

All..a beautiful shade of Aqua...

Love these!!

Unfortunately no pictures of them this trip...

Too busy having fun!!



Erika and Miss V donated to the Humane Society in my name...

To feed newborn kittens...

How sweet is that?




My favorite boyfriend gave me a supply of my perfume...and assorted goodies from Clinique...love their products...



I was spoiled rotten...

Didn't even have to cook!!

They all brought lots of snackies to munch on...

They all went home, and my boyfriend and I went to the local Fish Restaurant for a delicious meal...





The best of all...

Erika took this pic of Miss V...

Napping in Nana and Papas cottage bed...

She was thrilled!!

And...she got the nap in, before her Aunts and Uncles arrived♥️



Hope you are all having a great day...

Rather chilly here...and of course windy...no sun...blah!!

We took Miss V out for lunch to Swiss Chalet...

She had chicken and fries and sauce!!  Very happy about that!!

Napping...so I am getting this post done...

               Enjoy the rest of your day...

                           Cheers!  :o)

    2. Did you know that deep and shallow go hand in hand? Like love and hate? Does that make me multi-layered? ;)

    1. Yes...fresh....I have been wearing it for 30 years...people always ask me what I am wearing!
      Sometimes....they ask me to write down the name for them!
      You are so right Monique...who better than family?
      I love that photo of her sleeping♥️
      We thought about tearing down the cottage, and build a brand new house, and move there...
      We even had a builder out, and looked into some permits....but...it was not to be....
      A wee bit too remote for us....and the Lake can be a monster in Winter...
      We love it for what it is...a 3 season get away....

    2. And you are right;)
      A getaway place is great..
      I used to have a sign for our little getaway place..that a local artist made..

      she has made a few for here..and there..
      For there it said :Away From It All..
      I gave it back to her when we sold ..

      This makes you enjoy it even more..and I love the old charm.
