Time With Miss V.....๐Ÿ’š






Last Friday was a PD day for Miss V...which is great with us!! We got to have her for the whole day...a sleepover and a trip to the cottage on Saturday!!

After her bike ride with her Papa, she got busy on raking up the few leaves that were left here at home...

After that...the baking began...

We made a loaf and 6 cupcakes...she allotted one raspberry and 2 chocolate chops to each cupcake! 

After lunch, she iced one cupcake and added some sprinkles!!
 



After that, she put together a craft I had picked up for her at Michael's....a Snowman door hanger...she was very quick at making this!!

We were at the $ store, and then at the mall...Santa's Village was all set up, but no Santa yet...she also wanted to ride the escalator with me...
 

Friday night we had a fire, and watched a few Christmas shows...

In the morning, we got ready, and headed out to the cottage to meet Uncle Ryan, and put up the last porch shutter...the weather was 10c, but very dark and damp...the beach was quite eroded, from the brisk winds last week...Miss V tried to make a sand castle, but the sand was full of pebbles and kinda soggy!!
She does love the beach though!!
 




As you can see above, all of the Maple leaves are down...looks pretty bare, eh??

But...the Birch I planted at the road side, is still looking pretty fine with her yellow leaves hanging on...
 

I was lucky enough to find 2 treasures on the beach that day...

A very large piece of blue beach glass...

And a heart shaped stone...

 





The Milkweed on the beach, was putting on a great show...

Tiny rain droplets on the silk...

Love finding these to photograph...

For some reason, I did not have as many volunteers on the beach this year... 


The sun tried to come out...but only peeked thru the thick clouds...






We were hardly out of the driveway, when I looked back at Miss V...๐Ÿ’“

She was out like a light for about 45 minutes...With her gloves and toasty vest on...such a sweetie...love when they get all tired out from running around and having fun...

We delivered her home safely to her Mommy...they were happy to see each other ๐Ÿ’˜ 




Hope you are all well...enjoying the last of Fall...and to my American friends, hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend...I am sure you are all decorating for Christmas now!! I must get started myself...think I will start with my staircase...that always gets me in the spirit...

I have not done any shopping...just been crocheting a few things for the kids... 

Lots of time....right??? hahaha!!

Enjoy the rest of your week...

                 Cheers!   :o)

  5. Loved seeing the cottage in the fall. So different from the beauty of the summer, fall has its own beauty. Miss V had a busy day. No wonder she fell asleep in the car. So sweet.

  6. What a fun long weekend V had with you! Love the 2 chips and one raspberry...haha...looks like little faces!
    Kind of warm here...tree up but that's it....although I'm almost done with the shopping. I started a few weeks ago to get that out of the way. Need to start my annual big gift basket order and some party planning. Can't believe December is here...crazy, crazy! T & L are coming for a week before Christmas so I need to get my rear in gear and have things done before then...goodness! haha..... Wish I could crochet....looks so fun!

  10. How cute, Miss V is so organised she counts out the chocolate drops. She will be a great cook. The beach treasures are so sweet and I'm glad you can still go to the cottage as the weather gets cold. Yellow beech tree is soooo pretty. Now I am in competition with you for a short time: yesterday we rode the escalators with Mr Four, and today he feel asleep on the way home after a great time visiting the dinosaurs at the museum. We are loving it!

  13. Miss V looks so sweet in action and in repose. Love her clothes.
    What a beautiful, big piece of beach glass. And the heart... aw.
    Don't think there will be decorating for me this year, for a number of reasons, but I hope to enjoy other homes that I'm invited to.
    Love that photo of the cottage and the maple silhouettes. Beautiful.

  18. Hey Linda! We had a good Thanksgiving Day, but lost two family members the day before. It was a sad time. Funeral Saturday, Memorial Service Monday.

    I haven't started decorating yet, but hopefully by this weekend for sure. I love that last photo of Miss V. She looks exhausted. What did you do to her? HaHa!
