Lots of Bits & Bobs....













Where has August gone???
Seems like Summer just got started, and now we are winding down the month...

So much going on...

Check out Miss V with her first missing tooth!!!!!

Hopefully the pics will tell my story for me!!

The cupcake holders were a very lovely gift from the lovely MONIQUE over at www.latabledenana.blogspot...

She sent them to me...along with the most beautiful Garlic head that you have ever seen!!! I am to plant the Garlic in the Fall... 

Miss V LOVED doing her cupcakes in the sweet bear molds...Thank you so much dear Monique...you are truly one of the most generous and loving people I have "met" here in blogland...♥️  If you have not checked out her blog...please do...she is an amazing photographer...gardener...baker...painter...and she has chickens too!!!!

Now....back to more photos.... 



















Last week...I had 2 sets of guests at the cottage...

I always love getting the dining table ready for our meals together...

Old neighbours of ours visited on Thursday for the day and dinner...

It poured rain!!!

Luckily we were safe and dry on the sunporch!!

A childhood friend and her hubby came on Friday for a sleepover...we had the best time...a bit windy, but we found our cozy spots to chat and reminisce... We had visited their lovely home on a Lake near Peterborough...I posted about it...gorgeous spot!!

They thoroughly enjoyed sleeping with the windows open, and listening to the waves!! Said it was like being at the Ocean.... 

I have included a few different angles of the sunporch...dressed and ready!! 

 




 I was fortunate enough to FINALLY capture a pic of a Kingfisher...

This was truly exciting!!




Hope you are all well...and enjoying this crazy weather!!!

It has been up and down like a yoyo...hot and humid...stormy...sunny!!

Not really sure if I like the hot and humid too much...kinda looking forward to cooler temps come Fall...geesh...did I just say that! hahaha!!! 

Finding it more difficult to post these days...

Loving Instagram...so quick and easy...love having most of you over there as well...Hope you don't get tired of seeing the same photos! 

Anyway...that is it for me...rainy day today...laying low...crochet hook busy...

I have finished a blanket just for Miss V for Christmas...in her fav colour...PINK!

Have a great day...and a great week...see you all soon!!

                  Cheers! :o)

Stormy Weather & A Few Pretties....













Hi everyone...

Hope you are all well and enjoying Summer...

Last weekend at the cottage, was the worst stormy weather I have ever seen there!!

The wind cranked up out of nowhere...and the heavens opened with buckets of rain! For 2 days!!! Non-stop thunder...lightning...100km winds...and RAIN!!

Saturday was very windy and rough, but managed to stay dry... 

Our beautiful sandy beach was clobbered once again...

Nothing like the fury of a Great Lake...

And of course...a few pretty flowers for you... 

          Enjoy your week...

                  Cheers!  :o)
