Hello There...How Have You Been??

Hello everyone!!!

Hope you are all well, and enjoying this weather!!! 

Today is a bit blustery here at home, but the hotter temps of last week are gone for awhile...

We have been spending quality time at the cottage...picking our days, here and much nicer to enjoy the great weather, and not worry about rain at the cottage.

 I would MUCH rather be here at home in that kind of weather!! 

We got the sunporch all opened up and cleaned...

Furniture outside all cleaned up... 

My Annual baskets are planted up...

Hoping they got some rain last night, as we had a great rainstorm here at home.

With the pool open here now, we need to keep at it, as the keys are falling from 4 big Maple trees...1 in our yard, and 3 beside and behind!! 

We got in a few bonfires at the cottage, and my boyfriend did an excellent job cleaning up all that mess from the Winter storms. 

The Orioles are hopefully nesting in one of our trees, and we have a few pair of Swallows in a few bird houses up near the cottage... 

We do have a Wren nesting as well, but I have failed to get a shot of her yet...
She was giving my boyfriend heck the other day, as he was too close to her wee house! hahaha!! 

At home here, I had my first Lilac blooms, on a small bush I brought home from the cottage...

And my White Peonies are already done  :o(  ....

I have 2 other bushes of Peonies...Pale Pink and Hot Pink...

The hot Pink bush, has only 5 buds on it!! Wonder if the Spring was too harsh for her...she is usually loaded with buds!! 

I think they may open perhaps I will cut them, and take them with me to the cottage on Wednesday...:o)


Last Friday was a PD day for Miss V...and we asked if she could have a sleepover with us...

She arrived at 7:30 am...and of course her Papa had heated the pool for her, so she was raring to go!!! We got her to wait til 9:30 or so...she amused herself with her Ipad...playing spelling games!!

We had brought her some goggles from FLorida, and she liked them, but she still had to hold her nose!!

When we went out for lunch, we got her another pair, that covered her nose...I told her she had to not breath into it, as it will go foggy...she looked so cute in both pairs!!!! And......had a ball being a mermaid for hours!!! 


My other sweetie...Miss already over 6 months old!!!

Her mom and dad send me photos, as we don't get to see them as often as we would like... 

Isn't she a dollie???? ♥️♥️♥️♥️

And look at those blue eyes??? Just like her Daddy... 



                                                            HA HA HA!!!!!

During that heat wave, I made  a lovely meatless dinner....YUMMO!!!


Okay...that's it from me...up to the minute...:o)

       So easy being on IG...this post took me HOURS!!!

          Finding the pics...editing...posting...writing...I am exhausted! hahaha!!!

             Have a great week everyone...

                     See you soon...

                            Cheers!  :o)

    1. Oh my dear Lynne...such lovely kind words....thanks so much💕
      Posting a blog is hard work,eh?
      Enjoy your week my friend...

  5. It was nice reading a post from you. I love orioles!! Miss V is hilarious in her goggles that go over her nose (with linda printed right in the middle!). I have no peonies blooming yet, but then, I don't have white ones. Soft pink is coming soon, I hope. It sure was a change in temperature today, wasn't it? That picture of Miss Nora propped up and smiling made me smile! How much she's grown since we first saw her!! -Jenn

    1. Hi Jenn...that made us laugh too! So funny...but, they did the trick for her!
      Yes....and today is even cooler! Geesh....was that Summer already? 😳
      Nora is coming along well...can’t wait to see her again...

  6. I love catching up, Linda. Sounds like you have a lot of the same situations as far as what is happening at your lake and at home. Geesh--it gets confusing and overwhelming.

    I love the pics of Miss V,,,that look of concentration on her face while reading. She is going to be very smart, I'm sure. Nora is a doll, she is as precious as a little baby bird. I know she must have you cuddling her at every occasion!

    I'm getting into the swing of summer slowly. Still, it feels winter turned to summer in May, so I'm not fretting. :)

    Love to you,

    Jane x

    1. Sometimes I don’t know if I’m coming or going! It sure is a lot of work! But.....worth all the effort.
      So happy that you are healing....have a great week Jane! ❣️

  7. Your latest granddaughter is a little cutie too - grandchildren are such a continually delight - happy summer days to you and your family Linda.

    1. Hey nice of you to pop in!
