I Am Still Here!!!!








Hi everyone!!!!

I have been absent for a long time!!!

Lots going on...

Lots of cottage trips...

Family wedding...

And of course...

The return of our Miss V 💛💙💜💚 



She was here for the day last Friday...

She could hardly wait to get into the pool!!!

Her swimming skills have greatly improved since her trip to Florida!! 

And she is as brown as a little berry!!!!

She had asked if I would buy her this cute Panda..."Ming"...for her birthday...

Needless to say...she was thrilled!!!

5 years old...my oh my...where does the time go???

And...some very exciting news...My Son and DIL are expecting their first baby in December...we are all so excited...and Miss V can't wait for her cousin...
 

 Hope you are all well...

Enjoying this hot rainy Summer!!

I think we are heading back to the cottage on Monday...as we have an appt on Thursday morning back here at home...

For those of you who wrote me and asked if I was ok...thanks so much for thinking of me!!

           Have a great week...

                  See you soon.....

                         Cheers!  :o)

  5. So I'm not the only one lagging behind!!!!!

    Congratulations on the great news and all the best to your son and his wife! Another grandchild in the family is a beautiful thing. Miss V is going to be the BEST cousin ever. And she looks cute as a bug in these pics.

    Your flowers are looking lovely. In this heat and with so many days of rain, I'm enjoying the little bit of time I can get outdoors.

    Have fun at your cottage. I'm on my way back to mine on Wednesday and can then stay put until the 12th. Yay!

  7. Great to see you back in action Linda, and so much good family news. Congrats on the new grandchild-to-be, and to Little Miss V, turning five already. So she is just four months older than our youngest grandson (little Canadian). We are getting excited and counting the weeks until we fly over there later in the year. I love that hanging driftwood arrangement, no doubt made by your own fair hands. You are so talented with your crafting. Happy Days.

    1. HI Patricia...
      Yes...I did make the hanging!!! Gathered some driftwood from our beach, and got the boyfriend to drill holes for me!!! I love the way it turned out...I have made another...most likely my girls will both get one!
      Christmas will be here before you know it!!! Hope it is a bit snowy for you when you come...

  12. Hi Linda, not the same in Blogland without you, glad you are.
    LOL . . . I was going to mention synconised swimming . . . she looks just like them in that shot, without the silly forced smile they always have, of course.
    I am delighted about the fantastic news about the forthcoming addition to the clan. Many congratulations to son and daughter in law. So you will soon be a 'double Nana'.
    Beautiful shots you took, yet again.
    The one with the chair facing the waves has character and one wonders where the person is who soetimes sits there. Maybe painting her toenails, looking for her flip flops, gone for a swim, cooking a meal perhaps . . :)
