Well, it’s been a while hasn’t it? I guess summer is getting to me a little bit! These warm days and nights are just heaven when you are used to so many long months of winter. We were actually on vacation for the past two weeks. We headed down to my parents home in TN on the lake for the 4th of July and then some. It is just heaven there and a ton of fun! We live so far from all of our family, it is always nice to be able to see them! Lots of lazy pool days and days spent out on the boats and sea doos Not to mention all of the lovely cocktail hours! LOL! The kids had a blast enjoying cookies for breakfast and ice cream for lunch (Nana and Papa…LOL!). It all went by so fast! I can’t believe we’re back to the grind on Monday!
We learned that Sarah is a speed demon! She could not go fast enough on the sea doos! She loved it! She also learned how to dive! I can’t believe what a great swimmer she is becoming! Thanks in large part to Rob’s patience! Grant on the other hand, we learned, likes to take things at a much slower pace! LOL!
Our gardens here were busy while we were away! WOW! It’s like the plants up here in the tundra know they only have a short time to get ‘er done! LOL! The next week will be full of weeding, pruning and dividing. Any minute I’ll be eating so many tomatoes and other veggies from our garden I’ll be over them! Can’t wait!
I’m hoping all of that fresh air and water is going to inspire some cool new jems! I did decide that I am really going to revamp my shops in the coming days and weeks. I have GOT to figure out my photos and I just want to clean up the shops a bit so be sure to stay tuned! Have so much catching up and yard work it’s not even funny but I’ll be back to my regular blogging later this week for sure! Pictures coming asap too! Hope everyone is still smiling and hope you enjoyed your 4th too!
