Summer in Full Swing!

It's official!
Summer has arrived in SW Ontario.
It has been sweltering hot, the Spring flowers have bloomed
and are long gone.
The vegetable garden thrives and we've harvested our
first meal of lettuce.

So much has happened in the last few weeks/month.

Celebrated 45 years with this guy farmer!!!

I had fun sewing up a fishy little "geranium" dress for a certain sweet grandgirlie:


She's growing like a weed ...


And is the best big sister ever!


Spectacular sunsets and food with dear friends
at Inverhuron Provincial Park on our favourite lake Huron!


Even enjoyed a wonderful afternoon on the Inverhuron beach with 
these special people who came for a quick visit...


We baked a few cookies (with sprinkles of course).


And we finally put the finishing touches on our kitchen update!
The electrical is done and now we can just enjoy it.
Here are some before and after pictures ...

Old counter top but with new gas (propane) stove. No back splash.


New countertops and island installed.



Backsplash tile installed.


Finally - new lights and electrical installed - 7 months in the making!


My new favourite blogging spot!


Meanwhile, the spare bed is gathering clothing once again
for an upcoming Alaskan adventure.
What does one pack for every kind of weather possible???





Till next time ...... how is your summer shaping up so far? Have you done an Alaskan cruise and what advice do you have to pass along?




Two Months

Two months ago we made a very big move ... from our beloved farm of 41 years to the lovely suburbs of beautiful Stratford, Ontario. A dream ...
