And then she was 5!!!
All she really wanted was a "stand" to sell something.
It was decided that she could sell popsicles
half the monies to the United Way,
saving the rest for something special.
Well, the stand was very successful and she is donating $300
to the charity and had a wonderful day on her 5th birthday.
The birthday party theme was Mini Mouse and she sported
her momma's vintage costume complete with Mini Mouse ears!
We all enjoyed pizza and mini mouse cupcakes and cookies.
And, of course, the annual ride around the block in Papa's Mustang.
Love this sweet, kind, bright and adorable little lady!!!!
Will love your forever, Will love you for Always ..
July has been full of sun and spending time outdoors in spite of Covid-19.
We had a wonderful opportunity to camp with friends in a near-by
Provincial Park on the ever beautiful Lake Huron.
The sunsets never disappoint and are always unique each and every evening!
A stray tame kitty was found and adored.
It must have been dropped off - who would do such a thing?
Our neighbours who have a litter almost the same age have adopted
him for safe keeping and kitten companionship.
He will be in good hands there!
The garden is producing well and giving us delicious
lettuce, asparagus, garlic and now the zucchini are beginning to march in!
Lock your doors!
Nothing tastes better than fresh lettuce from the garden,
dressed with cream and herbs.
|Special flavour = a chiffonade of borage leaf|
An extra bonus has been the wild raspberries that grow around
this old farm.
We've been picking them and freezing them.
I can't remember ever finding so many.
Now what shall we make with these, loaded with antioxidant, special berries?
Till next time .... stay safe as our world slowly begins to reopen and mid-summer is just around the corner. I will wear my mask, wash my hands, and isolate as much as possible to avoid a second waive! I will pray for and be kind to those who oppose reason and common sense. I will pray for my dear friend Nonie who is undergoing cancer treatment. Wisdom and discernment will be my longing for this summer of 2020! We will come through this together!
