Working hard to change up the front gardens…note Jen’s great idea…instead of using newspapers, we could recycle the recycleables and use the cereal boxes, tea boxes, cookies boxes,all that flimsy cardboard, on top of the grass and under the fresh soil. Image 1

Lovely hot day in Wolfville for this job.. by late afternoon we had two sides done. By then we’d recruited Frank, Will and Forest. I do love a project, and so do the others, which is fantastic!!

IMG_2164Hanging out with a “youngster”!  Dee turned 55, and Leslie and I are official seniors, but Brenda is pushing in behind us. Dee, she just wants to have fun. Champagne in the hot afternoon sun…that worked for all of us. Never too old for that. Good time.

Image 5The wonderful world of Skype brought us the L.A. clan for a Father’s Day hello. They were all going off swimming in an outdoor pool…too chilly here for that, but great that they can do it, and especially great that they let us see their sweet faces first.

IMG_2126Andrea’s baby shower today, and the SUN came out.  And oh happy day, Drea loves the crib quilt I made for her. Wonderful time.

Image 1Clearly there is a baby just eager to be born…a few more weeks, sweetie.

IMG_2104I love this of me with MY baby, Drea.  And I think I’ll always wear heels while Drea wears flats.

IMG_2100I’m sparing you the other side, the eye, the back end…but you get the picture..Daisy is so tall that walking around with this cone makes her bump into and under everything. Very unsettling for her…but each day is better. Dogs are so stoic…I’d be complaining!  this is in the category of “what my dog taught me”…I’m listening, Daisy.

IMG_2082A man’s work is never done. Frank has made a fresh start on the counter surface..first with a cabinet scraper, now with frequent oiling. I can think of more jobs to be done, but Frank’s always one step ahead of me, doing something productive, before I can get my request in. That’s why a man’s work is never done.

IMG_2077Another overcast rainy day. As Daisy was in surgery today, and now home, recovering from the removal of  five “growths”, it seemed fitting. Sunshine can sometimes be so confusing. Rain and fog and mist can sometimes be so calming.

IMG_2079Daisy wants in…it’s too cold outside, but….summer is due to be here on June 21st.  Can’t wait.
