The last time I wrote, we had just arrived back from our Escapee chapter rally in Kingston. After a somewhat hectic week, it was a welcome reprise to do nothing but that is not usually in the cards. We still go out and attempt to find some geocaches – not too successful lately but not discouraged, we`re learning. We`re also looking for a new venue to get our kayak wet again, it`s been a long time since we were on the water.
Barb has been busy with the various quilt projects she has underway. She follows several other quilter`s blogs and picks projects from there to work on. She has finished one project that she joined from the Carol Doak`s site. It turned out beautiful and the colours are magnificent as she snuggles under it on the left. Barb also started a hand embroidery project featuring silhouette figures of Dr. Who. This is all hand work and she has turned the 1st six into a table runner. Way to go Barb!
Last season, we picked up an inexpensive patio set to adorn our small but cute site. Late in the year, we had a very quick storm come through and damaged our awning and knocked over the umbrella and glass table. Yes, you guessed it, the umbrella pinched the table and it shattered like an auto window, thousands of glass pieces everywhere. We kept the legs with the intention of building a wood top similar to our small camp table but when we priced out the wood, we ended up picking up a plastic table for half the price of wood! It seemed like a good idea at the time, more to come on that decision later.
We have been out on the bikes and always take time to smell the flowers along the way. This is a great area for bike and walking trails. We also found some geocaches nearby the local casino but they took some serious searching to find. Some geocachers find some unique places to hide their caches.
Our youngest daughter had us over for a belated father`s day luncheon. Dean & I took it easy on the deck while the ladies made lunch. Dean had to fire up and work the grill and I continued to hold down the lawn chair. I do enjoy other`s doing the work, somehow the food tastes better!
