Summer Retreat

 
Every summer we head up to "the cottage" aka "summer home", or "cabin". This year, a brand new retreat, only 3 hours from home, as opposed to the past year's 6 hour journey.
 
This gorgeous river front home is on the Crowe River, near Havelock Ontario.
 
We re looking forward to spending our time here, with Beep, our granddaughter on the "lazy river".
 
 
 
 
 


 
 
Lots of scenery for Beep and I to paint!
 
Cheers... see you in September!

Spring In My Yard

I always look forward to seeing the return of two very special birds that visit my feeders in the spring.
 
They don't stay long, just grabbing a nibble on the way to their summer homes. 
 
 
Rose-breasted Grosbeak (male)


 
Baltimore Orioles


Juvenile
 

Male


And, I always enjoy the flowering of my Aquilegia Canadensis.

Adventures Ahead

Going shopping this weekend for one of these. Not the majority's choice, but we have always marched to the beat of a different drummer.

 
Jeep Patriot
 
We just LOVE the "squareness" of this vehicle.

Battling The MonSter

Oh...MS you MonSter. 

A nasty relapse over the past few weeks. BUT, I finished a painting, despite the blurred vision, pain, and intention tremors.

I am pleased with it!
