Summer's End - Hiatus

Summer is almost over!
As I've said before, "time flies when you are having fun".
And fun is exactly what my granddaughter and I have had this summer.
It's been a joy for me, to spend every day with my sweet Beep.
 
A couple "end of summer celebration" photos.
 
 "Lets' all go to the Dairy Queen".
 
A lot of people take "selfies", Beep and I take "each others".
 
We are usually hitting the road this time of year, making our way up to cottage country for a vacation. Plans had to be changed this summer, due to my health issues. We will be "vacationing" at home.
 
A blast from the past (vacation), not so long ago.
 
photo by Hubbers...
who rarely picks up a camera, but when he does, it's more often than not, to take a pic of me taking pics. He grabs the point and shoot camera from my bag, and randomly snaps a few. I am always surprised when I load the photos from that camera to the computer, and more often than not, he has captured more beauty than he intended, and I am not referring to me!

I am taking a blogging break,
well actually, I am taking a break from most things...
other than resting, recuperating and rejuvenating.
 
Until next time...
CHEERS!

Rest up and feel better soon. I think your husband captured exactly the beauty he intended to (You). And the background is lovely too.

Take care, take it easy. It is smart to know your body and mind and when they need complete R&R.

I as with others I'm sure...have really enjoyed your summer with your granddaughter.

Enjoy your time of relaxation. And a vacation at home isn't so bad!! There is always something to do or see close by!!!

By the way...DIary Queen? [kidding] I think this is a test to see if we're paying attention to your spell check.
