Hello Friends! I have missed writing on my little blog here. I have had the most wonderful summer so far.
This year I have been spending time in our beautiful Trout Lake. Soaking, swimming, floating dreamily....yes, life is beautiful at the lake.
I re-connected with an old friend who has the summer off and she loves the lake like I do. We spent many happy hours chatting and laughing and remembering good times. In fact, we refer to the beach as the "office" where we like to say we are busy solving world problems. And we have had some great meetings at the office I must say.
There is a family of loons that make this area of the lake their home. Every time I spot them, my heart swells with love for them. So beautiful and silently graceful as they float past us and then suddenly they dive and swim underwater for great distances. The mother and her 5 little ones displaying such love and devotion for each other.
Things have been busy in my garage as well. I have been buying and selling like never before. I am decorating a summer home for my friend with treasures found at the yard sales. Tables and chairs and fabrics for curtains....such fun seeing the delighted look on her face when I show her the latest find. Her home will be beautiful when we are done....no doubt about it. A summer place where she and her family will gather surrounded by beauty.
I shall always remember the summer of 2011 as one of relaxation and happiness. Appreciating the beauty of nature like never before. And hey, summer isn't over yet!
My creative juices are flowing too.... I have many fabulous projects coming to share with you.
Stay tuned folks!
