A cold, wet day.

The last two days have been rainy/foggy/cold. 50 degrees cold. In June. Tsk. Although, this has given me an opportunity to take some different pictures than what I usually take. Here they are folks!

First one was some rain droplets on a lily-of-the-valley leaf. ((I love macro photography!))

Second one is a spider web on our deck.

Must go, Mom just got home from a visit and I'm done with waiting for things to load. We're on Dial-Up so everything takes forever. It's sometimes a good idea to have a book handy when waiting.....

I'm thinking that this blog is going to end up being more of a photography place. Things remain busy around here, and I haven't time to sit down and write a long post. :-(

So, here is one picture:

And #2:

In other news, Mom and I went to D---- yesterday, I drove all the way there! (It's about a half hour away) :-) Yay! I did fairly well, although apparently everyone speeds on one part and i was going about the speed limit so there were quite a lineup of cars behind me. When it turned to 2 lanes everyone scooted over and I had the whole left lane to myself! lol

Finished planting my garden, it was actually hot out today! The rest of the state/country is broiling, and since we're close to Lake Superior (about 2 blocks away) it doesn't get near as warm. But I'm currently wearing a t-shirt and capris and loving it!

A picture I took earlier

This morning I took my camera (which I bought last fall and am still in love/ in awe of it) outside to snap some shots in the garden. Enclosed is one of the inside of a tulip:

And the Time has Gone........ Where?

First as a disclaimer, my sister and nieces are over right now so things may be a little dis-jointed in this post.

We'll be starting with today and working our way back.

Day #5 (I think) of homeschooling. It went well, we made banana bread, and worked on letters and numbers for a while. She's doing really well with her learning, she's so eager! Mom came up with the clever idea of having her trace the letter/number instead of trying to do just by looking and trying to copy. And then Morgan and Kelli came over so the schooling kind of went kaput. Ah, well.
Otherwise, my day was spent doing dishes, walking the dog, general pickup, fabric cutting, and a little of going through my stuff. Do you ever have that urge to just get rid of a whole bunch of stuff, like you have WAY too much? I think most everyone does.....

Yesterday afternoon Mom and I went up to my Grandma's house to help her go through some of her things. Mom tackled a few boxes of books, deciding which one's were not worth keeping, and Grandma and I went through some fabric; She gave me a bunch of scraps with some bigger chunks thrown in for good measure.

Wednesday Isabelle came over. I think we planted some potatoes, what that the day I gave her a wheelbarrow ride? I believe so.

Tuesday I had my cardiologist appointment, the doctor was really nice, and quite thorough. He decided to be on the safe side and have me wear a cardio-net monitor for TWENTY DAYS. I've had a Holiter monitor for 48 hours, and it's not very much fun. Actually, the worst part of it is having to sleep on my back. I don't think they'll find anything, I've been feeling fine for a couple months now.

Monday is beyond memory. Things have been so busy, I don't know if they'll be slowing down anytime soon either. Not that that's a bad thing, but it might be nice to just have a day off without anything that has to be done. Welcome to life, eh?

Tonight we're having "Bumstead" sandwiches for dinner. :D Such a treat.

For closing, here is a picture of Isabelle, Kelli, and Poppy.
