Good Evening, my dears..
I expect you thought I was taking a trip or something as I have not posted on here for a bit but alas I have just not been very creative in the blogging department..
We have been enjoying our summer, mostly..
The weather has finally turned summerlike for the past several weeks and it has been extremely hot up home so we are blessed to be here by the Bay..
The temps are warm but the breeze keeps it from stifling, if you know what I mean..
Last week we enjoyed the company of some very dear and long time friends..
They even brought chocolate cake and such..
They had their trailers over at the camp ground and dropped by most days..
So nice to have friends who just pick up where we left off and we just kept on going.. smile..
Of course, it is pickle time and Terry and I did up 100 pounds of cucumbers...
Lots of mustard, of course and these below are a new recipe I am trying..
One of my all time favorite spices..
I think I will like them but not dear hubby..
Bread and Butter are more his style..
I also tried some Curry ones but I do not think they will be a success..
They all floated to the top for some reason.. Oh well..
A little Shamrock plant growing on the old kitchen window sill..
A couple of days ago we went home as I had to go to the doctor..
Having a few knee problems which is the pits...
Old age has a few negative factors, shall we say.. smile..
I had wanted to go home around about way so we did..
Here are a few pics for you of good old New Brunswick..
This was through Hampton, Belleisle and Sussex..
Such beautiful cottage country and lovely farms...
While we were home we went to check out that all was well at the farm and Terry took a little walk back to the brook..
I tried to catch a pic of him climbing that fence but he was too fast for me.. grin..
Slept in our waterbed for a couple of nights and it was lovely but we headed back here to the cottage today...
It was rainy when we started out but by the time we did a bit of shopping and such it was sunny here and much cooler then home..
I see our view of the bay is changing..
Notice the Goldenrod growing there..
Fall is on it's way, I guess..
I think this was one of the shortest summers in history since we bought the cottage 20 years ago..
Seems like it anyway..
The Spring was so rainy and cold and we were late getting here..
Yada yada yada..
I do love Fall but am not looking forward to Winter..
I was listening to a Christian radio station on my way home from the doctor's yesterday and the speaker was talking about the world and all of the nasty situations that are going on ..
Then he said but we can wake up with JOY in our hearts because we have Christ living there and no matter what comes or goes He remains the same..
It was such a lovely reminder of something that I know but I need to make a deliberate decision to start my day each morning with JOY in my heart ...
Bad knee or not.. grin..
God bless you sweet readers..
I appreciate each and everyone of you...
I left the recipe such as it was for the soup on the last post in the comments section..
Thanks for visiting and sending hugs your way..
