I had an unintended blogging break….. Sometimes life just takes priority over blogging. I did some heavy duty gardening and took some great pictures with the intent of posting right away. But then my computer had a little watering accident, I thought I might need a new laptop which was not on my list of new purchases this summer. Luckily a few days with the battery drying or airing out seems to have revive it. Yeah!!! I hope my luck holds and it remains working throughout the summer.
Next my blogging partner daughter, Andrea was in from New York City for a visit over the holiday week. It is always wonderful to have her here, we enjoyed the beach, had friends over for a cookout, went antiquing and tried our hand at stand up paddle boarding. If you have not heard of SUP (stand up paddle boarding) visualize a board like a surf board and oars like a kayak. You are on the water carefully stand up and balancing on the board and using the oars to move you across the water. Luckily Andrea and I both do yoga and have good balancing skills. My hubby Cottage Guy found it a little more challenging and ended up in the lake a few times but was a sport and got the hang of it.
A few of my snaps, this one features our new white adirondack chairs, our bright pink ones finally had to be retired. I like the white ones, they look fresh.
The peonies bloomed really late this year but were still so pretty and sweet smelling.
We also had a loved one pass away, my godmother, Aunt Florence. At 91 years old she had a long and happy life, she will be missed.
