A Busy Week..

My brother visited from Mississippi and we indulged in clams and lobster several times. 
My brother is 13 years younger than I am but is having mysterious health issues. I do hope he gets to the bottom of them as they are getting bad. He has numbness in his legs and feet and they have no idea why. He has had all the tests and still nothing. My heart breaks for him.... 

I also did not take many pictures so not much to share.
We had a tree company come in and take down 4 huge oaks that were growing out of one trunk. After they were down we saw the rot in the trunk of the one leaning over the house. But it kills my heart to see them gone. We also had our house painted and trex decking on the back deck. It all needed to be done but oh my acing check book. 
I am working some extra days in the next week not that I love it but I am headed to Star Island in a week and a half for some R and R.
Have a great week!

Wrapping Up Another Week...

Today I went to the dump with my husband I haven't been in a while so it was nice to shop the swap shop.
Yes my dump has a lovely newish building that has a large room with shelves all around you can put things that someone else may want. Or you can shop it yourself (free) and as our dump attendant
always says they they have a great return policy.

I found some wonderful books! Getting ready to tuck in for those long winter nights ugh!

I found these on my walk the other day. Shades of what is to come.

And while weeding my garden I found this guy.
I know there is a lot of old folk lore around these guys. If they are super fuzzy it means lots of snow and cold. Not sure what he is saying for the winter to come...

But my fairy roses are on their second bloom this year and as you can see by the buds they are going to be blooming for awhile yet.

We are in for a hot week I do not like the humidity but this too shall pass.
Have a great week everyone!

Sweet B went to fairy night again this year. I made her head piece from things she picked in the yard.

And then you go around and meet all the fairies. This was a flower fairy and each fairy gives you a gift so you can make your own fairy house at home.

And there are a lot of fairies! they did a group shot of all the working fairies a very sweet groupl

Then Sat bright and early I headed for Maine and my sweet friends place at the beach. The weather couldn't have been better.

Or the skies prettier....

Or the food yummier! yes that is steamers in the back yummm!

She also gave me the sweetest birthday gifts these are little canning jars with the flower frog on the top!

And lovely earrings does she know me or what???

We also went thrifting and I found this pair of pottery hand crafted candle holders.

I just love them! 6.00 what a buy. Well the weekend is coming to an end and on to another week. 

I love august because the days can be very hot but it always cools down at night for good sleeping. 
Have a wonderful week.

A Wonderful Birthday!

Husband wanted to take me to brunch but I decided a walk and breakfast at home would be best..

Then in the afternoon we went for a paddle on the sweetest little pond and saw the baby loon following it's mother. 

I had birthday calls and emails, with lots happening on facebook it makes me very thankful for family and friends. Wed night is fairy night at a local garden center. Sweet B is going to be a fairy again. So we will have my birthday dinner before we fly off for fairy night...

I dug out another pattern to work on that needs to be done before Halloween. I am enjoying it very much and it is a good change from the stair risers.

August has come in with wonderful weather. Warm days, cool breezy nights my kind of weather.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
