Summer In Review
Summer is winding down but we've been fortunate enough to enjoy an unusual heat spell in the past week with temperatures around 29C (85F) - just my style! Lots of time in and around the lake. Today I was downloading and looking back on photos from the past few months and thought I'd share some. We've had lot of company, I've taken three trips, done lots of catering, gone in the farmers markets, spent time with friends, been out in the boat and to the beach, and done plenty of lounging around outside. It's been blissful!
A trip to the beach one afternoon with girl friends.
A hike in the woods.
I took two trips to the community north of here where my man is stationed as a police officer....
... its a northern paradise up there!
With gorgeous sunsets!
I saw an old childhood friend and her sweet little baby.
I enjoyed heaps of watermelon lemonade...
... And little picnics at the beach. I made and ate raw gazpacho countless times. It went great with dehydrated crackers.
Enjoyed my lake - the view to the west...
And a view to the east.
I celebrated my birthday last week with friends and family. For the first time in years I had a cooked cake - chocolate beet cake (made by my mom) with raw vanilla ice cream.
On one of the rare rainy days this summer, we lit a fire in the wood stove.
Gorgeous butterfly - photo taken by my dad.
We fed Miss Ducky today. She comes around a lot.
What fun things did you get up to this summer? Have a great weekend!
