Busy Summer




I have not disappeared.  Summer has just been flying by.  I can't believe I haven't posted in almost 10 months.  I had worked on a gift that I can share after this weekend.  Yay!  The multi-colored blanket is something I am using to use up some old acrylic.  I work on it here and there.  I have other adventures I hope to catch up and document in this blog.  We have been enjoying the garden.  Lots of squash and tomatoes.  We put everything in one raised bed and we learned that next year the tomatoes will have their own and their squash/zucchini will have their own.  All I can tell you is that garden fresh salsa is amazing.

I have been enjoying summer with the little one.  She is ten months.  Can you believe it?

Weekending: Parc Safari










































Hubby and I originally thought Polish Fest was last weekend but it turns out it was next weekend.  The U.S. to Canadian currency exchange rate is really good right now so we decided to take an impromptu trip to Parc Safari which is right over the border in Hemingsford, Quebec.

The place was amazing.  Much better then any zoo I have ever been to. You drive your car through the safari and animals come up to the car and you can feed them.  Hubby and I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time.  There also a zoo portion.  We went under the guise that we were going to Little Miss but she slept through most of it.  We plan to do this every summer so maybe next year she will be into it.  I highly recommend it to anyone with kids.

After the zoo, we stopped at a cidery and a winery.  The ice wines at both places were amazing.  I could have spent a lot of money there.

I did work on some crocheting but it's a gift so I can't say anything.

8 Months!


Little Miss is 8 months!  Time is flying.

I am sorely behind on keeping up with this blog.  I hope to do some catching up before the end of the month.

Weekending: A Derby Day Party and a Trip to the Park













Hubby and I began our weekend tired.  Sadly we had back to back funerals on Thursday and Friday.  It wasn't anyone in our family but the family of friends.  Needless to say, I have been thinking about my own mortality.  It's a reminder that we are only here for a short time and we need to make it count.

This weekend was our annual Kentucky Derby Party.  My battery died so I don't have many photos of the party but I got a few beforehand.  It was great to spend time with our friends.  We have so much food left over that we won't have to go shopping for several days.

The weather is finally beautiful and Hubby and I decided to take Little Miss to the park.  We live really close to a neighborhood "pocket park" and we put Little Miss in the swing for the first time.

I have my finals for my classes tomorrow and I can't wait for it to be over and for summer to begin!
