End of June

Hard to believe June has come to an end. Summer is here! I hardly have had time to work on my projects. Busy with weddings and baptisms.
I did work a bit on the blue shawl, the most beautiful part of that is the border at the end and I can hardly wait to finish that.

  The bride, groom and her mom on left. It was a beautiful wedding.

 Remember when I finished this? Someone in the family wants me to make one for her!!

This salad was yummy!! Recipe here.

 I know this is not a good photo but I was sooo excited about seeing this beautiful bird!! Is it a bluebird?
 After seeing this book all over people's blog I got a used copy.

I know it's Juvenal literature but I like to read these light books sometimes...a contrast to husband who finished reading all of  Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
 My son asked me to make shortcake so I did and he liked it.

 Mashed squash with butter and on top sprinkle brown sugar and freshly ground nutmeg. Place some butter and warm on oven till butter is melted and it looks ready.

 Simple salad to go with fish dinner.
 This time of the year we eat fresh fish.

 Soaking for tomorrow.
 Growing in a corner of the yard by the house. It's pretty but not edible.

 This building is so incredibly old! I like this simple design.

 It was so windy when I took this photo, you can "see" the wind.
Hope you're enjoying your Summer. Let me what are doing this Summer. Now we're travelling to spend the 4th of July with family. Take care and may many blessings come your way!!

Lake vacation

It has been weeks of busy days. First busy week was VBS then church conference and then going to for  the lake vacation with family. Finally home and caring for lots of laundry. It has been raining and cloudy here. Summer has started officially now let's see if we can see a few warm and sunny days. I have not done a lot of crochet or reading but mostly going to one place or another. We have a wedding to go this weekend and today we are going to the rehearsal.
Love this time of the year!
 It was a bit chilly and it rained.
 Having tea outside very early in the morning.

 “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!”  Psalm:107:1

Golden Alexander, very common in Minnesota.

 His sweet mom and brother.

Red Columbine also very common in Minnesota and this was  right by the water.
 The resort is the distance.

 This old guy is the sweetest.

 I devided to place a couple of bird feeds in the backyard and we have cute visitors there.

May you be blessed!!  ~  “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35) ~
