Bits & Bobs of Here & There.......

















 Hope you are all well...

Looks like Summer has arrived for sure!

Heading back to the cottage in the morning...spent 2 days there earlier in the week...gorgeous weather!!

Will be back on Sunday, as our sweet Miss V will be hanging around with us for a  few days...before she heads off to FLORIDA with her Mommy...to celebrate her 5th birthday at Disney!!!!!

I must say...I am already starting to worry...2 gals off on their own...in another country...but...that is just me...a worrier thru and thru...♥️

       Have a wonderful weekend...

                See you all soon.....


                              Cheers!  :o)

  2. So many gorgeous garden pictures, but one just leaps out for me: Sweet Peas!! Yay, I love them, especially in green glass. Happy Birthday to Miss V, and what a spectacular present, a flight to Disney. She will love it.

    Exciting time and trip for that little five year old . . .
    I can fret too Linda . . . they will have great fun.
    I took my first grandchild to Disney for his "Five Year Old Trip". . .
    Just the two of us and we did just fine!
    We went to Sea World too!
    Not sure if I would feel that brave today!!
    Happy times at the cottage!

    2. Yes, we all spent the weekend at their lovely Long Island summer house, lots of fun. Now here at home my BF's teenage grandson is staying with us for a few days. Great kid and the BF's keeping him busy. Have a good week and sending good thoughts for the Disney trip. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  7. Hope the weather is good at the cottage. It is hot and humid today. Wow you have beans, mine are just forming, have peas, lettuce and a few little cherry tomatoes. Disneyland for a 5th birthday, sounds like fun, but I'd be worrying like you.

    1. More beans this weekend! Crazy,eh? I sure hope it rains down at the cottage..,getting crispy!
      Oh....ill be worrying....

  8. Everything sure looks summery up your way, right down to your little piggies!! You always have the cutes pedi's, Linda.

    I didn't know you were growing veggies---how I miss that. Maybe someday I can make a little plot here at the lake. I started off with a huge veggie garden the first summer we were here...about 10 x 12. So much goodness but little time to keep up with. Maybe now that I'm here longer. Your meals look scrumptious! Tomatoes and avocados! Yum.

    I can't believe Miss V is five already! She will have a ball at Disney World, it's changed a lot since I was there but my Abby and her guy went last summer (at the old age of 26) and want to go every year. Something for everyone. I totally understand the worries. They never end. Chicago is really out of control with the gangs and guns and I won't beat around the bush, we live in a great neighborhood but not far at all from some neighborhoods with huge amounts of gang wars. You have to be very sure of where you are going so as to not get lost in a wrong place.

    At the lake for another week after this. Just loving doing things at my own pace. Everyday is a little adventure. I'm going home the 17th as I have a few appointments. Ugh...wish I could just stay indefinitely. ;-D

    1. Hi Jane...
      I grow a few veggies in big pots...would never survive in the ground!
      I will worry every minute they are gone....
      Enjoy your lake time!
