Why hello there!
The calendar tells me it’s Friday but I wonder where the days have gone . . .
This week flew by!
A warm welcome to
I’m joining in with Suzanne and the gang over at Living To Tell The Story as we recount our favourite moments of the past week.
I have much more than I can possibly list!
It is sooooo good to have my girl home! Stories, long talks, walks, family meals, countless hugs and kisses! We’re making up for a five and half month absence!! I’m thankful beyond words.
It makes me look ahead to Sept when my sweet son and daughter-in-law will join us from London for my baby boy’s wedding. The whole family together ~ what a blessing!
Without a doubt, top of the favourite list this week is
1. Family times!
What is this finger raised? I have no clue – they’re a silly (but really fun) bunch!
2. We had our DVBS (Daily Vacation Bible School) with over 61 children registered.
Bible Stories, memory verses, prayer, songs, crafts, games and snacks. What a fun time! It fills me with so much joy, and thanks, just to see their happy faces so eager to learn of God’s love and care.
3. This was an unexpected and fun favourite this week! Yesterday, my beloved called me on the phone and said, “Come over to the church right away – and bring your camera!”
Look what was waiting!
I just missed them playing in a puddle on the edge of the parking lot. Shoot! It would have been such a good photo op!
But peeking around the edge of a gravestone is pretty cute too 🙂
This little guy was exploring on his own.
But these two were sticking together.
They scolded me if I came too close – with a chittering sound and an occasional hiss.
So I took the close-ups with the zoom.
We kept our eye out for the mama but didn’t see her. The kits scooted off into the woods around the church and I hope they met up with her there.
4. My garden is making me happy with June blooms.
Here is my Bridal Wreath bush.
And a new addition to my perennial garden – a geranium.
5. On Tuesday afternoon, I enjoyed a special treat – a visit with a sweet friend, and fellow blogger, Carolyn of Aitken House and Gardens.
A visit to her blog is a visual treat but an IRL visit is garden heaven! 🙂
Carolyn is so creative and I came away with some great gardening ideas as well as some lovely perennials to add to my flowerbeds! Thanks Carolyn!
A stroll by these beautiful flowerbeds was perfect inspiration for Mosaic Monday!
I loved this little storybook cottage tucked away in a corner of the yard.
Can you imagine sleeping here on a warm summer’s night with the scent of flowers drifting in on the night air?
Carolyn and I finished our walk with afternoon tea and the best rhubarb cake I’ve ever tasted!
Which reminds me Carolyn, I forgot to get that recipe ~ I have a patch of rhubarb just waiting.
Well . . .
Can you hear the sound of rain? It’s pouring cats and dogs this morning!
I know the garden will be happy to soak in all that warm, spring rain.
Tomorrow and Sunday, we’re promised sunshine! Everything will be fresh and glistening.
June is such a lush green, flourishing time of year on Prince Edward Island.
Thanks so much for coming by!
I hope you enjoyed our time together.
I really appreciate each of you, your friendly hellos and sweet comments.
