We’re making blessing lists ~  counting joys ~ saying thanks! Join us at Susanne’s, Living To Tell The Story.

The first week of Sept – enJOYment!

1. An evening down at the shore, clamming with friends.

 A full moon and low tide ~ perfect for digging bar clams.

Of course. not everyone dug bar clams.

Someone had to document the evening, 

record all that hard labour,

and keep track of success.

And, someone needed to help everyone else  remember how beautifully the light reflected on sea and sand. 

 

And who would ever want to forget that magnificent sky? 

Ahem . . . good thing I brought my camera along!

2. The weather turned this last week – although it isn’t officially fall yet, there’s just a hint of crisp freshness in the air. And that is just enough to put me in the bread-making mood. 

The kitchen never smells better than when you pull a deliciously fragrant loaf of bread from the oven.

3. Late afternoon sunshine in September.

Everything drenched in a magical golden wash.

Ice-cream castles in the air.

4. Sweet cherry tomatoes from the garden – nature’s candy!

5. Sarah’s movie of our family get-together on Labour Day. Introducing Rob and Dorothy’s new puppy, “Winnie”. Sweet times!

So glad you could come by for a visit!

Wishing each of you a joy-filled weekend!

with love,

    My favourite picture is the one of the sun on the water but then the home movie trumped it! Thank you for this delightful glimpse into your family life. We grandmothers never tire of seeing and hearing and holding those precious little ones. My youngest grandprincess is 16 months now and her baby brother is due in October. It's all joy!

    What a lovely Labour Day, and thanks for sharing it with us. You are so talented — with both types of cameras. I had a feeling our closing shot might be of the sweet baby girl. She's a doll. This looks like it was a great family time.
