It’s Friday and we’re counting blessings.

1. Beach time with these three . . . soon to become four!

3. Fun at the boys’ concert last evening – even in the rain!

Boys_show_2014They put on quite a show, despite the downpour. There was a group of intrepid fans gathered around the stage, but the rest of us watched from underneath a tent. We had a great view on the big screens. The show was part of 2014 Celebration Zone, a seventy day festival celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference. It’s been awesome so far, with free concerts, events and activities every day

4. Although it was too bad the boys’ show was rained on, my flowers and veggie garden were pretty happy with the downpour. They needed it.

5. The air is so lovely and fresh today. Such a nice change from the humidity of the past week. We Islanders aren’t used to humidity and we tend to droop 🙂

Wishing you much happiness this week.

    I love a fresh breeze blowing through a window clad in crisp curtains! Looks like summer to me, also.

    Gorgeous pics – especially the moon photo!

    Glad the boys group was featured at the Celebration.

    Oh, I like the look of your garden. So tidy and productive! I don’t think I’ve seen a concert in the rain — not with all those electronics…

    And to answer the librarian question about my reading habits: some for study (Randy Alcorn’s Heaven, sermon messages on the topic) some for fun (Long Gone by Alafair Burke, The Dirty Life by Kristen Kimball).

      Thanks Ann – I’m an incurable book snoop 🙂 I haven’t read Alcorn’s Heaven yet but I want to. I wondered about the electronics too but the stage was totally covered. John got wet when he went out among the crowd.

    How fun that your boys were included in that festival! It’s been humid here too and we’ve had some pretty big thunderstorms. The huge hailstorm missed us, I’m very thankful for that! It’s also been very strange because we are getting lots of smoke and haze from the forest fires in B.C. and Banff.

      Wow – that smoke is travelling a long way. Our humidity has dropped in the last few days and I’m so glad. Much easier to breathe.
