Taking a moment to breathe


What a delicious crazy wonderful month it has been.  Warren is home.  I turned 60 years young and celebrated in excellent health. The house has continuously been filled with guests.  I’m well and alive and times are very fine indeed.

To say we have had a lot of guests is an understatement.  It has been a revolving door with just barely enough time to wash the bed linen and start again.

The month started with a rare and special visit from our oldest daughter who lives in Edmonton, our son-in-law and the world’s smartest, adorable three-year old / grand-daughter. Avery with cone

While in Ontario for the week they invited a friend and her two little ones to stay a few days. We were tight for guests rooms so we pitched a  pup tent in the living room to hold three junior campers.

That was the first of June. Since then we have not stopped.  I’m not complaining.  It has been wonderful to play tourist and explore the County.  There are still many new wineries I have yet to sample,  countless galleries still to view and garden cafes to try. I’m bringing home  scented soaps from the lavender farm, walking the beach regularly and eating unbelievably large amounts of delicious gourmet foodie things. ie lavender infused shortbread, cheeses and first of the season strawberries.  (To die for)

Good friends, wine and excessive amounts of food.  Got to love this.

This will be my last post for at least two weeks.  I will be heading out for my own vacation with two girl friends.  We are flying to Newfoundland for a quick tour and to hopefully catch an iceberg.

When I get back in early July, I am going to put my feet up and finally relax.  I won’t be able to sit for long.  There are weeds that need attending to and more company coming.

Pinch me.  Life can’t get any better than this.
