Harvest and Flowers

This is a picture of my impatients in one corner of the deck. This was taken a few weeks ago and now you can not even see the pots!!.

I have started the harvest of the produce from the garden. After I get this bucket of green beans frozen, I can safely say those are done. We still have yellow beans though.

Just a start on those yellow beans. I have at least double that to pick over the next few days.

Everyone have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Retirement and Computer Problems

No pictures today, just a post. It seems my 7 or 8 year old computer has decided it needs to retire as much as I do. Since we got home from holidays it has been acting up and late last night it finally gave out. Harvey and I are are hoping that we can get the information from this hard drive onto another, but for some reason I have a bad feeling about that. Guess we will be spending a few extra hours a week redoing much of the work. You would think that after the last time this happened I would have made hard copies of all the important stuff.....

I sent in my letter of resignation at the beginning of the week. So come fall I will be a stay at home wife. Just think of all the crafts and things I can do now. I am looking forward to being able to do what I love and to travel when the urge overtakes us and perhaps even blogging a bit more than I have been over the past few years.

Have a wonderful evening everyone.

God bless.

We had a wonderful vacation up at Jan Lake Saskatchewan. Thought I would share some pictures of the cabin with all of you. Here is Harvey resting after a days fishing on the front deck

This is a picture of the front of the cabin. Pretty spacious for the two of us.

And beautiful sunsets to see us to bed each and every night.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

Little Bit Of This And A Little Bit Of That

Well it has been awhile since I did any blogging. Getting used to this retirement thing is taking awhile. Now I am on holidays and Harvey and I are around eachother 24/7.

I am spending my time trying to use up some of my yarn stash and get the sewing/craft room cleaned up at the same time. These are some of the scarves I made with some of the stash. I fell in love with Sashay yarn and the lovely scarves it made.

I have also made some rhubarb strawberry jam and gotten a few packages of rhubarb into the freezer for use later.

The garden is growing well and I plan on posting some pictures very soon.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. God bless.
