Happy Labor Day - I hope your holiday weekend was a good one. We enjoyed fun and a little work with our family.
We have a few things going on this fall so for us it was time to take out the waters toys
So thankful oldestfarmhouseson was home to help with this job - the water is already cooling down and I was so glad not to be in it except for my feet and that was enough for this old girl.
I finally loaded on to my computer the pictures from my camera and came across some pictures from the summer - here's a little of what I've been up to and what's been happening around the farmhouse.
What do you do when there's a party to go to further down on the lake - you load up and head out down the beach - no better way to travel and take your toys with you
We enjoyed a few bonfires on those beautiful nights when the wind wasn't blowing
enjoyed as much time with this little one as we could
she is pure joy, growing so fast and so dang funny - what a blessing in our lives. Today before she left she decided to put on grandpa's socks - all by herself and then walk around - to funny
Did a little road tripping with the peeps
Enjoyed time with friends
Enjoyed time with lake neighbors (love traveling by pontoon lol)
enjoying their bonfires
Did some bike riding
Went on drives and ate outside as much as we could
Did some stitching
Did a fair amount of cooking
Surrendered my kitchen to family who created an amazing dinner - thanks Emjay and Crazyguyonabike - it was dee-lish
and enjoyed spending a busy weekend with our wonderful family coming and going over a 4 day period - as Mother Tother said it was like Grand Central Station and I LOVED it
And enjoyed lake living most of all
(that crazy dog lol)
It's been a wonderful busy summer and even tho the calendar still says it's summer - in my mind I've moved on to fall and I'm ready for it. The autumn season is my absolute favorite time of the year - I only wish it would last longer than it does. I've taken the time to enjoy summer and put aside those projects I wanted to start and tried hard not to feel guilt for it lol. Now is the time for those things - not during our brief summer time - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. I feel the fall nesting urges creeping up on me and I'm ready to dig into those projects and start crossing off the list. I'm ready to get back into some serious needle and thread time, decorating and some good old comfort food cooking. How about you - how was your summer and are you ready for the autumn season?
So now I think I will kick back with a happy snappy and enjoy the evening. There's some dark looking clouds on the horizon - a possible rain storm to cap off the weekend - perfect :).
BTW I think someone is pooped out and ready for some quiet time
So come on back tomorrow as I continue my goal of at least a picture a day (or more) for the month of September as I welcome the autumn season.
Until Next Time (Tomorrow)
