Midweek Catch Up

Is it just me or do you find the weeks of Summer just flying by? What ever happened to the old saying the "the lazy days of Summer" Last Friday I went and had nice visit with my Mother at the hospital and she was having a good day and my Dad was going to be around for the weekend and her Sister was coming from Moncton (which is about three hours away) for a visit,so we decided to try once again and go to the trailer for the weekend. We had a very hot and wonderful weekend. We went to the tiny little town about 20 minutes away Saturday morning after a big camp breakfast of pancakes, sausages, and scrambled eggs. We went to a few of the shops there and I was able to pick up a nice dip at their market for a late afternoon treat. When we got back we had company waiting for us. HB's friend and his family had came for the day. Their children at the same age as ours so they swam,played and hiked all around. We had hotdogs,corn on the cob,salads,dip and chips for supper. All in all it was a pretty great day. We came back after breakfast Sunday as the girls had birthday pool party o attend on the next road and we did not want to miss it. They had a ball , and the weather was perfect. Monday we got a lot of yard work done in the hot and humid temps. We all we ready by supper time for the pool. Where we spent the next few hours cooling off. HB helped and we worked more on the new pond I am putting in. We got the fountain running not to high, The falls working good. HB used his small crawler and we were able to spread out the gravel around the pond. Yesterday I made bread, took out some pork chops,cleaned up and did a little laundry. We picked beets out of the garden and went to the feed store to get pig,and chicken feed. We stopped by my Mother in laws and she gave us 12 fish for our pond. We came home and got them settled into their new enviroment. The sky's got dark so HB decided not to go to the field to cut hay. I made supper of mashed potatoes,baked pork chops,beets,and a loaf of warm homemade bread. We had a poor mans pudding for desert. The rain began as a light mist while we were eating. The girls cleaned off the table from supper as I went to help HB and Justin saw lumber at the mill for my new Kitchen floors. (fall Reno project) Jill and Jayne came up after they were done the kitchen. They bagged wood chips that were at the planner before the rains came. They put them on the four wheeler and we brought them to the feed room. We all got pretty wet outside but we are so happy to see the rain. We all came in and washed up got ready for bed.It rained all night as a light mist. My gardens are smiling. HB is back on day shift for the next 5 days and the weather is suppose to and humid again. He is hoping to get to the field for a hour or so each night after work to cut. I am hoping as well as the raspberries are finally ready and they grow so nice there. Well I'm off to make breakfast for the wee ones as they will be up soon. Grill cheeses,yogurt,and sausages are on the menu this morning. Have a wonderful day everyone.


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. I'm glad you could go back to your camp and enjoy yourselves. I agree. Summer is flying by and ours has been anything but lazy. Your meals sound so yummy. I hope you post pictures of your pond. Have a great day.


  2. You have been busy. Summertime does fly. It is hard to believe school starts back up for us at the end of August.

    What fun to have a pond. We had a little one at our old house. Have a wonderful day with your family.


  3. Summer is going by so fast! You sure are having a great one though! I am glad you had a nice visit with your mom and got to get away for the weekend. All your camp food sounds delicious. The food is our favorite part of camping. :) That is so neat that you go to a mill to saw lumber for your floors. I can't wait to see your pond.

    Have a great day!
