Looking Back -- May through July 2008

More looking back on 2008!

We thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with our wine tasting friends -- good fellowship, good food, and good wine, all shared with lots of laughs!

I loved every visit to every farm market I visited!

Rick and I enjoyed a canoe trip on the Au Sable River in early July. It was absolutely beautiful and a terrific time.

Of course, anytime at the lake with Gypsy and Somerset Life (or Studio or Artful Blogging or Cloth, Paper Scissors) brings great joy! (and creativity!)

Sunsets at the lake were the best!

While up north, I visited Stonehedge Fiber Farm, home of my beloved Shepherd's Wool! A fascinating, tiny little mill where I was warmly welcomed.

I enjoyed lovely time at the lake, though not enough of them. I especially loved watching the ducks who came by regularly, often sunning themselves on the beach.


My friend Kate and I enjoyed learning new art skills at Artiscape in Sandusky. (This was actually in April, but I'm not sure how to juggle the photo and don't have it on the home computer!)

On the not-so-good side, a bad June storm ripped up trees at my house and Rick's -- but we were lucky. Tornadoes took out tons of trees in many old, beautiful neighborhoods.

This was the time we spent lots of time at the hospital with Greg as he had his cancer surgery.

But there was time for photography, and my season for flowers and color.

I simply loved looking out in the yard when my neighbor Rosie -- whose garden is gorgeous -- would dry her beautiful lace.

Wonderful idea to have a year-end review and remember the great (and even the not-so-great) moments. Thanks for sharing your amazing photos again! Seems like you had an eventful year :))

Take care,
Dagmar

Beautiful pictures -- those times at the lake were among my favorites, but that lace really caught my attention, too. Hope Greg is doing well.

very cool collection of pictures; very moved by Greg's photo (hugs and well wishes to him); loved seeing the Somerset magazine in one picture; and, imagining summer breezes blowing through the neighbor's lace; and, of course, Gypsy, and the duck, too. This is a great way (and venue) for the year in review! Happy New Year - happy every year!

What a lovely walk through the year! Thanks for taking us on the journey. I'm excited to get 2009 going, although this marks my 50 year high school reunion, I wonder if the school is still there!? Isn't it amazing how time flies!

Of those my favorites are the one of the sunset and the one of Greg, although, as usual, all all wonderful.
