Don't you love these stamps?
And look! Scratch and sniff! (And it really works!)
Greetings from the lake again. Just another great day in Paradise. We have a new family of ducks.
There are eight of them but I couldn't fit them all in the pic. If I did, they'd just look like dots!
I worry about them those because of this.
Mr. Turk E. Vulture. This turkey vulture had a rather hefty meal on a fish that washed up on shore. I hope he's only into dead things and leaves my ducklings alone!
A quick idea if you don't have a gift bag for a bottle but do have some tissue paper and string or ribbon. Cut a long strip -- maybe two feet long, give or take -- of tissue and somewhat longer for string. Fold the tissue in half horizontally and fringe it, leaving enough space in the fold to hide the string. Then wrap it around the neck of the bottle and tie it off. Not fancy but kind of cute!
One treat of the most recent visit was seeing my cousin David and his wife Bonnie.
And we did eat well! Corn on the cob, grilled chicken, roasted potatoes, salad, peach crisp, bread from the farmer's market!
We celebrate Bonnie's belated and my premature birthdays. One of her gifts was a watercolor of her Herbie. I still want a redo on this but she seemed to like it!
My friend Kate is here and art camp has started. More on that later.
Meanwhile, we are enjoying bright days...
And lovely sunsets!
Have I mentioned, life is good?
