I forgot I was on the photo thread a posted a long blurb.
It is cooler here now and I had a lovely solo walk at 7:45, after which I spent some time weeding my new asparagus border. Listened to the garden show on the radio. Now I will upload a couple of cards. Then lunch and more gardening.
I am staying out of town today as the Scottish Festival is on this weekend. It brings thousands of people into town. Previous years I have volunteered, but I was not asked this year and I am glad. 4 hours of standing in the hot sun, taking money for parking, and at least half of them wanted preferred parking close to the building and would not believe me when I told them the field parking was closer to the events. Meanwhile there were line ups waiting to go in and the police telling us to hurry up.
So happy to be in my quiet neighbourhood. 3 of the 5 houses in my cul-de-sac are on vacation.

Very sensible Ina, we ventured to the port this morning for our Walk, it was awful I can’t stand it when it’s so busy so we will go to the smaller beach until the end of August when the tourists go home.
It’s so hot at the moment but it forecast rain for tomorrow so we were happy but now it’s changed again, oh well!

Morning. A funny story. So grumpy and his friend did the canoe trip. The whole week they were paddling against the wind and the current. The final day they were coming back. The wind was pushing them and the current was with them. So grumpy pulls out this tarp like piece of material and creates a SAIL! So he held the sail and his buddy was the rudder. They made great time!

Oh another thing! They brought something like an oven mitt with them that was fire retardant. They were able to move pots on the fire and pull out rocks to make bannock. The buddy is a welder/ iron worker and brought one of the gloves he uses.

Jayne..I have Photoshop. In expert mode I add a layer on top of the picture. Then I get in close on the face. On the topmost layer I put a very colored oval or circle to cover the eyes and nose.

Afternoon, been to the hospital, Steve had his check up for his skin cancer, apparently the one on his cheek is completely gone but behind his ear the doctor thinks there may be some left, Steve has to go back in March unless anything appears on the scar!
He seemed pretty laid back so it was partially good news I suppose.
Is baking hot but we’ve been in the cool car and hospital, now we are sat in the shade relaxing.
We went to bed at 8.30pm last night as it was just too hot to watch tv, we woke up at 5am and then fell asleep until 8.30am, can’t beleive we slept so long, haven’t done that for years.

Hopefully next week I will manage to get in my craft room, we’ve been doing jobs everyday ,today I had to do some work on my mosaic as a big crack appeared, Steve is pruning the fruit tress, one per day, tomorrow is the lemon tree, that’s a job for two, oh joy!!
Our son sent an email yesterday with his Christmas flights! They arrive ten days after we leave their house after our trip, I’ve put the Christmas tree etc at the front of the attic, we don’t bother too much if it’s just the two of us but if our youngest GS is coming we will have to make an effort, ha,ha,

The GS in the photo is 10, the other two are 6 and 3. I think it’s the angle of the photo, although he is quite tall, his dad is 6ft 3ins and his mum is 5ft 10ins so there’s a good chance he will be tall.

Lynn just caught up with your photos of grumpys trip, looks so lovely and tranquil


Ina your garden is beautiful, reminds me of a English country garden, beautiful flowers.
In our garden here many of the plants are ones you would grow indoors, umbrella plants, yucca, rubber trees.

I will take a photo of my cabbage plant as I call it, I will show the babies that Steve is growing for me that dropped off the main plant. I think eventually we will have to take it out as it may damage the wall.

How is everyone?

I got to be mom today! Doesn't happen much now that he is 30.he came over after work to check the connections on my electric recliner. The controls have been cutting out on me. I was going to flip it over and try to figure it out.. No.. Can't do that! I am really feeling the pain since the manufacturers decided to stop production on my pain medication. For no real reason of course. They start up again in Sept. I HOPE!
So after that we went for fish n chips and he got to tell me about the new route he is on. It is killing his knees and hips. So many stairs.

Default S2S19FF 'Honeybee awareness'

Good morning all. The sun is shining and it is going to be a great day. Beautiful sunrise this morning too.
It's Thursday, and time for this week's challenge. This coming Saturday it is national honeybee awareness day in the U.S. Here in Canada, scientists have been warning us about the decline in the bee population, due to chemical use in farming and gardening. I have never believed in using chemicals and have English country style gardens. I have lots and lots of bees buzzing around. As long as you share the flowers with them, they will not sting you.
All that to say, we are going to focus on bees for this challenge. Bees, honeycombs, hives, honey, even flowers, if you include a bee. Let's have fun with this!
My sample: A kind of summer by yellowrose46 - at Splitcoaststampers

Happy Friday everyone...my last day to get dirty and then I’m back to normal...well not quite as I plan to scrap and catch up on cards. I am not looking at current weekly challenges...repeat...I am not looking at current weekly challenges. I have decided to try and be smarter about the challenges so I can keep on top of them. Famous last words lol...watch this space.

So on that note, I need to get out of my jimjams and shower and seize the day.

Sleep well everyone.

I am very impatiently waiting for the rest of the photos from the canoe trip!

Ina thank you for the reminder.. I want to go to ..bees are life.. A bunch of bee people sell their stuff through the shop. I got something last year for my throat and want to get more before cold and flu season starts.

I have been good and decluttered 5 boxes of stuff yesterday and today. Right now I am taking a break and watching... Morse, just Morse.. Lol this is season 1 and I don't think we hear his first name till the second last episode that was made many years later.

Morning, just finished pruning the fruit trees, hot work, makes me feel itchy but I had a swim to cool off.
Had a front row seat at the beach this morning having breakfast, that beach is so tranquil compared to the main beach, a couple more weeks and we will be back to normal when the tourists leave!
I still can’t be bothered to craft, far too hot!

Happy Saturday everyone..you all talk about heat and it is freezing here..to us. What a storm we had yesterday...I haven’t seen it so bad for ages. Our bins blew down the lane way and I had to run and get them. The wind and rain was like sleet and bit into you...haven’t felt that since I lived in the UK lol. We had our winter doona on last night and still cold lol.

Well I am heading back to bed. Hubby isn’t feeling well and my head is banging...sinus headache..and maybe too much craft. My craft room is a disaster but I will get up there eventually and sort it. It needs a full day spent on it. I couldn’t find flowers I know I have somewhere last night so just used what I could see lol.

Now DTGD has finished I can focus on stuff hubby wants to do..he’s been neglected. Jan we are planning our Spain trip...meeting my sister and BIL at the bottom of Spain..that’s the plan..we plan to be there for 3 weeks..maybe longer. If we are near you I would love to fit in some time for a lunch or just a drink. My sister says it’s beautiful where you live. I’m just not sure how we would get there as hubby won’t drive so we are doing everything by train. I will keep you posted. I think if my sis and BIL are with us you guys would get on..they live in Derbyshire.

Time for bed....I don’t care if I sleep Saturday away lol. All I have to do today is food shopping..later and tidy my craft room..but even that can wait.

Here’s the orchid in my craft room..it likes craft too lol. I used the flowers in a card recently. It’s come back with a vengeance and all the buds are open now. I took this at the start of DTGD.

Sleep well and see you later. Group hugs..thanks for your friendship and support.

Yes very hot and humid.. Yuck! I do love your flowers! After the last move all I have left is a big Christmas cactus. I did try having plants in pots on the balcony but it just gets so hot out there.

Many hugs!

Wow Jayne your weather sounds as bad as they having in England at the moment with storms etc and here we are exhausted from the heat!

It would be great to meet up if you are anywhere near us, made me laugh when you said the bottom of Spain, it’s a very, very long coastline, you’ll have to let me know the places you will be visiting to see how near you are for us to meet, If I can give you any information on anything let me know, some friends from England always pick our brains as they say.

Your flower is lovely, I have one in SF, Sandy the boys nanny bought it me about four years ago for my birthday, every time I go I expect it to be dead as it’s just left on the windowsill, ignored!

Hi Jan

Orchids do seem to be hardy so yours in SF may survive lol.

We are looking at Barcelona, Madrid and then heading down to Granada, Cadiz, Seville and others..meeting my sister down that way. That’s the plan and looking at May next year as we don’t like the heat...just not sure which direction to do it in but we will have to fly to either Barcelona or Madrid. Would be great if we can meet briefly. I’ve told hubby we have to try lol. My sister will be with us probably but you guys will have something in common with her being in Derbyshire and not too far from your neck of the woods. She’s not as crazy as me lol but we do like a sangria together lol.

I’m still in my jimjams and been on here and watching YouTube lol..I need to get showered and go and buy food...or we will have no dinner again tonight lol.

Hugs and happy week nd

Wow Jayne you will certainly be covering a lot of miles, looks as if you will be traveling the length of Spain, you will need to start at one end and keep going, probably start in Barcelona as that is at the top end, then Madrid, Granada is amazing, there is a hotel we have stayed in right next to the Alhambra palace, you need to book the trip around the palace when you know your dates otherwise you won’t get in, plus give yourself an hour or so before that time to get your tickets and walk through the gardens. They give you headphones with numbers on plaques as you go round, we’ve been about four times taking the kids, we had new year there! Amazing, there’s also a tourist bus that goes from the palace around the town so you can hop on and off.

The nearest place to us is Madrid but that a five hour drive!! Apparently the trains are brilliant, our neighbours have been to Barcelona on the train, I know it won’t apply to you but seniors get discounted travel, gold card or something which makes it much cheaper, I think you have to be sixty though! I think you still have a way to go! Ha,ha, I wish!

Hi Jan, yep we will be covering a bit. We both haven't been to Spain since in our 20's...I've seen more with living in the UK. We love travelling by train so that's not a problem and would get a train down to you and maybe pick your brains more once we start planning. We can get senior discount LOL...we have senior cards here...we are over 60, cough, cough LOL My sister is early 70's.

I will pm you once we have our itinerary mapped out...working on it next week now DTGD is over LOL.

Have fun. I finally got out of my jimjams and dressed by 2.30pm LOL. Hubby says I look tired...I wonder why LOL

Yes let me know your dates although I might not know when we are here until we get to England and work out with our son when they need us in England next year as DIL is starting her teacher training in September until next July and we are sharing child minding with her mum who lives in Poland!when she starts we will know when she gets holidays so we can all work around that, that’s why we are having a month in England before our trip to SF, looking after youngest GS! Fingers crossed we are home when you are over so we can meet up.
Our DIL is having laser eye surgery in October so we will be driving her around when we are in SF, she’s been waiting for our visit to have it done!!

Hi Jan, will do. If you are there and we happen to be able to meet will be awesome, but if we can't, another time...we are always going back and forth to the UK every couple of years at present so I can see my family. I've been commenting on some of the DTGD galleries..only managed one so far...going to be a slow process LOL.

Time for dinner.
