Hello my friends. I'm writing to you from my "Happy Place". I've been at the lake since last Friday morning. We went into town for church and to mow the grass at home and then back by 3:00 Sunday. I do have to go home tomorrow because Chloe has to go to the vet to get her yearly shots. She will also get a bath in the morning...not one of her favorite activities. Hopefully we will return here on Friday morning for the long weekend. I hope to stay until Wednesday or Thursday next week
I have lots of pictures for you of our "place" here. I took this one Saturday morning of my handsome Hubby, (on the left), with Larry just after they completed putting in their permanent sewer hook-ups for their new trailer. It only took 3 trips to the "big" city of Loon Lake to get all the parts! :-) Loon Lake is really small with a Hardware/Grocery store and gas station as well as a thrift store.
Then they laid a bit of sod by the front door and gravel around the front of the camper.
Then they put in the steps down our little hill. Busy bees those boys were on Saturday.
Last Wednesday night Dennis and I built these stairs for Larry & Nita. We've now built five sets of steps for people here and with teamwork we have quite the system for getting them done relatively quickly. They are so much nicer than the normal fold-down steps and much more sturdy and secure.
I bought a bowl of flowers for my own stairs. Aren't they pretty?
We put fresh bark dust around our little flower garden areas. And Nita put out her "Welcome" sign.
Here's a bit of a different view for you. We put in this sod last summer and it looks great. Paul & Lori's trailer is on the far left behind the tree. Our in the middle and then Larry & Nita's.
The view from the road looking toward the lake between ours and Larry & Nita' trailer.
From the top of our hill looking toward the road. We have a little conversation area and fire pit. Sorry it's a bit tilted, I was trying to balance on my tip-toes.
Our flowers are blooming so prettily..
I like to sit here and watch the hummingbirds at the feeder there on the right.
The only drawback? This is yellow pine pollen floating by the dock. Pollen has been terrible this week and trying to keep it wiped off of surfaces and keep from sneezing has been "fun"! It's just as bad at home so I'm not complaining. At least I'm trying not to complain.
I have crocheted around five flannel blankets this week but I admit, I have been reading quite a bit. It's a book of fiction about the settling of Nebraska. I can't put it down. I always find myself reading more in the summer and knitting less. I feel like I'm being lazy but I do love to read.
I have had a few people ask me in the comments and by private email about my headcovering so I thought I would answer here. I wear in because of 1 Corinthians 11:1-16. We belong to a non-denominational Christian church and I am one of only two women there who cover their heads.
I hope you all have a lovely week and I'll be back soon.
"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
