My life....



As I type this I just got an email that there is a very bad storm happening at the lake.  I just left about an hour and a half ago and the skies were blue as can be but weather can change quickly in the mountains.  Apparently the hail was so big that it broke their skylight and there is torrential rain.  Hopefully our place is okay, but we may be driving back up after Hubby gets off work to check things out.

Here he was on Saturday with Paul, our neighbor to the north.  Paul and Lori have been friends for over 20 years and they brought their trailer out last summer to join us.  Nita and Larry are in the motorhome to the south and they came to the lake the same time as us.  All of us have been friends since we moved to Spokane in 1993.  We're sandwiched in the middle and like it that way!  :-)  This is our new toy.  We've been watching Craigslist for a good used golf cart to use to go to the beach and the garden but didn't want to spend the $$ everyone seemed to want.  Paul found this one for only $850 and it was a steal!  All of us chipped in and happy, happy we are.  I've used it a few times already to go work in the garden.  Paul and Lori use it to go to their boat and Nita and Larry just tootle around in it.  We call it the limousine!  Such fun!

This is a view from the back of our site toward the lake.  Larry & Nita's motor home on the left.  Our trailer on the right.
Wild roses behind the trailer.  I think they're beautiful.
A close up.  Isn't that pink beautiful?





One of the pots of flowers we planted by the gazebo. 
Another view.  We brought our patio furniture out this weekend since it didn't get any use at home.

Here we are again.  This is our trailer on the left.  I love this place!
I came home today because I have a dentist appointment tomorrow morning at 7:00 and didn't want to drive in that early.  I chipped a tooth while in Omaha and that has to be fixed along with an old filling that is cracked.  After that, assuming I'm not a drooling fool, I'm heading back to the lake for the night and will come home Thursday for Bible study.  Friday will be back out there for the weekend.  Ah.  I love summertime.


I took the runner to Jenny's office on my way home to see how much longer it needs to be.  I think 20 more squares and then the border should do it.  I stopped an bought another ball of thread.  Hopefully that will be enough to finish it.


The last picture is a view of the lake this morning from by the beach.  Would you believe people have been swimming already?  The lake water temperature yesterday was 62 F.  Not nearly warm enough for me.  Skiers and jet skis have all been out and zipping around too.






I hoed and weeded the garden before leaving this morning.  I'm hoping the hail didn't ruin everything that sprouted this past week.  It was looking pretty good and I think most everything was up at least an inch or so.


I hope you're all having a most wonderful week, whatever you may be doing.


Blessings always my friends,

Betsy

  3. Betsy, reading your posts about the lake is so fun for me! You enjoy your spot on the lake, the same way we do. The marina where we keep the boat, we have also camped in many times too. Good friends come from the desert and keep their 5th Wheel for a couple of months, and they go back and forth. We tool around on their golf cart too. Such fun! I sure hope the hail didn't damage your garden! Hooray for summer, and lakeside fun!! Love your patio furniture there too!!!

  7. Thanks for sharing your enjoyment of the lake and your longtime friendships, Betsy. I'm so glad you have both! Mary the girls and I arrived in CA safe and sound at 3:15am this morning...the weather is warm and wonderful! I keep forgetting to tell you that when Mary asked Molly who she wanted to invite to her 5th birthday party, she said you!!! You are loved. xx

  13. I like your big tent between the trailers. Wouldn't mind having one myself out in our back yard for the summer. Hope your dental work goes well. Never a real fun thing but it's ok and teeth need fixed or the mouth hurts alot later! Glad mine has quite hurting, finally! Take care!
