It was a quiet weekend here, nothing pressing had to be done just the usual grass cutting , trimming and laundry . Papa’s sister and family came down for a visit over at his mom & dads so we were over there visiting and then off they went to the water park called Wolly World it has go carts a big water park ,mini golf, reg golf, arcade you name it , in the city of London Ontario and then they went back home which is a two hour drive . I bet they were all tired . It was good to see them , my how the kids grow fast .
It was a very hot and humid weekend but we were good with it lots of shade and at least there was a breeze . In the late afternoon we would go in to cool off then as the sun set , we would pop out for a bit and end the day by sitting on the patio porch watching the sun set with cuppa tea in hand watching and listening to all the birds as they snuggled down to bed and listened and watched the night creatures , crickets , bats flying catching their food , peepers down by the river , the odd dog barking , bunnies quietly hopping about , firefly's or lightning bugs as we called them lighting up their paths all good stuff .
Papa was busy in his work shop and at his craft table he has in there now making me a wonderful hanging garden sign . All done but one sign pointing to Papa’s work shop that will be done and put up soon .
I put my butterfly chime on the sign as well ok Papa did my idea for that lol and I did a little butterfly water dish there hanging with a few rocks in it for them to sit on and a few orange slices in it as they love oranges .
I love it Papa . I tell you Papa comes up with the coolest ideas for our gardens , we still have to find a perfect place for his bird houses all though we already have quite a few being occupied now lol . Papa is also working on our picket fence corner garden that will take a bit longer as he is building and shaping each piece , I cant wait I am already planning what to put in it for next year !
Butterfly's and bumble bees were busy this weekend in the gardens as they have been all week !
The Cicadas are buzzing up a storm in this humidity haven’t seen one low to the ground yet or any of their armour left behind . So a quiet weekend indeed but a nice one !
Hot and sticky again today but we are keeping cool under the patio porch and Miggs .. ? well she is keeping the squirrels in check .
Until next time .
