Not a Dull Day

With all the crazy weather going on I am tempted to go back on vacation down in Ajax at my sisters. We came home a week earlier than planned as my sister's surgery went better than anticipated and she was able to return to work yesterday. I am still trying to work my way through 3 1/2 weeks of emails as well as get caught up with all the other things that didn't get done while we were away. Today when we wake up the sun is shining, a couple of hours later we have dark clouds then pouring rain, then back to sunshine and the temperature goes up to 22 celcius and out come all the bugs.

We got a visit this morning from the family of geese that are residing in our pond.

We have not been able to get a picture of the duck family as of yet. It is funny when both families decide to take their babies for a swim as they each stay at the farthest ends of the pond away from each other.

Shaun and hubby have decided to start cleaning up around the yard, most of the garbage has been picked up and taken to the dump and now they decided to take the defunct cars to the scrap metal dealer. It is unbelievable what can be done using a backhoe.

Now the car is all hooked up and ready to go to the scrap metal yard.

My granddaughter Madison celebrated her last day of junior kindergarten today and was having fun playing outside with Lucky despite all the bugs. For some reason the bugs just seem to love biting Lucky's pink belly and we are having to make sure to put repellent on him as well as ourselves. Our other grandchildren are finished school tomorrow. All of them are looking forward to having the summer off, especially since we finished filling up the swimming pool today. Hopefully the chlorine tablets will do their job and the levels will allow the kids to go swimming if the temperature goes up into the 20's and the sun stays out for awhile.

I managed to find some Anchor Magicline cotton yarn for sale on Ebay and finished a dishcloth called Starfish. I just love the way this yarn self stripes in the pattern. I wish that the yarn had not been discontinued. The pattern for this cloth and others using this yarn can be found at http://sew-funky.blogspot.com/
