Still Here!

I will do a post as often as I can in the summer, and hopefully my Blogging fever will return one of these days.

Well, after a winter of about 18 snow storms, our summer has been rain almost every day! And also a lot cooler than usual!! We manage to squeeze in some fun when we can thought.
I have booked a cabin for all of us (including the dog! LOL) for a couple of weeks time...it will be a really nice family getaway for a couple of nights. I've already mentally started packing and preparing the meals.
My youngest has been enjoying camping most weekends with my oldest DD's boyfriend's family. He has a sister the same age as my youngest, and they are best friends.

My son is bored...he's 15 and this is his last summer to "hang around"...he'd love to have a job, but most places won't hire until 16 and the few that hire at 15 aren't hiring. I've been giving him things to do around here and pay him a bit periodically for the extras...so that helps. I asked him to make me a little chair for my garden....this is what he came up with...isn't it nice!!!!

Anyway, must go....I'm off to Starbucks in a bit to have coffee with an old friend! Have a great day everyone!!

I wondered if you had drowned under all that rain. My parents are in N.S. for the summer and Dad is grumbling about the rain.
Love the little chair your son made. cute addition to the garden.
