Works In Progress


"The trees, the wind, the birds, the mountains,


Everything inside us and around us


Wants to reflect itself in us.


We don't have to go anywhere to obtain the truth.


 We only need to be still,


 and things will reveal themselves in the still water of our heart."

These are the words of
 Thich Nhat Han
from the poem 'Everything'
in his book 'Your True Home'.

I'm spending as much time as possible outside
in the sunshine
beneath the trees.
Summertime here has been glorious this year.

Family Summertime at the Lake


Fishing from Kayaks and paddle boards


Relaxation on an air-filled yellow ducky


Three girls cooking in the kitchen
with Owen the puppy keeping an eye on all.


Grand baby Ashley couldn't wait to use her
new fishing rod
and paddle off with her dad in the canoe.


And so they disappeared down the lake
hoping to contribute to supper.


 Fishing off the dock turned out to be more successful!


Mommy and Stevie Ray relaxed in the shade.


Mommy and Ashley floated with noodles galore.


The youngsters.....even baby Stevie...scampered
up and down the stairs.
Gramps and I tried to keep going up to a minimum!


Ashley learnt all about paddle boarding.


A joy filled time.
Thank you my loves.
