Life Lately: Good bye June....Hello July!


  • June was busy just like May! My oldest grandson D drove up for a week. I miss him & it was great to see him. 
  • My middle grandson 'J' is here for the whole summer. It's fun having a 12 year old around! 
  • Our granddaughter 'S' (9yrs) lives in the neighboring town,  she comes to visit but gets bored, lol. She doesn’t understand why her brother 'J' doesn't want to spend 24/7 with her, lol! She will learn eventually (we hope).


Grand fur-baby Wolfie enjoying the dirt!

  • Finally all the dirt saved from the driveway extension, sidewalk and side patio is spread and grass seed is down and starting to grow, Yes! Trying to keep the fur babies out has been 'oh so fun' (sarcasm).
  • My garden is doing good but not as well as years past!
Hot Thai peppers 🌢 yes they are hot πŸ”₯ 

  • I've started working on garden ideas for next year! 


Around the Web: 

  • Cottages and Bungalows has an article on Homemade Bug Repellent for your outdoor summer fun
  • Do you follow Cindy of @windowboxcottage she's so sweet and her home is so beautiful! If you don't have instagram you can check her home out HERE

Shopping: 

  • Not much to talk about besides groceries,  I don't think you want to hear about that. Except this pineapple cream cake, it was so moist & delicious! Bought it from a local store Pate's Farm Market.



June on the Blog:
