Rain, Rain, Go Away !

What a weird July we are having here in southern Ontario. We have had rain just about every day this month . . . and when it didn't rain in the day it surely rained at night. It is hard to plan your day around that. Especially with kids.

My Boston Ivy is certainly happy and will be consuming my entire house soon. If I don't post again soon . . . . assume it won ! It has reached the roof line now. The shrubs are so large it looks like a tropical Rain Forest. I do cut them back frequently . . . . really I do. I am losing the battle though.

We even have fog most nights because there is so much moisture in the air. Little did I know I live in the tropics (without the heat, however).

I have been rather lazy this month with my postings and Etsy store updates. I will try to do better in August : ) Hope you are having more sun and better weather than we are.

Better than Yoga for Stretching

I must say staining a deck makes you stretch a lot ! It is too hard on the knees to kneel and you have to move too frequently to use a towel . . . so the stand, lean and stretch method is the fastest. I also had to paint the white trim on the covered part. Stretch up . . . Stretch down : ) Better than Yoga.

We have had so much rain lately (note the green grass) that this has been a two week project. It needed two coats but it is finally done. Thanks to my helper : )

My Nanny's birthday was yesterday. She would have been 95. The Lillies in my garden were transplanted from her flower garden. Still going strong, year after year : )

Hope you are having a great summer !

Happy Canada Day!

Happy Birthday Canada ~ 142 years old on July 1st, 2009.
Happy Fourth of July to our American neighbors
(or neighbours, if you are Canadian, lol).

Note the new planters ; ) Hope they are exactly as we have left them when we get back. Maybe the flag will help. My cast iron rabbit is hiding in the backyard.

See you soon. Have a great long weekend!
