Hey everyone,

How are we all on this very crazy day? First it's so warm that we have to shed all of our layers. The sun is shining and we are all getting our dose of vitamin D. Suddenly it gets all dark and the rain comes down with a vengence. As quickly as it came, the rain dried up and the sun was shining again. Mother nature was a little indecisive today, glad she finally made up her mind and stuck with the blue skies !!!

Look at this gorgeous rainbow that I shot in the pouring rain, that is why it is so blurry. It was so vibrant and the colors were amazing,
these pictures just do not do it justice.
If you look closely you can see the double rainbow below

More flowers that I bought today and will plant tomorrow

Look at these yummy finds that I purchased at a tag sale this morning.
Are these not adorable!!

Look...they all open up, so cute

It was quite a productive day, I am in a crafting whirlwind doing some work for my Very Vintage 4th of July swap as well as working on a few other projects.

Enjoy your evening !!

What a fantastic day out there today!!

Shipped my son off to camp about 3 hours away this morning for 3 days with his grade 7 class. Miss him already...boohoo....I'm sure he hasn't given us a second thought.

Do not over pack they said

Visited many sales this weekend, School Fair, The Pink Brigade Sale (for Breast Cancer), Church Bazaar and a couple of Garage Sales. Scored some fantastic craft items, kids books for my daughter to take to camp...(she is running the Kids Corner this summer in Halibuton at Camp Wanakita), jewelery and lots of other lip-smacking goodies.

I am so excited today as I have an interview on Wednesday for a new job....whoohoo!!
Gotta go... lots to do now,
Stay cool,

Summer is here !!

Such a scrumptious day outside today.
Visions of children swimming, ice cream dripping
down your arm...30 degrees celsius...crazy for May.
It is the first really hot weather that we have had.
I guess I should get outside and soak up
the vitamin D.
Have yourselves a glorious day!!

Family BBQ

by , in
Seemed like a great idea, call up everyone.... invite them over for a beautiful day. Who knew that this was the coldest day on record for this date in May and the wind velocity was insane.

Not to worry, a fun time was had by all.
Lots of great company, good food and tons of conversation.
Thanks to everyone for coming....we'll do it again soon.

So busy running around that I forgot to take out the old camera and capture the moments. A few that I took before everyone arrived, just to give you a glimpse.

Preparing Appies

Just Iced Cupcakes

Prezzies for the Ladies

Fantastic Roses from Natalie

Oh, by the way, the weather today is a balmy 20 degrees celsius, sun shining and not a lick of wind....gorgeous. Anyone up for a BBQ.

Enjoy the sunshine on this Victoria Day Holiday everyone,

Be Safe

Rain Rain Go Away

Hey there everyone,

It is raining, dreary and yucky out there today.

Works for me because I'm shopping for a family BBQ that we are hosting tomorrow. This is the perfect weather to be cooking and cleaning for a party the next day. You don't feel like you are missing anything when the rain is pelting all around you. I'm baking and am a practically a slave to the stove right now (just joking).

Can't wait until everyone arrives tomorrow and we all have a great get together.

Bye for now.....

Victoria Day

by , in

Today is the start of a long weekend in Ontario. On Monday we celebrate Victoria Day. A civic holiday named for the Canadian Monarch, presently Queen Elizabeth II.

The weather is bright, sunny and warm today. The weekend to buy all of those remaining hanging baskets, plant some annuals with no worry of frost and visit with friends that have been hibernating.

Sunshine in my Garden

Bumblebee Sweet Treats

A perfect start to a long weekend.
Enjoy Everyone,
Nerina xoxo
