A Good Summer Day

This past Saturday was a good day


Started off visiting with some of my favorite people

(my sister and her family stayed overnight with us – we always have fun together)


We got up and had some breakfast

  1. So much to say about this post!
    I love the sunflower-so cool!
    Your gardens are beautiful-I also like to use old galvinized tubs.
    The food and supper looks yummy.
    And your swimming hole refreshing!
    But the best of all was probably having your dear sister and family to share it all with!!

  2. Ok. Can I come move to your neck of the woods. Our Flea Markets do NOT have cool stuff like that.. LOL.

    Great post. I've been enjoying following your blog.

  3. You accomplished a lot in one day and I would say it sounds like a perfect summer day!! Love what you found at the flea. Look forward to seeing the transformation of the cabinet/shelf.

  4. Great stuff! I love your garden, it looks beautiful!
