Memories of Vacation Time....

My 3 weeks vacation at the cottage ended and I was back to work this Monday.  THAT is always a hard thing.  The good thing is I still have 1/2 day Fridays and odd days here and there before the end of the summer.

  I wanted to share some bits from when I last posted.
The last time we took a picture of the "twins" in the window box was on a Friday and I came home on the Monday.  When I returned on the Thursday they were gone.  We felt a bit saddened because it had been nice to watch them growing up and now the window box was quiet.  I hope they are enjoying lots of juicy worms in the big world.  Oddly enough last weekend we didn't see one robin in the yard.  They all seemed to be missing.
Our Rose Red Hydrangea just planted during my vacation has been blooming.  It has had 3 large blooms already  So lovely and all from a discounted $7.00 bush.
Wedding Bride and Groom Decorated Sugar Cookies - 1 Dozen
I had an order for 12 dozen Bride and
Wedding Bride and Groom Decorated Sugar Cookies - 1 Dozen
Groom sugar cookies that I baked, decorated, wrapped and ribboned during the last week of my vacation.  That was rather exciting.
 Baked some cake pops....
I chuckled at Abby having a very hectic vacation on the sofa alongside the "Life at the cottage is like heaven on earth" pillow....she sure does LOVE to lie on her back.
 
That I "borrowed" as I sat outside on the deck reading....listening to the waves on the lake...watching the sailboats...feeling the gentle breezes on a beautiful sunny vacation day..  Unfortunately Marc had to go to work pretty much every day and only stayed home a couple of days with us.  But he was able to take some shorter work days.  

Geez....I did NOT want to come home.  Hope you are having a great week!

Abby surely looks like she is having a great vacation.

The little birdies...guess they are finding their own way in the air now. Sigh. Sweet.

You will be busing making beautiful bride and groom cookies, for sure!
