It has been a while but I think I am back..
We had our Internet hooked up yesterday.
God was good and we were provided with a high speed port.
They said that this little village is one busy place right now and so many have moved in for the Summer that the ports were already taken. Yikes..
I called back a bit later and that girl found me one..
Thank you, Lord..
Here I am...
Took a few pics the last week so you would know what we were up to.. (just in case you are interested)
I think I will explain the pics this time..
A lot of blogs just put on a bunch of photos and a bit of explanation below..
What do you all prefer..
I guess a change is good now and then, eh..
We have been home and packed our vehicles and returned to the cottage loaded for the shop and here, too, of course..
We have had one lovely week with beautiful temps...
The lobster season was on and a lot of boats coming and going..
At the shop the little hedge is blooming away..
I took this pic last year but it still looks the same..
Someone told me the name of them but I forget again.. Sorry..
One night last week a dear lad dropped these by for us ....
Aren't they lovely?
We had them the next day and they were perfect..
Trout.. my fave...
The evenings here are simply gorgeous..
The breezes off of the Bay of Fundy smell nice and fresh..
Here is the spot in my shop that is now my work area..
Terry put a big corner desk in there for me and a high counter to hide my mess..
Tomorrow, Lord willing I will start placing everything..
He is done doing the rooms that he was working on for now and will putter away at finishing them..
We want to open by Saturday so I have to do my thing..
I have been pricing and piling in piles ready to hang and such..
Pray for me tomorrow that I get this task finished.. OK?
We went home again this past weekend for more stuff..
It takes a lot of work to move down for a few months..
If it wasn't for the shop it would be a piece of cake but trying
to bring craft supplies and all is horrendous..
I don't like to forget anything because that means Terry has to look for it when he goes home and that is not always a pretty sight. grin..
His roses were blooming..
As you can see he has them all along the driveway on both sides and they are getting bigger each year..
We packed up again and had Dustin and Veronique for a visit..
Also, so blessed to get to our little church..
Will so miss being there but will enjoy being in church with our daughter once they get back from Florida..
We also visited Trevor and his family as they had just returned home from Ontario..
They had a great time..
So glad God blessed them with a safe journey..
I have been busy making and creating, too..
Homemade Potpourris are a standard feature here..
A little closeup of the roses..
Aren't they beautiful..
We call them Old Moss Roses..
What do you call them?
I usually dry a dehydrator full to add to potpourri...
A few little cushions that are still at the shop..
I love anything with violets on them...
So dear, eh?
Most evenings as I told you before we go for a wee drive..
This was last night..
See the fog bank there in the distance?
Don't you just love fog?
This kind, I mean..
Not the dense stuff you can't drive in.. smile..
Most days it will drift in about supper time and then it disappears..
Well.. not always..
Sometimes it hangs around for days..smile..
I was up early this morning and made a few batches of rhubarb jam..
I am so slow this year but better late then never.. smile..
At the shop we have old stuff...
Old dishes, silver, linens, quilts and such..
None of it is really good stuff but lovely if you like that kind of thing..
We are only open for the summer so we don't stock costly antiques..
Just some prims and a nice bit here and there..
My salves and such are getting done..
Violet Salves and an All purpose one..
I did these this evening..
Lots more to do yet, though..
This is a calm day last week..
Today the waves were nice and high..
Terry and I went to town to pick up last minute things like bags, sea salt, receipt books, herbs and plants and such..
When we arrived back we noticed the waves were high and went and parked beside them and just laid our heads back and had a wee shut eye...
Oh, it was wonderful.. grin..
People must think we are crazy..
Two old people with their heads laid back snoozing away..
I usually just watch the waves but today I was sleepy for some reason..
Guess it was the wind.. smile..
Well, dear hearts that is what I have been doing..
I will try to get to your blogs and answer your emails a bit each day..
Next week things should start becoming normal.. I hope..
Our phone number is 506 833 4801
We won't be open until this Saturday about noon..
Then it will be by chance or appointment although I do try to be here as much as possible..
I hope to open a Facebook page and that might help..
Please feel free to phone for hours or if you are coming this way..
So glad you all dropped by and look forward to hearing from you..
I have missed you..
