Vacation Goes Way Too Fast

We’ve been on vacation for a couple of weeks and it’s sadly coming to an end. We’ve spent the time at our house at the lake in Northern Michigan and it has been wonderful.

We have had wonderful weather and enjoyed great outdoors.

At the beginning of our vacation, we took my grandsons to Dinosaur Gardens. There are 20 something life size dinosaurs in this park in northern Michigan. It was a blast!

Most of the time you could find us lounging on the deck or down at the dock. My dog loves to fish in the lake. She would stay in there if I let her.

The evenings are the most beautiful times. So peaceful.

My dollar tree mug that I decorated with my cricut.

Did a little sight seeing. Outlook over Ausable River.

Got some kayaking in.

My Mother’s Day present got lots and lots of use. I got the solar lamps at Aldi. They give a nice ambiance at night.

We also did a lot of hot tubbing until our motor blew up…ugh…hopefully we get it fixed soon.

My sweet girl loves the water. I added this bird bath with solar fountain to my butterfly garden. It’s simple to install and makes a soothing noise. Here’s the one I got on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2UiTY0B

I picked this Tea cup and saucer up at the local thrift. Made a bird feeder. I can’t go too long without gluing or painting something.

Relaxing with my best girl

I took a ton of hummingbird photos. I’m a beginner photographer. I found this very challenging. I will keep practicing. I’m thinking about taking a photography class…

We had family and friends visit us. Good times…good times. The guys caught a few fish.

Snuck in a few snuggles.

Also got to do some driving around on the old dusty dirt roads in my Jeep.

Jeep hair don’t care… haha, my Saphira loves it (so do I)

The line to get in the small local thrift. Ten people allowed in the store at a time due to COVID-19. I was so excited about getting back to the thrift stores. I found a few cool vintage items to add to my Etsy shop. I’ll be adding items when I get back home. Here’s my shop if you want to check it out: https://etsy.me/2PLBBjk

I found this adorable guy today at the thrift. He will bring me a great profit according to ebay, that is if I can part with him…

You can find him here: https://etsy.me/3cAfvYF

We will be heading home in a couple of days and I will get back to crafting. cooking and blogging. It’s been a nice break, I’m refreshed. Until next time…
