We made it to the lake for the 4th. It was an overcast day, but beautiful all the same. I enjoyed getting away for the day from the busyness of everyday life. We swam, sat on the beach, and walked the trail around the lake. This picture is taken from the earthen dam on the opposite end of the lake from the beach. In the afternoon we went to my folks and visited for a few hours and then came home. I went to bed and did not get to see any fireworks. So sad because I really like fireworks. On Saturday we piddled all day. I did sew one thing! I finished a pin cushion. Besides that I didn't do much. I have been getting some crocheting done in the evenings before bed. I am working on a shawl.
Because it was stormy on Saturday most of the day the boys didn't get into the bees until Sunday afternoon. They are still trying to find the queen. She has been very elusive. The bees are busy though.
This is a picture of the lower garden. I picked my first cucumber this weekend. I have been getting kale, lettuce, radishes and lots of herbs. My tomatoes are looking good. I didn't plant as many as in years past. We have had some rain lately and that has helped me not have to water.
Sew Long for Now!
