I took these pictures of these delicate daisies on the road by our trailer. I adore daisies. They seem like such a happy little flower to me.
This is the fountain by the store at the resort. They usually turn it on only on the weekends to conserve water, but during June, July and August, it's on most of the time.
There's a happy fisherman perched on the top catching his dream fish. :-). Loon Lake is very popular with the fishermen and has lots of different species in it. The most popular, (I think), are trout and silvers. I haven't fished since I was a teenager, but lots of people up here do and I cheer them on from the campsite when I see someone pulling a big one out of the water.
My happy basket of flowers by the front door at a our "city home."
The lavender is blooming profusely.
This was my first little statue when we bought the house years ago. I love the happy little children.
Nita had a pile of squares for me when I arrived at the trailer on Friday. I spent most of the weekend putting these four blankets together and crocheting borders around them. They will be going to the crisis nursery in the near future. Perfect for some little boys, don't you think?
I did finish four more pair of mittens for the school children.
I plan to spend the day knitting mittens in my chair and reading the third book in the Blossom Street series by Debbie Macomber, "Back on Blossom Street". I'm really enjoying rereading this series. It's my third time through them and it's like visiting old friends.
And I started a new pair this morning.
I was watching Tiny Houses last night and all of the sudden the TV switched channels on it's own to some paranormal show and I couldn't do anything with the remote. I figured the batteries must have died, although it's a brand new remote from the cable company, only about 2 months old. They upgraded everything when Alex was home, the box, the remote and the channels too. Apparently we had been paying for the fast speeds etc., and getting the old stuff. Anyway, I couldn't get the battery door off at all. This morning I went into the service center and he said, "the door just pops off. Like this." And then he couldn't get it off either! I wanted to laugh, but I restrained myself. Seriously, he acted like I was fairly stupid and then he couldn't open it either. I admit that I am very technologically handicapped, but I can change batteries. Finally he gave up and handed me a new remote which had to be programmed. Now it works though and I'm a happy girl. It was kind of strange that it worked great and then just stopped. No warning at all.
I hope you all have wonderful plans for the holiday weekend if you live in the U.S. I'm praying for the people in West Virginia with the terrible flooding.
