Just didn't get a picture of this - I don't do the grocery shopping - Don does it all - so I never have a chance to see a basket of groceries.  So I'll show you this pretty sunset instead

19. A seasonal cocktail or beverage

A ducky drink

Just horsing around!

Summertime Scavenger Hunt

That was quite a scavenger hunt. I like the painted rocks, especially the night scenes. I hope to get my large ladybug rock painted. It will go out near the turtle I repainted last year. Even with several layers of polyurethane his green wore off. - Margy

Where do I start to wax lyrical about your photos. I much prefer to look at a sunset than a basket of groceries. My husband, too, normally does the grocery shopping. Those painted rocks are cool and your grandson is so sweet. What a wonderful idea to take a book to read and leave one behind. I love that!! LOVE the horses. I have major case of the wanties re the vintage camper; wish oh wish I had one. Wouldn't it be the best fun decorating it. Family get togethers at your place look like a delicious affair. Isn't that the coolest porch. How I would love to sit a while on that enjoying a cuppa. So many things to rave about, but I best go now. Have a lovely day.

Well! Where do I start? I knew before I opened your link that I was in for a treat but they are wonderful. That moon! Wow! I also love the way you have thought outside the box. The footprints on your quilt. The window of the mini library. I could continue....
