Please excuse our little nap

We're back! Yipppee. Its been hard without a computer... you really miss it, but on the other hand its amazing what you can accomplish when your not sitting in front of the screen everynight. I have missed visiting some of my favorite blogs and hearing news of friends but otherwise, maybe a good lesson in time managment was learned. My first tree peony has bloomed. These flowers are the size of my hand outstretched. They are amazing and the smell sends me swirling.... but now the thunderstorms start - so I brought them inside, even though I prefer to enjoy them in the garden... the crazy rains destroy peonies.

I spend some time with photography over the last week. I am really not that satisfied with my camera.... or maybe I need to take some classes or something.... the pictures are just not as glorious as I would hope.... but the subjects are divine.

Blue Screen of Death

My computer has bestowed upon me the blue screen of death. Have you had that happen? I have been without my home computer for more than a week now and its killing me! Don't give up on me yet.... I'll be back again soon.

Stratford Ontario

My daughters and I travelled to Stratford, Ontario today for a flea market run. It is a charming Victorian city nestled in pastoral countryside a few short hours from Toronto and the U.S. Home to the Stratford Festival - a lovely place to visit. They also have fabulous flea markets! Thanks to them... I am surrounded in beauty and I still have more to share.
