A catch up......

                               Hmmm I don't think I like this new format. It doesn't do anything I want it to do. Makes me sad to think that blogging is taking a step backwards instead of forward. This is complicated.

After trying unsuccessfully to edit this post, I apologize for the ugly post. I'm not working at it any more today.

It's been very quite here, not a lot going on but a we like it quiet. We've been able to enjoy the warmth and sunshine of late, and managing to pass those days that were much less enjoyable earlier in the month.

The top photos are of quick shots of the hummingbird and the new feeder we added to the yard. He seems to enjoy it and manages to handily chase everyone else away. The middle photos are of course taken of the angry, wind whipped waters of Lake Huron/Georgian Bay at the mouth of the harbour where the ferry comes in. Following that is wild strawberries I found not far from our door, and of course the wonderful green colour and abundance of cones from one of the many every greens that grace the views out our window. The last photos I captured a couple of days ago, a visitor on the picnic table. Not sure if he was expecting lunch, but we didn't feed him. 

We've been working off and on a day or two a week and are enjoying the distraction from quiet, lazy days around the Igloo. The nights are warming up nicely or cooling off, depending on your point of view but we can now leave our door, windows and vents open all night and sleep comfortably without being too hot or too cold. The perfect sleeping temperatures for us.

Lots of wildlife around these days. A number of deer have popped out from cover along the roadsides, we even managed to see two bears on our recent travels for groceries. Of course the regular rabbits, porcupines, geese, and sand hill cranes are also ever present.

My dad's youngest brother was involved in a motorcycle accident late yesterday. Not  many details, multiple injuries of course but they don't sound to be life threatening.

 Condolences to my best friend Linda and her family on the passing of her brother Allen, a few weeks ago. Allen had been ill for some time. Belated Happy Birthday wishes to my Aunt Shirley, who celebrated on June 3rd. She is the oldest of my dad's two sisters. Also an early birthday wish for my sister Jan, who celebrates another year on June 25th, and my uncle Percy who celebrates on June 26. Also Happy Anniversary wishes to my brother Rick and his lovely bride Barbara, they celebrate another year (36 years, I think) on June 23. Of course Happy Father's Day to each and every father out there!!!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the visit.

Until next time... take care, be safe, stay healthy,
