These two things have absolutely nothing in common
but they both must make it into a post today.
I'll start with Marydon at the Blushing Rose Blog.
You see, I met this lovely lady when she hosted a
Blog Meet when Sherry was visiting the
East Coast from her home in Arizona. We had a
very delightful luncheon and fascinating conversation.
Last week Marydon offered to do a post about my
candle website because she is just sweet like that. So, it
is up on her blog right now. I hope you'll get to know
her and even check out her store.
I've never seen anything quite like it.
Now, to segue into Outdoor Wednesday with our
Last week, in the mountains, of North Central Pennsylvania
we chose the wrong day to visit Lyman Lake.
I don't know exactly why we went on the only
truly overcast day of the week but I do know that
it wasn't raining when we left the cabin.
However, by the time we arrived at the lake it was a
steady downpour. Not to be deterred we all piled
out and headed on over to the lakeside.
Jonathan had his fishing pole and found a dock from
which to cast.
He got several nibbles but was not
able to actually catch any fish in his few minutes there.
The rain became quite a deluge and we were all a bit
soaked. But, boy was it fun!
One funny moment happened when our
young and lively dog, Bandit, came running at full speed.
She spotted Jonathan at the end of the dock and attempted
to take the shortest route to him. What she did not notice
was that there was water between herself and Jonathan.
From four quickly pumping legs on the ground
to a significant splash...
that quickly she was in the water.
She went under
and then resurfaced
with a face full of green plants and algae.
For some reason I just froze.
I was worried about her but my feet wouldn't move.
Thankfully, Mikey was right there
and helped her out of the water...she was swimming very
nicely but she really couldn't see.
Poor Bandit looked like a
miniature swamp monster.
We got quite the mileage out of that event.
Every chance we got everyone huddled under
any available shelter.
|Three reactions to the day....Chelsea is just being funny.|
|O.k. so Mike must have taken this one. I look so glamorous in Jonathan's gray striped hoodie!|
I just had to get photos of the various lineups.
Such fun this was.
I would do it again, even if I knew it was going to rain.
Although, a day like the one we enjoyed
today would be even better!
Sunny and 78 degrees.
That is what I am
