I STOOD QUIETY FOR AWHILE BESIDE THIS YOUNG POPLAR TREE LISTENING TO A MORNINGS BREEZE RUSTLING THROUGH THE LEAVES
Blowing gently out of the east a soft morning breeze rustled a young Poplars leaves. Wandering alongside a ripening cornfield Pheebe and I followed a grassy laneway leading off to a distant forest. All around us the chirping of Autumn’s Crickets while high overhead wispy skiffs of light gray clouds drifted slowly across a pale blue sky.
CAME ACROSS A SWARM OF SEA GULLS
AND HERE’S THE REASON FOR ALL THE SEAGULLS IN THE FIELD…..MANURE
It wasn’t a long Jeep ride this morning and we had come directly to the Marsh for a short walk before returning home. Just long enough to catch a few photos and enjoy our scenic countryside.
Back home I puttered about in the yard for a bit, grabbed a shower and waited for our company to arrive. Rebecca, Ricardo, and little Ella rolled in shortly after noon.
RICARDO AND KELLY IN THE MOTORHOME
Not often our house is the hub of activity but with an active 3 year old our day very quickly shifted into second gear. Lots of laughs, eats and photos. It’s not that often Kelly gets to spend time with her Grandkids but she sure enjoys them when she does. Ella and Kelly had quite a time today playing Little Miss Dress-up and it was really nice to see Kelly so happy and bubbly. And speaking of bubbly happy the Pheebs was having herself a total blast as well racing around all over the place snitching snacks and jumping on people whenever she could.
ELLA FASTENS HER SEAT BELT THEN TAKES US ALL FOR A DRIVE TO THE BEACH
OK BOYS AND GIRLS RIDES OVER
THESE TWO HAD THEMSELVES A BLAST
JUST A CARRYING ON LIKE CRAZY
Every year at this time the town of Zurich just south of Bayfield has it’s annual Bean Festival week-end and every year an old friend from my home town who I grew up with travels from Kitchener to the Bean-fest then drops around to say hello on his way home. Craig Wilker and Shirley dropped around about 5 o’clock and it’s always good to catch up on things and reminisce about old times.
DAD TAKES A PHOTO OF LITTLE MISS FASHION MODEL
I DIDN’T TELL ELLA THAT WAS AN UPSIDE DOWN DOGGY DISH ON HER HEAD
HEY SARGE DOWN THERE IN THAT ARIZONA PLACE HERE’S ELLA GIVING ‘BILLY BASS’ A NICE MASSAGE
PHEEBE HELPS ELLA CLEAN HER PLATE
Rebecca and Ricardo headed into Bayfield for a late night supper at a Bayfield Eatery called Drift while Ella remained with Kelly, Pheebs and i to keep us entertained. And a fine job she did too.
THESE TWO DESPERADOS HAD THEMSELVES A GREAT TIME TODAY AND YEP THOSE ARE ALL KELLY’S PURSES TOO
READING A STORY BOOK TOGETHER
I LOVE YOU ELLA…..I LOVE YOU TOO DAD
Sleeping arrangements were finally figured out with Rebecca and Ricardo sleeping in the Motorhome, Kelly and Ella in the house and me out in the woodshed with the wheelbarrow. A good day was had by all and it was nice having something happening aside from our usual every day routine.
RICARDO’S MOM SENT A SPECIAL PRESENT FOR KELLY ALL THE WAY FROM VALENCIA SPAIN AND I THINK ELLA IS PRETTY EXCITED ABOUT THAT
ELLA CAN’T WAIT TO GET THE PRESENT OPEN
A BEAUTIFUL HAND MADE SHAWL
KELLY AND REBECCA WITH RICARDO TRANSLATING THE SPANISH CARD
You really didn’t think I slept in the woodshed did you?? Nope, I was in my usual living room recliner spot for the night:))
