I have been so busy the last couple of weeks that it hasn’t left much time for blogging. I had to fill a few custom lighter case orders the last couple of weeks. Then I had company arrive so that cut into the beading time LOL. Then the garden and the lawn seemed to creep into my world and again took time from beading. But with little sleep and sheer determination I was able to finally finish all the projects on time and got them shipped out this morning. Here is me tapping myself on my back LOL. I think I am done with lighters for a few days and going to work on some nice earrings and maybe a doily or two.
We took, my boys and I, took my hubby fishing for father’s day. We got rained out, but not before we got to enjoy a little time at the lake and some beautiful animals. I saw a mommy deer nursing her young little baby. That was quite the sight. I have seen baby deer before, one was just a few hours old one time, but I have never had the privilege of seeing one feeding from its mom before. It was truly a beautiful sight.
We also got to see some of the beautiful Saskatchewan antelope. They are quite brave little creatures and allowed me to get pictures, from the car of course. I was so happy that the camera was being good that day and most of the pictures turned out clear and beautiful. We were able to get the shot of the antelope looking right at the camera. It was lovely.
At one of the lakes we saw pelicans. Who knew that pelicans would be so far from the sea? That was the last thing I expected to see over the weekend. My youngest son was the first to spot them. He started yelling “Look at the Pelicans MOM” naturally at first I thought it was just his imagination, but turned out he was dead right .
The next few days I am going to be focused on getting my garden weeded. Now that the rain has stopped it is time to go take a peek at the veggies and see how they are all coming along. I made the first salad of the season the other day with lettuce and veggies from the garden. It tasted so good and reminds me of how the work of gardening is so worth it. I splurged a little today and bought a nice garden hoe to make hilling those potatoes and getting weeds out easier. This weekend I am planning on getting some more carrots in the ground and maybe some radishes too. Then in the evening I plan on getting some more beading projects done and finished. I would like to list some more stuff on etsy and for me to do that I have to have the projects done.
Summer is almost here and the boys only have three days left of school then they are out for the summer. They are getting pretty excited and so am I. The countdown is officially on now.
Well I should sign off for now. Have a wonderful day and from here in beautiful, sunny Saskatchewan green blessing.
