Tuesday Tidbits #82 Back in Pennsylvania

Hello from Pennsylvania!

Welcome In… I hope all is well with you. I’m so happy you are here.

We did it! We got on a plane and flew to Pennsylvania to our LakeHouse. Actually we flew into Buffalo and our lovely friend picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at our house. We definitely appreciate her!

The first thing we saw as we pulled into the driveway were these purple irises in full bloom!

The second thing we noticed was the change in temperature! We left 110 degrees in Arizona and here in Pennsylvania we have had mid 50’s to mid 70’s. How wonderful! Perfect for gardening!

The lake is just as beautiful as we remember it.

Our gardens were still showing signs of Spring. Even though weeds and overgrowth were in full force! But the rhododendrons blooms hid all of that!

It was nice to get inside. The kitchen was ready for me to cook and have tea or coffee!

And our living room area was ready for us to take the time for us to sit and relax.

The violin hanging on the wall was my Mom’s. She played it in high school. The curio is our bar cart and the buffet was brought all the way back from a vacation in Maine. The pretty forest scene painting was done by my brother.

I like McCoy Pottery so the living room has my small collection which is styled all around our vintage typewriter. Sweet Man built the shelving table. It’s perfect.

The SouthWest flight was fabulous. Only 50 people on the flight and middle seats were all open. Everyone is required to wear a mask and no one resisted. A small bottle of Purel is permitted and the flight attendants recommended using it often especially before they served snacks and water. I had wipes and I used them to wipe our area down before sitting. I felt quite comfortable and safe.

Here in Pennsylvania masks are mandatory in all establishments. Only outdoor seating at restaurants for our county… other counties around us do have indoor seating now. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is opening each county differently depending on Covid numbers etc.

Well… it’s time for me to get back in the yard. I have had to pull out a lot of this vine so that the lily of the valley can grow better.

Even though we are busy we took the time to gather with friends (social distancing, of course) and we got to watch the sunset from their backyard.

I sure hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Are you pulling weeds? If not… don’t worry… I have pulled enough for you as well!

Thanks so much for the visit! I always am so glad to hear from you so please drop me a line and tell me how you are doing. Are you keeping busy?
