Tuesday Tidbits #191 What a Week!

It’s Been a Week

Queen Elizabeth

The passing of Queen Elizabeth was a shock to me. Even though I knew this day would come. Like most of us… I have never known anyone but Queen Elizabeth of the Monarch. She was strong yet gentle, steady but yet flexible. Her charming and consistent leadership was an inspiration to all women in leadership roles but also to Mothers around the world. She did it all with such grace. I am going to miss her smile and her strength… Rest In Peace dear Queen.

I have not seen the Queen but we did see Buckingham Palace.


21 years have gone by since that horrific day on September 11, 2001.

We all remember exactly what we were doing and how frightened we were. We will never forget!

The 9 11 Memorial in front of Lakeview Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio. A rebar from the Twin Towers inserted in the Memorial representing the Twin Towers. The Memorial to the right for the attack on the Pentagon. The Pennsylvania Memorial for the plane that went down in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

A Family Gathering

We had lots of family come to the LakeHouse for a lovely dinner, fellowship, and a boat ride. However, it almost did not happen as Covid decided to shake things up. We may not be as afraid of Covid as before… but when you have to protect loved ones who are elderly… it becomes a concern. Let’s just say… Covid didn’t mess things up! We had a wonderful visit! Great food and fun was had!

I made a Peach Pie shown above and a Pumpkin Pie. My homemade crust is a recipe from a friend and it comes out perfect all the time!
The lake was quiet for our ride with family.

Football has Returned

We are a Football Family! We love to watch football! I enjoy College Ball the most but love to watch the NFL as well. I am an Ohio State Buckeye Football fan. And for some fun family competition… Sweet Man and I both have our own Fantasy Football Teams in the same league. I may need to remind everyone that Miss Nancy is a Two Time Fantasy Football Champion! 2 years in a row! Let the Football Fun Begin!

You can find us both here during Football Season! Our LakeHouse Living room!

Flower Bouquets

I am still cutting flowers from our gardens. I enjoy our very own Flower Bouquets from Spring to Fall.

This is the only Fall Decor that’s happening at the LakeHouse. We have nothing outside as well. Maybe soon I’ll purchase a Mum or two and perhaps a few pumpkins. I’ll keep you posted!

Fall Feels

We are enjoying the cooler temperatures so that we can enjoy the beauty in nature!

This field is very close to us here in Pennsylvania… but it sure reminds me of Scotland!

A lovely evening on the boat! Glad you could join us!

Thank You

I do believe that’s it for this week. As I always try to convey… we sure do appreciate all of you. Thank you for joining us for another Tuesday Tidbits.

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead. Enjoy what September brings to you this week.

Whatever you have planned… make every day count.
