Tuesday Tidbits #233 Flying into July!

Happy 4th of July USA!


Did you have your fireworks display yet? We had ours last night. So fun!

Summer Checklist

Yep, it’s July already! Not only did our week go by fast, but so has the year! Time sure has a way of flying by. We have been trying to put the brakes on Father Time! So with that, we are both trying to slow down and savor the summer.

I have been checking off my Summer Checklist and am enjoying the simple pleasures of summer! I am happy to say I got that chocolate-covered ice cream cone I talked about last week!


We drove up to the Dairy Supreme and ordered just in the nick of time. As we began to enjoy our cool refreshing treats, an entire little league baseball team with their parents and some grandparents, too, pulled in. Like I said, just in the nick of time!

“Life is like an ice cream cone, enjoy it before it melts!” ~unknown

Another summer checklist item I enjoyed was a sunrise from our kitchen window. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be to watch a sunrise. I stopped myself, and as I was holding my morning tea and taking in the transforming colors, I thanked God for another day.


Porch Sitting is another wonderful Summer Checklist item. It’s an old-fashioned ritual I try to do every morning if time allows. I could sit out there all morning listening to the birds sing, bees buzz by, a chipmunk scurry to the bird feeder, and wave to the neighbors who walk by. A few times, I will hear the clipity-clop of horses pulling an Amish Buggy, then watch them as they pass by.


In the evenings we both sit out front and watch the cars go by but most importantly we notice the flowers in bloom, the butterflies that flutter and the bunnies that say hello. A moment to stop and sit a spell. Relaxing at its best!

“Make your front porch part of your home, and it will make you a part of the world.” ~John Saris

A Lovely Evening

We enjoyed an open house for a new Airbnb here in Edinboro, which is located on the outlet of the lake. The owners of the Airbnb Cottage also own The Cottage Rose, a quaint vintage shop full of home decor, gardening items, and gifts.

Edgewater Escape is the name of this Airbnb which is also on VRBO and it sleeps nine. It’s located on the outlet with a dock and kayaks are provided. They styled this cottage beautifully.

The landscaping at Edgewater Escape is quite lovely.
Kitchen Coziness!

One of two bathrooms.

Such a cute idea!

Relax a moment.

A beautiful place to get away to at the Edgewater Escape Cottage.

When leaving the open house we saw this beautiful summer sunset on the outlet.

The reflection!

What’s Blooming?

Our yard is in bloom!
Lots of Bouquets are being made!

Strawberry Season

🍓🍓 Our cottage kitchen at the lake.🍓🍓

The local sweet berries are in season and are a treat every time we take a bite! We like them just as they are or in our morning cereal/oatmeal. However, I’ve been known to eat them in a bowl with whipped cream!

A wonderful snack!

Enjoy the rest of your 4th of July if you live in the USA!
