Tuesday Tidbits #140 Summertime Pleasures

Hello Everyone… Summer is flying by isn’t it? We are enjoying each passing day of summer and hoping you are as well. This is the first summer at the LakeHouse where we have not had any big house projects going on. So we are enjoying these Dog Days of summer just a little bit more then usual!

I had to have Black Eyed Susans in my cutting gardens. But these little pink delights are lovely too. Their names are Chelone obliqua or Turtle Heads.

Late Edition

I’m a bit late getting this post finished and published. Only because our days have been filled with more Family Fun! So that’s a good thing… our hearts are filled with joy because it’s been a wonderful summer!

This Momma goose is having lots of Family Fun as well!


Even though we have had our fair share of rain… we did sneak in some boating.

My handsome captain…

Sunrises and Sunsets

I think everyone can agree… there’s just something about a sunrise or a sunset. None of us tire of them. Especially over this lake …they can be spectacular.

But even from our kitchen windows… What a fabulous way to start the day while making our morning coffee!

Lakeside Walks

When family comes to visit we all like to reminisce about the old times here at the Lake and we do so while taking walks around lakeside. So here is what we see on our walks…

They have a lovely view looking down the street to the lake.
That balcony makes for even better views of the lake.
Special friends live here…
Always fun to have a boat when living at a lake.
Many people take this same picture. I’ve even seen it on local commercials.
Lake Life!

Our Gardens

Our family enjoys seeing the gardens. They say Grandma (my Mom) is looking down from heaven with a big smile!

I could go on forever sharing flowers… but don’t you worry… I’ll save some for next Tuesday. 😊

Creature Feature

I have not seen one of these for years!

A praying mantis. They are a symbol of stillness and they are to bring calm!

Fall is Fast Approaching

We see it in the stores…

I’m not quite ready for Halloween Candy yet!

And we are starting to see it in nature…

I say… slow down just a wee bit summer! We still have lots of fun to be had! And memories still need to be made!

Thanks Again!

Thank you once again for letting me indulge you with another Tuesday Tidbits. This is a place where I can write down my thoughts of the week and perhaps get away from the “real world.” I try real hard to not listen to the news… but somehow it still creeps into our daily lives one way or another. Covid is raising its ugly head again so please stay safe my friends. Take good care and we will chat again next Tuesday.
