AT THE COTTAGE.CALM

Well, we have dial up finally connected after about 2 hours of me fiddling with it and not being able to know all the terms and numbers for the connection.
Bell was great with the patience thing...She must have been young...because mine was running out. I had to have peanut butter to sustain my energy!

We have been here 2 weeks and we have had all the weather that one can imagine, except floods. It was freezing for about 3 days, snow flouries for just show, then rain, then the sun came out and we had warm weather which brought out the black flies in abundance. I've never seen them like that before. I think it's because my sweetie raked all the property around the cottage so that when the weather warmed, well need I say more...And I got bitten which is unusual as this girl doesn't attract them very much. Oh well they will be gone in a week or so.

The hummingbirds are back, the males were waiting for us on the 15th when we returned and I now have 6-8 hummers feeding like crazy and doing the mating dances. Very fun to watch at dusk when the feeding frenzy goes on and the males do their thing by swinging and swooping to attract the females.

We had guests for the past week so I haven't been sewing, although I did cut out hundreds of 2 7/8" squares in preparation for my grandmother's left over stash that was given to me. I have no idea what to do with it all as it's blues and more blues. I am just piecing it all together.

Oh, I tell you it's so nice to be able to share my life on a blog. I have been missing this for the past couple of weeks. I can't download photos till we return home next week, but they are on the computer ready for high speed to get them posted.

My sweetie has had pneumonia and he was pretty sick for the first week we were here. Good thing we had amoxicilin in our meds bag or we would have had to return to the city. He is over it now, of course he thought he had a cold...men!

Memorial day in America. Today I watched the people at the Wall leaving flowers, touching names and just standing quietly appreciating the beauty of that Wall. A friend from Canada went to visit it and she was reduced to tears. So it's a day to remember.
