Great Walking Weather

 Hello sweet bloggers!

Just a quick message that all the packages for the contest winners are off in the post. If you don't mine  all you lovelies would you let me know when you receive them. It's just nice to know that they have arrived safely! Thanks

Mother's Day weekend weather was so perfect, you just had to be outside as much as possible. We did lots of gardening, walking, had dinner out and enjoyed hearing from all the kids.
I'd love to show you some of the things we saw on our walks. I'll show you first the new things on our  loop by our house and second some shots near Dartmouth College's Occum pond. It is part of the "Outing Club" where you can ice skate in winter, golf, hike, bike ride, and canoe on the Connecticut river.

                                      OH YES INDEED, we had pigs down the lane (loop)

                                                AND we Have baby CALVES

                                              Jack had a nice swim in one of the brooks

                  Lots of fiddleheads, I have not eaten them though, many people LOVE them
Do any of you sauté them and enjoy?

                                                   Quite the Tree, love the branches against the blue sky

Now for the other walk

                                                 A really huge snapping turtle

                                                 Smaller one

                                 Do you know what this is? .....................hundreds of goldfish

                                           Isn't this amazing?!

Something else amazing.........

                                   Our new shower, but waiting for the fabricated glass walls

                         One of the sinks and medicine cabinet but waiting for the lights

Well, all you lovely people, thank you all for visiting me.  I love all your comments so much, thank you all in advance.


My new lawn decoration, quite in love with it!!

  3. Hello my dear friend Robin! I am so excited about the package winging it's way to me from YOU! I will treasure it because it came from you. Your walk looked like fun. I have 2 loaves of zucchini bread ready to go in the oven and then I'm going out on the deck to pot up some new flowers I got last week. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. Such an enjoyable walk Robin - I love piggies and calves and have never seen to many goldfish in one little space! Jack obviously enjoys a swim and that water looks so fresh and clean - and speaking of water, your new bathroom is looking very smart, it must be so nice to be at the end of its renovation! Enjoy it!
    Thank you so much for sending off the lovely surprise gift and I will definitely contact you soon as it arrives after its long journey - you really are a sweetie!
    Hugs, Joy xo

    Hugs to you Robin, and your bathroom is looking fantastic.

  7. What a lot of interesting creatures there are on your walk! And what a lovely swim Jack was having! The goldfish are amazing....and I have only seen turtles in a zoo!
