Just Breathe

It has been a busy few weeks.

Mike was away.  Taking another helicopter to Montreal with an airshow stop along the way.

The kids finished school.  Great grades and effort for everyone.  I can't believe I have a child going into junior high next year. 
The weather was wet to say the least so I ran outside during a short break in the rain and put grass seed on the lawn.  It has since gotten much greener.
One night we had a storm creep up on us that brought this:

Yup.  That is hail bigger than marbles.  I just went back inside and didn't look until morning.  Last time we lost the gardens and had huge holes punched into the greenhouse.  This time....nothing.  It was like it never happened. Awesome!

Mike got home and had to do a parade the following day.  Change of Command.  For the first time I was escorted to the front seating.  It was so nice to see him in his dress uniforms.  I rarely see him out of his relish.

He's dead centre being passed by the big guys.  Sorry about the light.  The hangar door was open to the right and I don't know how to take photos in that light.

The airshow went by and Canada Day too.  Here's what my wonderful husband made for me over the last few days:

 Right outside my back door so we have a place to relax in the shade.  Dan brought me the tree stumps for my planters and the rock was dug up by Mike.  I love it.

So you can see that I have been taking it easy...ha ha.

We are going to embrace the summer and all it's activities.  Take each day at a time and take photos.


  1. Kathleen I love the deck...and you can take it with you when you go...that's Awesome!!!

  2. I'm glad that the hail didn't really have an effect! I also remember last year where people's windshields were cracked.
