We have been at the lake house just about every day now. I will be happy once we get all the heavy furniture moved and we can stay at the lake house. Once moved there will be lots of things to do at the woods house to get it ready to sell. Of course we are so way off schedule in this move but can't be helped.
We are still getting allot of rain and severe t storms in Missouri. First day of summer it was pretty cool watching one come in over the lake. I caught a short video before all the hard rain.
Saturday was finally full sun and and beautiful-hot and humid and perfect for the boaters to come out and play-and they did. We had allot of fun watching them all-while eating our lunch and then later a light fruit snack.
A bit after lunch I brought out some homemade brownies, and sweet bing cherries. My drink is almost gone which was a sparkling water with fruit juice
Early morning these two groups of Canada geese swam by
And Sunday at the lake house-rained all day, a peaceful view of the lake as for the most part was not stormy-and quiet with no boats.
Hubs is still repairing things in the bathroom, I brought a few boxes in and then went through other boxes to find things I could put away. More handmade pottery pieces and flower vases found their new homes. I have allot that I need the furniture in place to be able to unpack those items. I did also bring in my two spinning wheels.
The last few weeks now I have been making our 2 pm main meal at the lake house. Learning how to use that electric stove-ugh I do Not like electric stoves at all I am all for cooking over fire haha.
I am getting the hang of it much better though. Learning I need to set the stove top burners to medium or lower to keep things from burning.
Sunday I made us a huge veggie salad with avocado slices, grilled chicken breasts, and Bush's white chili beans as a side dish. We still have sweet cherries left, and I also sliced up some of my gluten free fruitcake with a cup of tea for breakfast when we got there. While eating our main meal with a fun little visitor outdoors on the deck.
This is my other beverage reference-the Lipton tea was a mint tea
We decided to turn this cabinet into a bar area. We really don't drink all that much but when we used to go to Sam's wholesale club every few months or so we would purchase something new to try. Our friend Mr L a couple years ago bid on a liquor store's contents and won-he couldn't believe he won. lol So we picked up several different things really inexpensive from him. So we have a variety now to offer friends if they want something. Kinda fun.
I enjoy wine once in awhile so I was happy to have a special place for my crystal and hand thrown pottery wine glasses-I really love them
I decided to use my vintage wine box for wine bottles instead of threads in my craft room like it has been used for years now. It fits perfectly up on top of this cabinet That empty bottle was a special civil war commemorative bottle-one was red and the other a blue bottle. It has been awhile now but Hubs visited a friend that lives near Gettysburg and he had taken them to the winery.
On the second shelf behind the pottery wine glasses are these two special wine glasses for us. I bought them early in our marriage for one of our anniversaries. They are crystal from Japan with those beautiful birds. The glass is very very fine and thin At the time I bought these we were raising exotic birds and had a bird store selling both retail and wholesale.
I see I have ended up writing a very long post-hope you enjoyed it all I am really really missing not being able to craft or do art, so I have been spinning up yarn at both houses.
Happy T Day
