MEMORIAL WEEKEND IS UPON US

For those of us in the states, it is Memorial Weekend, and the beginning of my 6 day weekend! And we are thankful to those who sacrificed so much courage for this country! What is everybody up too??? I'm going out of town later tonight to Virginia to visit family for a picnic, and a pit stop in Rehoboth Beach on my way back, to get my dance on with a friend . It's already been a relaxing day. Spring is now entering summer mode......scenes from my 5 mile hike up at the lake this morn......only minutes from my flat...........
 
 



The lake is a huge one, its always so peaceful up there. I took a canoe out after my walk , and then enjoyed the wildlife preserve at the one end of the lake. Once back I made my morning coffee and a light breakfast while enjoying a fury of activity on the finch socks!!!!!!!!
 
As you can see their bright yellow has returned!!!!!!

And in other news Foxy has been sited with two new pups. And Stanley and Helen, the two nesting mallards are trying to defend there own. Yikes. I must have a conversation with fox , and tell her to mind herself, it jus ain't fittin, I tell you.
 
I'll return next week, so you all have a nice Memorial Weekend.How are you feeling summer coming in your zip code? Have a good one!
*XOXOX*

  4. that bridge reminds me of the one in "dirty dancing"; baby was practicing her steps.

    speaking of dirty dancing, is that what you will be doing in rehoboth? and will you be seeing my boyfriend mark and his husband whilst you are there?

    1. Your right, I remember that bridge, but the only dancing I've done on it is the horizontal mumbo! I will have to look Mark up when I have more time there. I haven't seen him his the legendary Dust Bunny Weekend.

  33. WOW! That looks like a beautiful lake!!!! I have one near my house and very secluded. The dock you show looks like one a sunbath on. And its secluded enough that I can lay naked on it, and then jump in in the lake. Nothing like nature. Finch!!!!! Holy, they like you
