Summer photos...

Where does the time go?

Here we are nearly at the end of July.

It's been a good time for us, lots of sunshine, some smoke, picnics,

friends visiting, trips being planned.

Happy weekend to our family and friends.



Summer, sunny, hot Okanagan Days..

The apricots are ripening.

The sunflowers are blooming.

There are days when the smoke from all 155 fires burning

fill our valley.

There are days when our air quality was worse than New Delhi.

There are days that are sunny and clear.

These are days for late evening walks and early morning gardening.

These are all good days to be in the Okanagan.



All is good again...

Now that Claire was back with her Mom and Dad,

she was her usual good spirited happy little self.

We went visiting, thrifting, walking, crafting,

and playing.

I went with Jeremy and Julie to watch her at her Karate class.

I am glad they will bring her back to West Kelowna this summer.

She told me she just missed her parents so much and

that was a lot of pressure on her.

My sweet little girl.




So Homesick..

We picked Claire up in Hope on Sunday afternoon.

This morning, Monday,

I drove her back to Port Coquitlam.

She was so homesick.

I will just spend a couple of days looking after her while

Julie works this week.

I felt to sad for her, missing her parents so much.

They will come up as a family in August

so Claire will continue to have a good experience with us in Kelowna.

Off to meet her Dad after school.

Both Jeremy and Julie teach at their

International Summer School.





My girl...

On Sunday we are driving down to Hope to pick up Claire.

We get to have her for 5 days.

I have all kinds of fun things planned

to do with her.

Swimming and beach time will definitely be one of them

Maybe go pick some cherries,

maybe we will craft and make pompous,

maybe she will hit some golf balls with her Opa.




Happy July 1st...

It was really really warm/hot here yesterday.

32C = 90F.

Thankfully there was a breeze blowing.

Down at the lake it is always about 10 degrees cooler.

I hope wherever you spent your day, you enjoyed.

Canada's 150 Birthday.
