Summer in a "Nut Shell"


One more week of warmth then the north winds will strike.  Puddleducks off to school, parents charting extra activities and Nana coming into her own? 
Summer was filled with family this year! Youngsters getting older, wide eyed weddings of hope and promise and sisters visiting every ten years.  



Best Man & Maid of Honour twice this summer!    


Wonderland experienced in an afternoon, watching a garden grow ..all is calm.


My two puddleducks attracting girls!  Where has the time gone?



In between excitement I have joined a beading swap, held my breath writing to fantastic PenPals during a summer long snail mail temper tantrum and watched very carefully for a sign of direction.
As any maturing adult would do when faced with indecision I run to the woods! 


Peak! I see You!



Did I or didn't I eat some? 


Lake Nippising , North Bay Ontario Canada




Return to the beginning , that's my motto! Our new home is comfy and quaint, simple and 
above traffic.  Fluffy clouds drift by my windows and birds keep me posted on weathering events. 
Music plays to my ever changing moods and back to basics cooking .  For extra company I have 
Enlisted some help!  


The promise of Faeries !  I'm sold!   The lady at the market gave it with my vegetable purchase because she felt it appeared done for.  Little does she know! Right blog friends! We have magic on our side!

Outdoors is the Best Medicine!

PHello my wonderful virtual friends!  Hope you ALL are doing fabulous!  What a trying time this is indeed. 
Chain reaction of insanity , depending on your perspective, and humans destroying each other daily. 
Evolution has provided us with witnessing mass destruction in REAL time!  If your like me, I feel so tightly wound, wishing for the days of nightly news, a reassuring voice, that the powers that be have it under control.   Social media has only contributed to my anti social tendencies!  Sharing our minds and opinions is dividing what would have been otherwise superficial politeness .  
I get ......"your Canadian right? "  Does this imply..." What does our countries business have to do with you"?    That in itself bushes my buttons!   It sure saves me valuable time vetting online relationships.
Yes, I look for " birds of a feather" at this point in my time.

Feeling stress taking hold, I packed up our new to us 4X4 and headed to the forest!  Every nerve was rebelling the loss of disconnect, I secretly laughed at this sign of addiction! Oh it was an internal battle for several hours, being GEMINI I drew from my other personalities to get me through the withdrawals!
Oh the calm, the green, smells of burning wood, BBQ and various music luring me on.  Spectacles Crane ( my husband) was thrilled to be back in his homeland, amongst his family, remembering juvenile times.  Our years of responsible, melting away!

While he went to chat , I grabbed my camera and nervously ventured off on my own.  Slowly at first, questioning every step.  Then, suddenly, that adventurous, roamer surfaced and off I went!  Really looking at everything, smiling at strangers, exchanging niceties, walking on!  Felt as though I was shedding an aging skin, I began thinking of possibilities, the future!  

Of course I've condensed, but truly I was amazed how letting GO! is possible to the willing.

Enough chatter, here are photos of our wonderful weekend at Georgian Bay Ontario with my in- laws!











Truth in the flames! Always! 


Thank you for visiting, August is shaping up to be epic! Yes! I will share it all!

Off to enjoy home-made gifts, thank you sooo much! they are disappearing fast!





Get outdoors and outside yourself!   I strongly recommend it!  xoxoxoxoDebi
