Whew, what a great week that was. We had a super time at the cottage. The only bad part about it was that we had to come home.
I woke up one morning and caught the sunrise. I took a picture of the lake with the mist rising on it and a picture of the front of the cottage.
I have a hard time getting good photos of our dogs. They rarely sit still. I did manage to get this photo of Chinook. I love it. Chinook is a Shepherd mix and her arthritis is really slowing her down. She loves the water but the stairs down to the lake were just too much for her this year. She did go down but we really discouraged it.
Not far from the cottage there's a little in that for some reason keeps several llamas on their property. Joe and I stopped in for a little visit one day. I really liked this one. I kept telling her (for some reason I just assumed it was a "she") that she was pretty. I think she knew it because she was very happy to pose for the camera.
One of the highlights of the trip for me was visiting the screaming heads in Burk's Falls. It's home to an artist who has creating HUGE sculptures in the fields surrounding his house (which is also a work of art).
This is the gate at the front of his house.
Another enterance to his property.
I'm not sure if he actually lives in the house or not. There is a trailer set up right beside the house and I suspect that that's where he may live. Anyways, this is part of his house.
The fields surrounding his house are full of the most incredible sculptures. Here's one of my favourite photos of Joe posing with one of the trees.
And lastly, here's a couple of photos of the trees.
While we were away I think I knit one more inch of the socks that I brought to work on. I wasn't too crafty although I did do quite a bit or reading. I'm reading the Stephanie Plum series which was recommended to me by Felicia. I only had two of the books with me and when I finished them on Thursday I was certainly left hanging. I dove into the next book in the series last night. I'm not sure how much sewing/crafting will get done until I've read all 13 books!!! (thanks Felicia!!)
I got some great mail while I was away that is yet to be photographed so I'll be posting about that later this week. I've missed my sewing machine and if I can get through the laundry and unpacking I might actually get re-acquainted with it today!
I have a zillion blogs to read now. I can't wait to see what I missed!!!
