We take care of the land...it takes care of us.

We're just a couple of country dwellers......

that love nature, hunting, fishing, gardening, campfires, crafting, cooking, canning, laughter and living!!

Ya just never know what I'll blog about next...

So visit us often!

Go Jump In The Lake


How's your summer?



Any time to just "be"?

Me neither!!

My summer to-do list
just keeps growing as fast
as the weeds around here...

But, we did manage to take
a break away from
the usual grind of work,
weeds, and canning
for some lakeside
fun with 
my sister's family...


The invitation said...
A lakeside retreat
with plenty of food and fun

Well,
she had
me 
with 
"lakeside"




It didn't matter to me,
we had no fancy boat to 
stroll around on the water...

the view from the shore
was good enough 
to get me through 
another South Dakota winter!

With coffee cup in hand,
the sights and sounds
of  the water make for
a blissful morning...




Plenty of flowers to photograph...











Chillin' out...



No heavy agenda needed
to keep us entertained...

just a little
scavenger hunt
to keep the twin grand-daughter's
busy between campfires...



Their Aunt Tara would
keep them circling the cabin
looking for things on the list...




When their sand buckets were full,
it would be story time on the dock...



I hear Grandma B tells 
a pretty good Wizard of Oz
(only if she doesn't forget
the witch part!)








Summer fun at the lake...






























Ahhh, what a relaxing weekend it was!!

Smore's anyone?



See you next summer
back at the lake!!

Thanks Mr. and Mrs. B
for the invite!
