Spring Moments By The Lake

April 2019 Lake Simcoe

Some of you probably know I have been going on drives to enjoy our Lake Simcoe here In Ontario, Canada. Usually with no destination in place. My truck just tales me somewhere to the water.

It’s absolutely beautiful to feel the wind in my hair. To listen to the waves crushing onto the shore.

There are different seasons I have seen up there.

Today I’ll show you how it was last April… Pretty windy and rather cold.. bust totally peaceful.

I’ll show you more warmer days soon too…. Sunshine all around now….

Canadian Tiger Swallowtail

Also known as Canadian Tiger Sallowtail….

Beautiful to see them flutter by… I honestly can say I was so happy to see this one flying around in my backyard. Have not seen one for so many years. We usually have the Monarch butterflies in our area.. but seeing this Yellow Tail butterfly made me happy…

I since have seen even a Black Swallowtail. But it zipped along so fast and not resting anywhere on my flowers a picture just was not possible….

Does anyone know if this one belongs to the monarch type Butterflies family?

Nothing Is Promised In This Live….

It is my moments to go for a drive and just drive …

Not to long ago on a Tuesday…

……no destination in mind usually.

My Pick up truck takes me along the county roads… I make sure I know how to back track my ways too. GPS yeah but my GPS is driving on a road that does’t exist most of the times … LOL

Honestly my truck has taken me to the Lake Simcoe lately … or to the smaller Churches around them. I was about to leave that church ground when something just pulled me over on my walks….

A Rose found just like that in the grounds… In Moments when I needed a sign…My Dad always loved roses… What are the odds of that…

Totally amazing to see the old grave stones and the beautiful doors and windows on the churches.

Sailing On Lake Simcoe

Never thought I would love it so much… The thrill of a heeled sailboat.. OMG!

Told the rest of the crew on the boat!

….yeah all man haha.

That they should install a web cam to get my expressions and alllll…… my “OHHH NOOOO’s !!!” I can just see the crews laughter inside…hahah I am too.

What am I doing now when the Sailboat is heeling over so much… OHH NOOO….!!!! AGAIN.. with me holding the tiller that the toe rail is in the water…..Yuck…omg oi feel the sailboat id going to keel over….ahhh

But… believe me.

Yess anything else is boring….LOVING IT. :-)

Though I have to say the more you go out the more you get used to all of it… Totally love opening up the sailboat and have it ready for the rest of the crew and YESSSS Skipper! It is my time to learn all the terms for the boat … And feel the beauty of being on the water.

What am I going to do in the Winter months now… ice Sailing..LOL or perhaps Ice Fishing… maybe signing up for curling…

    Florida In February

    OMG hard to believe we left in this snow/ice storm on February 6th.

     

    Has been already over a month ago that we where in Florida enjoying that sooooo beautiful sunshine every day by +24 to 28 and water at +16 . I was swimming in it every day on and on….just so perfect.

    Sunset right by the beach every night…I am still looking for the star in that evening sky every night, my start always full of love and happy moments walking in the water looking for the shells. Even thought I could not bring home some of the coral that washed up on the shore…..nooo noooo you can’t do that!!

    My fun moments taking pictures of birds flying by…or posing for me.

    Smiles Yes  “I am a bigger kid then You thought I am” …smiles that is me. Always will be that way…That is my Life, my Love, my life of happiness.

    More then I am That is me.

     

    Sleeping on the balcony hearing the waves crushing onto the shore.

    Seeing the stars and full moon.

    Hearing the birds in the morning waking me up….My Dream always.

    I’ll never forget that kind of feeling of Peace.

     

    From My Heart To Yours

    2018-11-06 11.42.14 - CopyOh no, how time has gone by since my last post.

    I kind of got side tracked by posting on Facebook. How could I, you may ask? Well it seems to be much easier to do that with my phone.

    Yes, I know I can do blog-posts on the phone too. But it seem to be a little more tedious for someone like me that is not so computer oriented. LOL 2018-11-20 15.36.43 - Copy

     

     

     

    So we all had the Fall season come and go… see some of my pictures from the fall.

    Well guess what, we had minus 17 on November 22nd. A brisk walk through the local park that morning and again at night, so beautiful.

    Perfect Water Droplets

    img_4971Probably one of the last nice hot summer evenings outside in my backyard with +28.

    Cut the grass put water on some plants. Even racked up the dead grass.

    So now enjoying a peaceful evening with a glass of wine and looking for some great pictures.

    I have one for sure I absolutely love water droplets on plants. But what about mushrooms growing on a log? Or even a plant we call clover that we don’t need I. The grass or garden. Beautiful too

    Have a wonderful evening
