Weekend Waterview

weekend-waterview

I hope your weekend is just ducky! Our resident Mallards made a new friend recently. A domestic Pekin duck. . . They’re unable to fly, too heavy to get airborne. That combined with her lack of camouflage makes her a “sitting duck” on the lake. I breathe a sigh of relief when I see her swimming…

Weekend Waterview and Tidbits

Happy Sunday! We took an early morning boat ride, enjoying the sunshine and a nap on the pontoon. Flying our flag for 9/11 with some plane contrails visible in the blue sky. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on White Dog Therapy and your thoughts and prayers for our family. Your comments were so touching they…

White Dog Therapy

zoe-and-maddie

Sometimes the best therapy comes on four legs. With unconditional love and licks. . . And a laugh when you need it. Maddie and Zoe were the best therapy for my mother-in-law after my father-in-law passed away. Perfectly sized at 4 and 8 lbs, to sit on her lap and keep her company. We kept them for a…

Weekend Waterview: Boating with Dogs

DSC_5810-001

We haven’t been boating much this summer for one reason or another. But it’s one of our favorite things when it’s not too dog gone hot. Early mornings or late evenings are our preferred times for a ride, avoiding the heat of the day. There’s nothing like feeling the wind in our ears. . . Or…

Sailing into Summer: Nautical Fun on the Pontoon

Nautical Pontoon and Salad Boats!

I’m weighing anchor and sailing into summer with a little nautical fun on the pontoon! The summer boating season is definitely underway on the lake with our warm (hot!) weather. Towels provide a tablecloth and absorbent seating and pillows keep us anchored for a little nautical fun! Rope cocktail plates, purchased a couple of years ago from Pottery Barn,…

Chloe-Aproved: Almond and Poppy Seed Loaf Cake

DSC_0787-003

 Is it cold where you are this morning? Mother Nature is definitely fickle this time of year and after our mild March weather and temperatures in the 70s and 80s, we’re below freezing this morning. I picked these violas yesterday that I planted back in the fall, which are fortunately cold-tolerant and will rebound from our cold snap. Grab yourself…
