Good Tuesday Morn Primfolk, hope all is well with you.  I`m still complaining about this heat and humidity, really bad today, tomorrow, gads all week.  We did have a fast little storm Sunday night, lots of wind, rain and small hail.  The ground was so thirsty, drank it up so fast it was like it never happened, still had to water the next day.  I  went out and checked the flowers, found a nice branch of Black Eyed Susans broke off, so out came the pruners and cut them up to put in a granate coffee pot on the table, will enjoy them inside the house. other then that, not much happening, will be in the house changing things up a bit I guess, to hot out for me, whew!!   Enjoy the day my friends, Blessings Francine.

Happy Sunday, hope all is  good with you fine folk, whew, hot, hot, hot out once again, I`m melting, feel like I am anyway.   We came back from the lake awhile ago, had a really great time, the weather was a little bit cooler then today, having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave today. Cam enjoyed being on the lake fishing and I enjoyed reading, sipping coffee by  the crackling fire, me happy.  Sat, morning we went to the little farmers market in town, bought, yellow,green beans, tomotoes, cukes and corn on the cob, then hit a yard sale coming back home, so glad we stopped, found some goodies, yahoo!!!!  Cute jam, jelly container, honey pot and a real neat McCoy log cabin cookie jar, has a chip but love it anyway, great for the lake I think, all for the price of $4.50.    We also popped into my Brothers Bday party in the afternoon then drove back to the trailer, nice it`s only 45 minutes away.    My brother Ron had a wonderful party, filled with laughter and lots of love.  My Sis-in-Law really outdid herself in the food department, barbacue steak, chicken, baked potato, salad, pork-n- beans, garlic bread, need I say more, my tummy was busting at the seams. Also a good old fashion homemade cake, so yummy, good time had by all.   So all in all another wonderful weekend, hope  you all had a great weekend  to.  Leave you with a few pictures of my yard sale goodies and the Birthday party, Blessings Francine.

Happy Friday Primfolk, finally enjoyed a cooler day yesterday, was so nice but back to the heat and humidity this weekend and week ahead, oh yuk!!   Can`t believe July is almost done, where oh where does the time go, so darn fast.    Went to Wal-Mart last night for a few things and drove past Home Depot and out in the front of the store were these pots of Sunflowers, oh my, I love Sunflowers, I had planted some this Spring but the never showed.  So Cam stopped the truck, I ran out and bought a pot of these beauties for $10.99 and on to Wal-Mart we went.    Came home, put them in an old steel pail and there they will be, so so pretty, I really like them.      We are off to the lake this afternoon, yipee!!!   but have to come back in tomorrow afternoon for my Brother`s Birthday cookout, yummy, wouldn`t miss that.   Thats whats nice about camping close to home, about 45 minutes away, so we can come and go when we want.       Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, stay and play safe, till next time, Blessings Francine.

Good Sunday Evening Primfolk, hope all is well with you and yours.  Well, it is one heck of a hot day here, temp is as of now still 102,  and the time here in Winnipeg is 7:30, guess it won`t be a cool night.  I`ve been hiding in the house since coming home from work, a little to hot for this ole gal, don`t get me wrong, there are some hot I like,  hot cup of coffee,  hot crossed bun,  hot potato, you get what I`m saying, but hot tempatures NOT!!!!  bring on the crisp fall days anytime now.     So once again I start redecorating, this time in the living room,  moved some of my  corn collection to the old pie keeper, had them up on a shelf before.  Bought the resturant pie display case years ago at Sidedoor Antiques, loved it right off, but the glass had a crack in one corner, still I wanted it so Rob sold it to me for $45.00 bucks.   I took it in to replace the glass, cost $25.00, so still loved the piece at the price of $75.00 dollors.    So this is what it looks like for now,  always like to change things up,  do you like???    Wishing you all a good night, Blessings Francine.

Good Saturday Morning, hope you are all safe and sound,enjoying another weekend.   This morning is really nice and cool,   but heading for high temps and humidity once again, when oh when will that humidity stay away.   Last night I  was feeling  a little restless, it`s summer I should be outdoors enjoying the flowers and evening but oh no, I just can`t take that heat, so I`m staying indoors.    Well, I get the  feeling to redecorate, change things up abit,  you know I was really bored when I started tweaking in the downstairs bathroom.   It was time to change up the toilet tank lid, really, I guess it needs a change of scenery, so thats what I did and this is what I came up with. Kinda sad but before I new it was bed time, so that was my exciting Friday night, sure hope your Friday night was a little more exciting, tee hee.   Enjoy the weekend, Prim Blessings Francine.

Good Afternoon, I`m back from the lake and I must say it was so nice and quite, we were the only campers there, oh how sweet it is.  Not that I don`t like  being with the other campers but I do enjoy the peacefulness, just Cam,Angel and myself enjoying nature.  Cam spent his time fishing morning  and evening, I sat by the fire,sipping coffee watching the antics of the chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits and beautiful birds, even some birds came to visit that I haven`t seen yet, a Red Breasted Nuthatch,oh so cute, a young Evening Grosbeck,I think and a Purple Finch,how excited was I, love the birdies.   I did go for a ride in the boat last evening, was very nice, Cam was fishing,  Angel and I went along for a ride,  I didn`t get my fishing lisence yet but hope to soon.   It is really humid today,yikes!!!!! I`m hiding inside the house now, shall catch up on my blog friends yey!!!              On the way out Tuesday afternoon, stopped into one of my favorite haunts, Appleseed Attic, the cutest little gift/ craft store.   The owner lives on the property in a beautiful old farm house  and she made this little store from one of the buildings that was on site when they bought the place. Not to sure what it was used for,maybe a henhouse, but they fixed it up and is now so sweet. I took a picture of the outside of it, and what I bought this time. I have found some really neat prim goodies there,like I said, one of my favorite places to stop into,  handy being on the way to the lake, oh ya!!!   The gal and her mom are so nice, great people,do not mind giving her my business at all.  So had a great few days, now back in the hot city,     hope all is well with yourselves, take care ,Blessings Francine.

Good Saturday Morning, so far the morning is nice and cool, aahhh,even slept with the windows open last night.  But, by this afternoon it will heat up again and that darn humidity  will come crawling back in, so for now the windows are  still open letting in the fresh air.   I took my cup of coffee outside to sit and enjoy the outdoors while it`s cool and this is what was greeting me, Peter Rabbit, so sweet.  He has been around for awhile now,  so far he`s not eating my flowers, just munching on the grass.   Also the pretty little Goldfinch was out having breakfast, such a sweet dainty bird, so happy for my bits of wildlife in the yard, makes my heart happy.   The simple things in life are grand, hope your heart will find happiness today to, Blessings Francine.

Cam  had a wonderful Bday cookout,  the Birthday boy had a great time and got lots of goodies, took  pictures but forgot  my camera back at the trailer, oh well, it will be there when we go back.     Friday evening  I had a bad fall, tripped stepping up onto the deck and I  face planted hard, cut my forehead,  swollen right  eye and  leg scrapes and  so sore,  felt like I was hit by a semi and looked like I was to.   Woke up Sat. feeling even worse,but did enjoy the family barbacue,thanks to hugs from my Mommy,  by Sunday I`m sporting a black eye, today the top of my eye and underneth is a bright purple and almost swollen shut.   Those darn flipflops really sent me for a flipflop, guess I should learn to walk,  but it could have been worse to,   I could have broken something or other,  now it`s  looking like  me  and Primitive Annie could be sisters, tee hee.   And how was your weekend???    Blessings Francine.
