I Like Thursdays #20

20 weeks of I Like Thursdays! 
How fun!!

This week we spent some time at the beach.
Is this work or is this fun?
Ernie's work career was as a heavy equipment operator.
He had fun working with our son's tractor.
I like that he color coordinated his shirt to the tractor.

Lazy, treat seeking dogs. 

I wish I could remember the name of this plant.
The deer don't seem to like it but I sure do.

They do like the nasturtiums though. 
But only mine it seems.
The neighbor across the street that gave me the seeds,
his cover the whole length of his house and he has no fence up.
We have a fence so the deer jump it to get to mine.

I hope my orange geraniums have bloomed out when we go back.
There were lots of buds when we left.

I spent time reading, watching tv or videos and crocheting.
My favorite beach snack is cinnamon bears.
I play with my food.
Really I was wishing some of the grands were there 
so I lined up my bears and to send them a picture to let them know i missed them.

Our friends had a garage sale so we went over to hang out with them.
I took pictures of things and sent them to our girls.
We had to make room in the back of the truck for their/my stuff.
Pam spent years as a Home Interior Consultant so she had lots of pretties. 

It was fun to hear the comments from the peanut gallery.
Everyone liked our new chairs.

I'm sitting inside while Ernie is outside cooking bacon on the bbq.
He loves to cook on that little thing.
The bacon is in a cast iron skillet.

We went for a drive on the beach.
I love seagulls.

This is the goodbye, we worked really hard this week photo.
It looks great there.
We have plans for more trees and another rv parking spot.
It is after all a family compound. 

Now some fun from home. 

We had some fun sightings on the trail camera this week.

I've been working on the Wild & Goosey blocks.while at the beach.
Ernie had been napping in his chair covered up with a quilt and
 complained that it wasn't long enough to cover his toes and tuck under his chin.
So I decided to make W&G long enough for him a nap quilt. 
I wasn't going to do the sashing but now I am. 
It looks like my lap quilt just tuned into a nap quilt!

I printed my papers and had to make a sample block.
I think I'll be doing lots of sewing at the beach in the next couple weeks.

I got a new book today.
It's coming with me along with my post-its and my notebook for my list of next canning projects.
Just skimming through the book, I've found lots of new canning recipes to try. 

Thanks LeeAnna for inviting me to join in on the I Like Thursdays fun!

Wow- you have a place at the beach? Nice. I'm sure it's a lot of work to make it comfortable for all but it's a cool retreat. Fun post. mary

Those purple flowers are really pretty! I wish I could tell you their name, too, but I can't. Love the photo bombers in your trail cam!

Hi Judy! Lots of likes this week, and so many to chuckle at. Those dogs look so innocent even if they are treat seeking - can't blame them! They were doing a great job supervising after all. The beach place looks fabulous, and so does the nap quilt. And pressure canning - I used to do that with my mom way back in the day. I was a little scared of the pressure cooker. ~smile~ Roseanne
