Happy Canada Day !!!!
Canada was established as a self governing country on July 1st, 1867.
Canada turns 141 years old today : )
We were suppose to have a pool party with neighbours and friends today . . . but 3 out of the 4 of us have had a nasty flu bug recently. We decided it would be better to re-schedule the party for next weekend. So . . . we had a quiet day at home. We all feel better, but didn't want to pass it on to our friends.
Sometimes quiet is good anyways : )
My husband I and used the day to get some outdoor projects done. Our pool is new (only completed last Fall). There is still lots of "river rock" to be moved to the pool area . . . .
My sweet little flower baskets from Nova Scotia (purchased on vacation last summer) look nice hanging infront of the pool hut windows.
My husband built the steps off the side of the deck today.
The stone path we have started will connect the pool to the deck.
You can see the new stairs on the left and a bit of the path in this photo . . .
(it has been over 10 years now that she has passed).
They are like a smile from my Nanny every summer : )
My "buttercups" are in full bloom too
Cider is enjoying the beautiful weather ~ Sunny, wonderful breeze today and 82 degrees F.
