Interesting Days

The last few days we've seen rain, wind, cooler temperatures and very warm temperatures. It hasn't been boring! 

We've checked out some of the stores when it was rainy. Sadly, the Thimbles Quilt Shop in Spooner, Wisconsin closed in December. There is another quilt shop in the same location - Cottage Treasures. The new shop does not have near the inventory and is more involved in long-arm services and photo transfer for memory quilts. 

One day, we found some fantastic strawberries and have been enjoying strawberry shortcake.

We hiked at Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary again. This time we hiked the Frances Andrews Trail and the Bear Trail. 

The terrain was very different than the other day when we hiked.

We saw a gorgeous lake but as you can see, the day was overcast and gray.

After we returned home, I found a tiny tick stuck on me. Ugh! Ray removed it. My brothers tell me it just wanted to be my pet. 

By Wednesday afternoon, the weather cleared and the sun came out. We enjoyed some swimming and more visits with family. More family has arrived and starting tomorrow, we'll see more every day for a while.

Last night Ray was shooting the moonrise from our beach so I decided to take a picture also.

It's been very warm today but we did get in a walk and then went to a really nice Farmer's Market with my oldest brother and his wife. Our great nephew chauffeured us - he just got his driver's license. I didn't get any pictures of the market - maybe next week. At the market we enjoyed maple root beer, homemade blackberry ice cream, and maple cream. We came home with some healthier food - strawberries, tomatoes, lettuces, radishes, green beans, sugar snap peas, new potatoes, and some fresh baked bread. 

Tonight we have some clouds so we may not see the moon rise in about 15 minutes. We do know that tomorrow will be another great day...
