June 16 – Clean

Sunday, June 17th, 2012


I spent the day cleaning the Terry trailer inside and out. We’ve had 2 weeks of extreme pollen counts as the pine trees are launching their clouds of yellow pollen on the wind.

All clean for the season now, I hope!

June 3 – Sunday Brunch

We had neighbors over for Sunday Brunch on the deck. We had a great meal and lots of fun!

Honey, I’m ready for a Cosmo!

June 1 – Back Home!

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

We arrived back home on Memorial Day and quickly set to work cleaning up and getting reacquainted with the neighbors. We discovered a new resident, a Momma duck sitting on seven eggs along the canal. We kept the dogs away for a few days and she finally left with at least 3 ducklings (we hope).

At least 3 eggs hatched.

We set out all the outdoor furniture and added a new element!

Grandpa’s lantern has a new home!

Robert found this lantern in the garage of Grandpa’s house at Lake Cora, cleaned it up, brought it home and found the perfect spot for it. It lights up our deck in the evenings.

We made it back to Oregon! We stopped in the old mining town of Sumpter to visit the Memorial Day Weekend Flea Market. A helicopter was giving 10 minute rides so we climbed onboard!

A beautiful spring day to reminisce about good times at Lake Cora!

And another chance to get the famous Vornsand bear hug from Aunt Tootie!
