...is arriving.
I don't mind this time of year. J and I spend more cozy time, more time cooking big batches of spaghetti sauce or lentils or soups on a Sunday afternoon with music playing and a glass of wine... this is what I think of when we come to this time of year.

Yesterday I realized that in the past few weeks J and I have had more time to spend together like we did before we moved from BC (where it was just us) to our prairie town (where the rest of my family lives and I grew up). When we moved here we lived with my brother and his family for 7 months, when we bought our house J's sister moved in with us the first week we moved in. So here we are, with J's sister spending more and more time with her new boyfriend, and us learning to be *us* again.

What happened to this week?
I was out watering the gardens tonight and when I opened the gate to the front yard I saw this on the fence...
I have always loved ladybugs and they are EVERYWHERE in my yard. In the spring our yard was overrun with them, I'm talking hundreds. Love it.

I missed my own foto friday because j and i went to spend the weekend with my mom and one of my sisters and her 3 little ones. My mom lives at a lake (hard life, right?) in a (very) little place she calls Jubilee Cottage... This was the first time all summer we had a chance to get out there. This year my mom didn't have the dock put out, she needs to have a new one built. Even though the season is about over, J spent her Saturday of the long weekend voluntarily building a 'sitting area' for my mom down by the water. J is a woodworker (I admit, it's a turn on) and a hard worker to boot. It was a serious 'awwww....!' moment for me when I came back to the cottage from being in town with my sister to see what J had done (all while looking after the dogs and 3 little ones). So, here's to you J... kisses!
Now, I didn't take any pictures of the dock-sitting area, but I can post some pictures from last summer and last winter from my mom's place for my foto-friday-on-a-monday.
Happy long weekend!
