VACATIONING AT HOME

the best place to vacation is at home!

quotes22

we’re almost completely moved in, being off this week we pondered where to go, what to do, I suggested  to vacation in the new house lol! so we packed up cloths, food & the dog

there seemed to be more geese than usual camped out in the yard, guess they’re starting to come back for the summer

OUR NEW VIEW

 

Out Door Wednesday is hosted by Susan over  at

http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/

we’ve recently bought  a home on the lake & I thought I’d share  some of my views, we have a beautiful flat yard that goes right out  to the lake, Canadian geese are everywhere, the grand babies  all  call it the vacation house lol!  coffee on the deck watching the sun rise in the mornings glistering across the lake to  sitting in the rockers on the porch watching the sun set it sure feels like vacation lol! be sure to click pic’s for a better view
