Blogger Get-Together

Yesterday Sandy and I visited Celia of HHL and her partner Mr. G (they live about an hour North of us).  We left at 2:00 in the afternoon, the weather was beautiful and we had a great drive up. Most of it was by highway but we were in the country for a while.

We stopped on the side of the road so I could snap a few photos of a farm.  I love old barns...

Once we arrived and settled in the girls stayed behind at the house to chat while Mr. G and I hopped in his diesel-powered Kubota 4x4 for a tour of their very large property.  This thing is awesome, rugged as hell and will go through just about anything. We got tossed around as we plowed through mud, water, steep hills and large bumps.  Just a ton of fun.  Nutkin came along for the journey...

Things were still pretty dormant in the forest, not a lot of colour yet but I snapped a few photos...

After a while we returned to the house and I got to know Stella...

and Dolce (what a character)...

Then they put the barbeque and the oven on and we had a great meal of steak, sausage, salad and corn on the cob paired with a nice Merlot.

When it began to get chilly we adjourned inside the house (which is undergoing an ambitious renovation but will look amazing when done) and had bumbleberry pie with French vanilla ice cream, tea, coffee and lots of great conversation. We left at 9:30pm feeling very thankful for the chance to spend this time together.

  4. It was wonderful to see you both and have you over for a visit. As the weather warms up there will be so much more we can do and it will be great sitting by the stream enjoying a glass of wine. xo HHL
