had a lovely time with my girlfriends this past weekend. Its just beautiful at my aunts cottage and the weather was perfect.
we relaxed and created and and ate and drank... and just enjoyed the lake!
Just exactly what we all needed. My aunt is so sweet to offer her beautiful cottage up for us to use.
we made pinwheels and patriotic cones, firework dolls, and banners.. I really didnt get a lot of pictures of the things we created... duh!!
but I did snap a few. we made our typical mess, painting, cutting, glueing and glittering! such joy!
and we ate and drank!
we went out to eat on friday night for a nice dockside meal..
the weather was perfect and we were visited by ducks! (forgot to take my camera!)
mudslides were the drinks of choice this year.
And of course any frozen drink should be drank by the water!
The lake is gorgeous there. though we didnt go swimming. we probably should have.. but after Sandy saw a giant blue fish swimming by the dock.. I was pretty much thinking he could swim by himself! lol!
waking up in the mornings and sitting out on the deck enjoying this view is just so awesome.
and of course this was the weekend of the "supermoon" I tried to get a picture of it.. but seriously though the moon is always beautiful, I didnt find it anymore super then any other time.. except that it was over the lake.. and that definitely brings it up a notch! lol!
I made this watermelon, kiwi salsa... omg.. I ate most of it by myself. Brenda didnt eat any because it had onions in it and Sandy wasnt sure she liked the cilantro.. but I'm telling you.. take it from me... this stuff was delish! so much so, that I'm including the recipe for you here.. you should try it!
