We worked outside yesterday morning, had an early lunch then headed out to visit friends.

First stop was this beautiful log cabin being built by Karla and Mike. It will be off grid and uses the same solar system we have. Mike is doing most of the work himself and he is doing a beautiful job.

I know they will spend a lot of time out on this deck enjoying the view.

Next stop was Pat and Jeff's place in Haliburton. They still have lots of fall colour around their lake.

Here Mary enjoys Lisa'a new baby Mason on Pat's porch. It was great to see everyone and have some time together.

Their neighbours came over for a visit and then it was time for us to head home.

Thanks for supper Pat, your pumpkin pie was delicious.

Safe travels everyone.


  1. So glad you were able to get over for a visit. Your pictures of our lake are again wonderful !! What an eye you have for photography Art. It was great having you share our "leftovers" and have a chance to see my Mother and brother Brien along with Lisa, Matt, Neil and Mason. What a gorgeous quilt Neil now has. Mary you are a saint. What a keepsake for our little man. Enjoy your time away, rest up and enjoy your FART !!!! LOL

    1. Sorry Art and Mary I should have clarified the FART myself. LOVE the anachronism.....must share it with my quilting friend here. Talk to you soon and will count down the days till Mary and I can enjoy the Huttonville gang !!!

  2. Dear Readers;

    FART as used by Pat is an anachronism for Fabric Acquisition Road Trip. Hope that clarifies any misconception.
