National Scrap booking day and I got nothing to share :(

Well I think its safe to put the plow away for the season, lol.
Hubby and I had to go to our camp/cottage this morning. He took the plow off of his truck and then moved the vehicles around. So when we went to leave this is what I saw when I opened the gate of our fence.
I laughed so hard. Doesn't it look like my jeep has this huge plow on it. LOL.  It even matches, teehee.
 This is why we had to go to our camp/cottage.
The tarp blew off the trailer. We keep a tarp on it because we noticed it leaked one year. It hasn't leaked since hubby and his dad put on the tarp.
It took awhile with just the two of us. But it wasn't so bad, a few curse words and I had to walk away once or like I said not too bad, lol.
As I am the lighter of us two, I was the one that got to walk on the roof. There were boards laying on the roof so I didn't have to walk on the tin roof. Wouldn't need the tarp if I fell through, ;)
 Here is the view from the top of that roof. Oh spring how I love thee, well actually I love summer better.
The loons are back on the lake...and no I am not talking about Wayne and I. The birds, silly.
If you are wondering what that circle thing is, its our fire pit. We cover it up in the winter, so if we come out here during the snow, we can use it...if we can find it ;)
 Look some tulips. That's more than I can say for whats popping up here in my yard.
We got these at my nephew's wedding. They were giving the bulbs away instead of candy, so every time you looked at the flower you would think of them. Isn't that so sweet.
 Yup we still have a bit of snow up at camp. Mind you these patches were when Wayne plowed.
I saw a few robins and their nest. They make it under the boat every year :)
I also saw a couple rabbits. They still had their white paws and the tips of their ears were white as well.
Wonder when the fox will come....where there are rabbits, soon come the fox's.
 On the way home we saw a moose. We didn't stop so I took it in motion.
The reason this poor guy looks so rough is because they are loosing their winter it fur or hair?
I know today is National Scrap booking Day and I am suppose to show you all my wonderful creations. But the truth is I wasn't home most of the day.
I did get to work on (and finish) a project I was so excited to try my hand at.
It is so adorable. I just love how it turned out. is for a blog friend of mine and I don't want to share it until she gets it.
The hard part is I have a few more projects I want to get done for her, so it will be quite awhile before I can share it.

Heather started working today. She is greasing the trucks again this year for hubby's company. She also does odds and ends that need to be taken care of . So nice to have her working again :)

Hope you National Scrap booking Day was a fun one, and you got lots of creating accomplished :)

I hope you had a GREAT Mother's Day today :) :)

  11. Happy Mother's Day to you. Hope you are have a wonderful day with your girls.
    No projects for me for NSD, as I have been minding the grandkids. They are a handful, when you are not used to having little ones around all the time.
    But it has been great to spend some quality time with them.
    I head back to work tomorrow.

  12. what a lovely place. I know now why you love it so much. On the water. Summer must be so pretty there. Very relaxing.

    Had to giggle at the curse words and walking away. every married woman does it as some point. LOL
    Hope your Mothers day was special.
