Things To Do

Summer's here - and for once it is sunny with blue skies, white fluffy clouds and a gentle, warm breeze!  Child No.3 had her last exam yesterday and we can all now relax for ten days until No.1 Son's results are known!

Photo - Paeony June 2012
I wish my blog had smell-o-vision so that I could share this paeony properly!
There's plenty to do though - gardening while the weather permits, de-cluttering in advance of No.1 Son's return with ALL his "stuff" after four years away - eek!!! - and several interesting crafty things to occupy me.

First off there's Rinda's Summer Scavenger Hunt which starts today.  I looked on in awe and envy last year while blog friends collected a diverse and eclectic series of photos during the summer months.  This year I shall be having a go too :o)

Then this weekend there's a Cyber Crop at one of my favourite on-line scrappy shops, A Trip Down Memory Lane.  There are already class lists and a timetable posted but the fun starts in earnest on Friday night here on their blog.

And, as if that wasn't enough, the following weekend there's also a fun-looking event planned over at Jennifer's Jumbles which will help me get organised.

I had to take a break from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog this month due to my operation, but I'll be back in action with July's kit soon.

Hellooo! Long time no visit...sorry, it's been chaos.
Hope you are recovering well from your op?
Sounds as if your house will be "standing room only" over the summer, with everyone (and their stuff!) at home.

Love the list of "Things to Do" - thank you for sharing it.
I also love the big pink peony. Funny, I posted a huge and gorgeous rose on my blog today, in a post about the sunny garden this morning. (there are 2 posts there today - unheard of!)

What a gorgeous peony!
The sites you mentioned sound interesting...I will have to take a peek at them...the organizing one sounds great!
Hope you are feeling stronger!

Thanks for the shout-out! The more the merrier. I'm in for the organization blog hop as well!

I wish you had smell-o-vision as well! The peony is gorgeous :) Enjoy having a full house.

Exams over here too, so we are starting to take it easy even though it's hardly warm enough for gardening. I'm looking forward to the scavenger hunt too

Yes, we have exams too! Hope you are recovering well. I can't wait to take part in the atdml cyber crop too!

That's a lovely photo, peonies are a favourite of mine. Enjoy having your son home and Rinda's Scavenger Hunt. Thanks for the reminder, I'm joining in so look forward to seeing your photos.

Yeah for peonies and exams being over. Exciting times having son 1 come home and everyone getting used to each other again. ATDML is one of my favourite shops too - I'll have a look at the scavanger hunt - not been taking photos much this last month.
