Life gets in your eyes

Many apologies for my long absence in writing and visiting. 

Nothing is wrong - I'm just distracted, in a good way, by life.

 Yellow finch at the feeder that I installed for Gerrit's pleasure last summer.

 Tulips in the Queen's Garden

I've been here:

 New Orleans for the high school graduation of my nephew.

And here:
 Beautiful and beloved Wisconsin...

to attend the high school graduation of my nephew 
(yes, 2 nephews graduating!  
Luckily not the same weekend)...

...and to begin preparation of cakes and marzipan carrots 
for a graduation party 2 weeks hence.

Then I was here:
 in London, for a wonderful short trip with my brother, sister-in-law, and nephew.

Then we went here:

 to The Hague, Netherlands (Royal Palace)
where we were met by Gerrit's older daughter Karin & her family

and then I went home with Karin
and did a little weeding in their big garden allotment
and a lot of catching up with the family.

And then back to Wisconsin...

to finish the cakes (carrot and strawberry) and attend the graduation party.

There is more, but right now I need to be on my way to O'Hare to meet Karin, 
who is flying in to spend a week with my family
for our annual family vacation in Wisconsin.

It should be a happy week.

  1. Wow, you have been busy! Lucky you to have gone to London.... (envious sigh) :)

    Those cakes look delicious. Enjoy your family time (and Wisconsin time too).


Thank you!
