Fusion: Citrus






With a bit of luck and a few Indian summer days headed this way I just may be able to squeeze in a couple more afternoons at the lake this week.  I always plan to sit in a beach chair, sip something fun and read the afternoon away........never happens.....

My last day at the lake involved:

~a nerf gun battle
~hauling wood for the campfire
~setting up and running (I use the word running loosely) an obstacle course with Emma
~counting and wrapping a zillion pennies from Emma's collection of piggy banks
~keeping four dogs from rolling in a dead fish (ok I only kept three away.....the littlest snuck by us, had a grand time and then needed a bath)
~visiting with the neighbors and their brand new baby....

And then it was time to peel the corn and start the barbecue for dinner.  By the time I got back to that beach chair the mosquitoes were out so we called it a day........but I wouldn't change a minute of it...







Such wonderful inspiration at Fusion this week!  Use the sketch or the picture or both!

I hope you can enjoy a few more days in that beach chair. You deserve it! Your card makes me smile. A few citrus slices plus a fruity looking cocktail look like a great time to me!!

That sounds like a fun day - would love to join you one day (but forget the running part!) And this card is just delightful and makes me think of summer, which we are hopefully heading towards!
