Have a nice Memorial Weekend!

I feel like I'm always repeating myself, but we're at the log cabin for a long weekend! You're probably asking - doesn't that Shelley do any work? Ha,ha! We have kayaking, hikes, fishing and some landscaping planned. What are your plans for the weekend?

Everyone have a safe Memorial weekend and please remember those that have sacrificed for us and continue to do so! I look forward to catching up with you on Tuesday - my Internet is sporadic.

P.S. On June 6th, I will be exhibiting at the Gaylord, Michigan Arts & Crafts Show, so please stop by my booth (Shelley's Nature Store) if you get the chance! :-)

Animal Lover

I went to the Kirtland Warbler Festival last weekend and I saw everything but Kirtland Warblers - ha,ha! But there were plenty of animals and birds for me to fall in love with!

Me: Greg, can I have him?
Greg: NO! And what is he?

Me: How about this guy?
Greg: Look at all that hair! C'mon!

Me: Oh, oh! How about this beautiful Barred Owl?!!
Greg: You're not allowed to have an owl!

Me: If I was a licensed wildlife rehabilitator I could have all the hawks and owls I wanted!
Greg: Lord help me!

This is the life

Greg bought this frog and placed him by our small pond at our home downstate. I found this funny cuz he's such a "guy's guy" but this Frog appealed to him. This frog is "living the life" he said. Now I'm thinking we should bring the frog to the cabin and see how he likes it.

I was thinking of other items that would make life at the cabin extra nice....(besides my BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOG GREG!!!) I'm thinking a Hammock kind of like this one...

Now who will fetch me my stawberry banana daquiris? Maybe I can train the dog to....well nevermind!
