Saturday Ritual followed by family visits

Got up on Sat morning to discover I hadn't pack either one of my hair brushes! The only thing I had was a little tiny pocket book size! Susan needed to go to Tesco's (the english version of a W*lmart super center) to pick up some last minute things for our family get together.
This one is brand new & eco-friendly!

The *trolley/greeter guy posed for me

They did not carry hair brushes........they may now though, as they had so many requests for them today! (all three of us ask three different clerks for them)

When we got back Susan's mother & father were there with lunch & the Sat newspaper which has the "super duper" weekly crossword. Nigel's son Barry & his girlfriend Zoe also came around(they live next door). Lunch is always sandwiches made with crispy hot french bread followed by jam die for! The crossword gets passed around & everyone participates in solving it. Nigel & Susan have what we call the "reference library" at the top of the stairs & the rules are - anything can be looked up in a book, you can collaborate with each other but no "googling" answers before Mon AM. Usually Nigel will check with Susan's mother late Sun to see how she's doing but really wants to have his solved before then!

Later on in the afternoon Greg & Jennifer showed up, then their daughter Ruth with hubby Jason & their children James, Daniel & Evie. Greg's son Adam along with his girlfriend Michelle also came. Then a little while later Nigel's other son Kevin with his girlfriend Kayleigh joined the party.
This is Daniel - doesn't he have a "cheeky" face?

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
