 We are pleased to share the news of a new grandchild in our family! Ignatius Craig Wartman was born to son, Ryan, and his wife Kate, on Saturday, June 13th!  He weighed in at 7 lbs. 6 ounces, and mom and baby are doing well.  Big sister Lucy and brother Obie are most excited… congratulations and best wishes to this beautiful (and very busy!) family!

It’s June… does summer start now? Maybe?

Well, the stormy skies, clouds and rain continued this past two weeks!  Beautiful and green here!  We are mindful of those suffering from tornados and flooding in other parts of the country… hoping things smooth out for those suffering soon.

Our lettuce and spinach is up… just enough to notice the rows and see it there. Now, needing more sunshine to bring on the greens.

Tom also planted wildflowers and sweet peas… look forward to a bit of color as they bloom later in summer.

Out with the old;
     In with the new...

We have been in need of a new sofa, and after seeing Karen & Bob’s this past spring, we ordered one from a company in the Los Angeles area.  Had it delivered to us here at our campground and, after dismantling and disposing of the old sofa and having the carpet cleaned, the new sofa is now in place! The old one was a “hide-a-bed” type with an air mattress… took up the whole living room area when folded out, and was a pain. The new one is a “jack-knife” style with removable arms. We are most pleased, and think it looks nice with the afghan I made :)

We have now enjoyed a couple of mostly rain-free days and more sunshine, so Tom has started on the mowing.  Campsites and grounds sure look nicer with a bit of grooming. I used the weedwhacker yesterday and trimmed up the Labyrinth :)  No need to begin watering trees yet… thank you, Mother Nature!

So, that’s about it from here in our beautiful corner of the world! 
Be well, everyone!  Dianne & Tom
