Getting ready for Black Lake......

Just a few more days and we will head out for our vacation at Rogers Old Oak Camps on Black Lake in Hammond, NY.  It's a very long drive, but there is no place we would rather be for good fishin'.  And, like last year, we are blessed to have our son and family join us for nearly a week.  That in itself makes the trip more than worthwhile.  It will be wonderful to visit with them, play games with the kids and catch some big ones!!

But for now it's time to prepare.  The final wash day for clothes will be Wednesday.  Can't believe the clothes dryer decided to stop working just a few days before we leave.  I'll wash and make a trip to the local laundromat to dry.  In the meantime we have started our packing..........  All the important stuff.... the crock pot - the wine glasses ( of course!).

And since it is the summer season and hurricanes are possible we've  cut the palm branches,  cleared the lanai, moved the patio/deck furniture inside as well as any/all artificial plants.

Rich cleaned the filter on the pump for the lawn watering system, cut back bushes and sprayed for weeds.  I replanted my peace lily and moved that along with the other patio/porch plants to the front yard where they will get the necessary shade/sun and watering.  And take a look at our pineapple plants!! We have three of them that are already showing great growth.  If you look closely, the one on the bottom(center) has one already started in the middle, and it looks like another on each side.    They should be ready to eat when we get back.

Getting excited..........but will miss our friends.  Wish they could come with us!!!!
