Settling In...

A view from my balcony.  Early each morning these ducks swim away from shore towards the middle of the lake.

The trees are bare at this time of year, but it makes for a better view of the water, and the late afternoon sun.

Just to my right, is this view of the shoreline. Too bad those power lines get in the way. but I was standing on the front balcony when I took this.
It is early morning as you can see by the soft pink sky.

Now how did these little monkeys get in this post? Unfortunately, the light was not right for posing on Grandma's windowsill, but I couldn't resist adding these.

Oh, what a lovely view! Fun to watch the ducks go about their business! Adorable grands you have!

What a wonderful view you have. We looked at one place that had a view of the Atlantic, but it was much over our budget. Isn't it fun molding our new homes to fit our personalities?

you have a lovely view there, although it does look rather chilly! Except for those little monkeys that is...they are sneaky like that over here too! Happy Holidays.

Oh the kidlets are beautiful and the view so lovely. Looks like you've settled into a nice place, Wendy.

Re: your comment on my blog. I hope that if you'll be visiting your sister at some point that you'll be able to factor in a get together a couple of towns over, as well. Open invite. :)

You have such a lovely view, Wendy, though I especially like the view with the "little monkeys":) So good to hear from you, and I'm so glad to know you are settling in in your new home. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas; of course, having grandkids around always makes the holiday brighter.
