What a Week...

This last week has really been a roller coaster week.
After all the negotiations and the dealings I don't mind saying I felt spent.
But now it's settled and we have a new town to move to and a new dwelling to move in to.
I spent a good deal of today searching the yard for signs of Spring.
I found a Marsh Marigold in a flower bed.

 I found this. Whatever it is, I know it spreads easily.
And it blooms a pretty purple flower.
The gulls were noisy today and seemed to be
having a gay ole' time in the water!
The water was so calm and clear today I could see the rocks shining through.
When the lake is shimmering it always reminds me of Anne of Green Gables.
After crossing over a rumbling bridge she looks back at the water and says,
 "Good night, dear Lake of the Shiny Waters. I always say good night to the things I love, just as I would to people. I think they like it. That water looks as if it was smiling at me.
L.M. Montgomery
And now I say good night to you from my own shiny waters.
I think Anne and I might have been kindred spirits
had she been for real......



  1. Very beautiful. I love the rocks showing through the water. It's so clear and clean. The sunset is beautiful. I'm glad you know where you are going next. Exciting times for you but I'll bet you'll miss that lake view. Hugs, Pam

  2. So glad to hear you have your home situation settled. Bet you are worn out. Great pics, I love the one of the rocks in the water. Picture Perfect!

  5. What a coincidence - I just finished reading "Before Anne of Green Gables" the story of Anne's life before she went to Matthew and Marilla.

    PEI is a beautiful place, I was born and brought up there!!

  6. What a beautiful sunset over the waters and I love that quote from Anne of Green Gables. Good luck with your move! I'm glad to see that spring is almost there!

  7. sounds like you were ready for this beautiful relaxing place, best of luck in your new place,

  8. What lovely pictures. I particularly love the one of the lake with the pebbles!! The colours are lovely and the water so clear!! Joan

  9. Gorgeous. and ANNE OF GREEN GABLES is one of my favorite books. In fact....I collect them. I like to find different editions of it.

  10. These pictures are soo pretty, and Anne of Green Gables is one of my all time favorites. A perfect line for that scene. Hope the move goes well. It's nice to know where you will be. Looking forward to hearing more.

  11. So glad to hear that everything is moving right along and you already have another, you two don't fool around! Can't wait to hear all about your new place and the move..when will it be?

    Love the photos, especially the sunset! ox

  12. I'm so glad for you, and I can't wait to hear about your new home!

  13. Kimberly,

    I'm happy to hear you've closed on your old & new home.

    Beautiful pictures, I'll miss your pictures of the lake. I hope your close to the lake at your new place.

  14. I will always think Anne was real. I can't wait to see where you end up.
    I know you will miss your lake.

  15. Your photos are beautiful and yes, that does look like the Lake of Shiny Waters. I know if Anne had been real we would definitely have been kindred spirits, and I think you and I are so, I'm sure you would have been Anne's kindred spirit, too.
    I would love to know where you are moving to, curious people like to be in the know. :)
    Hugs, Cindy

  16. Your shiny lake is beautiful, Kimberly. You will miss it when you move. Or maybe there will still be a lake in sight? You know we are all curious about where you are going! :)

  17. I'm glad to hear things are settling down for you. Spring is looking quite pretty up your way. :)

  18. good to find hidden flowers when you first move into newness.. glad you up dated -- been excited to hear word -- Thrilled for you all the selling and move is behind you know.. wink! Now can't wait to see your home sweet

  19. Beautiful shots, and I am glad the stress is over for you.
