Walking on a frozen lake is still a novelty to me! Hope you had a lovely Sunday.

Sunday Snapshots for Summer #2


Every Sunday needs a porch for gathering family and friends, soaking up the warm weather, and enjoying good company. Vintage lawn chairs are a nice addition, too.

The Vermont State House with its gardens in full bloom. How lucky it feels to see this building every day and observe it with the changing seasons.

Swinging Saturday

Doesn’t everybody love swings, young and old alike? As long as I live, I’ll swing on the swings. My sisters will be sure to join.


A tall steel structure is perfect for swinging high. Pump those legs!

This swing set below is definitely an older model. Based on the size of it, it seems like it was always meant for young children.


Other than this swing set, I haven’t seen an apparatus with construction: the top bar and additional diagonals to the side crossbar. Have you?



homemade or manufactured? 


A close-up of the connection on this apparatus. Look closely and you can see remnants of the green paint.

Are you out swinging in the sunshine? See any old playgrounds? Send some photographs my way, please! More playground posts on PiP.
