While so many are awaiting the hurricane, here in the middle of the country we are having beautiful weather — sunny, 80+ degrees and breezy. If you live in the path of the hurricane, please be safe and let us all know in the comments what it’s like where you are.
Here’s another bee photo from Connie – look at all that pollen on the legs! Wow!
I was at Connie’s yesterday visiting Betty
who needed a tummy rub – so sweet! I also snapped these photos of the gardens.
It’s just beautiful any direction you look.
I’m sitting in the screened porch watching the hummingbirds at the feeder – too fast and too small for the camera.
Remember this guy, Owen?
Here he is a couple months ago with Mom and Ivy.
And he turned two in August and I gave him a toy Black and Decker jackhammer and yes, it makes lots of noise and he loves it!
I got a text message a few mornings ago from his mom wondering if I’d like a “side” of jackhammer with my coffee! We laughed and laughed! She’s a good mommy for leaving the batteries in – he likes to jackhammer Ivy’s water bowl, too. How could you resist that face?
And this is what met me in my sewing room this morning —-
Looks like some cat had frog legs for breakfast that didn’t agree with them! It’s always something.
And this will make you smile. Here is the picture I recently bought at the thrift store that I assumed was German.
and then I saw what I thought was an identical picture at the antique mall last weekend and a reader corrected me and said it was Danish lettering.
Well I’ll be darned – they are not the same! Fooled me until I looked carefully. Were you fooled, too? If you thought your German wasn’t too good when I showed the latter, it was for good reason – it’s Danish! Hahaha!
Last night I tried to subscribe to a blog I knew I’d enjoy but I had to set up an account with a password which I then tried to do. I got a message that I already had an account with a different email! I could not figure it out and had to give up. I love our blog because YOU comment and I feel like we’re all friends across the country. From now on would you tell us in the comments where you live? And would you tell us about what’s happening in your life when you write. It doesn’t have to be detailed or long but I really enjoy hearing from you. I’m going to find out if you can post photos.
And here’s what Hazel is up to or down to as the case may be – digging a really deep hole by the tree!
Reed and I started picking the pumpkins yesterday.
And here he is with his favorite pumpkin!
I’d better publish this long post before it crashes!
