Thru The Kitchen Window.....





I have not been feeling up to par the last few days...

I think this roller-coaster weather is starting to get to me...

Is it hot and humid???

Is it cloudy and rainy???

Is it crispy and cool???

Anyhoo...

I pulled myself up by my bootstraps...

Got into my gym clothes...

Dragged my sorry arse over to Fitness...

Had a great time!!

Saw all the girls!!!

Went out for coffee afterwards...

I forgot how much fun I actually have...

And what wonderful gym Ladies they are♥️ 








After the coffee and chit chat...

I headed down to pick up Miss V...

While we were having lunch...

I took a few pictures thru the kitchen window...

It is a beautiful day out there...

And...now that there is a nap going on...

I am heading outside...

With my camera...

To do some light yard work... 

I am crippled from fitness!!!

Devon...{friend and instructor} really put us thru our paces this am...and I feel it!





The Rose of Sharon that grows right outside the kitchen window,is putting on a grand display right now...

As are my Porcupine Grasses, and of course the Limelight Hydrangea...

Just have to look out my window to see beautiful things...

How lucky am I?

 

Stopped by the Greenhouse on my way home...

Picked up 3 Fountain Grasses...a cabbage,a mum and a few odd begonias...

Gonna perk up the old front to greet the newest Season...

Have you bought anything for Fall decorating yet???

Am I too early???

                                                       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope you all had a great weekend...and a great start to the week...

Think we'll have banquet burgers..{minus the bacon!} and Greek Salad for dinner...

Rain...supposedly...on its way tonight and tomorrow...good for the garden!! 


       Enjoy the rest of this glorious day...

                            Cheers!  :o)

Random Moments From The Week......

Today will be a some pictures from the last week...

Starting at the cottage last Thursday...

A rather cloudy day...storms across the Lake, south of us...New York State...Dunkirk




My planter box on the shed (shunda) is doing very well this year...

Doesn't get a lot of sun here...or rain either...the Nasturtiums are popping!!



I kept hearing a small Chickadee family...

Finally spotted them on one of the bird baths...

Parents and 3 chicks...so adorable...this was the only good shot I got...

They were bathing and drinking...hopping around...very cute!

Hope they are still around this weekend♥️


This dragonfly was waiting for us on the beach deck...

Apparently he did not continue the journey with his buddies...

He looked spectacular against the blue deck, and even more handsome on the green table...

Sad that he didn't make it...ahhhh Nature!




I lost this silver hoop earring in April, while doing some gardening...

Luckily I kept the mate, as my boyfriend spied it in the garden...

And presented it to me!♥️

This was the 2nd time I had lost it, and he found it!

Thanks Boyfriend!




Our Friday night Fire pit...

Lovely and calm...Full moon...fabulous!



A few Critters I encountered...

I have never seen a squirrel with such a red tail....How about you??

He ws also kind of tame...didn't run away when approached...

Hope he stays OUT of the cottage!

The other Critter ws floating around in the pool!  Looks like he jumped on for dear life!!

Suddenly he jumped off....swam for "shore"...sadly...succumbed to the skimmer...

No...there was no way to save him...it all happened so quickly...





Sunday brought My daughter out to pick up Miss V...

The pool was all toasty, and Miss ve had a ball playing in the steps!








Noticed the my Ivy was turning red...

A wee bit early??

 


Another critter...probably looking for the wee mouse!
 

A piece of my delicious banana,lemon,raspberry loaf...

Very moist and delicious!

Hope you are all having a great day...

Still cool and breezy here...

All packed...

Off to the Cottage...

See 'ya!


                         Cheers!  :o)
