Welcoming Miss September....




This past weekend brought many different things...
Will tell you all....in due time....
This was something I wanted to share....
This old birdbath at the cottage, has hosted many many bath times!
I am writing this from my IPad...so excuse the odd layout....






Captured this guy thru the window on Sunday morning.....
Just after this.....Mum and baby Grackle came in for a dip....
Very busy indeed!





The big finale!
How cute is that!
All clean...
All ready....
Bring it on!
Welcome Miss September...
Please be kind....more sun....more warmth....more summer♥️


Hope you are all having a great long weekend....
Kooky weather again!
Cloudy and humid today at home, we returned late yesterday afternoon....
The rumblings of thunder at the cottage were pretty scary.....and VERY high winds...

Enjoy your day...

            Cheers!

Toe Toes...New Slips....Humpty Dumpty...Oooooo Scary...







We had the privilege of having our Miss V for a couple of days this week...

Her Auntie Lissa came to visit, and as she saw we were both wearing our flip-flops...( a family curse!)...she decided it was time to try her own on!

She calls them her "toe toes"...so cute!

She got one on...

With the help of Auntie Lissa...

But couldn't navigate with them...

So back to the drawing board!!






Watching Bubble Guppies...sends her into a trance...

A nice quiet trance! hahaha!

Got her some new slippers...

Pretty snappy...and very toasty!






I picked up this wee Humpty Dumpty wind up at the thrift shop for 25 cents!


Hours of fun!










She got another haircut!

So cute....love it short...but also loved her pigtails!



















Here she is playing "spooky"...

Under the blanket!

Where"s Miss V???
Hope you are all having a great day...

Wee bit cooler today...and breezy...but plenty of sun!

We are off to the cottage...for another long weekend...YAY!!!

Hope you all have a great time...see some friends and family...eat...drink and be merry!

See you all next week...

                      Cheers!  :o)

Seagull....Seadoo....Sunset...*sigh*





Friday afternoon was so beeeeutiful...

When the sun had left the beach deck...

My boyfriend took 2 old lounge chairs...

Cleaned them up...

Added 2 cushions and 2 footstools...

And down we went...

To the shore...

Calm as can be...

Lots of sunshine...

A few glasses of cheer...

My trusty camera...

And enjoyed the water sights...

I hope this weather continues well into Fall...

What a perfectly perfect 3 1/2 day weekend....














Was I right or what???

A perfect ending to a perfect day...

And there is still Saturday to come!!

And a few flower shots...

Of course!

So Glad We Went On Thursday...












Hope you all had a great weekend...

Our weather was spectacular...

Gentle breezes...calm Lake...swimming...eating...drinking!!

Taking in all the Lake has to offer

And...I am so glad we went on Thursday...or...

We would have missed this beauty!!

For some reason my Daturas are kinda pitiful this year...so...when I spied this one...

I had to follow her progress for the evening...

If we had not gone until Friday...

She would have been gone...amazing!!

                                 **********************************************

We are having a sleepover tonight with Miss V...

She is napping right now...and then...we will hit the pool!!

My daughter Lissa and her husband Jeff are coming over...

I picked up 2 rotisserie chickens at Costco...delicious...and Gluten-free!!

I have fresh yellow beans...small fresh carrots and a few new potatoes to prepare...

Of course a Greek salad....my speciality!


Enjoy the rest of your day....

We are hot and humid again....fannnnntastic!!
