Terrific Thursday At The Lake....

Let me start by saying...
Our hearts go out to all the families in Connecticut...
I can't even imagine what it would be like to lose a child...
Especially this way ...
I hope everyone can heal from this horrible tragedy...



 The weather has been so awesome so far...that we get to go to the Cottage at least once a week...

There was a South-West wind, that made it a feel a wee bit chilly...

But the abundance of sunshine made up for that...

We inspected the grounds...

And...

All was well...:o)
 That crazy stone is STILL in place...

It is so funny...everytime we go, now....

I head right down there to see if it is gone...

I will be tracking that all winter...

For your viewing pleasure...of course!!!  :o) 









Above is a tiny green pepper, that must have started to grow...

And obviously got hit with some cold air!!! 

Some of my birdhouses are ready for next spring...and some new tenants..

Usually the Chick-a-dees move in to these...I have been unable to get any photos...

BUt.....there is always next year!!! 
 These tiny succulents had already put out their Fall colours...

Turning burgundy...

And now...they are producing fresh green growth....amazing...





 Sea Oats still looking great...I love the way they sway in the breeze..





 This feather was standing up straight in the stones on the beach...

Kind of a chocolate brown color...

I wonder who lost it??




Found this shell...full of water...a stone and a bit of leaf..

 


 Another shell..up higher...almost looks like a large snail shell..




Of course...the awesome milkweed still putting on a display...

As we were sitting on our bench...we watched the tiny seeds blowing in the wind...

Wonder where they will sprout next spring??


Perhaps this will be the last of the Mums...but who knows???


The sun was flooding into the living room...It wasn't as cold inside this time...and we STILL have the water on!!!  Sooooooo...maybe New Years Eve this year!!!!




As we were locking up...

I grabbed this snowman that I had taken out there a few years ago...

I hung him on the nail where our mirror hangs on the kitchen porch...

I thought...

How festive is that??? 




Hope you are all having a great day...

Kind of a sleepy one around here...

I was "making rather merry " last night..

Had a wonderful time...

Great to catch up with old friends...

Dinner went smoothly...and was inhaled by all...

Tonights menu is grilled lamb rib chops and wild rice...

Keeping it easy and simple....


Enjoy the rest of your weekend....

                                 Cheers!   :o)

  2. You got some really nice photos at the cottage Linda. Can't wait to see if the little rock will stay put all winter. I expect the ice may move it at some point but it'll be fun to see it's progress. That's amazing that the succulent is growing this late. It's going down to -18 here tonight. Brrrrrr.

  7. As always I love the water photos, and I'm pleased the little rock is still there. The cute little snowman looks like he needs some company. He'll be waiting for you when you go back to visit the cottage.
    Some ice rain coming down right now but that is to change over to just plain old rain later this morning.
