me in the afternoon sun on the beach...

A few passing rain clouds...no rain for us!

Tiger Lilies last hurrah..

                                                        ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••




      Hope you all had a great day....

               I went to Fitness...

    And then spent 1 1/2 hours in the backyard...

     Deadheading...trimming...tidying things up...

              You know...the usual things...

     Oh yes...and watered...as we have not had any     rain!

       At least it is less humid today...

         With a brisk breeze...

            Crazy weather!!

         Gonna go out for dinner tonight...

           Happy about that!

                              Enjoy your evening...


                     Cheers! :o)

  3. Loved the yellow Begonias and Tiger Lilies in particular.
    I see I am just # 3 tonight . . . . . lol
    Congratulations on restricting yourself to just 2 pairs of flip flops.
    I see the two chairs on the beach you were talking about last night.
    Just seen the circumference of Lake Erie is 871 miles and the length of Britain is 874 miles.

    1. Hi Eddie...
      I told you....I have 356 pairs! Plenty to choose from! Hahaha!
      Yes....the chairs were still there....we went down this night as well, but didn't want to repeat myself!
      Enjoy your evening.....

    2. Amazing 356 pairs of flip flops and just 9 more
      Would be a pair a day for a year, that's for sure.
      Tell me where on earth do you store them all ?
      And it must take you ages to select
      The flop flops to wear for the right effect . . . . . lol

  4. Hello my friend. I am catching up! Look like it was indeed, a lovely weekend. Tell me, do you take your flower baskets in under cover when you leave, or just leave them out on the deck? Also...do you ride the Sea Do too? And how is the water? Cold? Clear? Weeds? Pebble bottom, or sand?
    Your dinner sounds perfect for a hot day. I don't cook on Wednesdays as hubby plays on a mens softball team, and never eats on those nights. Weird, isn't it? So I get the night off, and intend to try to get some yard work done when it is close to sundown. Too darn hot! Just awful!

  5. No rain here, but the cooling breeze moved in later this afternoon, right when we were having a tea party in the gazebo ... the grandkids were here all day so we did lots of fun things. It's back to school next week for them so all the extra days we've had them this summer has now come to an end. I need to water some plants tonight too.

  6. Your rain has been visiting with us!!! Do you want it back? I can always try and get it to come back and see you if you want!!! Your tiger lilies are lovely, I think that I remember you saying last year that they didn't flower so well, so it is good to see them blooming again. xx

  9. I just love looking at that water....it makes me feel more relaxed just looking at the pictures, so I can only imagine what it does for you to spend hours doing that in real life!
    We were so humid today, you could have cut the air with a knife. I hope it blows away soon!

    1. Oh Betsy...it is even more fantastic in real life...
      The best part is....we have breakfast on the deck.....work around all day....usually have lunch down there....more odd jobs....crossword and reading......shower at 3.....then into slo-mo for the remainder...of course I make dinner in there too! Hahaha! Overall.....a very satisfying experience!

  10. I live much too close to the lake and too far away at the same time.
    It's always there waiting, and I'm always headed somewhere else.
    Might be different if it was lapping directly at my backyard.
    It's still a treasure and I still love it being there.
    Hope you get some sunshine tomorrow. When you're done with it send it on this direction.

    1. I know what you mean Martha....we are about a 10 minute drive to Lake Ontario....and we don't often go there! We do try and take Miss V down....but....tons of goose poopies!
      Her mom takes her yo the beach in Burlington to see the ducks!

    2. We are "almost" literally a stone's throw from Lake Ontario. Sometime we go there to do just that, throw stones, into the water of course.

      I found my husband's pie loving cousin lives in Niagara Falls now... I wonder if we could make it up there again some day....

    3. I did not know you were that close!
      You must enjoy the weather, being that close!
      You should go to Niagara Falls....lovely!
