Hour By Hour..........

1pm friday...cushions out...ready...very cloudy...

Heading down to the beach...stopped to admire the impatience and begonias...

zoomed in on a family of Geese....floating by...you can see them in the next picture...to the left..

Seaweed {which we never get}...washed ashore where the waves must have been pounding in the big rain/wind storm last week...

Inukshuk Village devastated...all was lost...no surviviors...*sigh*...start again!

1:30 pm....flipflops still intact...chilly...but hopeful!


2:30...food all put away...clean laundry all put away...table set...boyfriend cut the grass...I fed the birds...seems to be brightening???

2:45....

3:00pm....ok...flipflops off...chilly...sweatshirt...shoes...*sigh*...come on!

3:18....YEAH!!!...I knew you wouldn't let us down!!!

Skies clearing...can you see that big blue face there??? Perhaps it is The Blue Grumpster!!! hahaha!



3:30...OK...this is more like it!!! Bring me a beer...I'm on vacation...again!

Happy face...squinting in the sun!!

Freighter...coming from the Welland Canal....heading to the Erie Canal...we watch them all day long!

5:30...getting chilly...time to head up to the sunporch...

Ahhh...there it is...and the sun will be there soon!!

6pm...lovely sunset...heading back to the sunporch...dinner in the oven...




7pm...

Here is where we ended up...

Lovely and toasty in here...

And...

I got to dance with my boyfriend...again!

Saturday was a whole new ball game...

tune in for the next chapter...

Hope you are all having a great day...

Cloudy and damp here...

Expecting more rain...










      What did you all do this weekend.....anything exciting....I NEED to KNOW...hahaha!

                 Gonna make some buttermilk soaked chicken fingers...

                      Simply amazing how plump it makes the chicken...and fish too!!

                       Fresh corn on the cob.....Greek salad....YUM!


                                          Enjoy your evening....

                                                       Cheers!  :o)

  3. That's quite the zoom you have on your lens. Gorgeous photos. Ahh...a fireplace. I miss ours while the renovations continue. Why are they taking so long you ask? Stuff on back-order. Gawd!! Anyway, it is cool here today, no sun. Tomorrow will be the same. Have a nice evening, Linda. Loved your shoes, btw. =^..^=

  4. Nice to see your day picture by picture. We watched the grandkids at their swimming lessons on Sunday morning, then went for breakfast. Today has been a lovely sunny day, chilly to start but warmed a bit as the day went on. Got the grass cut, some plants trimmed and now all is put away as the rain is moving in. It's almost time for tea and Coronation Street.

  6. I enjoyed your hourly captures of the weather. The sky changes fast doesn't it? Well, sometimes it does. It cleared off here about 5:00 just in time for it to cool down and get dark (almost). A risk of frost tonight. Saturday we didn't do much. Had the kids over for supper spur of the moment like. Fun. Sunday, church and a walk in the park in the afternoon. Nearly froze!! It might be 20 tomorrow then back down to the mid-teens again but sunny. I miss summer!!

  8. Nice to catch up with your weekend. I like the way you use your flip flops as a weather measurement tool. Either that, or you're beginning to have a foot fetish....LOL Love your beautiful, lovely photos. Great variety, as always. Have a good week! :)

  9. Hi Linda. I think I am now caught up with your posts. I have not had my computer for a few days. Love your sky pics. I took a lot of those this weekend too. It amazes me how cool it has already become there! We are so hot here! Ghastly!
    All of your photos are so great, but that last one, with the fire blazing, really look cozy! Is the fire your only course for heat at the cottage? I suspect your season is quickly coming to an end for the cottage weekends away then. Boo hoo.
    Miss ya,
    Kris

  12. I keep checking the calendar to make sure it's September not October.
    We dropped Ralphy at the adoption centre on Saturday. He clung to me like a limpet, I cried.

  15. Is it just me or is the typing getting smaller and smaller... seems to change when I make a comment. And now there is word verification AND number verification. Yikes.
