I've Got My Eye On You.........





What a busy day I had!!!

Just taking a few minutes to post this...

No wonder they call it Miracle Gro!!!

This Violet was on its last legs about a month ago...

SO.... I gave him a Miracle Gro transfusion...and look at that!

Even his leaves are looking rather vibrant, eh??

Think his flowers will be purple with white ruffly edges....nice♥️

Will try and track his progress...

Ok...back to my busy day...

Picked Miss V up at 10:30...

Did the groceries with her...very helpful!! Even bought her 2 wee cute pumpkins...loves them!!

Then to Walmart for a few odds and ends...

Lunch....book reading...naptime...

While she was napping I made fried rice and a green pepper/mushroom/tomato sauce for some boneless chicken filets...

Snuck outside for a while to snap a few photos...

When she awoke...snack...Papa home...we all went for a lovely long walk...

With her "bike" of course...the sun actually came out!!!

I got some lovely photos with the sun out...no time to upload...another post!!

Back home...prepared the chicken which had been bathing in buttermilk...

Covered with Panko and Parmesan cheese...into the oven...

Bathtime....a real laugh...hair dried..."NEW" housecoat on..{more on that later}

Suppertime...didn't eat much...very fussy eater...

Now she is reading with Papa...while I came up here to do this...

Such a sweetie pie...but I am pooped...again!!

Hope you all had a great day...

Weather was so humid and damp...about an hour of sun...

It was nice while it lasted...

I managed to get one pic from today up here for you...

My Cabbage in my front planter...still dripping from the rain and humidity...


Enjoy your evening...

What's cookin' in your kitchen tonight??

            Cheers!

  1. You did have a busy day! We need sun, too! Maybe tomorrow. Those cabbages with the purple veins are beautiful!

    We had chicken minestrone...delish...and best of all, it was leftover from yesterday so it was a no cooking day for me!

  9. Busy, busy, busy ... but you wouldn't have it any other way. It's a bit cooler today, overcast. We are out on the hunt for some red dogwood branches for my winter greenery pots. Darned if we can remember where we saw lots of them last year :)

  14. I over-watered the Wandering Jew in my topless teapot and it was looking fairly well drunk. Thankfully I was able to pour much of the water out the teapot spout. I think it's going to make a full recovery. At least I hope so.

  17. Is that an African Violet, Linda? My Mum used to grow those in a large bottle and they looked great.
    Yours looks very healthy.
    Hope you are having a good time at the cottage and the weather is kind.
    Baby Peter had his first birthday party today ~ I am doing a post about it soon. . . . :)
