 This is the first Saturday night, that we have been at over 5 months...maybe 6....

There was a big storm out at the cottage last night, and we awoke to no power...

That would not be enough to send us home....the biggee was .....our septic is acting up....gurgling to be exact....

After the Mr had an evening we were really sweaty from working the gardens...the toilet bubbled up!!!


In 15 years at the Lake, we have never had a shower for 
MOI...I did a rinse down....tried calling a few septic people, but of course no one was answering on Friday night.... SO off to bed we went...listened to the wind and rain throughout the night.....and  then there was no power....sooooo

Here we are at home....and it looks like it is going to rain any minute..

Captured these shots of my Ligularia, on Thursday...after I chopped down the mildewey Golden Glows...they were hiding behind... what a lovely surprise...



  Hope you all have a lovely evening...

           we are just about to eat....grilled pork tenderloin

                            mashed potatoes with chives

                                  sauteed peppers,mushroom and onions

                                             Greek Salad...

                        Cheers!   :o)
