is watching the signs of fall creep into my backyard... tired looking baskets of flowers and frantic squirrels "hiding" food for later... hello September!
is it realy fall? It's 81 degrees and not a colored leaf in sight...
is at another beginning and that's ok.
flip that thought!
We all start some place and build from there.
... sharing a chuckle.
... it's that time of year.
... make that TODAY!
Geez Phil... we haven't even had real winter yet...!?!
is celebrating Day 29 of my 21 day challenge (yup, you read that correctly!!)
Dear Mother Nature, Never thought I'd be sayin' this but a little snow is much preferred over rain... I mean it is February after all.
Dear Mother Nature, To clarify... I wasn't exactly hoping for the "Extreme Lake Effect Snow warning" currently in effect for my county...
got days of the high wind and a few inches of snow from Lake Erie!?! Lake Effect from Lake Ontario dumped 48" about 60 miles north of here. Somebody is doing a lot of shoveling!
stumbled over this chart somewhere recently... helping me to stay inside the circle!
is enjoying a couple of warm, sunny days to tackle early spring yard chores. My new daffodil bulbs are blooming !
we're drying out from last night's rain... but the weather looks promising for getting some weeding done this weekend!
... it is quite frankly cold but happy the sun is shining!
is hoping our weather has taken a turn... into "normal" temperature range.
is chuckling... we've jumped out of "normal" temperatures into a week of hot...
has been doing this... a lot
got out for a "heat wave" walk - a modest pace in the shade and caught a bit of the tiny breeze!!
wants to say...
and the heat and humidty goes on. We will be setting a record for the longest streak of daytime temps over 80 in a day or so. The forecast doesn't have the end in sight... so we sweat on.
after making two trips to the same grocery store... am enjoying the rest of the morning in the sunroom and one perfect red echinacea.
is wondering where August went...
just thinking we could use some hope...
Shared via CNN: "Everyone could use a little sunshine..." Wisconsin farmer, Scott Thompson, planted over 2 million of them...!
is starting the day with gratitude...
Reminder to self..... be a decent person.
is working on that positive attitude
Happy Fall Equinox... it's peffect walking weather today!
is getting my steps in while enjoying one of the last summer-like days this year! Bonus: it's a push mower lol
it's been said before... but it's worth saying again
is It's here... enjoy! Hoping to time our walk for when the sun is out but it's playing hard to get with the clouds!
after thoroughly enjoying an unexpected beautiful "bonus" day yesterday - am slacking off today 30 degrees cooler and drizzly... oh well.
a little nudge for all of us (including me!)
is trying a "healthier" pumpkin muffin recipe...
yup, another one! November is one of the cloudiest months in a pretty cloudy region (which is why I am so happy & thankful!!!)
it's a record-setting, get out and soak up some natural Vit D, long walk and de-stress then clean out the garage day.
is coping... the "normal" November weather has arrived... gloomy and cooler.
is making my own sunshine... our thermometer has ventured into the 20s and there it sits (at least for today)
even though our family will be celebrating Thanksgiving in three small groups separated by miles... I am blessed and grateful.
... either way a wet week ahead. Up at sunrise (7 a.m. lol... to walk and stay dry!)
is determined to get in the holiday spirit!
is trying to stop fighing reality.
is adopting a calm mantra
is calm and has a supply of soap...
has two in my lap (they're exhausted from their morning with the groomer) so I'm just going to sit.
is going to be out walking before & after a blood draw (for vaccine research)... enjoying a Spring-like day!
have a joyful week!
