Not much new here, in fact I realized yesterday as we went out to run errands that I hadn't been down the lane for almost a full week!  That's what feeling yucky will do to you, it will turn you into a hermit...but then again, being a hermit is sometimes a good thing.

But the whole not feeling well seems to have subsided, so now who knows where I will go...look out world, here I come, well at least the grocery store anyway! ;-)

Though I've stayed put this past week, I have been wandering around my yard, and I even made some yummy zucchini bread.  And the tomatoes are coming in fast and furious, so I shared some zucchini bread and some tomatoes with my neighbor.

Along with the wildlife and quiet nature of this place, another thing I love about my home are the neighbors.  Though we come together for parties and luncheons, we also have that lovely balance of leaving one another alone...well until we have too many tomatoes, or we need a cup of it's perfect!

The morning glories are finally blooming.  They've had so much rain this year that they haven't been as quick to bloom.  Morning glories flower best when they are stressed, such as during times of drought or high heat.  I don't mind that they haven't been as prolific this year, because their foliage is still one of my favorites and their leaves have cloaked our fence line in a truly beautiful way.

 And speaking of beautiful, the weather has taken a turn for the better and we have actually been sitting outside in the hammock and on our patio for the past few days.  It has been heavenly, and a welcome reprieve from the scorching hot days of the last several weeks.

I hope each of you are having a wonderful weekend.  I'm off to do a load of laundry...the down side of feeling better, but hey, I'll take it!  Enjoy your day!


  1. Sometimes being ill in summer has the benefit of enforcing a slow-down. I've been thinking a lot, lately, about the frenetic pace of life. Where have long and lazy summer days gone?...those days with enough time to smell the tomatoes before picking them from the vine?...enough time to read a book cover to cover or to lie on the lawn and watch dragonflies?

  2. Yuck, I hate laundry days :( You take it easy, and have a great weekend. We are headed out of town for a few days. Will chat more later next week!

  3. I like doing laundry. It's something that one can accomplish with a minimum of effort, that pretty much does itself until it's time to take it out of the dryer and fold and hang stuff.

    Now you make me wish I had planted tomatoes this spring. Maybe next year, she says knowing that she won't do it then either.

    Glad you're on the mend.

  4. I'm so glad you are feeling better...we appreciate the little things in life in that in between time of not actually felling 100% and then up and running. I'm feeling much better, too. Finally home and feeling that security...I love it!

  8. Feeling better after a week of not so . . . sounds like you are back on track. Love your beautiful photos. I too am intrigued by the intricate lines and shapes of the leaf. And enjoy a bouquet of the shades, designs and textures of green . . .
