I found two mugs to add to my cluttered country cottage china cupboard.
Only $5.00 each.
You might notice the produce plate is a little less full right now.
I delivered a basket of garden goodies to a neighbour this week as she was so kind to give me a basket full of spring bulbs in April.
I tried today to pick away at the garden but the mosquitoes
I have to tell you, if I had known what this summer was going to be like with all the rain and those nasty, pesky bugs I would have never bothered with a vegetable garden. They have taken all the fun out of having one.
I pick for two minutes and then have to come inside.
Only if I plop a net hat on my head can I last and they are miserably hot to wear.
It's been a bad summer.
But look what does love the rain/sun/rain/sun days.

We found another piece of what must have been part of a machine of some sort used by my ancestors to work this land many years ago.

I hung it on the old OH next to Riley's shoe ( my grandmother's work horse many years ago).
Now when I walk by, just seeing it there makes me wonder what it was like here when the land was being worked and the old clap-board house was being built.
Just what did that old piece of metal belong to.
Oh, if only for one moment I could go back in time.

He and I had a lot to talk about

The air is changing and Fall is not far off.
But, that's ok. Autumn is my favorite season and the fifty or so maple trees that surround the mouse-house will be showing off their multitude of colours.
They are a spectacular sight to see.
we have a week of sun ahead and I am thankful for that.
And so is this beautiful sun-puddle worshipper extraordinaire.
Hope you are enjoying August.
