So long, August

There's no hiding from it...
(look closely)
Fall is comin'
Sierra doesn't mind. She found it rather hot sitting on the porch this summer anyway.
And now, with constant companionship, she will sit and wait for the mailman and enjoy the Autumn breeze.
It's time to slow down and say 'so long' to August.  Although our August was very wet, we still had many beautiful, warm days and it will be hard to see it go. I took a walk to show you some of the signs of the fast approaching Fall in our little town.

Just me and the camera; no dog. Kane, at 14, is much too slow now on his walks and when we do walk together, it is all about him. He still enjoys his sniffing and rootin' around and I am so thankful for that.

I put together a big casserole of macaroni and cheese for dinner tonight. I was able to use up some of the beautiful tomatoes that my clients have been kindly leaving me at their homes when I arrive to care for their kitties.  I was very happy to accept their generous offer since my sad little plant gave me only 2 tomatoes this year.

I have a busy weekend of cat-sitting as many families are travelling on the last weekend of summer.
Next week, drop by for a look-see at all the gorgeous cats in my care.

Happy weekend!


  1. Oh the signs are there aren't they! Fall leaves are so pretty and so I'm ready for some anytime now. Hugs!

  2. Autumn can come any time now. I'm really tired of the heat! I'm jealous you are getting home grown tomatoes...

  3. Here in Holland we had a wet August but stil a lot of beautifull days also. And now September is coming and i looking forward to it .Beautiful authum colors ,candless in the house ,i just love it .Sierra is a very sweet kitty and i'm sure you keep an eye on her when she is outside.I just want to say i love youre blogs all the time

  4. Home grown tomatoes! Is there anything from the garden more wonderful? I'm so jealous!
    We're happy Sierra can wait for her beloved post man ( and even happier
    that she has someone with her).

  5. In South Africa we had a dry and COLD August. Back in East Africa, our wet season and spring is about to start. Love the photo of Sierra. You do so much good by caring for all the cats, Deb. Blessings and purrs. Jo

  6. Have a nice weekend with your furry mates. Your rain arrived here and I'm loving temps in the low 90s! ox

  7. Beautiful colours of fall. Its a nice time of year I think. After the heat and before the cold and so colourful

  8. Sierra's beautiful in the sun!

    It's that time of year when it might be warm in the mid day, but you feel the chill in the evenings.

  9. I see kitty hiding behind the leaves on the step! Oh, the sunshine and touches of fall are lovely. I love this time of year.
    Wishing you a very nice week.
    I'm on an extended break due to John's diabetes but I'm enjoying my visits with you.

  10. Signs of fall are barely showing here. But fall can't come too soon for me!

  11. Your cat pictures are amazing. It surely is looking like fall where you are.

  12. You and I are on the same August wavelength. That mac and cheese sounds fabulous!
