August snuck in like a cat today.

                                                            "Oh dear."
This summer is moving along at rapid speed.
This is the time of year when the gardens are at their best and the little veggie plots are producing like mad. Even after such a wet season we are being fed well. 
We had some very cute pickers out here last weekend.
 Our grandittles Riley, Brad and little Tenley.
Brad came upon a zuc that obviously got away on me but boy was he proud of it.
He figured his find should win a prize.

These three munchkins belong to my son and his wife, Brittany.
Riley is our little nature lover. 
Soon after this photo was taken she grabbed my binoculars and headed off to see what birds were hanging about and find that silly Simon. :)
And maybe give St. Francis a fairy hat.

Here's a bit of a throw-back...
A photo taken thirty years ago of a mom teaching her son how to properly pet a timid little barn cat.
Now that boy and girl, my oldest and middle child and both married with children, have two beautiful cats of their own and love them dearly.

Have a wonderful day as you welcome in this glorious month. 

                     Someone is already on her morning nap.

hugs, Deb


  1. "Summertime...
    And the living is easy
    Fish are jumpin'
    And the cotton is high

    Oh, your daddy's rich
    And your mama's good lookin'
    So hush little baby now
    don't you cry...

    One of these mornin's
    You're gonna rise up singin'
    Then you'll spread your wings
    And take to the sky...

    But til that mornin'
    Ain't nothin' can harm you
    With your daddy
    And your mammy
    standin' by."
    - George Gershwin and Dubose Heyward, Porgy and Bess...!

    1. Yes, what fun to see precious little Simon coming to visit along with the grandittles! So precious! Looks like you had a fun productive day!

      Love the cherished image from when your babies were small - how beautiful!

      What a treasured day! Everyday is an adventure with little ones!!!

      Blessings to you and your dear family, Net

  2. I love the photos and the way life does goes round and round!

  3. Don't you hate it when the zucs get away? Argh! I'm tired of it already!

  4. Happy August, here in England it has a feeling of back endish; meaning that Autumn will be coming soon. Lovely, lovely photos today of your delightful grandchildren and of course yourself, you haven't changed at all, truly. Hope your new home goes on apace and looking forward to all the photos. Love Andie xxx

  5. Can't say I'm ready for the 'A' word, but it's here anyhow!

  6. I am surprised how quickly the season is moving along as well.
    A thought about trimming some scrub bushes in the back suddenly found them huge and fully leaved out!How does time go so fast?
    Maybe this is the time to sit back and enjoy the month of August with all the glorious sights and sounds.

  7. I can't believe it's already August! Summer will be over before we know it. I love your pictures of Simon and your grands! I bet the kids sure lived picking vegetables. That picture of Annie is precious! She is such a beautiful little lady!

  8. I see a lot of zucchini bread in your future!

    I know what you mean about August flying. I don't want summer to end -- seems like it just started. And that photo of you in the long ago -- a treasure!

  9. Annie looks beautiful when she's sleeping!
