This Week's Ramblings #13

Its been a rather cool week mixed with rain and fog in the mornings.  We've even turned on the furnace in the evenings just to take the chill out since it's been dropping into the 40's at night.

The season is mixed here- fall is only days away by the calendar but you can already sense it around you.  The fog was burning off the other morning and I caught the sun's rays of light beaming through the trees.

On Monday I posted about this basket I loaded up with some spa accessories.  I posted about it "here"

Over the weekend we went to the Farmer's Market and I found some goodies which I posted about "here" I froze up green beans that I got at the market.  

I noticed how the water was still beaded up on the ornamental kale and thought it made for a good picture.  It didn't seem to mind all the rain we'd been getting.  

I spotted this blue and purple flower on my hydrangeas- I was tickled to see this since most of the flowers on the Endless Summer hydrangeas stay pink here.  

I've been watching this week's PBS presentation about the Roosevelt's.  It's been interesting to learn about Theodore, Eleanor and Franklin and the era of time they lived through.  

Teddy Roosevelt was quite the dynamo.  He didn't sit still long and neither does my Teddy except when he sleeps- which he does very well!  Little Teddy is like a toddler right now who's discovering his world. He's quite the busy body and keeps me company everywhere I go- literally... the bathroom, laundry room, closet etc!  

It's taken a month but he and our other cat Carmen are now friends.  

Looking forward to the next few days as we warm up again to the 70's!  I rearranged the living room and decorated the mantel for fall.  I'll get some pictures up next week!
Cheers to a good weekend for everyone!


  1. You take such great pictures of your garden and surroundings, Liz. It has been very cold here nights-low 40's couple of high 30's. Today was gorgeous-but SweetCheeks said it was going to rain tonight. Where did she hear that? She said---well...on the NEWS, of course, Nana! What 7 year old watches the news anyway? lol

    Hope you have a great weekend. I have two monkeys here tonight and one more coming on Sunday. Guess I won't be getting much done. xo Diana

  2. Where does the time go? You have had a busy week and it shows with your posting. Teddy is adorable and i am so glad he and Carmen are getting along.

  3. oh my! your flowers are absolutely gorgeous!!

  4. Oh I wanted to watch the Roosevelt series. Hopefully it will be on again. Your little Teddy is just darling and the ornamental kale is gorgeous.

    Have a beautiful weekend.

  5. That first picture if fantastic, Liz! I love how that looks. Calendar worthy! : ) Such a beautiful view out your back door. I do miss having even a little bit of back yard since we moved (three years ago now).
