John arrived at the gym, so we headed on out for breakfast! It was pretty warm already, I have to say. Today is more humid than the last couple of days.
Sunflower bagel and coffee!! I how I missed the bagel. This was an awesome bagel today. I was pretty hungry.
It was nice to relax and eat, since I don’t have a set work time for my 1/2 day today. 13 mile ride this morning. Trying to figure out if we will be able to bike tomorrow or if Earl will send too much wind our way. Supposed to be windy with rain possible tomorrow….
The garden had a couple surprised in it for me today. It still is looking quite good for this time of year. A little tired in spots, but still weeks of color left! As requested, here is an outside shot of the house.
Victorian style. Note the front yard? This is the only yard we have. Not kidding. There is no back yard (it is totally covered by our shop) and no real side yards (just strips). Makes for easy mowing, though 😀
Impatiens with a weed sticking in there.
Butterfly bush is going like crazy:
This bloom was at nose level:
My multi-blue clematis has a bloom on it. I saw this while watering today and was so pleased! I thought it was done.
This is a volunteer. Actually, I cut it down earlier in the summer and 4 came up in its place. Kind of like the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. I am leaving these up for a bit and checking for monarch eggs, since that one has been hanging around.
Lunch time! I did find the heel of the bread left, so I made a PBJ sammie. Yum.
After a little more work, I decided to go out and have a little fun. Am I the only one that enjoys shopping here?
I practically lived here when I did my flip houses. Checking out curtains and paint swatches. I have the renovation itch again (as does John). Too bad I don’t have money LOL!
Since it is so close, I had to stop for a snack. I really looked hard at the pumpkin scones. Really hard, but I just couldn’t justify getting one. So I got a pumpkin muffin instead.
I don’t know if that was really a wiser choice LOL. It was pretty tasty and seemed fatty. I just love pumpkin anything.
Speaking up pumpkins – now it seems like fall!
I cannot believe that I bought another rose bush! They were on sale for $6 each, so I could not pass one up. It met all my criteria for roses: Easy care, hardy, reblooming, fragrant, and not a tea rose. I just need to find somewhere to put it. Side of the house is going to get a makeover, I think!
Dinner time included a baked crab cake and some baked fries (OreIda)!
Hot sauce was sprinkled liberally.
Need to do a little more work tonight and some chillaxin’ – like this:
Any fun plans on tap?
