Zoomed

Oh my the month of August has zoomed by.   It was a busy time here.

While I was bird watching the garden grew wild and tangled.  It definitely could use a bit of pruning.









Those peaches that I thought would all be gone because  the resident groundhog was stealing them...well he left me plenty...the last of them ended up in these peach crumb muffins.









 The neighbor's generous gift of zucchini made its way into pickles.
Some sketching and plein air painting
was done.
Pastel painting and Watercolor sketch



So much for those "lazy days of summer".  Maybe if I hurry I can find them.












Looks like maybe these two did.

Enjoy what is left of August before it zooms by.   See you in September.

Hugs Debbie

  9. Really like your photos. Painting is delightful and I really love your dogs. If it wasn't so blazing hot here in Texas I would get a German Shepherd.

    1. Dear Sharon - thanks for visiting . Schindler - my male shepherd's father was from Texas originally...so I think they would adapt. Of course mine are constant companions indoors and outside. They are a wonderful breed.

  16. You ´ re so right , August just flew by even if the weather was hot, damp and sticky. A hard time for old age people. I’m glad you’ve get your habits of baking and jamming! ☺️Lovely painting by the way! Take care

  17. Wait, you mean August is gone?!?! Yeah, it went by that fast. Which is OK by me, because that means we're one month closer to fall! Looks like you had a delightfully full month--lots of simple pleasures and everyday adventures!
