After A Brief Rain fall


          Summer 2013 (6 of 20)

                 I love how the rain drops sparkle in the morning sunshine off of the flowers !

                 Something  so plain  like this leaf ,  looks so much nicer with rain drops still on it !

I just love the sunflowers we didn’t plant in our back garden . Mr Bee seems to like them to especially after a rain, he gets the best of both worlds here , water , nectar and sunshine all at the same time .

The weather this morning is cool and a bit dewy . Papa is already in his shop putting the finishing touches on the cabinet he made for a coworkers daughter . The reveal of that will be soon .

        Miggs would like to thank all who sent B-day wishes on yesterday’s post to her and sends a big slurp to all !

Today we are just puttering , I am  doing laundry and preparing supper  marinating the steaks for  the BBQ . We have fresh corn on the cob to have with it and potatoes we got from another co-worker of Papa’s from their family farm !  Papa brought home from them a big batch of fresh corn on the cob , beefsteak tomatoes and huge green peppers to . Nothing like local  farm fresh veggies !

Tomorrow Papa , Miggs and I are off to our horse club for another day of snap happy fun . This time horse and or rider will be dressed up for the events . 

                                               Until next time  ….. Hope you all have a good day !

Gorgeous day here. I'm trying out a new red cabbage recipe, doing laundry, cleaning the compost bucket and a few more around the house jobs. Quite cool overnight, lowest temperature showing on our little weather station was 6 Celsius. No rain for us but lots of dew overnight. Enjoy the weekend.

Nice day today here too. This morning I gave the car a thorough cleaning ,vac and polish. After lunch hubby shouted 'bye' and disappeared.
He'd gone to buy wood...where did he put it??? The back of the car is no longer clean!!!

Marigolds in the rain...I do love that vibrant orange colors.

Have a great dinner, it sure sounds delish.

Elaine, our Saturday night dinner was also steak on the grill, which is something we don't have very often as chicken, fish and other stuff is more often on our dinner table. I made my own steak marinade which was easy and quite tasty, so let me know by email if you want me to send the recipe. Have fun shooting at the horse club events; we are off to an area zoo today for some of the same shooting fun but with different animals.

Linda said...

I didn't plant any marigolds this year...darn!
Next year...for sure!
Great photos, Elaine...
