It Started Out Rainy


Yesterday was rainy and foggy  for most of the morning.

             So I took a few photos from my window .

Starlings all chatting up there . Boy can they be a noisy bunch .

But then it cleared and ended up a wonderful day sunny and quite warm … the temps hit a high of 23°C or 73°F it was wonderful . Miggs and I went for our walk  and just puttered , I do a lot of that these days lol.

When we came in for supper Papa was home from work and the girls were waiting for their supper . Miggs was playing with her teddy shaking him and  then decided to take a rest in her bed with him till her supper was ready .

Harley was interested in where Papa’s boots have been and all the different smells on them and probably in them lol .

After we all had supper Papa relaxed and I went out to take photos of the evening sky.

This morning it is foggy with the sun trying it’s best to shine through and it is almost there  . Looks like it will be another  beautiful day .

                                                                Happy October 1st !

                                                  Until next time  … have a snap happy day !

We had a gorgeous sunset here last night. The sky had a few clouds which always makes for great photos. It's a beautiful afternoon here again. I like your photo of the pink jet stream. Miggs looks so cute laying with her toy. Have a great afternoon.

Same weather her, but hardly any rain yesterday morning. It was glorious today and we are enjoying this weather while it lasts as we know it can change without any warning.
