A Quiet Weekend With A Sickie

 

Yup we had a quiet weekend , didn’t  get the out side stuff done we wanted to as it rained all day Saturday and yesterday was cloudy and cold , speaking of cold, Papa has been down and out this weekend with a bad head cold and has been resting , he never gets sick but it got him this time  he woke this morning still feeling YUK !   no going to work today for you Mr , call in and take another day of rest , chicken soup and sleep , so he did .

I have been puttering about . Took a few photos , went for a walk with Miggs when the weather cleared for a bit , nothing to exciting  .

One lonely mini sunflower left around the big tree . We had a few but they have gone now ,  I think they are from the small oiled sunflower seeds I feed my birdies all though it is the first time they have ever grown and bloomed  .

We saw the sun yesterday just a few moments  before it set , as I was doing the dishes from supper and I saw the sun set shining on the trees in the valley in the east . I can see the leaves on these trees just starting to change ever so slightly .

Then I went out and caught what was left of the sun set shining in the clouds in the west just before it sank into the western horizon .

Today the sun has come up the ground is dewy as the temps dropped to 8C or 46F  I had to turn the furnace on this morning to get the chill out but the day time temps are to be nice with the sun still shining and highs of 23C or 73F so that's a plus . Well of to check on  the sickie lol Papa before I go for my walk with Miggs and get my day on the go .

                                                                                   Until next time

Some lovely photos from your day of rest. Things are really beautiful after a rain, like they have sighed in relief from the sun. Hope Papa gets to feeling better.

Good Morning, We have sunshine and a nice 66 degrees this morning. How I love the cooler weather. I have enjoyed catching up with you. It is not fun when you have one sick. I have been fighting a bad sinus infection and got put on strong meds. I always enjoy seeing your pictures. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley

Beautiful photos as always Elaine! I'm missing the sun and heat back home in NB this week. ;( It's only 6 here today and rainy. Brr.

The moth shot really stands out! I wonder if the goldfinches are getting ready to migrate by eating like that.

I hope he's on the mend by now. Enjoy the return to warm but not outrageously hot.

Hope that Papa is feeling better soon and that he doesn't share with you, Elaine. Nice sunset shots and the trees will be turning soon enough. We also have cooler temps after a very hot previous week.
