This & That & That & This

 

Well the weather has been wonderful , warm sunny days cool nights and mornings . I have been busy cleaning both inside and out , gardens are about 75% done , still some colour happening with my Marigolds  and I will be bringing in the Geraniums soon  who are also still  in full bloom.

Sad to say the hummers have now gone , I took all the nectar feeders down cleaned them up and put away for next year .

        Chippy and the squirrels are busy collecting and hiding food for the next season UGH ! winter .

Miggs and I have also been taking short walks this week as we both seem to of done something to our knees, I probably twisted mine in the garden or stepped wrong ,yeah know the kind of OUCH ! that shows up a day or so after and just lingers  lol !  Miggs had a knee operation a few years ago as some of you who have been with us here for a long time may remember my posts about her recovery  and has been doing so well since  that you would never  of known she had her knee reconstructed  but she seems to of pulled or hurt the same leg and is resting for a day or two, it is soo hard to keep an active dog still I tell ya , she can walk on it just not run , she bunny hops instead on her good legs so  if her leg doesn’t improve we will be taking her to the doggy Dr for them to have a look just in case .

                I cant believe this is the last weekend of September already , where the heck did this month go ?

The odd butterfly , bee , Dragon fly and Cicada are still around as well , the crickets are chirping up a storm all day and night  .

Some trees have changed already but most are still green , even though it is officially fall , summer is hanging on and I think some of mother nature maybe confused . I am enjoying having the windows open all day and night and waking to the freshness of the air each morning , the sun rises and sun sets are soo pretty this time of year  to but it is beginning to get dark earlier now and that I do dread  so I am taking in all I can get from the sun for now .

  This weekend Papa and I are finishing up the garden clean up and a few odd jobs that need to be done and enjoying the lovely weather we are to have more of ,   maybe have a camp fire in the fire pit or one in our Chiminea by the patio .

I am keeping an eye out for this Sundays  Super Moon the Harvest Blood  Moon  I hope to be able to capture it on the horizon as it is rising or at least over the top of our valley ,  I've got to time it just  right   lol !  I hope it is a clear night fingers and toes crossed for this lol !

                               Any who that's it for me for now. Until next time . Hope you all have a good weekend .

The birds and other critters are spoiled. And all they have to put up with for that is the occasion bark of Miggs!

I almost envy you for your lovely weather, it's chilly and wet here after two weeks of rain. A funny but beautifull picture of Chippy on the planks. It's tough for Miggs (and for you) when you cannot walk properly especially for such an active dog. I'm always rather frustrated when Snarf has an injury, it is so difficult to keep him quiet.
Hope you both recover soon and can jump and run again.

You have perfectly captured the change of seasons! We're just starting to see it here, although we still have a hummingbird or two around who are probably not going to be around that much longer. But I hope Migg's knee feels better in a couple of days, and I hope you take time out of a busy weekend, and have some fun!

The colors on your blog are so beautiful today! Love the oranges of fall. So sorry about Miggs (and you as well) with knee troubles. Makes it really hard to keep walking.

we still have a few hummers coming thru here, but we're still hot and dry, too.
