Yup that it is , our last long weekend of the summer . The kiddies in the area are back to school as of tomorrow as the school bus will be passing by twice a day now Mon to Fri .
It was a nice weekend , the weather was pleasant . We were busy on and off, got some things done that we wanted to do. Miggs went to the groomer for a spa day on Saturday to get all trimmed and bathed whilst we did some shopping and some shopping of a different kind . Car parts shopping .
We went to the wreckers after Miggs was done at the groomers and there was a dog there that made friends with Miggs and she loved it, people in and out patting her on their way past. Then when we got home Papa got busy with an oil change he did to the van and put in a new to us but used switch for the indicators , lights and what not to a new motor for the back window windshield wiper , this van is 10 years old and knock on wood running well still thanks to Papa being able to do a lot of the work on it himself and having a good reasonable mechanic up the road as well for any of the big jobs lol he was also busy redoing a hood from the wrecker for our van as the original hood was rusting inside and out and really not that salvageable so he got the same model of hood only in better shape , but it was teal blue , now he did still have to do some body work to it and prime and paint and then finish up with a clear coating .
Old hood !
His first time ever doing this and I think he did a wonderful job .
Re done hood that was in teal blue from the wrecker . It is a perfect match and done very well , great job Papa !
Now it is time to get things prepared for fall which is just around the corner on September 22nd the first day of the fall equinox . WOW ! time fly's doesn't it ?!
I got some lovely mums from my mother in law and I have them on my front porch .
Soon it will be time to cut and trim back plants and put the gardens to bed for the season as things slowly die off whilst other plants thrive for the cooler weather and rake in all the harvest gardens for some , chop wood for fireplaces and cozy down with sweaters and blankets . Fall is approaching fast ! I am loving the cooler nights and days and having the windows open to now that the humidity has left but sad that the summer is almost over .
My last post was of this pretty white dove I named Snowy who came to visit us and stayed around and ate food from our hands and perched up in the trees at night and was kind enough to grace us with it’s presents and get photos . But I am sad to report that Snowy has now gone, sadly taken by a predator during the night as I found evidence of white feathers all over the ground .. RIP Snowy we will miss you ! Nature .. can be both kind and cruel .
Until next time
