Everyone around here is saying the same thing…that this is one of the rainiest summers ever! Today there is sun but it’s going to rain again soon. Yesterday it rained most of the day…it was a beautiful cleansing rain but it really poured. It rained so hard and so often that doing anything outside on Saturday or Sunday was impossible. All of my flowers are either growing bountifully or drowning! The first photo is from the family room…a glimpse at yesterday’s dreariness…the second photo is one of the marigolds under the deck…overgrowing their pots! We can’t keep up with weeds. We haven’t watered anything. Yesterday morning Den said there was a sea bird on our deck railing. Yikes!
Den and I loved watching Acorn TV over the weekend…faves were Agatha Raisin, Vera, and something called Loch Ness. All were filmed either in beautiful villages or breathtaking seaside ones. There is just something special about a good English mystery. Some of these were cozy…some were chilling…all were great fun! Whatever crime Agatha Raisin is working on…she is always wearing very high heels!
Finished this and it was magnificent!
I was so excited to almost read three books last week…but I am not sure why…probably due to the weather. One night we turned off the tv and just read…it was wonderful.
Not sure what I will read this week…perhaps one of these? And I am trying to find the book that has a little girl wearing red shoes on the cover…I know I have it but it’s sort of lost on my Kindle! Oh where oh where can it be?
I really want this IKEA chaise or chair and ottoman for our bedroom…I have wanted this forever but Den is not fond of IKEA furniture…but for our bedroom I think it would be fine. For some odd reason these two cuties have decided that our bed is also their bed! I am the odd man out when we come upstairs to watch TV at night! In their little kitty heads whatever is mine is theirs! I am incapable of moving them! Sigh!
We were planning on a walk at Longwood Gardens today but I am off to the treadmill…it’s clouding over and looking gloomy outside as I write!
