::: monday's summer pics :::

on a Wednesday... It was the last of the Summer series this week with the final day of summer officially landing on Monday.
I have only so subtly felt Autumn encroaching on us. Watching the lengthening shadows and the wee freshness to the air in the early morn but it is a slow change this year. Much slower than this time last... I wonder why. Maybe it is because it is still so very hot and well....the watched pot never boils.

I have thrown together a little mosaic of my summer Mondays and being still without a new snappy love I haven't any new pics to share right now...other than perhaps some rather rough one's on my phone of the works on the house.
And on that front all is adventurous, somewhat testing and never dull...
We are again sleeping in our finished bedroom (lovely) and are yet to tackle the dismantling and completing of the next...
The deck is well underway and is proving to be bigger and better than expected but not without some anxiety on my part in general regarding big change (I'm silly like that)....a sewerage pipe accident...and a little bobcat budget blowout....

But perhaps by next week I will be laying back out there... with a view of the patch... in my hammock I haven't stretched out in for years from lack of hanging space...sipping some new chai and really welcoming the light change of Autumn.

Happy days.

you've done a wonderful job of capturing summer. my favourite one is of the little one in the tyre swing :)
I'm pretty happy to be moving onto autumn - it's my favourite time of the year.

Fall is my favorite, enjoy! We are coming out of winter soon. Still so weird to think about people in other parts of the world, experiencing diferent seasons. Especially seeing such awesome photos of summer as I look out my window @ snow.
And I can't wait to see the renovations you have done ;)
Blessings,
Molly

Hammock and chai? Oh, lovely thoughts for the middle of a very snowy winter here in the Eastern USA.

Beautiful collage.
Good luck with the remodeling. We're in the midst of that too...except we didn't go about it the sensible way of one room at a time, so everything is in upheaval. Uck! I keep reminding myself of how wonderful it will be once its all done.

Heather said...

What a beautiful collage of images. I love coming here and seeing all of the gorgeous color that you are able to capture. Hope you are having a great week

we've had some lovely autumn weather. each year, i'm tempted to think that the summer is over when we get this first week of mid 20's. but then each year we are stung with another heatwave.....and i think 'that's right, it's not over, till it's over'. so, we will see what the next few weeks hold for us. for now, i am enjoying cooler evenings and lovely sunny still days.
love your photos - they remind me that summer can also be good.
