This is it, folks. The last day of August. Summer is coming fast to a close. Tomorrow is the start of my most favorite time of year, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. The kids are enjoying their last full week off before school starts. The animals certainly look ready for cooler weather, hiding out in the shade all day being lethargic. Even inside,the cats have been favoring darker, cooler spots under beds during the day.
Unfortunately my battery charger for my camera has died, so the pictures in this post are all from my phone.
Little Poppet, who is almost a year old now and still impossibly tiny.
I started working on my sweater again for the first time in a few months. I realized that Rhinebeck is not actually that far away now, so I’d better get it done!
A portion of the garden’s output this year. I may have been robbed of my tomatoes (stupid deer), but boy my pumpkins have come through!
Asters and mums!!!!
There’s still plenty of goldenrod all around as well.
Flapjack and Charlie have become something of an item. He follows Charlie wherever he goes, and Charlie shares his food with him. Normally, Charlie will snap at anyone who gets in on his food (the chickens, the goats, the dogs, Churchill), but for some reason he doesn’t mind Flapjack. Must be love!
While Flapjack is following Charlie, Charlie is generally following me. He loves having his ears scratched!
Of course, I think he also is always hoping I’ll have a treat for him.
Morning glories! You know what that means………my birthday is just around the corner!
