First thing we had a drive to church-me to help decorate for our church anniversary celebration on Sunday--37 years!  After a good pizza lunch and a few errands, we were home and took a ride on the golf cart to see how the back of the property fared.  This is the cassia in bloom.  A bit flattened but still blooming!
I think this view would make a good puzzle!  
If you look dead center, you will see the egret which has moved in!
We also found this lady quite a ways from the pond to lay eggs....she is a Painted Turtle. About 15" across her shell.

There's still quite a bit of yard pick-up happening but again we are thankful not have been in the cross hairs of that hurricane!



  1. Whew....hopefully that will be the last of it for a while. This weather is CRAZY. 80 here this past week. I see a cold front on the way so maybe fall is going to return before all the leaves are gone. I hate going from summer to winter. It's hard on the system.

  2. Glad you escaped damage from Nicole! We get to see egrets here and an occasional turtle, but your photo reminded me it's been ages since we've seen a turtle. It's pretty chilly here and we had our first frost a couple of days ago which some of our plants failed to survive!

  3. Glad all went well for you with the storm. That is one big TURTLE!!!

  4. I am SO glad that you escaped major issues with the storm. You are a very busy lady. We took our diesel pick-up to my sisters so Dennis could plug it in. We're having lows around 10F and highs right around 30F so he didn't want to take chances. She has an extra driveway with electricity so that took care of our problem. We probably don't need it in the winter anyway, it's mainly to help us move, and pull the trailer.
    Take care and have a wonderful time at the celebration tomorrow.
    Blessings and hugs,

I had so much fun making a coaster from the Diamond Dotz kit.  A very relaxing way to spend an hour! I also whipped up another Shop Hop Bloc...
