Summer's End - Hiatus

Summer is almost over!
As I've said before, "time flies when you are having fun".
And fun is exactly what my granddaughter and I have had this summer.
It's been a joy for me, to spend every day with my sweet Beep.
 
A couple "end of summer celebration" photos.
 
 "Lets' all go to the Dairy Queen".
 
A lot of people take "selfies", Beep and I take "each others".
 
We are usually hitting the road this time of year, making our way up to cottage country for a vacation. Plans had to be changed this summer, due to my health issues. We will be "vacationing" at home.
 
A blast from the past (vacation), not so long ago.
 
photo by Hubbers...
who rarely picks up a camera, but when he does, it's more often than not, to take a pic of me taking pics. He grabs the point and shoot camera from my bag, and randomly snaps a few. I am always surprised when I load the photos from that camera to the computer, and more often than not, he has captured more beauty than he intended, and I am not referring to me!

I am taking a blogging break,
well actually, I am taking a break from most things...
other than resting, recuperating and rejuvenating.
 
Until next time...
CHEERS!

Beauty and the Baldies

 
My one and only hummingbird sighting this year in my yard.

 Molting Blue Jays
 
Blue Jays go through one complete head molt a year in late summer, (as do Northern Cardinals). There is nothing wrong with them, and the feathers will grow back.

Flowers and Flutters

In the garden...I see a faerie!
 

It's Beep's last week of summer holidays before going back to school.
Time flies when you are having fun!

The Calm Before The Storm

 
Lots of weird weather happening lately.

Lake Huron sunset, beautiful, but a bit ominous.
