Random things I saw

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/only-sixteen/

Yesterday I was able to get out for a walk at work (and I am hoping to again today).  It’s always good getting out for some fresh air and exercise in the middle of a day of sitting at a desk.  It’s changing out there though – late August, heading into fall.  It still felt like summer, but it was cooler, and there are fewer blooms as well as leaves lying on the ground.   I love fall – it’s my favourite time of the year, and I (like everyone else I know) am really looking forward to rain finally beginning.  This weekend, we hope.  Yes.  People are wanting rain so much they don’t even care if it happens on the weekend!

Oh, and just as a side note, the final painting of the house has been on hold this week as the painters vanished to another job without warning.  They have been great, but it’s frustrating to see the house so close to being done but not knowing when it will be done.  I just want it done!!

Anyway, here are some random things I saw yesterday – on my walk, in my garden – ending with Elliot!

  1. I can almost feel and smell your lovely walk! Thanks!

  2. I have never seen anything like that espaliered spruce, Em !!! – extraordinary !
    Lovely shots, all – but especially Elliott. Where was Jasper, pray ?

  3. We are all as anxious to see the finished result as you are…How dare those painters! Same thing happened to me. My neighbors gave them 1/2 down to paint their house while they were only 1/3 finished with mine. They immediately switched over to my neighbor’s house and never did really finish–just slapped one coat of paint on and tried to charge me extra. Ooops. Not very tactful of me to mention this. I’m sure your painters have better ethics. http://judydykstrabrown.com/2015/08/26/sixteen-the-combiners-excerpt/

    • I know. I finally have talked to them and they said a big contractor, for whom they do a lot of work, called them and they couldn’t say no. We were fine with it because it is almost done, and they are supposed to come back tomorrow. Of course, also coming back tomorrow is supposed to be the rain, so this should be interesting…

  4. Amaaaaazing shots 😊😀
