At 9 a.m. yesterday it was already 70 degrees. We knew we were in for another hot one!
28. Blue & 30. Shapes
I love the blue on and the shapes of these pots and tea cups made in Russia.
29. Flip Flops
31. My own theme: Busy, busy, busy…
And that’s a wrap for the July photo a day challenge. Thank you Kati for the prompts.
Welcome to August. We are starting the month off in record breaking heat here in the Seattle area. I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken record. We don’t have any big plans for August. Tomorrow we’ll travel to Canada for a get-together. Later in the month we have a small group barbecue here. Dear will be working at our son’s home doing a remodel hoping there are no big surprises when they remove walls, etc. I have lots of before and afters to post on this old house. The latest are two windows added to the garage/shop.
Since I’m having a hard time posting one photo-a-day I’ve decided to post days 2 through 8 of Kati’s photo challenge in one post. On November 1st I did post the first challenge prompt, my name starts with here.
November 2nd ~ Number
This is a special number for Dear and I this year. We were married in 1974 so on December 6th we celebrate 40 years of marriage. I thought it was fun that the Seattle Sounders are celebrating their 40th anniversary, too. We celebrated already this year with a trip to England but that won’t stop us from celebrating on the actual day, too.
November 3rd ~ Leaf
We had a very blustery, stormy day on Thursday of this week and I tried to catch a leaf falling. I’m glad this one was facing my camera for a second!
November 4th ~ Brown
This photo was taken at the church that was used in Downton Abbey for the weddings. The little town where some of the filming is done is called Bampton and we had a fun quick visit there reliving some of the scenes.
We woke up to beautiful sunshine today. We had such a blustery day yesterday with a mix of brightness and darkness throughout the day. I managed to to fill a yard waste bin full of leaves in between rain showers. The wind gusts are of course made more leaves fall. Hopefully the dryness will last so we can mow the lawn for the last time till Spring. Looking forward to a weekend at home after being away last weekend.
