Last of the Summer Days

How are you spending the last of your Summer days~
Or has school started already for you?

Yes, this is pretty much what we've been doing...
(And yes, Pushing Daisies in coming back ~
been watching late night TV
The Tivo's been Seasoned Passed for this one already
I love the set of this show and the dog, of course!)

This is how Zeke's been spending his time
(while not watching General Hospital or going to the cool beach)

Ahh, nice cool walks in the morning, look how the clouds surround the mountain

We will be spending the next few days watching new movies and I will
have some reading to do with new magazines. I am especially excited
about the new Artful Blogging. I see there are a lot of talented ladies
in this issue but have got to say a personal (french accent)
Bonjour ~ Félicitations Nancy!

I found something new (food again) and I had to
laugh along with the bagger at the gourmet store

putting the brioche hot dogs buns
in my Marie Antoinette reusable tote - Quite appropriate!

In my travels, I found two pieces of an antique french gate ~
(well, here's one of the pieces) lovely, don't you think?

Ooh, beautiful things, this reminds me ~ Shabby Addict is having a
Thank you Giveaway. Visit her before Sunday here!

Back on the road for a while, I've missed everyone but am enjoying

The Last Days of Summer ~

I'd love to know what you've been up to and can't wait to get caught up
with everyone I love to visit so very much and have missed so much!

Until next week, when it's.... back to the real world ~
(yikes, I'll think about it then!)

Good morning Tracie :)

You'll laugh, but I thought that was you for a split second LOL

It's sounds like you are taking full advantage of the last days of summer. Good! You deserve to :)

How come everytime I visit you I'm hungry?.... hmmmm....


Michelle said...

Enjoy your end of summer..I'm with Zeke ~ he looks pretty cozy.

See ya later,

Suzy said...

I am so glad you are enjoying every second of summer. I believe I already missed most of the summer days and since it is still so very hot (not normal hot) I really do not have the feeling that the summer is ending. Maybe I am just hoping that I will find some time for few fun family days out there.

I miss you too, "see" you soon! Suzy

Suzy said...

Thanks for the walk, it is always nice to be with you.



Good for you Tracie. We don't take down time often enough. I'm sure Zeke feels you are on the right track. And the weather is perfect for walking. I love brisk weather.

I wondered were you had been off to.

I've never heard of Pushing Daisy's, were oh were have I been.

Road trips I love road trips. Looks like a back road around were I live.

Don't read your mag's with low light it will hurt your eye's, I hear my mother saying.

Ta Ta for now.

Hello there........
Sounds like you have been having a few lazy days of summer. Good for you..time to read and watch a bit of tele.
I get bored to quick and lose interest in t.v...I love reading though and relaxin with old tunes on the radio.
How is that other project coming?

Brenda Kula said...

My girls are long grown, so I don't even think about school anymore. Except when I try and remember what time it is in the p.m. and if the buses will be out there clogging traffic and should I hurry up and get my groceries! I'm with Zeke, just chillin'.

Fifi Flowers said...

Wow... a lot to comment on... First... Pushing Daisy is so much FUN! Reminds me of the movie Amelie (which I am painting at the moment)
Second... French hot dogs... the French eat hot dogs? ooh la la!
Third... Back to school... back to a life... lol... I will miss them... but hey, a few hours for moi... c'est magnifique!
ENJOY the last days of summer!
