We have a few more days until fall officially makes its bow and we welcome a new season with the autumnal equinox. But I'm still remembering summer.
Please join me over at Modern Creative Life this week while I reflect on summer's way of being an escape from the nine-month year, those months from September through May where our schedules seem to get out of control.
The theme of this issue is "Escape" and escape I do. It may involve a black and white cat, a walk down a wooded road, or a dip in the lake.
And of course, there will be a sunset.
I'd like to take you with me, so come on over, right HERE!

When last we left our happy travelers, we had wrapped up the Tudors at the Cleveland Art Museum . But there was much more to see and we were...
We recently headed to Cleveland for an extended family wedding. It was the first trip I'd taken (apart from to the kids or to the lake) ...
I went to a wonderful estate sale last month -- but it was also a sad one. The resident of the home was the dad of a high school friend of m...
Nice article Jeanie. I am with you about having the lake as a place to escape those usual chores. And the lake is a place for escape. Even for those pink flamingo floats! They will go back into winter storage way too soon. Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika
LOVE your escapes, Jeanie. It is wonderful that you can do that. That is such a sweet kitty! xo Diana
What a lovely escape!
I feel the Autumn breezes in the morning, Jeanie, but we still have warm days. Always love your creative and wonderful photos. : )
I'm holding on to summer as long as I can. Loved your article over at your other blog.
I love your post today Jeanie. I wish I could hang on to summer for another few months. It just whizzed by this year and was so very hot too. I kept too busy doing a lot of catch up. One year I hope to enjoy the summer more ;-)
What a beautifully written post. Sadly, I'm ready for autumn. I can see you love it, though as your photos and words so eloquently convey. Thanks for taking us over there, too.
Off to take a look....
Bravo! Off I go!
So it´s not just me who really does not like those cold, dark months....
At least we will escape come end of nasty January :-)
Off to your other blog!
Hello, it is great you can escape to the lake. I am always ready for a walk in the woods. Your kitty looks very relaxed and cute. Love the beautiful sunset!
Have a happy day and weekend!
Good morning Jeanie! Hoping over now.
I always enjoy your summer escapes Jeannie. I especially love going to the lake and finding Harry at the ditch. Thanks for taking us along.
Thanks for sharing, Jeanie!
Jeanie, I loved the pictures. I have to say, I had some really great times this summer...but they were not outside...this is the hottest summer ever for me. I didn't enjoy the heat. I actually sat on my porch more last winter than this summer. Even at that, I hate for our summer to be waning, to be leaving us wanting more. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
I enjoyed your article. You write beautifully.
I popped over to read it... Lovely article.
The cat seems very relaxed!
Hi...jumped over and read about your summer.... looks like you had a great one. I know I have and I am looking forward to the approaching fall. I love fall. As the colder weather comes in after fall, the furbabes and I will have to adjust to closing up the deck....but I think I can handle that, Lily on the other hand might have withdrawals!
what a great summer and your kitty is so sweet.
I read your article. It was excellent.
A lovely escape indeed . . .
I ask why as well . . . “why” a manicured lawn at the cottage . . .
No mower, leaf blower sounds . . . let the birds sing, loons, wind, rain . . .
Cottage life, sounds, relaxation . . .
I liked seeing the Crocosmia on your walk, other plantings too.
Great writing, reflecting Jeanie . . ,
I enjoyed your story! :D
Beautiful pictures Jeanie.
I can't wait for our Summer to begin, right now Spring is being very wet and windy.
I guess I haven't commented here, but just on FB. I loved your articles and all you have to say each time you write.
The end of summer is always a little sad to me - plants start winding down, leaves drop off trees, and world goes dormant during the coming cold weather. Lovely photos of your lake retreat.
Sunset by the lake <3
