I'm Writing Today at Modern Creative Life

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!

Sharing this week with:   Pink Saturday

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

I feel the Autumn breezes in the morning, Jeanie, but we still have warm days. Always love your creative and wonderful photos. : )

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.

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!

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.

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

The cat seems very relaxed!

Pam Jackson said...

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.

Sandra Cox said...

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.

Marilyn Miller said...

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.
