Nothing big and overwhelming happens. Nothing awful happens. Not much happens. But life at the lake continues to be peaceful. Even Lizzie has her ying/yan thing going.
We've had some sunshine.
We've had some rain.
And the temperature has dropped. We're seeing signs of fall and I am so not ready!
But I have to admit, the rows of goldenrod are certainly beautiful.
I've baked a bit. Love the heart in the cookie!
The tomatoes are glorious! (And he tomato sauce I've made with the San Marzano's I got at the farmer's market is delicious! I'll get more next market. It's all going in the freezer for the winter.)
Speaking of glorious -- this is not unusual, this pink sky. (The calm lake is a little less frequent these day.)
My walks yield surprises, like a kite stuck in the wires.
And for those who follow Mural Monday and saw THIS post -- the "P" is back! I guess the people who live there just got tired of their mural!
During the day, Rick works. I paint.
I almost always paint from my photos (or sketches) but I did try some painting from life. This was a quartet of acorns and my dead flowers.
And some veggies from my farmer's market haul.
...but I do like how this one turned out.
I did get to the post office to mail a set of Christmas (and one birthday) cards that were painted and special ordered. Three cheers, and thanks!
In the evenings we might play a game, watch a video or read. Rick plotted out his revised bike trip.
Rick got off on his revised bike hike, this one for three days.
Maybe the second time is the charm!
I'll miss seeing his bike by the door!
But he's having a good ride. Apart from a five hour power failure, time here has been good. I did a little painting, a little cleaning, some cooking, reading, walking... all good. And Lizzie?
She'll do what she does best -- chill out. Or, given that the days are a little chilly, warm up by the fire!
Nope, not much happening. But it's all good.
