I woke up with the birds this overcast Sunday morning.
There is a light drizzle and the sound of summer locusts has been replaced by the constant chirp of crickets.
Summer is fading away fast.
Although I am ready for some cooler less humid days
I am not ready for summer to end.
I will miss those lazy days floating with the soft bay current.
Ice tea and sandwiches on the deck after swimming.
Mostly, I will miss this carefree summer schedule.
School starts at the end of August for my youngest.
As much as we have denied it's coming
we finally had to face it and pick up the much needed school supplies.
Fresh pencils and notebook paper are always fun ~ for the first week.
Oh well, I guess we better enjoy what is left of the season.
I made the most delicious treat last night.
It is called Apple Cinnamon Upside down cake ~
and oh my goodness.. it was great!
In fact.. I think that I will heat up a piece for breakfast!
This simple cake calls for a tube of cinnamon rolls, pecans, apples ( I used apple pie filling), brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter.
~ for the complete easy recipe visit The Lady Behind The Curtain.
While on the hunt for a new desk
I found some great treasures at the thrift shops this weekend.
I LOVE enamalware,
I just can't get enough of it.
Boy, was I thrilled find this set of 3 yellow enamal bowls.
They cost me $5.00 and are in perfect condition!
Just in time for Fall
I found this festive pumpkin serving dish/bowl
How much fun it this..
I don't know what I will use it for first!
Lastly I found this sweet wooden cabinet for $10.00
and I was completely smitten with it.
I love to hang things on the walls that are 3 dimensional
and this is the perfect touch to the livingroom.
I have no idea what I will put inside of it!
As for the rest of this peaceful Sunday
I am going to do the dreaded laundry
give this house a good cleaning
fry apples to go with some delicious baked pork chops
take the Jeep out for a ride somewhere.
Have a wonderful week everyone!!
