A short post

Another project

We have so many projects going on lately that it’s almost overwhelming.  Everything seems to come up all at once in the usual when it rains, it pours fashion.  I wonder why things cluster that way.


Our house-sitters will be here soon.  (If you’re reading, thank you M&M.)  M and I are leaving sometime tomorrow morning.  I am looking forward to some aspects of the trip.  Others, well… we’ll see.

Juvenile maple

It is beginning to feel like autumn.  The winds are gusty and carry a distinct chill with them.  The temperature has been dropping since I got up this morning.

We had a little sunshine this morning.  Very little.  The rain will be here soon.

Bella and the pumpkin

I have a lot to do (finish the laundry, get the house and cats ready for our departure, pack, etc.), and it’s time for me to get back to it.  Thanks for stopping by the Bogs today.  Bundle up.  It’s going down into the 40s.  Hard to believe that within a few months, the 40s will feel warm.  And another thank you for all of the well wishes yesterday.  The daily yoga practice must have helped because my back is doing fairly well today.  🙂

    Have you already told us where you are headed this time? I’ve been a bit behind with my blog reading this week due to the series I’m posting (no excuse really!) I hope wherever you are headed is warm and wonderful.

    Hope your trip is successful. Perhaps you’ll get another chance at autumn — two autumns in one season!

  4. Have a great trip, Robin. Bella looks awfully cute with the pumpkin!

    Oh I’m very happy to have found your post. I was looking for posts tagged “cats” and in the preview saw the first picture of this post and couldn’t pass it without getting a closer look. I’m happy I opened the whole page. There are so many warm beautiful colors here.

      Thank you, Alexandra. And thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. I appreciate it. 🙂

      P.S. I do post cat photos every now and then. I have two who like to ham it up sometimes when they see the camera.

  13. Is that really the color of your wall? I love it!!
    Enjoy your trip!

    • Robin says:

      Thanks, Michaela. 🙂

      Yep, it’s really the color of my living room wall. It was a big pain to achieve as it involved a few mistakes before I eventually ended up with something almost resembling the color washed effects I was trying to get.

  14. Bella – chat très belle! ♥
    Is your ceiling yellow or is the orange wall making it appear yellow? I love the way colors interact with each other…
    Hope you’re having a lovely trip!

      Thank you, Barbara. 🙂

      The ceiling is white, but the orange wall and sunlight combined to make it look yellow in this photo. But if you move to the foyer or the dining room, they are painted yellow which transitions you from the cobalt blue of the kitchen to the orange of the dining room.

    Bella is such a beauty! I love to see her make an appearance here. 🙂

    Great collection of photos. Yes, totally familiar with the ‘project list’ (I think we have the exact same ladder). Orange is one of my favorite colors so of course, your top image really speaks to me. Safe travels!

Thank you for visiting, and for commenting. I hope you'll join me at my new blog home, Breezes at Dawn.
