We had a much needed rain overnight and will have showers and maybe some hard rain today. I will be stuck in real estate school all day for mandatory education for license renewal. It will be a long day. See you later. I get these shadows on my cottage as the sun goes down to the west.
I haven't cut my grass in over two weeks because we have had no rain. I have a family of rabbits out back and one of them likes the corner of my front yard closest to my front door. I took a short video of him eating grass there a few minutes ago.
See it HERE.
I love all of the exterior photos of the farmhouse pictured above. There is a very comprehensive house tour of the interior too HERE. The idea of a tour is to embrace the things you love and ignore the things you don't. If you get one good idea, that's great! Have a wonderful weekend. xo
Here's the whole lot of cookies being sold as they were decorated. I think these are supposed to depict fireflies inside a jar. I used to have one on my night table almost every night when I was a kid. Have a great weekend.
Cantaloupe juice with mint. So delicious and refreshing. It was nice and thick like slush. I am going to try to make this at home in my Cuisinart. Just wonderful!
Wish I had one this morning.
I went out to lunch yesterday with my friend Kelly. We went to The Artist Baker in Morristown where everything was made from scratch. I should have purchased these scones for my breakfast this morning but sadly, I did not. Kale with Cheddar Cheese! Sounds delicious too.
I took quite a few photos of these young bluebirds and decided to show you more.
I didn't know they were bluebirds at first. They visited this site the day before these photos were taken and there was a lot more water in the bowl. They were quite skittish testing the depth of the water to make sure they wouldn't drown. The next day they took the plunge after the sun had evaporated the water to their preferred depth. This was thrilling to watch. I hope these juveniles come back and I'm sure they will. Have a great Monday. xo
Shaun Evans returns for a third season of the popular PBS series as the young Endeavour Morse, before his signature red Jaguar but with his deductive powers already running in high gear. In four new films, Endeavour must deal with the aftermath of the tragic events that left him languishing in prison, and his senior officer DI Fred Thursday (Roger Allam) with a life-threatening injury.
It's on tonight in my area 9:00-10:30. It is followed by a new 30-minute series called THE TUNNEL. It's about British and French detectives brought together after a body is discovered in the Channel Tunnel. I set my recorded for that too! Finally something to watch. So happy.
You know how much I love a painted floor and this one is exceptional! Happy Friday. This would be a nice place to wile away the weekend, wouldn't it? My life has been devoted lately to weeding, weeding, and more weeding. My birds are wonderful this year and I've been pulling weeds by hand. I don't spray and my gravel driveway is looking better. See you later. xo
This is the back of the main house looking toward the garden shed. Front view is gorgeous too. #realestate #newvernon #hardingtownship #nj #weichert #myoffice #countryestate #zipcode07976 #31acres #oldguard #farmland #ig
I watched this movie over the weekend and LOVED IT. For some reason I decided to look in the Foreign Films section at the library and it was filled with movies made in Great Britain in English with no subtitles. I was so happy!
Maggie Smith and Judi Dench are wonderful as is the story and the scenery. Look for it at your library or find it on Netflix. You can thank me later! Click the second photo to enlarge and read the description. xo
