Another gorgeous day!

But they say humidity and hotter temps are going to be moving in.  Oh well, it is Summer in the Ozarks and I have central air so unless we lose power I am blessed to be able to cool off if I get too warm outside.  I woke up early again and it is a gift!  I get so much done (for me anyway).  Yesterday I made snicker doodles with wheat flour and white flour and sugar.  It was a REAL FOOD recipe but it must have been after the 100 day challenge as white flour and sugar are both processed.  Not that she doesn't ever have them but they try to limit processed food of any kind.  They're crispy just how I like them!
  I worked outside most of the afternoon....weeding, painting, mulching and knitting!  Yes, I said knitting!  I washed off my Adirondack (plastic which need a paint job) chairs and set them up "under the shade of the old Oak tree" in my neighbors yard..............it was marvelous....I could take a break outside from my outside work just like I do when I work inside.  I filled a bowl of water for the girls too.  There was a nice breeze and I had hung a load of rugs out on the line. 
I think the girls really liked it too........especially with their own bowl of water...........
Miss Peeps looks out the window and she cries.....I can hear her as I had the kitchen windows open.  She  is such a 'mama's girl'! LOL!  She got right in my  face when I came in as if to say "don't leave me like that"..........she's still my baby.

 I'll have more pictures tomorrow of what I did but I was so tired by the time I came in I wasn't about to go back out to take pictures....I am 'tuckered'!  But it was so good to be outside and get stuff done and enjoy the beautiful weather.  I hope you had a great day too!  What are you all up to this weekend?
Happy Trails!

    1. Ha! Ha! I just take 'breaks' when I get warm or my legs get tired. This morning I am mighty stiff from weeding and lifting landscape stones so I might work inside today. This 'old age' stuff is for the birds! LOL!

  2. I like how you set your chairs up in the shade of the oak tree and knitted. I love to sit outside here at the lake and knit or crochet. Poor miss peeps. She does look pretty sad. Did you give her lots of cuddles when you went inside? I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
    Blessings, Betsy

    1. You and Katrina gave me the idea! I kept waiting until I got my little corner patio cleared off but why wait? I thoroughly enjoyed it! I'll have to move it when I mow but it was lovely to actually sit and enjoy the beautiful weather and outdoors! Miss Peeps gets lots of love! She is my baby!

    1. I know, I feel bad for her but for me to inoculate her and Grace to be outside cats would cost more plus outside cats don't live very long here.....there are too many other critters that love cats for dinner! Even when little Annie goes out at night she wants Nitty to go with her and she stays close to the house!

  7. We're enjoying beautiful weather in the Southern Appalachians too. So thankful it isn't like last year - upper 90s starting in May through October! It will be hot soon enough, so let's enjoy it while we can. :)

  10. Miss Peeps is cute, our cats do the same thing...it's like they're saying "why do the DOGS get to go out and not us????" Poor things...too dangerous outside the house for our lovely cats! I'm so glad you enjoyed some outdoor knitting! I'm enjoying the porch and warmer weather! :)
