A Walk on a Fine Summer's Day

My puppies wanted to take a walk.

How could I say "not now" to this face.

So I grabbed my camera and down the gravel road we went. 

Halfway down the road there is this abandoned house. I just love it.

Fall is definitely in the air and painted on the landscape.

We walked 3/4 of a mile down to a wild apple tree. I made pork chops, apples, and cabbage in the crock pot using tart apples from this tree last week. The house smelled so good and supper was delicious. Here's a link to the recipe. The recipe calls for pork loin but I used two humungus thick pork chops. Yum!

Barbed wire and an old fence post.

It's sad to see summer fading away but I'll embrace Fall as it slowly arrives.

Have a safe and great week everyone and keep lifting up the people of Texas in your prayers.

Wet in the UP

This is at my house. So much rain this summer. August has been a monsoon. I picked one tomato out of my garden today. My poor garden never really was this year. Too much rain and too many slugs.

We spent this past weekend down at camp after the rain had stopped. This is how high the river got.

I am truly sorry at my lack of posts this summer. My internet just isn't working. I even got a new laptop I had been saving for and it, too, is sooooo sloooow. I called Century Link but they say everything is fine. Now how can that be? When this time last year it worked so much better. I've done numerous posts only to have them disappear completely when I try to publish.

Very. Frustrating.

I'll try to get this worked out.

Thanks for letting me vent :)
