The week Hurricane Hermine made her appearance, my daughter and I went to an Estate liquidation in Clearwater. The house was old and the family was getting it ready to sell. For some reason this house reminded me of cottages you see in movies. I can imagine many evenings sitting out on the patio, looking out over Tampa Bay, sipping cold lemonade and enjoying the magnificent Florida sunsets.
Everyone seems to be calling for Fall as the month of September has made
it's entrance. Our weather has been pleasant enough to sit on the
back porch and sip my tea and enjoy a new to me literary series.
you met Flavia? She is the star of these books by Alan Bradley. They
are a little bit of a mystery series, but oh so fun to read. I'm
already on my third book in the series.
Just a little bit of a sweet, and my cup of decaf tea to wash it all down.
starting to bring out my Fall china so this Johnson Brothers cup and
saucer seemed quite appropriate for today. "Pomona" is the pattern.
Sit back and relax and enjoy the coming of the season.
Last week, we were bombarded with rain. The effects from Hermine as she passed by our area. Four days of rain - swelling lakes, ponds and streets with retained water. There just wasn't anywhere for the water to go.
But the calm after the storm is always good. Bringing everything back to normal.
Even with rough waters, Clearwater regained her dignity as Hermine swept on by.
I always love to take advantage of my porch. Sometimes in the summer it's too hot to sit outside, but with all the rain we've had, there are some afternoons that lend a touch of cool in the air. It's refreshing enough to enjoy lunch on the porch.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands ~ Psalm 19:1
