The Remains of Summer Thru My Lens Continued . . .

Yesterday was the first day of school and even though the calendar says we're still a few weeks away from the official start of fall, I already feel like summer is becoming a distant memory.  The temperatures have been pretty mild for New York.  The humidity has been pretty tolerable most days.  We've even had the air conditioning off and the windows open a couple of days.  We are not a family that tolerates the heat very well so it's been an absolute pleasure!!  : )

Roses in Harlem, New York City.


The Farmer's Almanac says that New York as well as other parts of the northeast are in for a winter with above average temps and above average amounts of snow.  We'll just have to wait and see if they're right and deal with it when the time comes.  I have to be honest and say I love the idea of being snowed in.  Especially when my husband doesn't have to work.  : )  Our next house has to have a fireplace.  There's nothing cozier then sitting in front of a fireplace while there's snow falling outside!!



A disco ball at the Dutchess County Fair.  I was sooooo tempted to buy this!!!  : )
Daisies in my garden earlier this summer.
We made some great memories this summer. A trip to Lake George, NY.  A trip to Wildwood Crest, NJ.  Several day trips and time spent with friends.  I'm so looking forward to fall.  The leaves, the cool, crisp air, the gorgeous autumn skies.  And, of course, Halloween!!!  My favorite holiday!!!!  My daughter has already put in her order for another princess costume.  : )

My friend Susan's newest addition to her family.  His name is "Bacon." I assure you he will not be eaten though!!!  : )

Many blessings for a beautiful day ~ Wendy

Lovely photos! And couldn't agree more about sitting in front of the fire when it's snowing outside. Unfortunately we don't have a fire either (and it doesn't snow much where I live).

Stunning photos you are a talented photographer. I totally agree about sitting in front of a fire there is nothing like toasting your toes. We have a multi fuel stove which is a delight we don't get a lot of snow thank goodness. Have a great weekend.
