Another Good Day

Outside on cottage, windows and doors are many Lady Bugs, just seems more this year.
My mama always said they were good luck - if true then I will really have a lot of luck :)
At 12:30  cooked my favorite, fried chicken, collard greens with red peppers and mashed potatoes,
now do not have to cook - maybe for 2 days.   Want to make an upside down cake today
using apples, walnuts, raisins and cranberries instead of the usual pineapple.
Rain coming in late today and suppose to be an all week rain and cooler.
Wish the soybeans in front would be cut before it rains on them.  May still happen....

I have been staying so busy, a lot accomplished inside and know this energy is
a cortisone high and it will soon go away - but nice at the moment.
The last shot received 4 1/2 months ago and for a short time felt as though I could run to the big city
instead of driving my car...

I like this unusual soap dish, so pretty and  was among presents from my daughter's visit,
Bought on her recent trip to France.

This may be the day that energy level returns to normal....

The pumpkins look so pretty!!! I love the soap dish too. Your cake sound wonderful! I picked you zinnia seeds yesterday, will bring this week.

That lady bug photo had perfect focus. There are many because the USDA brings them in to farmers to eat the aphids. You may find them on your window sills in the winters. So glad the shot is working. Enjoy the ride!!

What a lovely header with those bright, orange pumpkins! Ladybirds are really useful in gardens as they eliminate many pests!

Someone is commenting by email
wanting to know the name of a tree
that I posted about
quite awhile ago
I do not know the name of the tree
just an old tree that I came upon.
Will not answer emails of those I do not know who they are...

I love seeing lady bugs - the photo is great. Don't overdo - though your meal sounds delish!
