From Drinks to Boots

No time for cute nor clever today...and a collective sigh of relief was heard in the land. I am joining Kati's July Photo Challenge; I am only three days behind this being the 17th and all and I am ending with Day 14. Some week, I'll have to catch up.

 8. Drink

9. Calm (why, yes, that is a flannel shirt in July...ahem. Weather changes on a dime this summer.)

10. Busy

11. Vegetable...our first zucchini...we're very proud!

12. soft light

13. shadow

14. On the Floor

This was a challenge for me...can't imagine why as there are plenty of things on the floor...John would like me to remind you that the term is "boots on the ground." What a nut!




Some fine day, I'll catch up! You can find the other participants at Kati's right *here.* Kati's photos can be found *here.* (She should link up!)

By word of explanation, today I am linking to Kati's Photo Challenge and also participating by visiting other participants. This in contrast to the Hodge Podge where I linked to Joyce's excellent meme, but did not link my post at her site nor did I visit all the participants. It can be confusing!

  1. Yep, the weather changes on a dime, here too in western NY. Loved all your photos (waving to John--now, Vee, leave that poor man alone!! giggling)--Have a beautiful Friday, my friend. Blessings

  2. We had a cool, wet spring and a warm-ish and wet summer. But the heat has moved in with a heat index to be 108 for a few days. No flannel shirts here!

  3. That looks like a fun blog party, Vee. I enjoyed seeing your photos. The lemon water looks delicious! Enjoy the rest of July; it is going fast.

  7. Great photos. I sometimes feel like I need to join one of these things just to make me really look and see where I can stretch myself a little in my photography. Have a great weekend Vee!

  9. I like your choice of pictures. I'm especially fond of the calm one. I wish I had time to just sit and enjoy nature. Your zucchini is cute and you have every right to be proud.

  11. Great pictures! The one of the can really captures the eye! Wish we were wearing flannel in winter, lol! Our weather just stays HOT... and humid! Hope you have a great weekend!

  12. Being a new blogger, I need to check about how all this linky business works! I love the photo of the shadow on your potting bench. ♥

  13. Zucchini....that first one is always wonderful. And the second. The third, too. Here it seems that I go out every morning and discover another zucchini that has grown huge in the night. I'm giving them away to children and neighbours. Soon people will lock their doors and pull down their window blinds when they see me coming.
    Love the photo of John's boots on the ground! Have a great day.

  14. And how great it feels to pull those boots off and wiggle your toes! Enjoy your weekend...both of you! We're having a little summer rain shower right now and it is so pleasant...in contrast to the bright sun and heat! Sweet hugs, Diane

  15. Congratulations on the zucchini … And I enjoyed all your photos. The first one I could reach out and drink I am so thirsty on the 93 degree day!

  16. I love that tool box on the deck in the shadows. Good post Vee. Enjoy the weekend, which promises to be a bit warmer but rainy (at least here).

  17. Yay for the first zucchini! I chuckled at the flannel, my hubby would wear them year round if he could :)

  18. Hi Vee!

    Your photos are always beautiful, and always capture my imagination! I have never heard of that brand of lemonade, it must be an Eastern thing? I love zucchini, and I dare say that I have wayyyyyy toooooo many things on my floor rights now! We have been having a cold spell, so flannel nightgowns are not out of the question for me right now! Fun post!

    Hugs,
    Barb

  19. I could never participate in this because I don't have enough imagination. I look forward to flannel shirts but that's at least 3 or more months away for us. Hope your day was blessed. ~:)

  20. I enjoyed this post. I like seeing your photos. John's flannel shirt had me sweating. Yesterday we had the most amazing July weather - beautiful and today and this weekend it's getting hot and humid! This is not unusual for PA but after yesterday it's not nice!

  21. Oh my, that flannel looks so hot to me. It's just blazing hot here. I don't know how BG stands working outside, but he is on the summer schedule which means they start work at 6 am and he's home at 2:30. Is that TMI? lol! Love your little zucchini pic. It's always fun to see those first ones. I will have to join in Kati's challenge sometime. Looks like fun.

  22. Love your photos. Hope your weekend is a fun filled one. We are in for more rain and lots of humidity. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  23. I've got to get my next several days in the challenge done here soon. Flannel in summer! That's my kind of summer. I've been thinking about soft and like your twist on it. That first photo is great!

  24. #9 - yup, have had a sweater on all day! Whodathunkit!!!
    #14 - John is correct! ;)

  25. You had me at "and a collective sigh of relief was heard in the land."

    I about spewed my drink all over my monitor, Vee. You are so hilarious sometimes lol.

    Have a great weekend!

  26. Love that lemon drink. Drank copious amounts when visiting Italy in the early 90's. I give you credit for doing a 30 day challenge. One day I may attempt it. Have a great weekend.

  27. I have a granddaughter that likes to wear hoodies and sweat pants whatever the temperature....they are her 'comfort clothes'. I'm thinking John might like his favorite flannel shirt whatever the weather as well!

    Don't let that zucchini get away on you. They tend to grow overnight. :) I like your choice of beverage!

  28. I enjoy these peeks into your world!! I think that I will be longing for flannel shirt weather these next few days as we're expecting a heat wave. Eek!

    Yay for your zucchini! (I love zucchini!)

    "On the floor" was a challenge for me. There were a lot of things I didn't want to show. ;)

  29. That little zucchini is a lovely sight. I tried to grow them two years with a harvest of one total squash. That was enough for me. Now they come from the farmer's market.
    John is looking rather calm there. I'm secretly longing for flannel shirt weather.

  30. I'm trying eggplant this year. None yet. That tractor looks like Ken's. : )
    I've worn a jacket this summer!!!

  31. I'm behind on EVERYTHING! What is going on with this month? Where is it rushing to?

  32. Nice job Vee on your photo challenge. As for July and temps, I actually broke out my lightweight winter coat and wore it out last night.

    ReplyDelete
  33. That's exciting about your zucchini! They taste so good! All of your pictures are great! Your picture for "light" is excellent!!

  34. We often have flannel shirt evenings here, Vee! It can really cool down when the sun goes down. I love it! I also love the flavored Sanpelligrino drinks--they are quite refreshing!
