I’ve been trying to hold out until the official first day of autumn to put anything fallish up, but it’s close enough now, I think. 🙂 It’s hard to believe September is 2/3 over when it seems like it just got here. Here are some favorites from the last official week of summer.

1. A hummingbird’s visit. I don’t have a hummingbird feeder, but maybe I should get one – a little hummingbird was fluttering outside my kitchen window the other day.

2. Jesse’s birthday was Monday. Always fun to celebrate a family member and to have everyone here.


3. Lemon cake. Lemon isn’t one of my favorite flavors – I gravitate to chocolate – but Jesse has requested a lemon cake for his last few birthdays, and now I look forward to it that one time each year. I think it’s the glaze that makes it.

4. Take-out dinners. We can’t just go out to eat anymore, with Jim’s Mom here, but I had a hankering for Red Lobster’s popcorn shrimp recently, and Jim indulged me by bringing some home after work one night. Then he had a hankering for Asian food, and Jason and Mittu brought some over from a place near where they live.

5. An easy-going husband who is content with soup and sandwich on a night when I discover right at time to make dinner that I don’t have the chicken I was planning on using. I had thought there was a package near the back of the freezer – but there wasn’t!


I just got some photos from the phone and camera onto the computer this morning. This is one of my favorites, taken on my birthday.

  1. hummingbirds, we have 2 different feeders and we have to refill them often. Feed them and they will come! 🙂 I have had dinner nights like that too and yes, it is a blessing to have an understanding hubby. What a sweet picture of you and your son!

  2. That is a very sweet picture from your birthday. I’m sure you’ll treasure it always.

    Lemon cake ALWAYS sounds good to me. (Even though chocolate is usually my favorite.) Lemon is a frequent pick.

  3. Sweet picture! And lemon cake sounds lovely. I vote for takeout, too! Have a great week ahead!

  4. I love take out but we tend to get Indian food rather than seafood…yummy! That is such a sweet photo of you and your son…….a real blessing for sure. I’m not a cake fan but I LOVE lemon blueberry muffins and I’m actually baking some this weekend!! Enjoy your weekend…….

  5. Sweet image of you and your son. Good memories.

    So nice that your family is able to accommodate for your stay-at-home circumstances with easy meals and bring-in meals. It’s a stage of life some of my friends are in, too.

  6. What a sweet photo of you and Jesse 🙂 That makes the heart of any mom happy.

    It is wonderful to have an easy going hubby when it comes to meal making — mine is too.

    Happy Birthday to your boy!

  7. Look how happy Jesse is! Indeed it’s true that a smile or laughter is contagious. I’m smiling in my seat right now after seeing Jesse with his cake. And what a lovely photo taken on your birthday. The hummingbird visit is wonderful. I love it when a bird visits my porch.


  8. Nice to find a great pic you forgot about when you go through the camera! Happy birthday to Jesse, I’m with him, lemon all the way! :v)

    We do take out sometimes when we don’t want to cook. It’s a bit more inexpensive that way and we still get what we’re wanting to eat in a restaurant.
