T Tuesday: end of gardening season edition

Over the weekend we had the last of the super hot and humid days. People who aren’t from Minnesota think that we couldn’t possibly have tropical dew points like our far southern states…well they are wrong. I’m assuming its due to all the lakes..the sheer amount of water around. I could be totally wrong but that’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.

As some cloud cover rolled in I decided it was time to pull up the garden or perhaps I should say what was left of it after the critters had chewed their way through it. I didn’t bother taking any after photos as it’s pretty much just dirt and some fallen leaves now.

Over the weekend while enjoying the comfort of the air conditioning we watched or I should say re-watched a couple movies. Some laid back family time was definitely in order.

I actually did a bit of sewing over the weekend too but was totally unhappy with the results. I wanted to make a little pouch to hold my hand-sanitizer that would attach to my lanyard. I’ve already gotten one cold from all the germs. Anyway…I didn’t love my result so Mini-me found a store bought one in her room for me to use. Perfect.

Slowly I am finding time for more things in life. I think I just had to get over my old way of thinking and re-prioritize.

I’ve been thinking about trying some new things with my blog…stay tuned!

What are you doing today?

    Hi, we have been really hot and humid here too-still are with a cool down promised end of week. family time is good-and important too.
    Happy T Day Kathy

  2. I’m ready for those cooler temps the weather people have been promising for days. I saw some place back east (maybe Cincinnati or Cleveland) canceled school due to the heat.

    Too bad about your garden this year. I saw some little yellow flowers on one tomato plant, I thought.

    Glad you are finally settling into your new responsibilities. And sharing down time with the family makes it even more precious.

    I look forward to what you have planned for your blog. I think it looks pretty good, actually.

    Thanks for sharing your weekend and your water with us for T this Tuesday.

  4. We had that weather too-in fact we still have it. I want it to cool off and be more fall like. Humidity-ugh. Glad you had a nice weekend. Sounds relaxing with the movies and the AC. happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  5. We are enjoying some hot and humid weather here in New England. The last hurrah for Summer. I’m not complaining. Winter will be here soon enough. One thing about hot and humid, you don’t have to shovel. Have a Happy T Day!

  7. The temperatures seem to have dropped here, we have had sunny days and it now feels like autumn 😁. Glad you got your gardening done, thanks for the reminder as I must get things cleared out too. Enjoy the sunshine and wishing you a very Happy T Day! J 😊

  8. Reevaluating life now and then is important i think…. nothing stays the same … life is constantly changing… I do my best to go with the flow… lol We’ve been hot and humid here too… But that should come to an end today… pretty please….. Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  9. Born & raised in Wisconsin, I know that Minnesota’s state nickname is “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” Halle. I fondly remember the rich creamy butter as well as the lakes of my home state. Beautiful country but with some seasonal challenges. You brought back some nice memories. I enjoyed seeing your garden grow this past summer.

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen
