During the week Chuck and I are up at 5:00 a.m. to be out the door by 5:30 a.m. to get a walk in before Chuck goes to work. We do this mid -April to usually mid- October. I don't like walking in the heat and by the time Chuck gets home at 4:00 p.m. it can be quite warm.
On the weekends we TRY to sleep until 6:00 a.m. and go for a walk then. This time of year it is dark at 5:30 a.m. so we really enjoy walking in the daylight on the weekends.
I love hitting the road early in the morning too. Not as much traffic and places are not too busy yet.
Smokey is at the deck door waiting for his breakfast most mornings at 5:00 a.m.
Great little farm (and farmstand!) with a gravel pit in the background.
Clouds over Lake Ontario.
The clouds left over from the hurricane made their way up here along with a storm. Boy oh boy did we get rain! One and a half inches of much needed rain (never thought I would say that this year after our very wet Spring!) and quite a thunder and lightening storm.
Janice and I were chatting early one morning and Miss Kitty joined us. Janice took this with her phone.
The Magnolias are set to bloom.
We are fortunate to have great views of the sky in our little town. I think our tallest building is three stories high.
This gladiola is from a beautiful garden at one of the Bed and Breakfast's in town. The house is over 100 years old and lovely too. I must get a photo to show you.
I am really enjoying this cooler weather. I find I have so much more energy. I know some of you are still having stifling heat. I hope you get some relief soon!
