It may seem a bit early but as soon as August appears on the calendar, prim pumpkins pop up all over blogland. Everyone is longing for cooler temps. and the soft breezes of Fall.
I personally enjoy summer for all the vitality it brings - as you know Northern Ireland is much cooler and there's always plenty of showers which is why it's so green or as is more often the case, a muddy brown...
I'm glad to say that today has been sunny and warm and I enjoyed time outdoors with a lovely ice cream. We call them a '99 poke'. It's a funny term and I think it comes from the nickname we give to the shape of the cone and putting a chocolate Flake on top is making it a 99 - I've no idea why!!! So if you ever come to visit and call in for an ice cream cone you'll know what a 99 is and if someone asks you 'Would you like a poke?' you'll know that they're not being rude at all...
But I digress. As I was in the garden look who I found sitting sunning himself!! He's pretty pleased with himself carrying a prim pumpkin too!
I brought him inside to cool down! He is a cool customer and was a fun make from pattern I adapted by 'My Raggedy Kids'
I just wanted to give a shout out to a new blogging friend I met just last week. I have had so much fun and blessing reading Heather's blog, The Country Schoolmarm, and it seems we have a fair bit in common aside from loving prims. I know you'll all enjoy her witty posts and thoughtful spiritual insights so hop on over now and say 'Hi'!
Thanks to to everyone for their good wishes on our anniversary - we had a great evening out and good food.
I so enjoy hearing from you all too - thanks so much for calling in for a visit!
