  1. We were being driven to JFK from Bushwick when that storm hit...once we boarded the plane, we sat on the tarmac for nearly two hours because the weather had supposedly delayed the loading of the baggage! That meant almost 8 hours in a Jet Blue seat and arrival at our Portland motel after 2 a.m. :-)

  2. What a fantastic day! Glad you were able to be out and about. I too am working today -- but, of course, I work most days. Yay Toonman for taking on breakfast duty.

  3. Good for you--happy you had a great weekend. Hope you also have a great week!! Annie looks like a beautiful little soul.

  4. It looks so lovely and sunny!

  5. That's a very thoughtful husband you have ! He needs to be given lots of appreciation.

  7. These are great shots! Annie is stylin' for sure!

  8. Great weather conditions! Annie and Stella are both cuties!

  9. This morning I thought, "wait a minute, I haven't had my fill of weekend blather!" Oh lovely days! It must have been fantastic soaking up the last of the summer sunshine by the river. River? Stella is so cute. She reminds me of a wire haired fox terrier, although she's probably not, but I'm in love with them because of my grandma who used to keep fox terriers and Poirot: Dumb Witness and of course Asta, from the Thin Man. I can;t believe Annie didn't squirm and spit and wriggle out of that scarf. Every time I ever tried that with my cats they wouldn't have it. But she does look super stylish. :D Oh, and husband is such a keeper! X
