The Week In Seven Photos

A new holiday tradition was added this year and the birdseed eating contest was a complete success with little chipper taking first place.

Of course, the high heat and humidity meant some had to watch from a distance in the shade

while others acted a little too superior to partake in the fun, even though they’re known for gobbling up the birdseed.

This little robin was crying for mom while I might have had a few tears over the dew point hitting 70, but

there was a some relief on the water with an oldย “New Coke” beverage from the ’80s. ย My Mtn Dew habit began in the ’80s, so I missed out on the “New Coke” experiment back then.

After binge watching Stranger Things, I’m slowly emerging from the upside down world

and while I was gone, Harper grew up a little bit with the ability to now jump on the furniture and go down the stairs and, of course, continue to ignore me when she’s in the mood.

  1. Looks like you had an awesome week! Great series!


  2. The picture of the water lily is a stunner, and Harper is as adorable as ever. Did you watch the whole season of “Stranger Things”? We watched two episodes and look forward to seeing more.

    Always a pleasure to see your week in review, ACI, and summertime is filled with beautiful images. The clarity in the blue jay is terrific, the lily pads are gorgeous. I’m glad you’re out and about on your kayak, a true joy of summer.

    What a collection! A tie between little chipper and Harper…
    I was going to start S3 of Stranger Things on the plane ride out, but got distracted by Creed 2 and The Mule, and they were pretty good distractions on a long and boring flight.
    I hope you have a great weekend, without too much humidity and with Harper acting less like a teenager!

    1. Thank you!๐Ÿ™‚ Thankfully this weekend I have the Tour de France and World Cup Final to watch (unless I watch Stranger Things 3 again!!๐Ÿ˜) and, maybe one of those movies, as I continue to hide in the house today due to the awful humidity. Harper loves to jump and now I have to worry sheโ€™s going to fly off the couch along with the other dozen things she makes me worry about every day. Looking forward to a few pub photos and have a great trip!๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ™‚
