off-topic Good Mornin' Thread - For those that get up really early and post

Bike ride this morning. We are going to get a puppy this afternoon. Female lab/catahoula mix. Homer our treeing walker will be very happy with his little sister. Rest of the day will be a couple chores and playing with puppy. Be safe and good morning.
 
The three hour time change between Phoenix and Cincinnati is a bit much. So is TSA with a 5 year old and a 1 year old. Yesterday was exhausting. Not I’m laying in bed thinking I should be up, but it’s too early. I hope my neighbor is taking good care of my peppers.
 
Good morning. So Sic’s getting a new puppy 😊. Nice to have a companion for your other dog. Garden chores and maybe pickles or jam today. It looks like a quiet day ahead. Have a wonderful day and stay healthy. Enjoy the vacations with lots of pics.
 
Loading up and headed to the Grand Canyon for a nice day of hiking the southern rim. The sights from Phoenix band Sedona has been absolutely breath taking. Hope everyone else is have a good time.

Good morning. Thanks for the pics, lanruth, more beauty to see in the West. Garden chores and canning - it’s a broken record these days. Prayers for everyone affected by hurricane Ida. Have a wonderful day and stay healthy.
 
Puppy is doing good, she is so tiny. Glad we got her as the lady that had them was not really that impressive to me. I felt like she was a nasty human. Could be wrong? Bike ride with a buddy then going to work a few houes at a big clean up job we are doing. Its going to be about 30 hours of work as we have free time to do it. Its 6 duplex i mow and the common grounds havent been took care of in years. We put in 5 hours yesterday and the renters are already all giddy. 1630403599651.png

Well…. About to follow Route 66 to Albuquerque. The card about packed up. The kids are, well, a pain in my ass. And my wife is on a roll about how she hasn’t slept and is going to nap in the car. I’m sure everyone will. Maybe even myself. Hahahaha. Here is a few pictures from yesterday.

Good morning. Sic - what a cute puppy. She realty is small, but just wait a few months. Name? We have a couple more days of high heat, then September weather, I hope. More jam in today’s plans, lots more yard work when it gets cooler. Time to water at the CG and pick more harvest. Last year I was picking green tomatoes before the snow on Sept. 8.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the beauty of the earth.
 
Gracie is what we are calling her at the moment, AKA Gravy Train. We tend to have several names for our pets. Got several errands/chores today. Not positive what all is going on? Might end up at the shop this afternoon? Homer is still being a dick to the puppy, he better chill as this dog will be way smarter and tougher than he is. Yall be good have a terrific day and good morning.
 
We had a fun drive yesterday from the Grand Canyon to Albuquerque. We stopped at the painted desert so the kids could stretch their legs. Now we are going to explore Santa Fe and I’m going to eat something with some hatch chilies. Tis the season, after all. Last night I sampled some of the local cuisine here and tried some beer from Santa Fe brewing. Tomorrow we make the trip up to Denver. I really have no idea what we will do there. Garden of the Gods. A museum. But besides that….. I guess I’ll find out. Hope the puppy isn’t being a handful. And wish I could get my hands on some of that jam.

Good morning. Cooler temps and hopefully some rain soon will drive the smoky air away. Denver - so much to see, especially traffic jams lately. Garden of the Gods is well worth a stop in CO Springs, Red Rocks amphitheater west of Denver, lots of museums.
I have lots of garden chores left, plus canning. Lanruth - let me know where you’ll be while in Denver and we could meet for jam.
Have a wonderful day and stay healthy.
 
Good morning. Finally we had a touch of rain and cooler temps, hoping for more rain today. I’ve been fighting a losing battle with the weeds, time to find another solution. Maybe next year. Hugs to Gracie, Sic. Have a wonderful day.
 
Weeds are the worse! Headed out to mow in a bit. $ stops and end up at the neighbours picking up sticks. The indoor/outdoor cat is finally getting over himself and introducing to the puppy. She hasnt seen the outdoor cats yet, she will be in a world of hurt once she does,lol. Be safe enjoy your day and good morning.
 
Good morning. The smoky air has gone for a few days, nice to breathe fresh air again. CG chores and grocery shopping, maybe some jam if I feel up to it. Son, DIL, dogs here last night to harvest a few things. Now I know why I love gardening. Have a wonderful day and stay healthy.
 
Got rained out yesterday so two jobs after a bike ride this morning. Puppy is gaining lots of confidence, starting to be a little terror, lol. Just chilling this evening with the wife. Be good and have a great day. Good morning.
 
Good morning. A bit chilly this AM, south of us had heavy rain and hail. We were lucky to have light showers. Tomatoes ripening faster than I can keep up. A friend wants help making applesauce - maybe next week. Canning tomatoes are on the docket, too. It should be a real Labor Day weekend. Enjoy your holiday weekend and stay safe.
 
No chill here, hot and humid. Like sauna humid. Bike ride then chilling for the most part. Truck and trailer is loaded with branches and logs I have to un load. Might mow one of the small pastures? Have a great day and good morning.
