In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Abandoned.”

Hello to the blogosphere! Hope readers weren’t feeling abandoned as this has been a busy summer of kitchen renovations.

Finally, as August is drawing to a close, the kitchen is nearing completion with one exception, hopefully, to be remedied soon.

Looked through some photos for this weekly theme. A young red cardinal caught my eye. Was this one abandoned?

Learning to fly?

Enjoy these lingering days of summer!

  1. I’ve noticed that you’ve been busy…it is a busy time and I can relate in the renovations dept. we”re still in the process with a bathroom. Ugh. What a great image and happy remainder of the summer to you, Patricia! 🙂


    1. Right you are, Hannah! It has been busy in a pre-occupied mind kind of way. Awkward wording there, I see, however the kitchen reno planning and installation seemed to take over things so I rarely wrote in the usual way. Sadly, also, our 15 year old pup needed some extra care as his health declined. The first week of August, he especially faded in energy and appetite. He passed on August 7. It has been a sad, strange time of adjustment for all of us. Hope your summer is going well & will be a change for you as school starts again. Summer flew by! 🙂
