Welcome to my lazy Sunday.

Since I'm just taking it easy at home and recuperating from a weekend class I finished last night, I thought I might make a blog post that reflects my current mood. So I'm just going to include some random photos and tell you about them! Who needs a theme when you're having a lazy Sunday?

I've been spending plenty of quality time with this little man today. He has a good life, can you tell?



I also got to take my sweet time getting the day started. I even watered the flowers in my pajamas (keep in mind this took place on a balcony camouflaged by trees, so nobody could see me). I told you about a miniature rose bush that my dad gave me in this post, but what I didn't tell you is that he actually gave me two of them; one yellow and one pink. I transplanted them to a single pot, and they grew so closely side-by-side that they look like one plant. That is, until both sides start blooming and you see that there are both pink AND yellow roses.



I've shown you the yellow ones up-close before, so here are a few photos of my little pink rose that's blooming right now. These were taken when it had just opened up.





And on the topic of balconies, this photo was taken from the balcony of my old apartment last fall. I guess the leasing agents can tell by looking at me that I'm a total tree-hugger, because both of the apartments I've lived in have had huge, beautiful tree limbs growing right up to the rail of my balcony. I loved the way the tree at my old place looked when the leaves were changing.



I was just realizing that my new place has even MORE trees, and this will be my first fall to spend here. I can't wait to see what the view will be like! Who else is excited for fall?

One last thing: I have my labels all nice and organized now. So if you enjoy pictures of my flowers, or my cats, or crafty things, or my "pet" squirrels, it will now be easier to find the topic you're looking for. The list of topics can be found over -------> here on my sidebar. Have a lovely Sunday, my friends!

Gorgeous roses! A lazy sunday sounds good to me :) Looks like you will have an excellent view in autumn.

Kitties and Roses!

My roses seem to be done blooming already, shame, I miss them. Good while it lasted I suppose.

Such a cute kitty : ) I love lazy weekends. I had one, and I am feeling refreshed. How about you?

Holy crap I love your kitty's face! Sooooo squishable! I'm also stoked about fall. The weather, my birthday, school back in session and long sleeve shirts :)

Those are amazing photos!

I so need to organize the labels on my blog but it is just one of those things that I am dreading doing because I know it will take forever! :)

Lovely photos! And I love that you have so many trees around you, it will be fun to watch things change this year for sure!

I can't say I'm ready for summer to be over quite yet, but I'm super excited for fall though. I think Fall and Spring are my two favorite seasons anymore, because I love watching the change and growth of the nature around us... but I love all the holidays too. What am I saying?! I love all the seasons, I guess! :D

Anyways, your cat is super cute, and I bet he's great for cuddling... Glad you had a good Sunday.

That kitty pic is so cute! It is definately a pic worthy of cuteoverload.com, you should submit it!
I like the idea of planting the two rose bushes together...I saw a rose bush the other day with two different coloured roses on it, and thought it was an some sort of special species, but now that I have seen this I think it may have been two planted together lol!

The flowers and that tree are gorgeous!!!

If you get a chance come by my Blog for a visit and say hi. I have put up quite a few new posts and will be putting more up this week from the San Francisco International Gift Fair where my Pillow Collection was featured and Romantic Homes who has featured my Pillows in their beautiful magazine.

Have a great week,
Aimee

Me! Me! I am excited for autumn! ah then again you always have the best view from around the corner, lucky you! Well the kitty looks so fulfilled... I guess it's not being excited for anything than a nap.

I know, I really love Gouda, I think baby G loves them too, but she's still a baby, I hope her preference will change..

Audrey said...

Beautiful Pictures!! The roses are lovely. I think fall is my favorite season, all the colors are wonderful!!

In regards to the teaching question, they are all different levels. Makes for an interesting semester! And they are all different types of classes. As of now, I'll probably be teaching Intermediate Reading, Grammar, Speaking for College (like how to give presentations) and then Literacy A which is beginning beginning. They are all vastly different and quite enjoyable in my book! :)

Omg, those autumn leaves are so beautiful!

Sadly, we do not get to see these beautiful sights here in Singapore but from all the pretty photos I've came across, I love Summer and Fall. Hmm.. but I love Christmas time too! I guess all 4 seasons bring you into different moods. I should love them all (since I don't get any here).
