It's Simply September!

One of my favorite things to do here when the weather cools down ( and we once again have a little peace and quiet by the beach....) I can do from the back window...watch the migration pattern begin. The monarchs have begun that fevered flight back down south, and they are fluttering all over!
Come closer and you can almost here the wings beating...
We always have an abundance of wildlife but the colors begin to look a little more vibrant..
Even Blackie our little feral feline friend,can feel a subtle change in the air!
Doesn't it look as though a meeting has been called to order?

I have been waiting for a cool evening to make these cookies! One of my all time favorite cook books:

My lemon thyme was calling me to make a variation of these crisp thin wafers.........I improvised a little to include the melted drizzled dark chocolate!
Mmmmmmmmmm......you can actually spot the chopped lemon thyme in the cookie!
Now I have to tell you that if you are looking for the calorie content, you need to end your search now.....I have prepared a guilt free treat here and will not reveal it...however by looking at the recipe, you can pretty much guess that it will be a little on the high end ;o)

....and NOOOOO, neither G-dog nor the Beckaroo are getting any of these.....even without the chocolate!!!!!

    We agree: the weather has been incredible!

    We had our first rain in 20 or so days on Sunday - the birds were SOOO happy - you could see it as they gathered in the yard!

    The sedum is attracting all sorts of wonderful flying creatures too!

  2. We are feeling Fall here too and l love the fall. I am waiting for leaves to turn and fall so I can play in them.
    The cookies look good and Becky maybe you can sneak a slither of them LOL
