Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 255

Indian Summer

It’s hot, folks, and the Daisy Dukes are still a-rockin’ in Howard County!

Today was one of those days for enjoying the great outdoors – it’s ‘unseasonably warm’ everyone tells me – and can change in an instant. So, since I am not one to pooh-pooh the sunshine, I took a marvellously pleasant stroll in one of my favourite areas – Lake Elkhorn.

It really does not feel like summer has left just yet, even with the trees taking a turn to the red-side of Fall. They look beautiful.

So, whilst I hear it is grey and miserable in the UK, I share these images with you to enjoy…. ๐Ÿ™‚

This man was sketching the gorgeous scenery. I left him my UKDesperateHousewwifeUSA card so he can see himself on the blog! ;)

Not bad for a man-made lake!

After my stroll I luncheoned, as one feels entitled to do on a ‘day off’, and whilst luncheoning (is that a word?), I received this tweet on Twitter from a local follower…. ‘Iโ€™m walking today at Lake Elkhorn and say to myself โ€œshe looks kinda like ukhousewifeusaโ€. Howโ€™s it feel to be a celebrity?’

I’m glad there are folk out there who enjoy my blog! (And, like I tweeted, do say ‘hello’ next time! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
