Dog Days of Summer

















We're keeping cool as best we can, Abigail and I enjoy our pool in afternoon, while Kanye digs himself holes in the backyard to nestle into. Silly dog. He loves the spot behind the rosebush underneath our bedroom window. He looks like a different dog than he did last fall when we took him in. He went from 40 pounds to 80, and his heart is just so loving. He loves to be brushed, and scratched, and kissed and hugged. It's as if he's always been here.

The garden is producing like nobody's business. We eat our fill of peppers and zucchini nearly everyday. Now to do something with the beets!

Verne and I are training for a fall marathon. We both got a kick out of the above cartoon a fellow running friend shared. These hot days have been difficult for long runs. I don't want to wish my days away, but I am looking forward to the cooler weather.

July has been productive out of the garden, too. This quilt sat for over a year, and only lacked the binding. After finishing Collin's quilt last Saturday, I decided it was high time to finish this one too. I finished the binding last Tuesday and placed it on the queen-sized air mattress in the spare room. It looks much nicer than having the room sit entirely empty.

Beautiful life!

Is your guest room your old room? I love that room!

Deanna, the guest room is what was Collin's room. The second master bedroom, if you will.
