Update for Summer

I haven't blogged for awhile. A lot going on around here considering we live a very low key lifestyle.

We had our puppy, Sassy, spayed June 8th, and she did not do well with the procedure. We spent a lot of time day and night nursing her through it all. It was days before she would walk, or eat well. She is finally ---two weeks later---recovering.


We had a wonderful visit from our granddaughter Holly, who we don't see often enough. Our grandaughter Amanda, who lives close by is spending part of her summer vacation with us. We are doing some gardening, and reading out under the cool shade of trees in the back yard. Summer has been in full swing here with 90 degree temps most days. But, hey---we are not complaining as it has been a cold wet Spring up until this past week. Welcome! Summer!

Here are some results of that overabundance of rain.
Our favorite reading spot. The lawn has never been so green!

I'm sitting and quilting on "Patriots Dream". It's slow going--as compared to the long arm. But, I wanted to do a lot of straight line quilting in very small areas, and this is still the best way to machine quilt on smaller projects for me.

Hoping you are enjoying your Summer-time!

Glad to hear Sassy is recovering! Your yard looks lovely. Here it's in the 90s, muggy and very dry. To say nothing of the smoke and bad air quality. I think I'll hibernate this summer. ;-)

Hope your puppy is doing much better now. Your summer sounds busy, but fun. I think from looking at the beautiful pictures that you must live in a park.

Angie, I want to come to your house and sit in your backyard......it is so lovely with the grass, trees and the beautiful flowers!! Looks like paradise. Hugs, Sarah
