Dog Gone Good Contest: Vote for the Top Dog

Holy tail waggers, Batman! Picking the top five was tough! Really tough! (Seriously really tough.)

Many thanks to each and every one of you that sent me a picture of a pup you love. I never thought I would receive over 20 entries. I was amazed with the response. After my amazement, I was cranky, because I had to narrow it down to five. (Who had that bright idea, huh?) Continue reading

Project 366: Day 197

Yesterday was ‘mow the lawn day’. Because we’ve enjoyed rain every day for the past several days, I hoped assumed ‘mow the lawn day’ would be a washout.

I swore I felt a drop or two of rain, but what fell was not enough to cancel my mowing day. When I looked up, I noticed a bright white cloud separated from a dark gray cloud by a crisp blue sky. The contrast was beautiful, but I don’t believe this picture does it justice.

I hope you have a wonderful day, and I hope you make time to rest and look up!

Project 366: Day 195

Soon, Rob, the boys, and I will load up a car and head North for Amherst Shore, Nova Scotia. Amherst Shore is a place my Mom’s family has visited annually for over 100 years. Seriously.

As a child spending my summers at Amherst Shore, I remember eating meals on brightly colored plates and in brightly colored bowls. When I moved out on my own and had to invest in my own plates, bowls, etc., I bought a small set of the same stuff we used at the Shore. And when Rob and I were married, I seized the opportunity to register for more of the colorful collection.

Every time I use our plates, bowls, etc., I am taken back to the summers of my youth. Long live Fiesta-ware, and long live Amherst Shore!
