Summer in pictures


It's been a hot and busy summer...


of baking...


growing a pot of peppers, tomatoes and basil...


surprises that popped up...




wildlife...




working on the potting shed...






and on the porch.


Of dogs acting goofy...


or napping...


or posing...


And when it's too hot we're working on this house too.


Details soon ;)

I hope you're enjoying your summer and if you're not, remember that autumn is right around the corner :)

  3. Cutie~patootie dogs, you have there! Full of personality, I can see.
    Looks like you've not been letting any moss grow on your feet; keeping busier than a one legged man in a bum kickin' contest!!

    Thanks for the update. Glad to see you!

  6. Very intrigued with the dollhouse! It looks like you are having a very busy summer in spite of the heat. It sounds like you are doing well and are happy. And that is most important.

  8. So glad to see a post from you and glad you caught us up on what you've been up to in your neck of the woods! It's been a hot summer here as well, and will remain so for months yet here. It's ok---I'm enjoying this summer very much and find ways to avoid the heat of the day. I just love your floor, is that in the kitchen i think I remember? Your doggies are so cute and how neat that sunflower just popped up and grew!!

  9. Ready for this heat to be done, and the cooler Autumn to arrive.

  10. Hi Rue! Yes, it's been a whirlwind and busy summer....for me with my grand, home home improvement projects that are taking forever to finish, and going back to work full time. Also just got back from Alasaka cruise....with perfect weather....came home to miserably hot and humid yucky weather here.

    Still not able to figure out my new pc and so I haven't been blogging. One of these days when my husband's home I need some help - none of my pics I am trying to transfer over are working like they used to. I am at a loss until then.

    Big hugs. Stay cool and happy and give your sweet poochies some pets from me. They're so precious.

  11. Oh, I love your kitchen. It's spectacular. I want to do something like that with mine. It's from the twenties, and I'd like to keep the feel, but fix the cabinets and drawers. You have such excellent taste. Looks like you are very busy and working hard on your lovely home. Thanks for sharing.

  13. So good to see this post from you! I've missed you and you crossed my mind the last day or two and I wondered how you were doing. Now I know, you've been busy with life.

  17. Hi Rue,
    Love to see you pop up in my email tonight with a new post. Love how your summer is going. Looks like lots of fun, good food and neat projects along with your fur baby crew in tow to help. Always love to see that original farmhouse sink and faucet. Swooning over that!
    xoxo

  18. Hi! Dogs look happy and that's what counts;). Miserable down here and I'm sure hot there too. Hope the monsoon rains didn't mess up the backyard. Busy with your projects and I love the sunflower and the krispie treat:).

    1. I hope you've been enjoying the cooler weather down there. My mom and I were actually able to sit outside when I was down there a couple of weeks ago.

  19. Nice to see you Rue. Sounds like a good summer, lots of projects going on there. But the dogs look relaxed! That dessert looks yummy!

  20. Hi Rue, I’m glad to hear from you! I was just looking at your blog a week ago wondering if I’d missed some posts. It’s been horribly hot everywhere and the Holy Fire is right down the road from us. I too can’t wait for autumn!

  21. Very happy to hear from you....love your kitchen sink! You have been missed, enjoyed your pictures so much! Enjoying summer here mostly early mornings & late evenings...can't really say we enjoy the sizzling days.

  22. I was just thinking about you this past week and thinking I should send you and email to see how you were doing. I'm seriously unorganized so it hadn't made it past the thinking part yet so I'm glad to see your post. Looks like you are having a busy summer. Ours goes between flying by and dragging at the same time - the hot and dry seems to never end, but school starts here next week. (not that I have a dog in that fight - just changes the traffic patterns)

    Enjoy the rest of your summer!

  23. I love surprises that pop up, like volunteer sunflowers and a surprise post from Rue!

    You really should not make us go so long without pictures of the home we love so much, but it certainly does make us appreciate you so much when you're here again. Just seeing that you are working on the potting shed though makes me understand that you both have been busy with a wonderful project. I can't wait to see it when you get through with it. What a great building right in your back yard! Has it been used up to now as just a storage place for garden things? And that classy much smaller building in your last photo must be so much fun to work on--or is it all play?

    So nice to visit you here, dear Rue,
    Dewena

  27. A busy summer you are having for sure. Potting shed is such a nice thing to have, wished I had one. That doll house is wonderful! The detail in the windows look like they can be raised and lowered. I cannot wait to see this when it is finished. Better yet, watching your progress as you go along would be a good to see. Love it!

  36. Hey, Rue....I lost you for awhile but found you again today....my life has changed since I lost Mr. Sweet last summer...I pretty much quit living for an entire year after his death...I am doing better..at least breathing again.
    Summer has flown by and I am not ready to give it up...here in West Texas, we are still having temps in the 90's....not near ready to bring out my fall stuff.
    Looks like ya'll have been busy...hope things are good in your life...xo

Thank you so much for leaving a comment. It means so much to me that you took the time and I read each and every one. If you don't have a blog, look for a response under your comment. I try to get to them within a few days :)

For some reason, the comment box doesn't always show up, so if you want to leave a comment, replying to someone else's comment seems to work. Also, I've had to switch from safari to chrome in order to comment on blogger, so that might be the issue. If not, you can always reach me via email, located on my side bar. Thank you!
