Sign of the Times.....

The days of Summer continue, but we've been given reminders of the changing seasons. These are trademarks of the place where I live. Last year very few acorns fell, which also meant a lot of wildlife went hungry through the long winter.

It's been a great weekend. I tackled laundry, errands, and an entire housecleaning for today... Today I spent going to church and playing. The garden is full of vegetables. Despite lack of rain-- I was religious about keeping it watered. Now, I'm reaping the benefits: cucumbers, beans, tomatoes.
The novelty of the new pup will wear off I promise, but Ripley will be little for such a short time. At 22 pounds, Bruno and he have become best friends. You have to remember Bruno was originally Chelsey's pup....he's like her in so many ways....Don't mess with him when he's first gets up or when he's ready for bed at night...

But Ripley is pretty forgiving--- despite getting nipped at, he continues to come back for more. Lessons maybe we could all learn from a pup..... The clock is ticking--- enjoy the rest of the weekend....

What a darling picture...we just commented today about the zillions of acorns on the oak trees in our yard...I wonder what that means...my dad always said it was a sign of a hard winter. I guess we're due since last winter was sooooooooo mild.

What a sweet picture of the pups - they look pretty cozy and I'm glad they are enjoying each other and getting along. Last night we had friends out to the lake and everyone was thrilled to be able to put on a sweatshirt - YAHOOOO I say - a little sign like your picture of things to come and I'm ready. Enjoy your day :)

Your quilt looks like it's coming along nicely. Love the blue in those blocks and I'm not a totally blue gal.

Yep, I think this year will be a harder winter since we didn't have much of one last year. I hope so...the hubby loves to plow :)

Your pups are so cute. I'm on the hunt for one for us.

New puppy pics never grow old . . . not even when they are grown and not such puppies anymore *s*

They are so adorable together! Buddies! It is good for them to have each other. I hope you are healing.

We have leaves coming down here as well but I'm sticking with the reason being that it's been so hot ;)
