I'm sitting on my porch looking outside at the sky and it looks like it is going to rain AGAIN.
It's rained every single day
for a week this summer.
ok, not every day ... but it sure feels like it.
It's rained so much that there are warnings to boaters and swimmers to stay out of the Chesapeake bay due to the amount of debris and funk that is in the water.
So, I've been trying to keep busy with inside activities for most of the week.
I did however, enjoy two daughter dates this week..
the first was a breakfast date with Sally,
and the next was a shopping trip with Michelle.
I'll show you what I bought at the end of this post.
Paul has been working extra days, august will be a busy month for him but with having some home repairs and other expenses coming up.. the overtime will come in handy.
Here are a few things that have been happening around the house this week.
I started and finished Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects.
She is a great story teller...
but she sure does write some dark and creepy books.
We ended Shark week with a shark pizza.
Someone shared the instructions with me on Facebook and I had to make one. It was simple.
Since shark week is over, it was time to reset the table.
I went for a sunflower theme.
Aren't they pretty.
I cheated and bought some fake ones.
August 1st made 1 year since my little Darla passed.
That morning I read Charlotte the book about her big sister.
She seemed very into it.
Do you see that big boy sleeping in the background?
He has been having trouble walking for some time now.
We've had him back and forth to the vets. Recently, to rule out hip dysplasia, they took x-rays of his hips and legs. Thankfully he does not have any dysplasia but it does appear that he has a torn ACL in his right knee that will require surgery.
We've been trying to keep in comfortable until his visit with the orthopedic surgeon.
Hopefully, we will find out more details and get him fixed up very soon.
Outside of the house, although I hate it, the rain has done wonders for the surprise pumpkin plants that popped up in the garden this year.
They have crawled into my little flower garden and now are taking over everything.
Speaking of Pumpkins..
I found these adorable pumpkin jars while shopping with Michelle.
They almost match the dutch oven perfectly.
I also found this little guy.
How adorable is he!!
It was difficult, but I tucked the new fall things away in the cabinet.
I've given myself a Fall decorating date...
September 15th it's coming out!!!!
I hope that you all are well and enjoying the start of August.
I can't wait to check in and see what you've all been up to.
See you soon!!
