Some thoughts I've stolen from others and have been passing off as my own:

"Embrace your inner weird!"

"There's a skinny lady inside me, screaming to get out----I keep her sedated with chocolate!" 

"I'd give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!"

 So I've been a busy little homemaker...
... a picnic basket all packed up with shade loving plants!!
See the enamalware soap dish on the wall?  We got it in Missouri in a great little town called "Greenwood"...Love it!

 I finished the second in the Andes series, this one is called "The Peace de La Paz".  Translated that is "the peace of the peace".  Doc's hometown is La Paz, Bolivia.  This is my tribute to that city and to mount Illimani (the blue mountain behind the city).
This little guy lives right by my favorite outside seat!

Doc does enjoy a siesta!!!
I'm using this old fence as a climbing cage for my cukes!!  We adopted it last weekend along with the piece on table below.
A treasure found on our Memorial Day jaunt!!
I snapped this wheatfield through the car window
as we whizzed by at 65 mph!

Last night we went to the Rodeo!
Small town rodeos are standard fare around here.  We love them and try to go to as many as possible!!


It was hot...98 degrees at 6:30! 
I love this little guys boots!!
...all my little guys wore their boots last night, also!

So, other than trying to teach the pups some manners regarding how to greet guests, that just about sums up the last couple of days!  (The pups and I are exhausted from our new "Manners Program"!)

Tomorrow is supposed to be cooler...we'll see!!  

Here is some of my inner weird....sometimes when I see the countryside on a hot summer evening...I just want to cry...I don't know why...just part of the inner weird that I am learning to embrace!

    I like the colors of the wheat field. Beautiful. And your new header. Very nice.

    Sounds like you are enjoying spring. Phew In the 90's already? I am reminding myself, Summer is but for a season. Winter will be on its way again.

  12. What a fun way to spend the evening!! I love the photo of the wheatfield. I think there is so much beauty in Kansas.
