Passing time in the lanai
I love the collage look of this photo I took at Eric's house last summer. I'm hoping to get down to Westby again soon to see him and the town and the countryside and the Amish and... It is a beautiful part of Wisconsin!

This week is VBS at our church. I don't know why craft ideas seemed like such a struggle this year. Hopefully we've come up with some things the kids and their parents will enjoy.
Misty is now blind, and although I try very hard not to step on her (as she's lying right at my feet at almost all times day or night) it's not easy! I have tripped over her a few times, and she has run into me more than once in her frantic effort to stay within 2 square feet of wherever I am.
You can see how easy it is to cook dinner.
And no kidding, most of the time I try to stand in that little triangle of space, rather than making her move. Drives Kevin crazy!
The weeds in the garden have reared their ugly heads. I don't know why I thought it should be any different from any other year. My strawberry plants are gorgeous, although the berries had something seriously wrong with them. Maybe they got too much rain. At the stem end they're great, but they seem stunted beyond that, with a ton of seeds at the bottom. Very odd berries. To make matters worse, although I put a net over the tops of the rows to protect them from the robins, many of the berries have little bite marks at the bottom. Someone out there likes those seeds. Are all the mice on the farm having a strawberry feast at night?? It must be Murphy's Law of Gardening: There's something out there to kill anything you may want to plant.
Okay, these few berries are the exception, I realize.
I watched 'Babe' last night for the first time. It was Mary's mention of the movie that inspired me. What a sweet movie! What a pig! I kept expecting Charlotte to appear and start weaving a web above him. Loved those Border Collies!
Time for the
annual bi-weekly vacuuming of the dog hair.
Hope you all have a good week!
