Summer fun and an update

Oh, don't you just love summer? One of my favorite things to do in the summer is hang clothes on the line. I'm lucky enough to have a nice flat yard with a great clothesline, and I wish I could use it more often! I usually end up doing laundry in the evening, and just use the dryer. But the other day I happened to be home on a nice sunny day and I took advantage of the opportunity to line dry some clothes. They smelled so good when I brought them back in the house!

I have to show you my clothespin bag . . . it's so cute!

My daughter often takes her dog to a nearby lake for a nice cool swim (it's actually a trick to give him a bath!) which he loves. The other day every lake she went to had kids swimming and although Hunter is very friendly she wasn't sure they would enjoy having him splashing around nearby. She ended up bringing him back home for a bath using the hose - which is not something he enjoys at all!

Look at this face!!

And finally, I wanted to give you an update on my Mother's Day hanging plant which was dead when I got it as shown here. A friend of mine stopped over, took the plant off it's hanger and shielded it from me as if I had killed it. She took it home and ta da! It's alive! Thanks Shari!!

I hope you are having a great summer! I'm working on a new embellishment set that I hope to post very soon.

So far so good this summer for us. Still waiting on Baby's arrival... I finished up what I can do on his/her announcements and am thinking of starting some more booties :)

Your plant is beautiful! I love having plants around but I get so sad when I end up neglecting them and they die. I remember crying over a plant of mine when I was in grade school!

I can't wait to see your new embellishment set :)
