Day 5: Sunny Sunday Fun day

I know people usually only talk about the weather when there’s nothing else to say, but today, the weather was worthy subject matter all it’s own.

Beautiful sky
Gorgeous, right?


Today, the weather was beyond belief. It’s July in the Midwest, which usually renders more than 5 minutes outside an impossibility, and yet I write this post from my deck, after cooking dinner outside and even – yes – building a fire. After a week of monsoon conditions followed by a week of draught,  this week mother nature decided to grace us with weather usually reserved for football Sundays in October.

It’s been downright magical, and the dogs have been soaking in every minute.

This level of stillness never happens


Can we take a second to appreciate the fact that Lambeau actually stood still long enough to capture that shot? Lambeau, our 2.5 year old beagle/fox hound (we’re guessing?) mix never sits still for long, and this may be the only clear photo I have of him.

Cooper, Lambeau’s older and wiser brother, is just over 5. According to Cooper, there’s only one word to describe a day like today:


I completely agree, Cooper. Today was a perfect way to wrap up the weekend, and I’ll admit I’m not quite ready for it to be over.

Oh well … Monday’s just another day, I suppose.
