Today was a beautiful day. On the verge of being too hot but still bearable. Tomorrow is going to be a different story---expected highs of 97 degrees---way too warm for Oregon!
I have taken some pictures lately that I think are pretty so I thought I would share.
I love the wildflowers that grow in our yard. They make the house look so pretty.
Then there is of course my roses, and I just adore them.
To me so much prettier than a store bought rose. I bought this particular rose bush at a garage sale several years ago for $5. The roses are such a beautiful color and shape.
I love a single rose in a silver vase. Simple pleasures.
My Mother gave me a vintage apron she found at a garage sale and I think it looks beautiful hanging in my kitchen.
Then there are my pretty kitties...
Phoebe and Fez have seemed to take over this pillow in the window seat. They so rule this house.
My beautiful girl Sophia has the most captivating eyes.
She is such a sweet girl. I just adore her. It has been almost a year since we adopted her.
I took this photo of my Daisy girl sitting on a chair I recently painted.
Awe...isn't she cute?!
Janae took this photo of her doggies when she was over visiting.
Janae is the Queen of pet photography! I like to think she took the talents she inherited from me and improved upon them :) Her dogs are so good about posing for her.
Tonight the kids and I took the dogs for a walk at 9:30 pm...thinking it would be cool enough but we were still so hot. When we are all together we are walking 7 dogs--I think some people think we are a dog walking service or something. So many of our neighbors had sprinklers going at that time of night...many of them soaking the sidewalk. It was such a hot night I decided to just let the sprinklers get Gage and I wet as I pushed his wheelchair through the falling water. He was laughing and wanted to do it again and again. It was a great way to cool off! Such good memories--I wish I had pictures of how much he was enjoying it.
I have the feeling tomorrow night Gage and I may just go out and sit in the sprinkler for awhile! I am busy freezing water bottles to put in with the Guinea pigs tomorrow--our house is 80 degrees inside today--tomorrow will be worse. With no air conditioning, I am preparing for the heat!
I hope this finds you keeping cool! Thanks for visiting!
