Feeling like summer

Today has been such a beautiful day, I can feel summer coming!

The dogs are happy to have their girl, Chantel, home during the day.

My phone died the other day and I made the "leap" and got a smart phone. I don't think it was very smart of me though, because I haven't seen it since.

The day was so beautiful..I spent a lot of time enjoying our yard.

The kittens thought it was a beautiful day to play.

Then they figured a nap would be good too.

Our dogwood tree in the front yard is still heavy with blossoms.

The kids and I had one of our favorite things for dinner--fresh blueberry and strawberry crepes. YUM!

We had such a gorgeous sunset to end a beautiful day!

This is just my favorite kind of day. I hope we have a lot of days like this this summer.

Thanks to everyone sending your good wishes to Phoebe. She is doing just great!

Thanks for visiting!

I missed it about Phoebe, but glad she is getting better. I love that dogwood! It looks like a pink one~quite stunning! There was a dogwood blight in New England and lots of them were wiped out, so now they aren't as common as they used to be and that is sad. The kids look happy its summer too.

Sounds like you had a perfect day, taking the time to enjoy life. You're so well surrounded with all those beautiful children and fur babies! Your poor daughter is covered in doggies, lol! They're all so cute!

Great idea having crepes for dinner, with berries so abundant right now!

And the kittens! They melt my heart. Sooo cute!

We should all take a page from your book and pause to enjoy the simple delights of life.
