When isn't it...

...the dog days of summer? Around here at least a portion of the day is! So the pups and I decided on a romp (well they romped anyway!) at Lake Wilhelm for awhile. No geese to chase today but I did spot this tree.

Does anyone know what type it is? I've never seen the little pine cone type pods on them before.

Honeydew found quite a few good scents but as Curly Joe had already found something stinky to roll in earlier this morning which necessitated an unscheduled bath, I wasn't allowing further exploration of that particular area!

I was able to snap a still shot of each which turned out well!

The lake was very still today and looked like it may be in its "turning over" phase as it looked a bit like pea soup.

The pups spent the rest of the afternoon napping while I did up some laundry, started dinner and went to the Y for water therapy. Tonight it will be knitting more on my shawlette. I am almost finished so pictures will be coming soon.

Everyone needs to runaway...

once in a while....even if it is just for a few hours, to take a time out, catch our breath and just be. Hubby and I did just that yesterday and took ourself to Lake Erie, to wade along the waters edge, collect a couple of smooth flat rocks and watch the sea gulls glide on the breeze. A few even ventured close for a snap shot. I think we will do this a little more often and perhaps find a good spot on the shore line to drop a line next time, maybe for some steelhead this fall.

we even attempted to take a shot of the two of arms aren't quite long enough, next time I will bring my "real" camera. :)

It's the little things..

which can inspire personal creativity, peace and joy in the most unexpected time and place.

For me it is to take time to knit or spin at least a few minutes each day. And longer if I can get away with it :)
