Dog days

This summer is almost gone and, although there are many hot days left before our fall gets here, we are entering the dog days of summer. And it's time for Georgia Bulldog season as well - stitching and watching the Dawgs on tv = a good thing and one that's on my agenda for today!

BabyGirl is back at college : ( and it's funny how even though she was in and out of the house all summer, the house feels like it's missing something when she's away at school. Miss Kitty, who pretty much ignores me whenever BG and her boyfriend are around, is hanging out with me again.

The Amanson sampler is almost finished. I ran out of a thread and will finish stitching it whenever it gets here. In the meantime I'm going to finish A Whistling Girl. I have so many projects I really want to start but am really trying to focus on finishing a few first ... we'll see how that goes!

My wonderful husband and I celebrated our 27th anniversary this week, which is why I chose all Allman Brothers songs for my playlist this week - so many good memories! It's hard to believe that much time has gone by. As I tell him regularly - he is one lucky man!

Random summer shots from my phone camera. I never seem to have the real camera with me:

Happy Belated Anniversary:)

I LOVE the Allman Brothers!!!!

I know what you mean about the house seeming empty when they head back to college..even though they were in and out while home...there is still that knowledge..that they won't be back for a while...that causes the loneliness.

Love your photo's and your thoughts on well as your stitching.

I will be adding you to my blogs I follow and be back to visit often.

Have a joyous day,

Oh your sampler is gorgeous - love the colors. That stinks you ran out of thread though - I hate it when that happens!!!

A VERY belated happy anniversary wish to you, Dona. Sheesh! I need to step it up a bit.
I love the way the Amanson sampler is looking; you're almost there!
My kitty treats me exactly the same way when my kids are around. When they leave, I am her best friend again. Go figure.
