Here is Granddaughter Sydney after a stroller ride with DS Dad.
This is my new desktop photo.
Just a little over a week before Granddaughter Kimmy and I get on a plane and head out to Idaho to see some of these smiles in person.
Sunday evening in the triple digit heat, I noticed Mom Bluebird peeking out of the nest box. Thought it was rather strange, especially in the heat.
Early Monday morning when the dogs and I walked by, she was still peeking out of the nest box. When I said "Good morning" to her, she flew out so I looked in to see what was going on.
A third brood! I didn't know they ever did three broods in a year and I didn't think they would do one this late in the season.
Certainly something to smile about.
Black-eyed Susans, one of my favorite wildflowers, are blooming in the field where we walk the dogs.
They're such a happy flower. They make me smile.
This is the Knitpicks Essentials sock yarn I won in the Six Sock Knitalong CIC drawing. The color is dusk, a medium heathery grayish blue.
The skeins are soft. The yarn seems to be very nice and I'm looking forward to getting it on the needles. There won't be a final review until I've worn and washed the resulting socks a few times.
Guess that means I'd better knit them for myself. Smile.
The Heat Wave is Almost Over
The thunderstorms blowing into the area are bringing a cold front. Temps in the mid 70s tomorrow.
Sunny and I are going to a doggy school picnic at Lake Michigan to celebrate. We're hanging around to watch the sun set over the lake - and I'm bringing a sweater.
