The summer night is like a perfection of thought. ~ Wallace Stevens (1879 – 1955)

Thank you to the ladies who answered my question about the Rush license plate in my last post. Obviously, I am not at all familiar with the band. If I was, the freakin’ names of the band members on the license plate holder would have tipped me off. πŸ™‚

In the good news department (and really, it’s about time, it’s been a rough year)…a couple of nights ago I took the dogs for their first walk since April! I probably could have walked them a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to make sure I was healed enough to handle anything that might happen. And, I’m glad I did because Kishka flushed a rabbit and took off running. When she reached the end of her leash, I was able to stop her without causing any pain to my back or hip. Once the weather cooperates (it’s been too hot and stormy to walk the past two days), I plan to get back in the routine of a daily walk with the girls. That will make all three of us very happy.

The newest project on the needles is coming along nicely:

I’ve also been knitting on the felted bag, but there’s not enough progress to really show in a picture.

I’ve owned Kishka for 4.5 years and last night she did something she’s never done before:

She slept on her back. I apologize for the completely undignified and unladylike angle of this photo. I knew that if I stood up and moved she would flip off her back.

Today was a gorgeous day here so the girls and I hit the open road:

Both of the girls love car rides. Samantha sits at attention the whole time:

Kishka enjoys the ride for a bit:

And then she starts looking bored:

Today the sky was bright blue and there were plenty of puffy clouds:

Warm The World is currently looking ahead to winter and our commitments totaling almost 3000 hats and scarves. Can you help us reach our goal? Full details can be found here.

  1. It sounds like you had a nice walk with the girls. πŸ™‚ I love your new project. The pattern is gorgeous. πŸ™‚

  2. I’m glad you are healed and can enjoy walking the dogs again!!! Your pictues are wonderful, I laughed out loud when I saw Kishka “bored” in the car. I just love it. I’ve got to show it to my son, he needs something to laugh as well! Thanks for sharing your pictures, and I think Kishka feels totally relaxed around you! ;o)

  3. The lace is very pretty. It seems you had a wonderful ride.

  4. God what an utterly perfect day! Cool pics. And isn’t lying exposed like that a signal that the dog feels comfortable and non-threatened?

  5. So glad that you are healed and doing the things you love to do! Your new project is georgous and the dogs are cute as ever! πŸ™‚

  6. So glad to see you’re feeling better! And that “puppy slut” (that’s what we call it) position is hilarious, as is Kishka’s bored look.

  7. Must have been the heat encouraging the unladly like sleeping arrangement. Abner loves to lay like that. But he’s not a lady πŸ™‚

    Lovely pictures, once again. the puppies look hapy.

  8. Hi Kathy – I found you over on ravelry and loved some of your comments on the “what makes a great blog” post. Plus you have dogs! πŸ™‚

    I love the photo of your dog sleeping on it’s back – too cute. My dog was in this pose the other night and I tried to sneak off my chair to get my camera which of course made her move! Darn!

  9. You have a GSD and a mal? Me too! Lovely furries, and the lace pattern is coming along nicely. (I found you on Ravelry.)
