Recently I took a walk up the ridgeline trails and realized I had not done this enough this summer. Such a perfect walk in the evenings. Beautifully quiet and serene, and with a little hint of fall in the air.
And as the summer comes to an end, that always means it’s time for Sammy’s birthday…her 17th this year and a junior in High School. We celebrated by going up to Detroit Lake and stayed at a friend’s rental. A warm and smokey filled weekend from the Central Oregon fires still allowed us a lot of time on the lake as well as games at night with the family!! And of course, celebrating several summer family birthdays too.
I can’t end a blog with the latest picture of Bella who now is 10 months old and loves still being outside whenever we open the door (although as I am typing, I honestly think I saw a mouse out the corner of my eye, going down the hallway!!!!!!!). Ughhhhh!! No more open doors and I going to teach Bella how to be a mouse dog!!!!
