There's something about the dark skies of a rain moving in, and older barns that stirs something deep inside. I can't quite explain it. I had to step outside and soak in the beauty of it all, and then we all stood on the porch afterwards and watched the rain come sweeping over the hill.
Buddy had a slow day when he woke up with a stuffy nose. Instead of charging outside like usual, he plopped on the floor with a piece of bubble wrap and spent several hours, painstakingly popping the bubbles one by one.
Rosebud enjoys trying a new recipe every week. This week that happened to be Mini Chocolate Silk Pie. They turned out to be quite the tasty little treat.
We finished up our third week of school. One of the books we read when looking for an allegory other than the ever popular Pilgrim's Progress was this one. A short, sweet, inspirational read that we enjoyed.
Our roses continue to bloom. This week provided a new orange hued rose that we all admired. Buddy especially thought it's a very special color after all the reds and pinks we had been getting.
I'm not a big fan of ice cream. Sitting down to enjoy a bowl full does not sound enjoyable to me. This week, however, we decided on a whim to get a box of Turkey Hill brand. Oh, my!! If all ice cream were this good I would start looking for reasons to eat it. Creamy, silky, pure delightfulness. The type of treat where you consider locking yourself in a closet somewhere to eat it so that you don't have to share.
It has been a summer of moths, this year, and we saw a lot that were new to us. Several days ago, it was this one that came by.
