this and that

a post about this and that.

This little golden doodle (he's not golden in color as you can see), came into our lives this week. We got him from the breeder where we got our little pocket beagle, Max. This little guy grew up 10 feet away from a cranberry bog near the Ocean Spray company.
He's fluffy,
cuddly, soft
sweet, smells like baby powder from his new shampoo, Max's big little brother,
and our new dog! He's also going to grow much bigger than Max. Look out, Max! We named him Ollie.
That is a celebration. We celebrated my mom's birthday. I made strawberry shortcake in Mason jars. So yummy! But, I forgot to take a picture of them, so here are the flowers I picked for the table from our garden. Lilies. They smell VERY strong. A bit too strong, but they are pretty. Below is the corn on the grill that we made. It's soooooo yummy once you peel away the charred husks. To make: Soak the corn in water for about 45minutes., grill it for approx. 15 min. and it's bliss!

This is the best window washer in town! He thought it was funny to squirt me from the outside. He washed the front porch, brick walkway and all! Thanks for being so awesome, Will!

That means I'm tired this week! Raising a puppy is not easy. It's SO MUCH work! Consistency and a schedule is key. I'm not very good at both of those when I'm on summer vacation, but this dog is making me get back on track.

So, with that I found this amazing, inspiring blog for organization, getting rid of stuff and so much more. It's called, A BOWL FULL OF LEMONS. It's just what I need before I start back to work and the wild rumpus starts! Visit right now and tell her that I sent you!
