Sweet Summertime

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” 
― Henry James

In the summer, I work an extra hour each day Monday-Thursday, and only a half day on Friday.  I don't love that schedule Monday-Thursday, but I really enjoy it on Friday!  My weekend started with a lunch date with David, followed by a good long nap, and pizza for dinner.
 On Saturday, we took Riley to an event called Bark in the Park, which is a fundraiser for our local off-leash park.  We enjoyed seeing all the different breeds of dogs that were there.  Then we took a walk around the lake at the park and I took a stroll through the hosta garden.  It looks exceptionally lush this year with all the rain and cool weather we've had.
 After Bark in the Park, we went to the annual June Bug Jamboree - a car show dedicated to Volkswagons - to stroll among the cool old cars and buses.  This one might be in my price range - a VW tent! :)
 I put out little flags to celebrate Flag Day,
 and spent some quality time gazing up at the leaves from my hammock.
 I finally took down the Easter wreath from the front door, and put together this summer look.
 On Sunday, we woke up to rain, but had sun by afternoon.  For Father's Day, we celebrated with my Dad and Mom with a delicious smoked brisket dinner that David made. Riley was happy to try to get in my Dad's lap for an extra "Happy Father's Day" snuggle.
All weekends are pretty good, but summer weekends are especially great!

Thank you to my faithful readers, Mom and Leila.  I'm pretty sure you're the only ones still checking the blog and I appreciate all your kind comments on the vacation posts! :)
