Lazy Crazy Days Of Summer

The last days of summer around here have been a bit on the lazy and definitely on the crazy side! Our girly girls are around for just a little more before they head back off to their young adult lives. They are in their early twenties, but when they are home like to be kids again! Why not....home is where you can really be yourself, kick off your shoes, cocoon and totally rooolax:-).

We had a birthday here this week, did some pool time, went out for lobster and just had some fun. Tomorrow our older girl goes back to where she is living now, and younger daughter Fufu is coming with us on a long weekend trip.





We are off to visit Mr. Fufu's father, who lives about a 3 hr drive from here over on beautiful Sanibel Island, Fl. There is a new baby (of the fur kind) in the family....my 84 yr old father~in~law just got a new puppy. Isn't he adorable??? Now you might wonder why someone of that age would get a puppy after just losing his faithful fur companion of the last 17 yrs. He is NOT like anyone typical of his age~hits the gym daily and then a 15 mile bike ride, has a fantastic attitude~someone to really look up to as aging well. Sanibel is one of earth's paradise islands....it has the largest natural collection of sea shells in the world I do believe, and is where I often gather my sea shells for my projects.

So off we go.....I won't be working this weekend like I usually do, it will be nice.

I want to thank Kimberly of Niesz Vintage Home for passing along the Brillante Weblog Award to my blog. She is possibly the only one in the world with a larger collection of vintage fabrics than me (lol!), so go over and pay her a visit and check out her supply on her website.


Talk soon.......enjoy your summer's days....

Hi Janet,
Congrats on the award, I'll have to go see Kimberly next week.

I just had to check in here for the weekend. Looks like a week & weekend full of fun. Happy Birthday to Daughter Fufu, she likes sushi? Very good taste there!

I think your father-in-law should get together with my step-father, he's 82 and works 6 days a week (because he wants to ;) Those go-getters!

That puppy is precious - a Maltese? That was Zeke's predecessor.

Have fun, the island sounds wonderful. Ahhh - the last days of Summer.
xoxo~Tracie
