Blissfully quiet for the most part.
The lilies are blooming.
Our favorite Stargazer lilies. We planted 3 plants two years ago and they didn't return last summer. To our surprise, one re-appeared this summer.
It was so hot and humid during the day, we spent our time reading in the sun and cooling off in the pool.
In the evening the dogs came out to play. Our Miss LuLu has taken huge steps toward trusting us the past month.
The biggest obstacle is avoiding mosquitos this big. Seriously, what the hell is in the water to make these mutants! I'm going to die from DEET toxicity.
When you're just laying around the house what else is there to do but eat. Blueberry pancakes for breakfast.
A made each of the dogs their own personal 50 cent piece size pancake.
Add Turkish coffee to give a little jolt to your day.
Birthday dinner of grilled lobster, shrimp and asparagus.
A wanted my artery-clogging pineapple upside down cake. Here she is enjoying a late night snack of cake, Cool-Whip and milk.
A movie and popcorn night.
LuLu goes absolutely crazy when she hears the popcorn hit the pan. There is much dancing, spinning and chirping.
And the old man Giz is always there to protect his claim on the popcorn bowl and keep the youngsters in line if they get too pushy.
LuLu had to be rescued after the sticker on the watermelon got the best of her.
And I had to be rescued when a violent thunderstorm went through. The sirens went off, the power went out and I found myself in total blackness trying to round up dogs and get them to the basement. A came to the rescue with flashlights and candles...we made it through without any major damage.
