Gone Swimmin'

It's an absolutely BRILLIANT Autumn day here in Oregon!  Sunny and 60 degrees.  The sun comes into the house at a different slant this time of year, and Buddy the Cairn Terrier is known to find a puddle of sunshine to enjoy.  Here is a shot of the dining room with Buddy taking his nap.

Here is a better photo of the Lucy Bird I made, the last one didn't show the true colors.  This will be a gift for my sister "Bird" (Roberta) for her birthday.  Shhhh.. don't tell.  :-)

Dear Husband is off to find replacement hoses for his pressure washer so he can pressure wash the deck.  When it rains the deck gets all SLIPPPPPERY, so hopefully this will remove whatever it is that makes it scary to walk on! 

And I'm off to go swimming for an hour in a lovely salt water pool.  I'm just pleased to be able to get out in the world on this beautiful day, as the rains are expected to arrive tomorrow and here in Oregon... that might mean weeks and months of it! :-)

Have a great day my friends, toodles!!  Teresa
