Happy Friday to you~It sure has been a busy week and I find myself actually looking forward to the slower days of autumn.  Hunter and I started out the morning yesterday walking with Lexie, his best gal pal, and her mom Kam.  He thrives on these walks.  After we got back, I had chores to work on and later in the morning hubby and I went to Koh*'s to check out their sale; our good friends are having a huge 40th wedding anniversary party tomorrow and I was hoping to find something casual and summery to wear-no such luck.
Last night we went to our weekly concert in the park and this time took Hunter; with his being so shy I need to be getting him into crowds to help him adjust a bit.  I was fully prepared that it was going to be a long evening but he surprised me; he was glad when Kam arrived and when our youngest daughter Kim and her family showed up too.  He sat on the grass or in my lap the entire time and my concern about his barking at the other dogs was unfounded.  We rewarded him with a short walk when we got home, the evenings have been so perfect and it was a great way to end the day.  Today we are going on our usual walk and then hitting the garage sale circuit.  I'll be sewing the rest of the day; we were supposed to have one group of three grands over to spend the night but they all have summer colds so we'll have to postpone it.  Tomorrow is pretty open except for the party; hubby will be the photographer and I'll be helping keep the food out.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, may your feet take you to new places and  your heart soar.
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  5. So thrilled to read that Hunter (and his human parents) had a wonderful evening last night.

    I've been pretty busy this morning, in spite of having nothing on my agenda, but I'm going to take a break and get some work done on my log cabin quilt. Enjoy your time with needle and thread! ;-)

  6. Sounds like it was a perfect evening. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. How wonderful that you took Hunter and he enjoyed the outing. Sounds to me like he is "growing up". What fun to hae him around other people and have him be good.

    I hope you have fun at the outing..and found something to wear! I'd hate to have you show up in Saran wrap! xo Diana

  8. Sounds like Hunter did well. I hope you have a wonderful time at the party.. What did you end up wearing?

  9. I so enjoy reading your posts, Noreen, and I am sorry that it has taken me a while to do so this week. I haven't been keeping up very well, but I am rewarded when I do get a chance to visit my blog friends! So much has happened in Colorado recently, and like you, I have been praying for all who have been impacted by the fires and the senseless killings. Your post today reminds me that our lives go on as we trust in God's care for His people, for even the daily adtivities, such as walking Hunter and going to events with him, are treasures. Have a wonderful week!
