Surprising Summer in Texas

This has been a pretty crazy summer, weather wise, here in Texas.  It's only gotten into the upper 90s and 100s a handful of times and it's already the end of August!

Morbidly Beautiful

If you've seen my Memorial Day posts for the last two years, Austin Weddings, Flat Tires, and The True Meaning of Memorial Day and Memorial Day 2014, then you probably remember that the ceremony is held in a cemetery.

Luckily, I have not had too many occasions to spend much time in cemeteries and have given very little thought to the aesthetics of them.

August's Clever Creation

What do you think about that title?  I know a million and one other people have used it, but I'm kind of liking it.  I'll keep thinking and keep sending me your suggestions please!

Well, this month I am working on something that might be a fun first day of school gift for a teacher, an altered puzzle!

Oh Those Boys...

Hey everybody.  You'll have to forgive me for the single, late post this week, but Tuesday was my Monday and I've been playing catch up because Pepper and I were lucky enough to have spent the weekend at the lake with Janice and Tessa!  It was a blast and I wish I could share pictures with you, but the space cadet struck again and I forgot my camera at home!  I know, what was I thinking?!?  I tried buying a point and shoot while I was down at the lake, but there wasn't much selection and the one that I got was not great and has already been returned.  Pepper and I do have plans to make another trip down while the swimming is still good and, not only to BRING A CAMERA, but to make sure that it has a waterproof case so Janice and I can get pictures of the dogs in the lake.  In the meantime, let me tell you and Jack and Louie...This picture is deceptively cute, the boys are little demons!  Adorable, sweet, constantly in trouble demons!

Space Cadet

I had today's post all planned out and then I ran out of the house this morning without the hard drive that has all my photos on it!  What!?!  Yep, apparently my brain decided to go on vacation and forgot to tell me!

I was planning on telling you who Louie and Jack are.  I realized the other day that I just started including photos of two new dogs, but never told you who they were or where they came from.  I could just recycle the pictures that I've already shown you, and honestly you'll get some of that, but I do have one new photo, yep just one because it is SO hard to get them to sit still for even the 2 seconds it takes to take their photo!  Especially together!  Wiggly squiggly little boys.  Actually, maybe missing today will be a good thing and I can find/take more photos of Jack, aka the demented bunny, and Louie, aka the attention hog.

So, what brilliant things have you guys done lately?  Come on, make me feel better!
