I was busy last weekend making some "camo" dogs for my twin nephews for their birthday. When they saw the one I had made for their sister, they both wanted one in "camo" fabric. I tried different kinds of ribbon for collars and decided "Boy" dogs should not wear a ribbon. I may pick up some real dog collars for them. On my way to my Grandmothers on Sunday, I took a picture of this house because it has always been one of my favorites, and now it is being torn down for a new road. I know the road is really needed through there but I have always loved this house. It has a huge barn and used to have several stables and riding rinks for horses. I can just imagine what fun past occupants had in that house. I can't help but feel sad for old abandoned houses. Think of how excited the builders of the house were when they were moving into their beautiful brand new home. Sunday evening, when I was taking a walk down to the lake, I found that I wasn't alone in my walk. This beautiful deer stood perfectly still for quite some time as I continued to walk up to her. She finally ran off when I was within 50 feet, but was nice enough to pose for a photo before she was off. There is also ALOT of caterpillar nests in our trees! We are going to be bombarded with caterpillars this fall. Several years ago, our elderly neighbor decided to wage war against the caterpillars and after a "few" drinks, decided to go light the nests on fire. Needless to say, the fire got out of hand in the woods right next to our house! The fire department was able to extinguish the fire before too much damage was done. But he didn't learn his lesson, the next year he did it again! This time my husband was able to put the fire out before it spread to other trees.
It is supposed to be 100 degrees here today. Sigh. I'm looking forward to fall, ya'll!
