The Week In Seven Photos

After being teased with hoodie weather recently I would normally spend a few minutes venting about the return of summer weather with storms and the dew point reaching 70, but this ornery freeloader let me know the conditions were worse for him and that he would appreciate a fan for his digs under our deck.

Luckily there was a somewhat cool and peaceful morning walking the city streets before the horrible weather arrived

and Harper endured new major experiences.  She still loves the security of the stroller as we wander with the camera, but for the first time she proudly escorted me down the driveway to take out the scary garbage can monster amidst the squirrels throwing dozens of their winter cone collection at us.  Then things went downhill quickly when Harper had her first scary encounter with a big leaf and the groomer (so far she’s refusing any photos until her hair grows a little).  

It was a scary week for me too after being terrorized by Pennywise watching the movie It.  After being inspired by brave little Harper, I was ready to face my fears again and see It Chapter Two this week, but then I discovered the movie is 169 minutes and I don’t think it’s healthy at my age to be scared for that length of time.  Harper agrees and wants a 15 minute grooming appointment in the future.

There were peaceful moments in between all the stressful situations with the mother and two fawns visiting daily and

beautiful flowers still decorating the city streets.

I’m not sure if it’s due to the strange year I’ve had or lately watching too many football games, but right now I’m struggling with trying to do something creative every day.  It will be five years of blogging in November and you may begin to see some changes along the way as I search for new creative inspiration.
