Day 255 | Sept 12, Fri – Crafting time! Homer and Matthew, painting away…
Day 256 | Sept 13, Sat – The Search For the Northern Lights! … This is the best pic I got all night, which tells you everything you need to know, I think! This adventure probably deserves a blog post of its own… The short version is Tina, Homer, and I piled in the car at 11pm, drove east forever, made it into Cle Ellum (where I took this pic at the gas station), and even made it into Ellensburg.. But no lights. :( Still, it was a crazy evening and it makes me laugh whenever I think of it. We are crazy.
Day 257 | Sept 14, Sun – Dog park!! My sweet baby… He was the total n00b for the longest time, and now he’s the one gently playing with the unsure puppies, inviting them to play with his sweet little play bows. He’s amazing. I’m glad he’s so comfortable there! And it was great seeing Cinnamon, Garth, and Tank, too!!
Day 258 | Sept 15, Mon – We joined Tina and Matthew at Pine Lake! I experimented with some new photography tips I’ve been reading lately, and I really liked the results! This pic in particular is my favorite from the day, because Homer looks so deep in thought, and I love the way the sunlight looks on his sweet face. It was a really fun relaxing time to be out in nature just playing in the sand and water for so long, too. I’m glad we’re taking advantage of these last warm days before the cool of Fall settles in!
Day 259 | Sept 16, Tues – My friend, Heidi invited me to her moms’ group’s event at Palettes and Pairings! I was SO excited that it was the Seattle Starry Night painting. I’ve been wanting to do that one!! Here’s us, a pic of Heidi at work, and a close up of my painting.
Day 260 | Sept 17, Wed – It rained! Homer was excited to take out his new minions umbrella first thing in the morning.
Then we took Daddy to the dentist, where Homer loves playing with this wooden beads on wires thingie that all children seem to love.
And Joe in the dentist’s chair. He said he was due for his 75,000 mile maintenance workup.
Day 261 | Sept 18, Thurs – The next day was my own dentist appointment! It was my first visit with this dentist and I really love them. They’ve done great with Joe and Homer, and I had a great visit with them, too. They take x-rays and really great photographs of all your teeth, then show you close up what’s going on. I need two fillings replaced (next week!), and it was easy to see why, when they showed me on the monitor. I love my new dentist’s office, and I love THAT I love my new dentist’s office, you know? It’s a good feeling. I’m not even dreading my fillings next week, though that may change as we get closer to the day!! Anyway, check out my teeth! This is pre-cleaning btw, so ignore all that tartar, as it’s all gone now. ;)
And after a morning at the dentist, what’s more comforting than playing at our favorite coffee shop? ;)
And, that was our week! As always, thanks for stopping by! Hope you all had a great week!!
