We came home yesterday to celebrate Fathers’ Day and to get a few things taken care of. We plan to head back to the hills probably on Friday. As we headed into Atlanta’s traffic and heat, we wondered what in the heck we were doing! Sunday afternoon I wore a sweatshirt. It was 56 degrees that morning and never got really warm.
I might get the camera out later today. We have some volunteer zinnias that are blooming and are pretty.
Not much else going on here.
If things aren’t blooming so you can take pictures, go buy some flowers. These gerbera daisies looked so pretty when I stopped at Poppy’s in Brevard to buy steaks for dinner. So they were placed in the shopping cart!
Anne and Cleg came up yesterday to spend a couple of days with us. We had a great dinner of steaks (they were so big that Anne and I split one and neither of us finished ours), hash brown potatoes, salad and Anne’s pound cake. YUMMY!
We got up today and Tommy, Cleg and the dogs went for a walk. When they returned, we made French Toast and bacon for breakfast. Not having had enough of a walk earlier–and needing to walk off breakfast–Tommy, Cleg and the dogs went for another walk. They were gone for about an hour and returned right before the storm that came through.
For lunch Anne made chicken, cheese and pesto paninis. I ate only a bite, but they were delicious. Tonight’s dinner will be hamburgers and pasta salad thanks to Anne. I feel like all we’re doing while they’re here is eating.
Please ignore the “#6 Effort”. I am participating in a photography challenge that has 26 different things to find for a photograph. I thought Effort was most appropriate for what Tommy was doing. We will certainly enjoy the firewood when it turns cold up here!
Not much going on here today. Tommy and Bubba took a long walk this morning. When they turned around to head back home, Bubba took off without Tommy. Although Bubba had been on a few walks, he had not been as far as they went this time. But, he hurried on home by himself and found his way. Good thing–if Tommy had come back without a puppy he would have been in big trouble!
I had planned on spending a lot of time practicing with my camera while we are here. Unfortunately, there’s not much to take pictures of. However, I did find this butterfly on one of the purple cone flowers that Tommy transplanted from home.
Hall came for dinner tonight. He wasn’t able to last night as he had to fix a water leak at the house. But, he did get his potato casserole!
It sure was nice getting to BG yesterday. We were so tired–I’m not sure why–that we decided we didn’t want to eat dinner.
It was hot here–about 95 degrees. Too hot to do anything. I did go out and tried to get some photos of a butterfly on our butterfly weed bush. Apparently butterflies don’t like beagles around. So I came back inside and started packing for NC. Besides, the mosquitoes are terrible this year. Yuck!
Tommy and I drove up to Lake Lanier to let Bubba meet his cousins Gracie and George. When we got there Cleg and Anne took us for a boat ride.
Bubba was very vocal throughout the boat ride!
And for Amanda who loves to see Gracie wearing her life preserver:
Here’s George showing Bubba how Boat Beagles are supposed to act:
