Ollie

This is a new portrait of Ollie the Schnauzer...What a handsome boy he is! I have had a really busy week here so I have not been posting as often as I would like...sorry. I have two different groups of friends visiting and I have been spending my time with them catching up and eating far too much food. Whenever we have company in town it seems to turn into a never ending food fest...why is that? I am going to have to do some serious dieting after this week and to be honest, the idea of another big meal leaves me cringing. It is time to step away from the table or at the very least, order a salad...
I also went on the local garden tour here this week and I have to say I love going through other peoples homes and seeing how they decorate, live, etc. It is always inspiring to me because I am not very talented in the home decorating department. I did not get that gene or the gardening gene...The theme of the tour this year was historic beach cottages and they were so quaint and homey. My favorite belonged to an artist of course whose eye for detail was amazing. She had this subtle wave theme that went through the entire house. The walls would have a curve to them or the railing on the steps had slats that were not straight, but slightly curved...The art was amazing and the colors in the home were sooo soothing. I would move in tommorrow if I could. I wish I could share photos but that was not allowed...I guess that is all for now. I hope you all have a nice weekend!
