more random

Summer is quickly fading away.  I want to capture as much of the warm summer days as possible.  The last few days it has gotten almost chilly in Illinois. A reminder that fall isn't too far away.
 
Colin and I like to get in the car after dinner some evenings and drive.  No destination in mind, just away.  We ended up far in the country a few nights ago and was able to witness a beautiful sunset.
 
 
Mr. Tiger in all his glory.
 

 
Canning pickles with my Dad.  This was a first for me and I cannot wait to try what we created.  Dad did the majority of the work because I arrived late to his house, so we'll give him the credit.

 
My little strawberry patch in a container is producing fruit.  Very slow going, but enough to grab a strawberry each time you are in the yard playing.

 
The outline of Ms. Calleigh.  She is my sleeping buddy.  She sits and stares at me until I pet her.  It's a every evening ritual in my bedroom.  I try to tell her it isn't polite to stare but she doesn't care. She just wants so lovin.

New Family Member

 
We have a new member to our family.....Pebbles.  My Sister adopted a sweet little girl from her local Humane Society.  Her owner passed away and her children could not keep her so they had to place her up for adoption.  I don't believe there is anything better in this world than rescuing an animal. Pebbles doesn't know this yet but she is going to have the best life a dog-dog could ever want.
 
 
Here she is on her way home with Shelby.  Isn't it great to go for a ride in the car and out of those cages Pebbles??

 
When Colin and I got home Thursday night we had to Skype to meet our new family member.

 
Shann and I have the same Mary Engelbreit flip calendar.  On Friday, Pebbles first full day being adopted, this was the quote for the day.  It's a sign, Pebbles was meant to be.  :)

 
Friday morning I received this text picture from my Sissy.  Pebbles was sitting with her during the morning coffee rituals looking out the window watching the world go by.  Look how sweet she is!
 
We love you already Pebbles.  Romeo too (I hope!).  Can't wait to meet you!!
