Doing My Part

On Monday and Tuesday, I received most of the books I ordered for the coming school year. This is one of Bridget's. I've been trying to get a head start.

Late Afternoon Sunshine

It was a beautiful afternoon, so we stopped at the park on the way home from Mass.

Let It Fly


Seldom content to rest on their laurels, Sam and Henry couldn't let too much time go by between construction projects. Since the fort was just about complete, they turned their attention to a catapult.

Here's Stella, mixing up who-knows-what.

Clover is Beautiful

Stella picked this flower for me, and it's sitting on my desk in a silver vase.

Seen at the Park

Bridget and I took our cameras to the park at the lake. It was busy on this late summer Sunday, but this couple on the bench found a peaceful spot.

A Regular

The butterfly bush out front draws a crowd. This is one of the flying creatures hanging out there as of late. You can see a few others over on my Flickr photostream.

Back Wall

Yesterday, Dennis painted the new clapboards on the front and back of the house. He covered the side of the house this evening.

He did a great job of priming all the clapboards before Fred nailed them to the house.

Early Morning Standout

I've been getting out of bed awfully early as of late (thanks to contractors, electricians, lumber delivery drivers), and this beauty caught my eye because it caught the sunlight.

The Hubs

Every now and again, Dennis steps outside when I have my camera in hand, so I take his picture.

Yard Sale Today

We tried to sell the chair, but not Jack.


This is what the northeast side of the house looks like today.

Henry and Bridget felt no qualms about sampling the cheesecake Luke was working on this afternoon. We just had it for dessert, and it was delicious.

The mold room got insulated today, and the windows should arrive tomorrow.

It was nice to get out with friends and family today.
