I just love horses! I had one as a child, the pic is posts ago ! My sister and her daughter have horses. We all love them. They are great companions and have such beauty ! Here are some pics  that I like !
                                                They are all beautiful !

            Down here we have the Amish that travel by horse and buggy and still plow their fields with them. I think its a wonderful sight to see . I love the fact that the Amish still live by their traditional ways and haven't let the modern age change who they are and how they live !

We had a bad thunderstorm last night, lots of lightning , heavy rain fall and very windy! The hot humid weather continues! We usually get photos of the lightning but it was just to un predictable in what mother nature was planning during the storm. Hope everyone is staying cool in this heat wave ! Lots of lemon aid, ice tea and freezies going around here to help ! The odd run to the beach as well is always nice !
                                        Whats your favorite way to keep cool ?

 This little guy just loves our cone flowers, he is there every day !      
       We also rigged up this shade for our bird fountain to help keep the water cool .  I think it kind of  goes with the garden.

I came across a dirt road,
And thought I heard it say,
I know you’ve driven asphalt,
But please turn down this way.
And so I answered the dirt road,
And walked down its first mile,
The things I saw as I trudged on,
Caused me to slow and smile.

The dust that played beneath my feet,
And swirled so gently round,
Brought a smile unto my weary face,
And chased away my frown.
It brought back memories I had forgotten,
Of days so long ago,
When mostly there were dirt roads,
And driving was so slow.
I saw the butterflies long side,
On flowers that grew tall,
And saw a rabbit dart across,
And heard an eagle‘s call.
I saw great trees that furnished shade,
Tall, reaching for blue sky,
They gave needed cooling from hot sun,
To all those who passed by.
And then I passed a rundown house,
And felt a twinge of alarm,
It won’t be long till nothing’s left,
Where once there was a farm.
And then I thought of its future,
When the dirt road too is gone,
Encroaching grass along the edge,
Tells me it won’t be long.

Until the road has disappeared,
From all but memory,
And I wished with all my heart the road,
Could tell its history.
That it could tell me all about,
And I could hear it say,
"I am the very thing that caused,
Them all to move away.

Finally we got to go boating . It was so nice just crusin around, pup loved it. She just loves having the wind run through her fur and she loves to try to catch the water that splashes from the boat when it breaks through the waves.  We were in the boat for a few hours , then we went to a doggie beach off of lake Erie just steps from our marina, it was wonderful. There wasn't very many people and their pups there. Its like a regular beach but for dogs and their families. I was very surprised to the size of the beach, its huge, and very clean. Pups have to be on a leash, every one had them either on long ropes or retractable leashes so they can have space to run and swim. It was Misty's first time, she was a little scared at first but once she got in the water and realized how much fun it is to play with us and fetch things she did great and we all had a wonderful time, a definite return! We will take a camera with us next time thats for sure. Hope everyone is stayin cool ! till next time, have a great day !

The weather has been sooo hot ! We haven't even had a chance to go boating . See we live only 6 minuets from the lake and our marina , while the winds off the lake have been a welcoming thing and helping with keeping the heat bearable, they haven't been doing good for boating! Lake Erie can get quite choppy with waves, and the weather can suddenly change bad with out warning, so we haven't had a chance to go out on the boat GRRRR !
So we have just been lazing around doing alot of reading, even James has a book on the go. The weather will be cooling down soon so I expect we will be boating and doing more out door things, We have a back patio that has a open porch type roof I call a overhang and it provides alot of shade and we have been out sitting under that most of the day till the sun hits just around 5 pm. Then we go in for a bit have dinner and venture out again when the sun has weakened at about 8 pm ! We watch the birds and all the the critters gather up food before they retire for the night! play with pup and just enjoy the evening. I hope the weather gets a bit less humid soon so we can get out and about !   Hope you all are keeping cool !
