Happy Long Weekend

Hello there. It's Friday again already, another week flown by. I do hope you have a happy and restful weekend.
Looking through my photos from Jackson, I found this, which I snapped during the drive home through desolate southern Wyoming. A beautiful trip through pretty barren country. It is another good memory of our full summer, now over. I am now beginning to accept fall, just as it should be. Thank you for visiting me here. I look forward to posting and visiting you more in the next few months!

On My Run

My nephew has been here for most of August to run, logging some beautiful, hilly miles in preparation for his fall cross-country season at school. We've been running with behind him, pointing him in the right direction. It's really been great fun. I've tried to snap a few photos between gasps for breath:
I do love running on the trails here. We'll try to keep it up, even after family leaves next week. Trying not to think about that - we'll miss them. Happy weekend to all of you.

Jackson Hole, WY

Hi there. Our summer is almost over and I'm having trouble with that! The first snow will likely fly one month from now. Truly. Not kidding. Summer is just not long enough, but we've certainly packed a lot in to make it a really good one. A marvelous recent highlight was our jaunt last week to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Wow.
We joined my sister's family, visiting with friends who live in Jackson part-time. What a fun trip we had! Our hosts were so welcoming and generous, and their home was truly beautiful and comfortable. We hiked, kayaked down the Snake River, rode horses, ate and drank well, viewed all sorts of wildlife, and celebrated a birthday!
The magnificent owl is a Great Gray, and then there's a beaver and some buffaloes. We also saw a moose, elk, a bald eagle, and a coyote. We had a ball and we're very thankful! I'll be back to more regular posting once school starts next week, but for now, we're eking out everything we can from these last days! Thank you for visiting!

Happy Friday and 1st Dibs Love

Wow. Another week has flown by! We are too close to the start of school; I do not want to think about it. We will savor these last weeks of summer! The season's gone too fast and I wish it would last much longer. I was definitely in a summery mood when I looked at 1st Dibs yesterday. Here are some of the cheery pieces (ie. mostly in ocean blues and beachy whites!) I'm loving from this week's listings...
and a few more shots-of-happy from their curated search, Endless Summer...
Happy weekend to you! I hope you enjoy the end of the Olympics and also get outside!
Find each of the above pieces here: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11.

We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Programming

I'm a bit wrapped up in the Olympics! It's causing a general lack of... well, anything else, really. Is that happening to you too?
I do hope you're enjoying the games. Happy weekend to you!
