Clackamas County Fair...  instilling wonder since 1906

 Note the "Milk a Cow" station behind them in the video!
Shhhhh!  Babies sleeping!

 This mama pig had adopted the two little brown piglets from another mama who couldn't feed them.  
So sweet!
 This horse's coloring was so different!  He looked like a paint-by-number.

It's tradition to end the day on the fair train.  What a happy lot we are!

Amazing pre-sunset...and the accompaniment was also amazing.  The church doors were open wide and William Byrd music was spilling into the evening.  Such a perfect moment.

Summer Staple

Homemade pizza!  Granted, I have to turn on the oven, but this has been an almost weekly treat all summer!  Pillsbury thin crust, Newman's marinara, broccoli and cheese for Jack; arti hearts for Lily, various veggies for the grown-up end.  Yum and yummer!


A Hair (almost) Haiku

Dark was my mood.

The worst haircut ever.

Stupid Bishops.

Sunday's Theme

This was an odd one for a Sunday, but I'm plowing on.

Sunday:  The last thing I bought was...

The perfect summer hat!  
This hat had it's inaugural wearing at Por Que No, which seemed appropriate.  

It's second outing will be to the county fair on Thursday.  That aughta break it in just right!

Lily's New Dress

Just finished up a new dress for Lily.  I'm making a dress for me from the same fabric. And one for Pup, because of course Pup needs one, too!

Thursday's word: Joy

I just have a picture.  This is Lily in her element:  surrounded by friends, being silly.
