rainy mornings

I like summer.  I really do.  But days like today…they are a nice break.  And something inside of me can’t help but get excited for autumn on a day like today (it is, after all, my favourite time of year).

Minnie the Pug is still not sure about her rain vest yet though.  However, she is more unsure about the rain (and without the vest she just stands at my feet and shivers) so at least she will *ahem* do her business outside when it’s raining now.

a walk in the park

We took Minnie the Pug to a park close to our house this evening.  It’s got lots of open spaces and tall grass.  She went totally nuts (in a good way) and always went straight for the tall grass (and frolicked).  Going to parks with dogs is so much more fun, I believe.

bits + pieces: evening edition

So.  Summer finally showed up here in BC.

It’s nice.

But it’s pretty hot.

We bought and air conditioner.  It’s first time I have actually wanted one.

Right now I am sitting in the house with all the lights off.  Somehow, it seems cooler that way.  I shot everything for bits and pieces with no lights on.  Aaand…that’s about how the evening went.

The remains of iced coffee.

I painted a little today.  This is not what I painted.  This is just my palette.  But I’m thinking it’s starting to look good enough to go on the wall. :P

Don’t worry, Bigsby fans.  I have not forgotten the wondercat since the coming of the Pug.

Worked on a little Rachmaninoff today.  First time since getting the Pug that I have been able to sit at the piano for longer than 2 minutes.

Blinds and curtains.  Shut.  Don’t let the light in.

This cotton eyelet dress gets worn a lot lately.

These are also getting a lot of use too.

He taunts her.  Somehow he forgets that she has chewed through that gate twice, and will do it a third time if she really wants to get to him.

Resting in the air-conditioned room.

Broke a string on my ukelele.  Dang.

Messy kitchen.  I’ll get to that tomorrow.

Minnie the Pug thinks it’s hot too.  She was sleeping, until she saw the camera.  Then she started barking at it.

The last light.

There goes the neighbourhood.

when pugs fly.

Minnie was learning to fly today.  I think she did pretty well.

thanks for a great evening!

Oh hi!

Just dropping in to say our show on Saturday was so fabulous and fun, and to thank everyone for coming out!  Singing jazz standards is fun anytime, but it’s even more fun when there’s a packed house listening. :)

So thank-you thank-you thank-you for the swell evening!

…And be on the lookout;  we have more shows coming up and I may just pull out my ukulele!  You never know…. :)
