My Summer, so Far!

This picture shows dolphins playing in the Bay of Islands. Every year, the dolphins come into the bay, probably chasing their food source. Even wild dolphins have a natural ability to play and frequently, jump out of the water and put on a little show for us.

My summer, so far, has been going along in a positive, but steady march. This year, we hired a student to help out with some projects, so my weekends have been freed up and not filled up, with painting, staining and other assorted duties that must be done.

We(the royal,we, of course) are developing a small boarding kennel business and it is to be called Kozy Kennels. I will post some pictures as the project goes forward.

On the rug hooking front, I have been working now and then, on the Harry Potter crapper cover as one of those UFOs that need finishing. The larger projects will wait until the fall.

I still am not able to post comments on some of my fellow bloggers sites as I am having the same problems that Kim did in the past. Anyway, I try to post but it is like being in a revolving door with no exit.


  1. It has been a strange summer here. Almost feels like the summer that wasn't. Barely a handful of decent "summer" days.
    The Kozy Kennel sounds like a great idea. But a little bit too far away for Millie!
    The trick that worked for me on comments is to uncheck the box that says "say signed in" in your google account. Sounds stupid, I know, but it worked.

  2. Hi Julie,
    My you are ambitious and sounds like more work ahead! But I'm sure it will be enjoyable if it's something you like doing! Hope it all goes well for you!
    Good idea to hire some help.... as we get older we realize we just can't or shouldn't be doing it all any more!
    It must be wonderful to be able to enjoy the dolphins at play! They are fascinating!
