Eagle Lake

Ava and Mom and I managed to sneak in an hour around Eagle Lake today. Felt guilty being away from computer and phone mid day but it beats valium.

Friend for Ava?

I played with a 5 month old dachsund puppy and cuddled him for an hour on Saturday, with friends at Stewman's. He was the sweetest baby and ever since I have been obsessed with getting Ava a puppy. She would either love it or hate it, there wouldn't be an in between. She LOVES to play with Mulligan and Murphy and neither of them want to play.... ohhhhh... what to do.

My little girl...

Mom and Dad wanted to climb Day Mountain - I said "Ava can't do that" (meaning "I can't do that :-) but going up Day is just a long gradual incline carriage road. Ava said if the horses can do it, I can do it. BEAUTIFUL day and views. Dad even brought a little picnic. Only problem, Av wasn't totally into the photo opp on top.

OMG!!! LOOK! So beautiful!!!

Spent the day to Boothbay and back for a meeting. LOOK at what was here when I got home. My birthday present that Dad said he was working on but I guess I kind of forgot because I cried when I came home tonight and saw this. AND Dad, Mom and Ev were here with Ava and Mulligan so saw it all. It is so gorgeous, even more so in real life. So happy, what a gorgeous part of all the new Dad landscaping.

Does three days in a row make a pattern?

Sunday Day Mountain with Dad, Mom and Ava - Monday Jordan Stream with Mom, Ava and Mulligan - Tuesday Bubble Pond with Mom, Ava and Muggs. Unfortunately, in this photo that Dad got of Ava on Day Mountain Summit she looks like she is going potty. She's not....

Can't stop listening to a few songs on this record. LOVE LOVE LOVE. We are working with Travis on a few things. Really enjoy the great people we meet through Maineville Music. I don't think Aaron and I had any idea where this could all lead. Very blessed.

No more procrastinating....

I think there is a very good chance that more is going to happen in the next four months than has happened all year. We can't say "I'll deal with it after Labor Day" anymore.

Trying to balance choosing new cabinet hardware for upgrading bathrooms at Danforth with understanding a song publishing contract for one song, one artist and the copyrights etc....

Speaking of knobs, pretty, huh?

Landscaping, by Grampa

So Ava and I started the job... we carried the trowel over.... but Grampa finished it with Mulligan overseeing things. Pretty mums between the garage doors. I need to go get pics of the chipping going on now.

Quite simply, I am blessed....

SO incredibly fortunate to have such amazing people in my life. It was one thing to have three great days with Aaron, chasing our dream, sharing his incredible talent with friends but on top of THAT!!! Ava was home, safe and loved with Grampa and Gam so I could truly enjoy and focus on Maineville. Lucky, lucky girl - I am. both Ava and I are.
