Since this is a blog about homemaking, I wondered if I should post this, since it's more just trying to be creative and having fun. But then I realized that we're supposed to improve ourselves in many ways, even if the end product isn't exactly award winning in nature, so here's my random post:

and sits down on my feet,
Licks his paws in the sunshine,
Then looks up at me,
Sharing summer with my dog's the best that it can be.
