a picture post

This is a three minute photo post - they say a picture says a thousand words - so here goes
 Paul and Alpine chilling - can I hear "one man and his dog?"

Dogs chatting - they spend a lot of time hanging out together which makes me happy and at the same time wonder what they are potentially plotting... Dukie likes to chew odd things like my very expensive Laura Ashley curtains and the shower curtain.. hes a doofus. Alpine just likes to share his fur around and trail water through the house at every opportunity.

This is one of Dukes happy places. He often hangs out up on this deck even if its stinking hot and he ends up panting in the heat, its a dogs life.
 We did some artistic renos lately. These chairs were painstakingly painted by me and let me tell you its NOT a good plan to decide to paint these outdoor, full of nooks and crannies chairs with indoor paint just to "use it up". It entailed primer - headache, paint of at least two coats - more of a headache and then a varnish - major headache.. but they look pretty good. They just took up weeks of time.
 My kitchen diner - this area is crying out for a coffee bar. Pinterest is my friend.
 Our summer front room, its hot so we spend next to no time in here but its sweet and it has some awesome palm tree cushions on the couches.
This is where we spend our indoor TV watching moments, our summer family room, This room doesnt get a look in all winter but I live and die in it when its hot as it leads out to the deck and is all round relaxing.
 Lily at the beach, this child is my most precious smallest one, at age 8 shes growing up waaaay too fast for my liking.
My Chloe - my so very deep and cautious first baby with a strong love for horses - shes got that from her mama. We have currently lost her most weekdays to the barn where she hangs out all day and rides. More pics and updates to follow with her progress.
Shes also a bit of a beach bod too, just like her little sister. My baby!
 And this is me these days, getting older and maybe wiser, hopefully wiser. I am certainly working on it.
And this is Ace, hes new in my life. I have ridden him a few times and we get on well, watch this space as horses are well and truly back in my life. I feel so very fortunate.
