What can I say?

What can I say? I have been racking my brain the last couple of days about what I can blog about. The truth is, the last few days there hasn't been anything going on. I've been washing windows (boring) and doing some general cleaning which also is not very exciting. No knitting or cooking to speak of. But with Sophie arriving in less than a week, I am considering this the calm before the storm!!

One thing I have done is to set K's doll house back up in her room. This is a house that was built for her when she was younger and into American Girl Dolls. (There is furniture and accessories for it that I will be putting back in after Labor Day weekend.) When K grew out of her doll phase, we loaned it to some friends with younger girls. For the past several years it has been covered in plastic out in Steve's shed. I thought it would be fun to get it set up again. I'll post another picture after I have it completed.

In the meantime, I will give you a Sophie update.
She is 7 weeks old today and getting ready to come home!! Our friends will be bringing her home with them after Labor Day weekend (Julie's dad is the one who has the pups and they are getting one as well), so Sophie will be arriving late Monday afternoon September 1st. In the picture, Sophie is the one on the right. She how well behaved she is already?? And already a good poser for pictures which will be nice for future posts!!

Sumo keeps going to the basket we have on the floor with all of her little toys in. You have to wonder what he's thinking..... Pretty sure he has no clue!! But how can he not love this sweet little face????

Well, off to plan the menu for the weekend and get a little more cleaning done. I will be heading to Mpls in the next couple of days for the funeral of my dear friend Cheryl's mom. She passed away last evening. My heart is heavy for my dear friend as she walks through yet another dark valley. (Her daughter Lindsay is one who we are running our marathon in memory of!) I love you Cheryl - my thoughts and prayers are with you!

Until Next time....

No one can resist a lab's face. This was Gwen when she was a puppy. I still need one of Indie, he had that adorable chocolate lab face that you see on cards and calendars. Hmm maybe when my parents get home they can send me one. Congrats on the new member of your family. Mac has put a spring in Gwen and Indie's pace, so I bet Sophie will do the same. It's great having a companion.

Cute dollhouse. My kiddo would go crazy over it. :)
Sophie is so cute and I'm looking forward to seeing pics of her on the blog.

Sophie is coming soon! You must be so excited. I'll bet she and Sumo will be a riot together.
The dollhouse is beautiful. I love the little stove.

Oh, I could look at Sophie and Sumo pictures all day long! Who can resist a puppy? And, Sumo is our older friend! :-)

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your good friend, Cheryl's mom! Poor Cheryl! My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you! :-)
