Those dog days of August have sure been good to us this year. The temps have been in the 80s and low 90s for most of the month and rain has been scattered through out. The flower garden is still looking good and the tomato garden is winding down. We are mulching and clearing out weeds as fast as we can getting ready for fall and winter.

Our project for this weekend is to get Bella's little house painted inside and trim painted outside. Replace roof shingles and fix the porch all without our little helper. Wish us luck!
