Hibernating

It's still hot here in Northeast Pennsylvania.  We are praying for rain today, tomorrow, and Sunday as it is exceedingly dry and the plants are just burning up at this point.  I'm not on the computer much because we were told at the beginning of the week to conserve electricity (boo hoo for me--no clothes washing either :D ).  I have been sewing a great deal trying to complete all the blocks for Nana's Memory quilt.  Nana will be 90 in August and I want it to be done in time for her birthday.

On the puppy front, Teddy and Paddie are pretty content staying indoors.  Once in a while, Teddy goes out and barks at everything and then comes in and rests from all the exertion.  Seamus is more challenging.  This morning we played regular catch for a few moments before I became concerned for his temperature.  Mostly we play "dogcer" a canine version of soccer that we play on the side of the house.  Seamus throws the ball to me, I kick and he tries to keep the ball from getting past him.  It entertains both of us (we need so little) and the side walkway is usually more shady (although we don't dare do this midday).

I'll catch up on everyone's blog as soon as this passes and hope everyone is doing well! 
STAY COOL!

I sure hope things cool off soon for you. Sunny and I play dogcer too but with a real soccer ball. I'm in trouble with the vet though. She asked if he chews on rocks! I said no but he loves fetching his soccer ball. Who knew a ball could ware down his teeth?

I don't remember if I commented since I got your card. It was so cute!Please tell Helena I loved the work she did on it!
Hugs,
Dawn

Mmmm, I hear you about the heat! My back porch thermometer reads 101* in the shade at 4pm today. The air is too hot to breathe! I should be used to it but hot is hot anyplace you live. My poodle kids have been laying low and sleeping days away. Thank goodness the nights cool off enough to play. Guess I should get some pics and blog about it!
Oh, should I mention maybe when your temps cool down you could go hunting for a nice old treadle machine?
