My bedraggled and holey old shoes finally passed over these well-worn old cow trails for the last time. These new brown Keens, waiting in the sidelines, were ready to be called out to continue on. I notice from these pictures that my summer tanned legs are almost as brown as the new shoes. It has been one heck of a long hot summer, for sure. Millie and I are ready for some jacket weather.
The new journal is filling up with the oh-so-many fun adventures here on the hill. Why, I even made a sketch on one page of the new shoes. I can't afford to miss any opportunity for there are still lots and lots of pages waiting to be filled. But I am enjoying it and learning oh so much.
Weekly chores have now become adventures to record. It was the perfect opportunity to post these Basic Rules for Clotheslines. I have lived these from childhood to the present and wouldn't think of breaking a single one...well except for the one about never hanging a shirt by the shoulders. Those little peaks on the shoulders will never be noticed, do you think? (Actually, I don't hang our shirts and dresses by the shoulder; only did that for a better picture.)
