Relief!

I don't know if it's the laser-engraved snowflakes or not, but last night a coastal breeze reached our house and we were able to turn off the AC and open the windows. This morning it was a refreshing 60 degrees outside, that deliciously cool breeze still around to caress my skin and soothe my heat-stressed soul as I did chores. Later in the morning Brian and I saddled up our mounts and went for a ride; it was heating up but not nearly as much as the first part of the week. I think we'll live. :-)

Ready for some random shots taken this week? These don't fit any theme or title, I just like them. The first is Dinah's eyes, the second is a detail on shiny-clean Jackson, and the third is the incredible metallic sheen of Sammy's neck. Handiworks of our Creator . . .
That's it for now at . . .

Love your pictures. You are lucky to have the coolness. We are still in tripple digits here in Buckley Wa. No end to the heat until after the weekend so I hear. Ugh...

Oh, wonderful . . . cool breezes and horses. Perfect together.

Oh, I'm jealous. It's still way too hot here - next door to shadow mountain jacobs in SE Auburn.

I don't envy the heat you are dealing with, but we are on the other end of the spectrum. It has been the second coolest July on record and we have had more than our share of rain.I am loving the cooler temps (and not running the air) but the gardens look terrible, it hasn't been hot enough to get anything growing properly :(.

Just be thankful you have a/c! I sure wish we did! :)
