A Quick Summer Update

Mr. Tux and I are having a whirlwind summer. We are busy with work and not a whole lot else. When I am not busy with work, I have been getting some time in quilting, spinning, and knitting. I am participating in the Tour de Fleece on Ravelry. The basic idea is that you spin every day of the Tour de France. I figured why not. What better way to combine my love of fiber and cycling than with a spinning challenge. I am also doing a ton of knitting. Mr. Tux and I were able to get a few days off to spend in the San Juan Islands. What a wonderful time relaxing together. Here are some photos of what we have been up to in the last few months.

Sun Buddies

Apollo and Tuxley are extremely attached to each other. It is very common to see them playing and napping together. They also fight and tattle on each other trying to get the other in trouble. One of their favorite things to fight over and grudgingly share is napping space in the sun. I was fortunate enough to have my camera on hand this past week and managed to capture some adorable pictures of them.

{This Moment}

A Soule Mama Inspired Ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor, and remember. If you are inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.
