Fun in the Sun

 Aug 3, 2011

Yesterday we filled up the dog pool.  That dog pool has been a good $10 investment.  This is it's third summer, and it has been out all winter as well.  It's become a permanent fixture.  It doesn't get loads of use, but Jake and Luna sure like to go and lie in it if they are hot.
Luna has a thing about hoses.  She likes to knock them out of whatever they are in, I guess so she can get at the water spray.  So if you are filling up a water bucket, and let your mind wander, before you know it she had flipped out the hose and your leg is soaked, or worse, your rubber boot is full of water.

Although you can't tell here, that spray was shooting up and bouncing on the deck right at my feet.

A cool drink and a cool bath.
Just what a girl needs after a hot game of soccer.

And here's today's photos. 

Saw a lot of these today....canning jars and lids 
Made enough jams and jellies today to fill at least seven of these boxes.  
Green concord grape jelly
Red concord grape jelly
Black currant jelly 
Red currant jelly
Quince jelly 
Mild pepper jelly 
Ginger pear jam.
