Summer on the Porch ~ Carole's Giveaway


We're resting under the trees on these
very hot Summer days

Poor Zeke's trying to stay cool too


I thought I'd share some photos of Zeke
on the porch. This is what he does while
I work on the porch. I've been loading photos
to my petite store and speaking of porches,
Polly and I have been working on Porch Magazine
(or trying!). Why is everything harder in the Summer?
Well, work wise that is!

What have you been doing over the Summer?
I know I plan on running through
the front sprinklers tonight :)


Also, if you haven't heard...

Carole is having a giveaway
for her 100th post

It's fantastic, just click below to read all about it!




Au revoir for now~
(stay cool!)

Summer passes so fast while I seem to move in slow motion! We've been getting ready for Miss Bella to come home which she did this past Saturday. I think I am ready for a laydown with Zeke on the porch if he doesn't mind sharing!

Hi Tracie,
It seems so long since I've visited you. Zeke is doing just what I wish I were doing at this very moment. I love your porch! That little angel plaque is so cute. I know what you mean about summer. I don't get things done vert fast and I'm falling further behind by the day
Hugs,
June

Ahhh...every time I see Zeke, I just get a smile on my face...he is just too darn cute...and so is your porch.

We've had our first really hot and humid day here. I stayed inside with the air conditioner on! Our dogs really feel it, too. Lots of panting!

Thank you Tracie for the lovely mention.
I'm sitting here faning myself as I write this. This is the hottest day so far. Zeke looks so cute lying their on the porch. Our cats have been lying around in the shade too just trying to relax...then again that's usually what they do anytime.
I get so much less done in the Summer too.
Thanks again,
Off to pack my bags and get ready for our big junking getaway!!!
xo,
Carole

Stay cool!!!

What a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the Summer.
Zeke is lovely and dogs do need to lie down in a shady place, in the warmer weather.
good luck with getting your projects finished and I hope it cools down a little for you.

Enjoy your week
Hugs
Carolyn

alicew said...

Aww...poor Zeke...hope he is staying as cool as possible! Your porch is so dreamy...I just love when you share photos of it!
Summer is surly shipping away isn't it??? Thanks for sharing the giveaway...can't wait to go check it out...

We all have heat-avoidance strategies here, too! Raja the dog hides on the cool tiled floor under the empty fireplace. Chanel the cat avoids the house althgether and becomes an outdoor cat who only visits for meals. The boys go in the pool and we do dog walking and hot meals in the evening when it begins to cool down. It's a shock for a British family to adapt to French heat!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

HI TRACIE! It is so nice to see you again! Zeke looks well! You must be having such a heat wave out there...we still have had a cooler than normal summer. Please come by when you can. Give Mr. Zeke a kiss on the nose for me!!! Anita

Hi Tracy!

Your porch looks so peaceful and comfortable. Such a great place to doze off and dream of cold lemonade and cool breezes. Zeke looks so totally relaxed.

Hugs, sherry

Petit Coterie said...

It has been so hot and humid I think Zeke has the right idea, I may join him soon. Running through the sprinklers sounds like a great idea.

xo, Michelle

Paula said...

Dear Tracie,

Your front porch is gorgeous! It looks like such a relaxing and peaceful place to be! Oh, Zeke is so sweet!!!! Give him a big hug and kiss from Pearl and I! We have been staying indoors as the heat and humidity of the south has been extreme all summer. I am ready for Autumn and ready to work in my garden! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Thank you for the link to the giveaway.

Love, Paula

Deb said...

Zeke has the right idea - enjoying Summer afternoons napping on the porch :-)

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

I love front porches and Zeke is adorable, love him too!

Les Cotrions said...

Oh Tracie your photos are fantastic! Your dog is the expression of the sufference because of the high temperature! What can we do?? Try to relax! All my creative projects are in my mind now! At the first rain I'll be operative again!
Big hugs!
Vale

Jacque said...

Running thru the water sprinklers sound like a good idea...wait on me!
