Weekend Chit~Chat

Thank you to all who joined in for show and tell and for your sweet comments about my Little Woman treasures! Several of you asked about a tutorial and I will try to put one together soon.

Golden Rod
Yesterday morning we headed out to our favorite nature preserve. Phillip brought along his camera and captured some great photos, especially of the goldenrod that was in full bloom.

Daisy
The girls met with their Faith Keepers group to work on earning their "Survival in the Outdoors" badge.

Daisy was happy to tag along, too.

As you can see, the tiny puppy days are over.

Daisy
Daisy just turned 6 months old and while she considers herself a lap dog that loves to snuggle, she has plenty of energy to go around.

Especially when it comes to swimming! Thank you for taking a look and I hope you are having a great weekend!

Tori said...

Wow, that looks like a great time.

I love GR dogs, we have one and she also thinks she's a lap dog and loves the water.

Have a great week.

Sarah said...

I love that adorable dog! Oh how do you put those lists on your posts like on Show and Tell Friday? You know the ones where people list there posts for what they want to show? I just need to know for a post.

Sounds like you and your family had a wonderful day. Your Daisy is so beautiful. I love golden retrievers. Mine right now is a ChiPoo-chihuahua/poodle mix and my Chorizo who passed last October was a char-pei/chow. But the GR's really capture my heart. She looked to be having sooooooo much fun. Take care.

Hi Kelli
I enjoyed your pictures from the nature preserve. Daisy is gorgeous. It's been a bright day here today but we have the first frost of the season forecast for tonight.

I wanted to comment on your "Little Women" post...

Seeing the picture of that book brought back so many memories! One of my aunts bought me that book in 1961 when I was 8 years old. Seeing those pictures made me pick that out of a bookshelf where it hadn't seen the light of day for many moons! (That is how I remembered the year of purchase: from the inscription).

Thanks for reminding me of a favorite childhood memory!

Hi Kelli,
Thanks for stopping by.--Yes, family weekend gatherings are great. Looks like your family had a great outing! And the photos of your dogs are great:) Getting a little nippy up here in the north- but saw on the Dallas football game it is 85 degrees there--enjoy!

i love the pictures of daisy. she is such a cute puppy and growing up fast. my puppy turned 2 in august, still acts like a puppy, and would love to have us allow him to be a lap dog =)

the goldenrod is beautiful, too.

Jackie said...

Daisy is sure growing.

We are windy and rainy today, which is fine by me. I got to stay home after church and do some baking, reading, knitting and of course meditating on the sermon. My kind of day!

God bless.

Lisa said...

I just have to tell you that your Daisy looks just like my 5-month old golden retriever, who is also named Daisy! And I just love your website.

MyJourneyBack said...

Oh what a great outing you must have had! Thanks for sharing the photo's.
She looks like such a fun dog.
Aren't you glad we're still able to wear t-shirts! I love the weather.
Have a great week.

Marianna said...

Looks like a fun day...would you mind sharing the name of the nature area. We just relocated (we are in Allen) and I'm always interested in natural places to take the kids. Conemara is practically in our backyard, but from what I understand it is closed!

Bree said...

Kelli, you have such a lovely blog. I enjoy it very much! Thank you for sharing your delights with all of us!

gail said...

daisy has grown so much! she looks EXACTLY like our daisy when she was that age. our girl is 7 1/2 now and already getting a little gray around her muzzle. they are wonderful dogs though- so sweet and loving. great with the kids too- not to mention cute! i will have to post some pics of our girl sometime soon.
your daisy is a sweetie.

Sarah C. said...

Hi Kelli! You're invited to "My Favorite Things Monday" inspired by the Sound of Music! You sharing a picture and story of your current 'favorite thing' that cheered you up when life got you down, would be a blessing! I hope you can come! www.sarahlcc.blogspot.com It looks like you had a lot of fun over the weekend! I'm going to have to check out the Faithkeepers as my kids get older. Take care!

Carrie said...

Daisy looks so healthy and happy! She's having a great life with your family.

Michelle said...

Kelli,

Looked like a fun and beautiful day. Your dog Daisy is SOOO adorable!! Those puppy dog eyes are too cute. :)

Scott and Kerri said...

Kelli,
What a great day you had! Looks like Daisy had a great time too :)
She has grown so much!
Love Kerri

Christy Lee said...

I love Daisy! I have always loved golden retrievers, but my husband and I decided on a mastiff for our next dog. So I guess I have to wait! I love seeing the photos of Daisy growing up though...they are such wonderful family dogs!

Mommy said...

Our "puppy" is now nine months old. He too is a bundle full of energy.

I like the picture of yours swimming. Daisy is one cute dog. :)

Elena said...

I loved the picture of the goldenrod. Your puppy dog looks so sweet! When my daughter gets a little older we would love to get her a dog:)

Kelly said...

What a fun weekend! Daisy is a cutie pie!

Kathi~Lavender, Lace and Thyme said...
