It's been a pretty hot summer out in Alberta, so I know these will be much appreciated to keep my darling grandson, Brady, whose 7th birthday is tomorrow, cool as a .... snowman while he sleeps. :-) He loves Olaf. I have some fabric left over, think he'll get a pillow slip, but I'll have to get creative because there's not enough to make a simple pillow slip. Oh darn, get creative! ;-) This is one of my goals for the third quarter of the FAL at On the Windy Side. My entire list is here. One down 4 to go!
In other kid-related news, if you haven't heard of brave, adorable little Zion, you need to read this link. He got new hands and has made medical history. What a child. I just want to squish him!
This was on the sidewalk the other day when I was on my daily walk with Rocco:
I mean, come on! This melted my heart. Oh if only adults were as open-hearted and loving and non-judgmental as children... What a message. It made my day. I'd love to meet the child who wrote it
Speaking of melting heart, (and ya it's finally southern Ontario summer humid heat and I'm loving it. Bring it!) Naala had a good itch, or three on her walk. Happy Rottie puppy.

A little later, in Lakeside Park, I spied this beauty of a fungus, at least 20", maybe more, in all directions. This tree suffered the loss of a limb during a bad storm in Spring that saw several big old trees lose limbs or their lives. It makes me so sad when that happens to these huge old sentinels, but, sigh, it is a part of life.
