How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

Dog Days

August is here and so it the hot and humid.

I know we just visited Cantigny twice in July but when I heard they were hosting the first ever dog days I had to check it out.
They had a huge section set up as an off leash play area for all the pooches. The kids loved watching the Frisbee dog demos. Eleanor Beagle was a perfect dog the entire time and she was pretty tired by the time we headed home too.

The contractors for our house project went ahead and installed the 20 windows. They'll be able to switch out the upper sashes once they arrive. It's so nice to finally have windows that open. Of course this weekend it's hot enough to have to run the air conditioning so they are closed for the moment.

Next up for house projects this week is new siding.

She is such a CUTIE! (We were beagle owners for 13 years, can you tell?) New windows and new siding? You're going to have a whole new house when it's all done! How nice!
