It’s Friday!

It’s Friday and virtual classes are over for the week! Pickles and Rufus are going to the Farmer’s Market with Mom tomorrow. Rufus loves the drive and Pickles loves to shop for fresh veggies and fruits with Mom.

Virtual classes

Pickles is doing well with her virtual classes so far. Rufus loves having her home even if she is studying most of the day. Doggies sleep a lot anyway and his snoozing is in his bed by her side:) He is a happy puppy!

Labor Day Weekend

The Pickering family has been invited to a three-family cook-out for Labor Day weekend. Pickles is excited about it because she will see her best friend, Sarah, and Rufus will be excited once he sees Cookie, Sarah’s dog! Everyone will social distance and have a great time:) The weather looks like it will be perfect!

Swim time!

Pickles and Rufus are enjoying the hot weather this week by visiting Will, her next-door neighbor. Rufus loves hanging out with Houston, Will’s dog, while Pickles and Will play in the pool. Lots of sunscreen will be needed!

Garden vegetables

The Pickering family garden produced lots of good veggies this summer. Their cucumbers are no longer producing and the tomatoes are nearing the end of their life cycle but the okra is still going strong. Mom and Pickles plan to plant swiss chard and arugula for the fall. Fresh vegetables are the best!

The upcoming school year

Later today Pickles and Mom are going to prepare a space in the dining room for Pickles to do her homeschooling. Then they are going shopping for school supplies. Mom will now work a flex schedule and soon the new school year will begin virtually.


Pickles is helping Dad and Mom move the lawn furniture to the shed in preparation for the upcoming storm. Rufus is being a good boy by staying out of the way. Everyone is prepared! Stay safe:)

Swimming fun!

Pickles and Rufus are playing outside all weekend because it looks like we have some story weather coming next week. Will, Pickle’s neighbor invited her to swim tomorrow and Sunday. Rufus will play with Will’s dog, Houston, and maybe he will take a snooze under the big oak tree in Will’s backyard while they swim:)…

Hot summer days

It is quite hot outside today so Pickles and Rufus played outside this morning. They are having lunch now and if Rufus has his way, they will take a long nap in the afternoon!
