An 11.11.11 Thank You

Please click to enlarge

This shell will always have a special place on our bookshelves. It's a memento from my Dad's Basic Training days at Parris Island.

He wrote the date on the shell. I can see him walking the shoreline of Port Royal Sound and finding this treasure as he contemplated his next steps into WWII.

I've been wanting to preserve the shell as a journal sketch for the longest time. I can't think of a better day... a more special day than today... to honor it forever :)

Dog Days of August

August in the South Carolina low country is in full force. Heat indexes daily from 101 to 108.

Grizz and Dudley prefer to sit on the screened in porch than hang out in the air conditioned house.  Thankfully the porch faces WNW and the sun's rays don't appear until very late in the day.

Favorite foods, favorite traditions. Can't think of a better way to honor this day.

Garden Clippings

Garden Clippings, originally uploaded by PJBee.
Our NY home has a new family now to experience the best house we ever lived in. We designed it, had it built, loved every inch of it only to have to give it up and move due to economic conditions. We've not lived in it for over 4 years. When we visit family in NY it hurts to see it. If we could have trucked it down to SC we surely would have!

Goodbye sweet house. I know the new family loves you and that's what I asked for.
