“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.”

-Robert Louis Stevenson

Banner Forest is 10 miles of networked trails. It is extremely easy and usually likely that you will get lost at some point. Unless you have an awesome dog with you, like Miss Lucy Lui. Without fail, she will find her way back to the car, usually taking us back the way we came through the maze. However this particular Tuesday, she took us back an entirely different way than we had come, which had us worried for a minute.  And yet somehow, we ended up back at the car, safe and sound. *sighs* Good dog.

My Days of Late July 9, 2010

“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.”  ~Sam Keen

With this heat coming on finally, I have found laziness has crept in. My days lately have consisted a lot of this scene…….

There is a side of the house which remains incredibly cool in the summer, which I find extremely refreshing. I took advantage of this yesterday. Nothing better than a blanket on cool, freshly cut grass!

My view from the blanket, lying on my back…….

My companions, enjoying the cool of the shade……

Lucy, rolling in the cool grass….

How do you keep cool in this weather? What lazy things do you enjoy in the summertime? Do share!
