From Glory to Gloom and Back

     I meant to post this Sunday, but the blog got too lengthy.  It has been so hot here in Oklahoma, and Honey and I have been struggling with the heat.  Not being able to walk as much is a real bummer for both of us.  Fortunately, Hannah at Paved By Pawprints came to the rescue with these homemade dog toys.  I made some for Honey to help her with the boredom of being cooped up inside so long.
     That said, Sunday early morning proved to be a real treat.  Cooler with a bit of breeze.  So, we went the half block to the park.

The walking trail is a mile around the perimeter.  What a glorious morning.  It was a lovely time alone to soak in all God's grandeur - a time of refreshment after a busy, hot week.

Just thought this was a fun pic!

Midway on our walks is Honey's favorite part  of the park - the cement picnic table - a cool place to watch the other dogs and their humans.

     So much for the glory!  Today it rained.  Rainy days are so depressing for me and Honey too.  We can't walk.  Rats!  
     But, when I sat down to do this post and saw these pictures, it reminded me that this is only temporary ( I'm so impatient). God still loves us.  I don't have to go to the garden and eat worms.
There will be more beautiful mornings and lovely, long walks in the park.

So I hope you all have a glorious week despite the weather,


  1. That first photo is just gorgeous! I do really like the second one too, very creative! So glad you guys could get out and about! Although the rain sucks (and seems to last forever) the sunshine does return! I did consider posting a photo of a rainbow and stormy clouds behind it, on my blog the other day. After it had been raining, the beautiful big rainbow appeared in the sky!

    Thanks for the shout out, Kareen so glad you guys could beat the heat!

    1. Thanks Hannah. I hope you took some pictures of that rainbow and will post them sometime.


I would love to hear from you. And I'll respond as soon as possible.
