We took Kubla to the Minnehaha dog park on Sunday. This place is awesome – it’s quite a hike through the woods, then you get to the off-leash area, which is a huge stretch of river where the dogs can play in the water. Kubla definitely is more comfortable going into the water, tho he still won’t go very deep.
Kubla isn’t very fast, and he knows it. While the other dogs were madly chasing tennis balls and launching themselves into the river to go after huge logs, Kubla spent a lot of time “chasing” tree branches. The ones that were still attached to the trees. He also likes to pounce on leaves. I think that’s what was happening here…
He did find it fun to chase a stick Josh was tossing for him, as long as the stick wasn’t thrown more than three feet or so.
Ok, so it took me a week to get around to writing this…
Last weekend, our friends Dani and Jaime were here for a final visit before they relocate to Stockholm, Sweden. Plans are already in the works for a Summer Solstice trip next year.
As anyone who knows me well can attest, August means tomatoes, which means I don’t stop talking about gazpacho. I will spare you the recipe this time. If you would like it, see last year.
Too hot to turn on the oven. Bread gets baked on the grill.
Tomato peeling goddess
Hard work on top, party in the bowl.
This loaf didn't actually make it to the dinner table. We ate it too fast.
Cucumber rosemary cocktail. Gotta stay hydrated.
Salmon. Garnish. Bread loaf #2.
Kubla is 6 months old today.
He weighs 66 pounds.
And, just for reference…
