What lovely sunny days we’ve been having in Portland!  I’m still pretending it is summer, even though it is cold, since it doesn’t feel like we’ve had the rain and overcast days that normally grace us in December and January.  Our backyard feels like it just had a makeover with the new fence and gate that went in this week.  I’m so happy with how it looks!  Addie and I are enjoying being outside and even lit up the fire pit one afternoon for a winter picnic.  I love the picture  of a bored Addie, ready for me to stop taking pictures and play frisbee.
