A Busy Summer and a Delicious Dessert

We've had a wonderful summer entertaining, golfing and traveling!  Blogging has been on my mind but I've not sat long enough to complete a post...until now.  I hope your summer has been enjoyable and that you were able to do some fun things outdoors!

We are really enjoying our new back porch (J's grilling area).  We've spent a lot of time entertaining and just enjoying the warm weather there.  I especially like J doing most of the cooking outside!  I make salads and such indoors and he does the rest.  
It's a plan that works great for us!!

(Please don't look at my sad plants, we were gone a few weeks and they were neglected a bit!)

We are also enjoying our new home!  
Last weekend the front sidewalk and garage approach were poured and now people can actually come in our front door!  We will finish up the landscaping before winter.
We took a trip to see our son who is living in Montana.  Our daughter and SIL went for a few days, too. I'll have several posts about that in the next coming weeks.  We are heading back sometime this fall so J can do some camping/hunting with the Favorite Son!  I'll be doing some reading and a few projects while they're doing their thing.

We also have a new addition to the family, Ranger!
 He's a Border Collie, like his 'big sister' Sallie.  She's taken to him quite well and they have a lot of fun playing, running and, unfortunately digging in some of my new landscaping.  Thank goodness I don't have a lot out just yet.  :)
It's hard to get a good picture of them, they are always on the move!  
Precious Daughter took this picture of Ranger his first day at his new home.

We're in love with this little guy

I have been doing some cooking this summer and something I made the other day was so easy and so delicious, it just had to be shared!
The recipe for this easy summery Peach Galette is HERE.  Believe me, it is easy and SO delicious with Ina Garten's Vanilla Ice Cream!.
I'm hoping to get back into the posting mood. It's such fun to share our lives and ideas with good friends!  
Enjoy these last days of summer!

I'm joining these parties full of good ideas and inspiration:
