Here he is, folks...swimming with Maggie!

Maggie came up for the weekend last week and took Teddy for his first swim...

He was eager to get in the pool...she held him the whole time, as he's too little to be able to get out by himself...

And he gave her a kiss for thanks!

The last 3 weeks have been busy with "Baby Teddy"...how reminiscent of the days when
you put the baby down for a nap...

then agonize over whether to take a nap yourself, or go to the studio to recover more outdoor cushions...(I recovered the cushions...)

We temporarily fenced in the patio off our bedroom so we have a place for us to sit, and a big playpen for Teddy! He's learned and loves to retrieve, which is great for exercising the little guy...

(That's a rope thingy that is almost as big as he is!)

Micmac is slowly warming to the dog, occasionally playing chase; meanwhile he is enjoying the almost daily Amazon delivery.

There's been very little dressmaking going on, although I am half way through one item,
waiting on interfacing and interlining. 

I did do a little cooking; this is one of my favorite recipes using fresh figs...Chicken with Roasted Figs

and of course the tomatoes and corn are at their peak, so we've had this a lot
lately...Corn and Tomato Salad.

I have a painful arch from plantar fasciitis, so I'm not walking these days...no boot this time,
thank goodness, but I need to get back to walking before I "grow" out of my Paris wardrobe.

We are way too close to the "Rey" fire, burning in the back country...our skies often have a strange yellow-brown hue, especially in the late afternoon. So scary...

Hopefully, my next post will be a little less Teddy, a little more fun in the studio...
