Shooting stars.

This week, we went on a preemptive weekend camping trip to celebrate the Perseid meteor shower. Until a couple of days ago, I had never been able to spot a shooting star. In fact, from where we live among the smog and city lights, I'm lucky to even see a regular star, let alone a falling one. It was pretty incredible. The next morning, the sky was cloudless, calm and crystal clear. It's hard to believe that we were looking at the same sky the night before, only twinkling and black, with things falling out of it.

Did anyone else see a meteor? If you missed the shower's peak, I wouldn't worry. The Perseids are in town (all towns) all month long. If you can find a nice dark place, you may be able to see a few tonight.

Now, some pictures of dogs and a boy:

This weekend, we're hoping to plant our fall vegetable garden. Other plans include baking a gigantic cookie cake for a child's birthday, organizing our closets, reading this book and seeing this movie.
