My husband does most of the dog walking, but Wednesdays are my responsibility. Every Wednesday, my husband does hard labor volunteering to repair trails, dig trenches, and build bridges in Pisgah National Forest. He comes home exhausted, sweaty and filthy and very, very happy.
This past Wednesday morning the girls and I got caught in a downpour! When we were about half a mile from our house, it started pouring rain...not a light misty rain...a real downpour of those giant drops. Wearing no jacket, I was absolutely drenched when I got home. I arrived home dripping wet with two equally wet Golden Retrievers. Breakfast always follows the morning walk and the girls were not happy that I took the time to change into dry clothing before feeding them.
With the weather and our busy schedules, the girls have spent most days doing what they do best...just hanging around in the air conditioning.
As soon as Ellie decides where to lie, Lucy immediately squeezes herself in and uses Ellie for a pillow. I don't think Ellie likes it, but she never challenges Lucy and rarely gets up and moves. It is never Ellie who lies down next to Lucy.
I think they both look incredibly bored in this photograph and I often wonder just what they are thinking.
Ellie was not around to use for a pillow, so Lucy used the rung of a hard chair. I can't believe that could be comfortable.
We would probably all do well to follow Lucy's example...make yourself comfortable using whatever you have available.
I hope this is a great weekend for you. Summer is speeding past despite our best efforts to slow it down. Make the most of the weekends we have remaining.
Have a safe and wonderful weekend, full of love and joy.
