The cool weather seems to find an "on" button for our two dogs. They just love the crisp morning air. They are frisky during their morning walk and take off like rockets when we let them off lead to run the little trails on our property. With the windows and doors open, they can lie on the screened porch, watch the birds and wildlife and smell the wonderful scents of approaching autumn.
After all the activity, the girls are tired at the end of the day. When Ellie is tired she goes to a bed or her crate for a nap. Lucy will sleep wherever she finds herself.
Like a toddler, she sometimes falls asleep at (well, under) the table. She uses a chair rung for a pillow.
Lucy, that doesn't look very comfortable.
OK, I'll move.
That doesn't look much better to me.
Well, it's just fine for me.
Well, if you're comfortable.
Yawn...I think this will work...zzzz.
So begins the first week in September and Labor Day Weekend, the unofficial end of summer. At least for now, we have gloriously sunny days and a wonderful full moon in the evening. We have "lost" another five minutes of sunlight hours since Monday in case you are counting.
During this Labor Day Weekend, let us all be especially mindful of the unemployed in our country and around the world. Be more giving to your local food pantry or sharing house to help those who are temporarily unable to provide for their children. Donate money and school supplies, do some volunteer work, and help your fellow man.
HAVE A WONDERFUL AND FUN-FILLED WEEKEND. ENJOY YOUR LABOR DAY PICNIC, BUT DON'T FORGET WHY WE ARE CELEBRATING.
