When we get home we spend a bit more time with them outside.
Here Lucy trots along the walk.
Rats! Ellie saw me with the camera. If she notices the camera she automatically sits and poses. Nothing natural about this.
A bird flies past and catches Lucy's attention. She loves to watch the birds.
Exhausted after some active play, the girls relax. Ellie selected the bed first and there is absolutely no room for Lucy. That never stops her even though there is another identical bed only a few feet away. She pushes and makes a place for herself.
Lucy simply loves to snuggle next to Ellie even if it means contorting her body or (more likely) using Ellie for a pillow.
While we were outside, a little hummingbird decided to have a snack. I can't resist taking photographs of them during the waning days of their presence. Oh, I will miss them.
This week is National Banned Book Week. If you missed most of it, you still have the weekend to go to your local library and check out a banned book. Find a list of "controversial" authors and books and pick up a few. You don't have to read them this weekend...just check them out.
Our thoughts are with the people suffering throughout this planet we share, most especially those in the Pacific Islands affected by recent tsunamis. Looking at the devastation should make you grateful for what you have and what kind of life you enjoy. So this weekend, get out there and enjoy it.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND. OCTOBER TRULY BRINGS AUTUMN TO US AND THE PROMISE OF WONDERFUL DAYS AHEAD.
