We built our house with a very large den. It has heavy furniture and is an ideal place for the dogs to romp a bit indoors. They have a little tug-of-war every morning and wrestle for a while. When Lucy tires of the game, she takes the tug toy, flipping it over her nose.
Often she will grab another toy and make a new one with it surrounded by the tug.
In the absence of rain, the Golden Girls would much prefer to be outdoors. They run in the woods, gather sticks and often just explore the sights and scents.
Lucy is our sight hound.
And Ellie is our scent hound. Each morning brings new scents of the animals who share our woods.
Lucy pauses to watch Ellie. She is deciding whether or not to join her.
And every evening they lie together until bedtime.
April is almost gone. We had a good freeze last night. Yes, a couple of days after I planted my little herb boxes and we put out the summer baskets. We huddled them together on the deck and covered them with a sheet. They are fine and today we might reach 70. The weekend will be much cooler than normal with lots of rain. Good weather for reading, knitting, or catching up on some recorded television.
Today's quote is from Lemony Snicket:
"At times the world may seem to be an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough, and what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey."
And the first steps of the journey always begin today. Grab it and run.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYONE
WHATEVER STEPS YOU ARE TAKING!
