We thought we were in for some sunny days without any rain. Yesterday dawned bright and gorgeous. Finally we were having some typical summer weather. And then at 1:00 the clouds came out of nowhere and poured rain down upon us. Heavy rain. As in two and a half inches in one hour! Fortunately when the rain stopped, it stopped. The rest of the day was beautiful and we are enjoying a sunny day today.
Our Lucy loves to look out the windows. The dining room window makes a perfect spot to make certain no one is walking on her road. She periodically "patrols" the house, looking out the windows in all directions. (And yes, she must stick her nose on the window to look out.)
In spite of a long walk, Ellie flies down the driveway to greet me.
She looks a lot like Lucy in last week's post.
Lucy love to snooze with her head on the chair rail. Surprisingly enough, she never uses my chair or my husband's chair.
This is the last weekend in August. Schools are opening their doors once again and the tourists will leave us for a while. But they will be back to see the leaves.
Today's quote is appropriate for our time:
"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it."
The struggle to support our freedom these days is challenging and at times fatiguing. And yet, if we do not respond to the call to action, many more freedoms will be lost. So we keep up the faith and trudge onward.
HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
