We've had a rather quiet week here on the mountain. For several weeks we had workmen of one sort or the other and now they've all finished and gone. The days have been bright and sunny with thunderstorms most evenings.
Lucy gets to go for a run by the lake nearly every morning. She loves the freedom of running off lead. After she runs and runs, she walks along the lake looking and sniffing. Sometimes she looks as if she is stalking some prey but we have yet to actually see what it is that grabbed her attention.
Sneaking up on something she never finds and we never see
This park by the lake will be filled with families in a few hours
But for now it belongs to Lucy
Lucy is not at all concerned with thunder and lightning. She loves to sit with us on the porch and watch the storms. When we come inside she lies on her bed looking out at the rain falling on the deck until she starts to snooze again.
And so the dog's life goes on
A pretty good life if you ask me
This weekend is expected to bring us some very hot temperatures. When it's 90 in the mountains, it feels even hotter than 90 in much warmer places of the south. Needless to say, we will stay inside except for the early morning hours. At least it will be cooler then.
Today's quote is a familiar one by James Russell Lowell:
And what is so rare as a day in June?
Then, if ever, come perfect days;
Then Heaven tries earth if it be in tune
And over it softly her warm ear lays.
I hope heaven lays softly on your June days.
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY WEEKEND WITH WARM AND PERFECT JUNE DAYS
