Another week has passed. A rather uneventful one for us, and that can be a very good thing. Traffic is much reduced as we enjoy a brief respite between the summer tourists and the leaf peepers. We feel as if we have our town back for a while.
Lucy is pretty much back to normal although she has a new routine. Her water dish is downstairs and I wanted to make certain she was drinking enough when she was taking the antibiotic. So I got a little bowl and filled it with cool water from the refrigerator when she came inside. In addition to providing cool water, the refrigerator filters the water as well. Lucy loves it. Now, whenever she comes in from a walk or break, she stands in front of the refrigerator door waiting for me to get her some of that cool refreshing water. Yes, she has us trained all right.
You most often see Lucy lying among several pillows. But she doesn't always nap with her pillows. There is another bed and sometimes she decides to snooze there sans pillows, with her head lowered to the floor.
Victorian-era writer Samuel Butler (best known for The Way of all Flesh) provides us with two appropriate quotes for today.
"He that complies against his will is of his own opinion still."
"I believe that he was really sorry that people would not believe he was sorry that he was not more sorry."
And from motivational speaker and entrepreneur Jim Rohn:
"We must all suffer from one of two pains; the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons."
|And from Claire London:|
"I have learned that sometimes "sorry" is not enough.
Sometimes you actually have to change."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE.
LOOK UP AT THE SKY MORE OFTEN
ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT
THE MOON IS FULL
