Rain brings decisions about when to take the girls for walks. We seem to choose the slack just before another downpour. And the downpour starts the minute we get past the driveway. So everyone comes in soaked. We use a lot of dog towels during those days and the girls have fluffy hair afterwards. (The term "dog towel" is used for the old frayed bath towels we have used over the years. We don't buy special towels for them.) While they seem to enjoy watching the rain, they definitely do not enjoy being outside in the rain. They play indoors but mostly they sit and watch the rain, or sleep the day through.
Ellie looks out as Lucy snoozes.
Yet another photograph of Lucy using Ellie for a pillow while Ellie has been shoved under the chair.
It doesn't look any more comfortable from another angle.
It's hard to believe that more than a hundred days of 2012 are past and gone. Sunday is Earth Day so take some extra time to enjoy Mother Earth.
Two quotes this week, both from Sydney J. Harris who was a great syndicated columnist:
"Happiness is a direction, not a place."
and this timely one:
"We have not passed that subtle line between childhood and adulthood until we move from the passive voice to the active voice---that is until we stop saying "It got lost," and say, "I lost it."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
