We Love Lucy

Labor Day weekend is here already.  Summer is truly planning to leave us.  But not without some much warmer weather than we usually expect.  This past week has been quite warm.  But we do get a nice cool down at night so early mornings are a gift.

Lucy loves the cooler morning weather but is not at all fond of the hotter mid-day temperatures.

Running and grinning

Lucy likes the air-conditioned house when it's hot outside.  Surprisingly enough, she still loves to lie in the sun. Actually, I suppose that's not too surprising since our house is as cool in the summer as it is in winter.

 Her eyes are not closed because of the bright sun.
She is actually snoozing with her head up.

Our senses are numbed by the pervasive campaign rhetoric that surrounds us.  So we seek comfort in the rhetoric of others who speak with more reason.

Thus, today's quote is from the late Steve Jobs:

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma---which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
 Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important---have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."

I'm sure Lucy is looking forward to the cool beauty of fall. It's the most beautiful seasonal transition. Lovely quote. We are living in such interesting and challenging times.

Lovely pictures of Lucy ...

I do like the quote from Steve Jobs and also ...
we do need to reach out and help those who are suffering and there are still too many in this world of ours that are. Sure there is a lot we may not agree with but many who are suffering are children - we need to follow our hearts.

All the best Jan

Love your photos! We had a break in the heat a couple of weeks ago, and the dogs loved it, as did I. I'm looking forward to the cooler days of fall, but have to admit, that what comes after. :-)

I hope you have a good weekend!

A great quote and much needed these days.

I love seeing Lucy snoozing with her head up, in a sun puddle!!!!

I agree about the campaign. It's been hard to believe the rhetoric so far. I'm hoping that the outrageous candidates get out of the race so we don't have to listen to them anymore. But, I doubt that wish will come true...

Thanks for your comments, everyone.

Robin - Yes, Lucy love the fall weather. And she really loves running in the fallen leaves.
