A Little Birdie Told Me

What an exciting day!   Connor had to work today, so the puppies and I spent the day by ourselves at the lake.  It is the first day in a while that hasn't had a rainy start.  Our dogs have been stuck inside and getting a bit restless with all the rain.  I was determined not to waste a second of sunshine.  The first thing we did was go for a swim.   I waded in up to my knees and decided that was far enough.   I spent the next hour throwing a stick for the puppies.  They get so excited about a stupid piece of wood.  It was free... the dog toy you spend $10 on.. doesn't get this much love.  

They were still just full of energy, so we went for a 2 mile walk.   We returned home to find our neighbor's dog swimming.  It was too much to bear, to watch another dog having that much fun...so we were compelled to joined them.   After many hours of play they rested a bit in the sun.  They woke up full of energy and ready to do it all again.   I took them for another long swim and that stick is still their favorite toy.  Thankfully, Connor was home.  I was in desperate need of backup.  I was at least able to tire myself out.   He grilled steak, made pasta and peas.  YUMMY.   The dogs settled under the table, while we gobbled up dinner.   Finally they were tired... I had tamed the beasts!  I couldn't have been more wrong.  They heard another dog nearby.  Willet (our yellow lab) ran out from the under the table to investigate, her leash tangled in the legs.   The entire table, Connor, and me following behind.  I ended up on the ground, with a dish or two. What a mess!  I thought the entire thing was funny.  I gave it my best shot.  Hopefully the sunshine will continue and I'll give it another try tomorrow.

I forgot my camera, but here is a photo from this spring.

I hope you are finding laughter in your holiday week!

Oh.. I also have a card to share... this is from last month's Card Lover's Class.  I hope to get caught up with some posts this week.  Each month I try to come up one card that involves no coloring.  I find it to be one of the most challenging cards for me to make each month.   However, I like the challenge.   No copics today... just ink.
