Fall is finally in the air in the desert. Well at least in the mornings and evenings. It’s still about 90 during the heat of the day. So I’m sitting this morning and enjoying my cup of tea listening to the birds chirping in the desert willow tree. Sounds peaceful, right?
Well, here’s the entertaining part. My standard poodle, Shadow, is still very much a bird dog. In between the chirps is a big bark and some unsuccessful jumps to get that bird. He points and is ready to pounce if only he was about 18 feet taller.
As you rest today (hopefully) remember that life is about the peaceful moments but also the entertaining ones. I’ve learned that while I rest I am reminded that my home is not normal (whatever that is). So enjoy your normal and I’ll go embrace my hopping poodle.
With inky fingers,
