It's a beautiful day

The sun is shining and there's a nice breeze blowing. If I could just get away from the sound of someone's leaf blower, it'd be PERFECT!!

I am putting the last minute touches on my lesson plans for today. I have my long teaching day on Thursdays, so will have to wait until this evening to get to my Gratitude journal sketches. I'd love to get two done this evening, though, so I can slowly catch up and have a drawing for every day of the month. I started on the 4th, so I am a few days behind.

My pug is snoring next to my feet, resting his head on a plastic hanger. I am crazy about him, but he is a bit of a weirdo (my daughter's description, not mine!). He chews plastic hangers like they were Nylabones or something. It is pretty funny, watching him trying to negotiate small spaces while carrying a hanger with him. He's an odd duck, but we love him nonetheless. There is a long story that I might share with you sometime about how we acquired this pug (our THIRD dog---- yep, we are crazy dog people here). We weren't looking for him, but he certainly found us and weasled his way into our dog-lovin' hearts (the little weirdo).

Anyway, if you like dogs, pop on over and check out my dog site sometime. You can find the link on the right sidebar of my blog. I'll check back in later tonight.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. And for the YouTube link to Sophie swimming - she is a hoot! Just loved seeing that tail wagging the entire time. Sammie would be right there with her in the pool given a chance. He dives for rocks in the creek here.
They are something else - that's for sure!
