The weather has been so gorgeous here lately, that though I'm ready for fall (I'm always ready for my favorite season to start), I am relishing each sun-dappled dawn.
The mornings are cool enough to put on a sweatshirt when I take Ralphie for a walk, but the sun comes out after the clouds burn away and reveal a peaceful, blue, summer sky.
Every shadow cast, means a cool place to rest for a bit on our walks. Ralphie has always enjoyed stopping on our walks, but I always propelled him forward. Now I am the one reminding him we need a bit of rest along the way ~ all this extra belly-weight makes for labored breathing. At least I know it's good practice for what is to come!
