All week long, I've been hoping for the feel of the sun on my face, and finally, today it happened. I'm so glad that the sun is shining on my husband's only day off from work during the week. During breeding season, he gets one day off and Sunday is it. But this story isn't about him.
It's about how happy George is when we're both home. He is positively exhuberant when we're all together.
My husband throws the frisbee for him and George loves trying to catch it in mid-air. Mostly he misses, but every now and then he gets it (although not for the camera) and we both cheer. George knows he's done something special when we cheer.
He crouches down low awaiting his command, just like you've seen the Border Collies do on TV, and then he's off like a rocket, then jumping for that frisbee.
Unfortunately, he's way too quick for my camera. But some day, I hope to have a decent photo of him catching his prize.
This funny sculpture in our backyard is my husband's toy tee-pee. It's made of sticks that my husband has found during walks, and they're all shaped into a tee-pee. Then George's toys are added into the mix. For some reason, George likes this creation my husband made for him. He picks the toys out that he wants to play with, and it seems to keep him busy for a bit.
If you sit in certain places in our backyard, where you're protected by the wind, it actually feels quite warm. The sun on your face, the warmth in your heart, well it's everything I think a nice relaxing Sunday should be. You can read your book out there, enjoy a little glass of wine, and today I actually had to put on sunscreen! Hoping you're all enjoying your Sundays! Amen.
