Well, our Internet hasn't worked well all weekend, so Aaron and I are sitting in Starbucks updating the blog. We've had an equally busy weekend to our busy week. Saturday morning we had a very intense lightning storm and it rained for several hours. Sam was rather disappointed that he couldn't go on his walk.
We made up for it, however. Here is Sam sitting in the greenbelt.
The greenbelt is one of our favorite spots to walk in the neighborhood.
I think Sam occasionally thinks I'm taking him on forced marches!
The storm knocked down many trees. This poor Palo Verde is one if its victims.
I let Sam off the leash in one of the greenbelts. He celebrated his freedom!
It made him really happy and wet!
Since the rain had kept us indoors, I worked on my painting. Don't panic! It's not finished yet!
After our walks, Sam likes to relax with a nice chewy.
On Friday we went to the bookstore. We stocked up on books and have spent Labor Day reading. Sam strongly recommends these books.
Dean Koontz published a wonderful memoir on his dog Trixie. I strongly recommend having a box of Kleenex nearby before reading it!
We also recommend this series of books by David Rosenfelt. I'm not too fond of courtroom dramas, but the books have a unique sense of humor, and the main character has a Golden Retriever!
Sam enjoyed all the books!
Sam hopes everyone enjoyed Labor Day!
