A September day

We're finally getting some relief from the heat, and this morning was a great day for a walk. Otis and Riley were raring to go! The cool morning air felt SO good and we walked and ran and meandered our way to the park and back. Love this weather!


Some new blooms in the garden ~ they looked so pretty in the morning light.





I ran some errands, stopped at Goodwill (no good finds today), then came home and did some painting. My art table is in the study by the window and usually when I paint, Otis and Riley curl up on the sofa beside me. As you can see, they made themselves comfortable.






This is where I paint.


I must admit though, not a lot of painting got done today. It was too nice outside.




And look what I noticed at the bird feeder. This little guy fell asleep!




How cute!

Your two canines are such cute little buggers! (Is Riley a boy also?) Glad your weather is nice and you are still enjoying the outdoors. PS: My apologies for calling you Terri a few posts ago...ONE of my senior moments!

We are having fabulous weather too. I'm wishing we could spend more time enjoying it. Instead we're putting in a sprinkler system. Lots of work. You enjoy your weather for me as well;).

The coziness really makes me want to get a cup of coffee and sit down at that table and paint. That bird is adorable, and Otis and Riley are the comfy cozy dogs for sure. Karen
