"reaching for the light"

Thursday, September 21, 2006

The summer weather is almost gone and we've had a busy time getting back into the swing of things here. With Jo Jo and I working, our time to do house work during the week is pretty slim and we have to wait for the weekends to do anything.
Well, with the cooler weather, we feel the immediate relief than the hot summer days we had. the flowers are getting back into good bloom, the grass is growing more, and the fruit trees are showing their crop.
The Ipo dog is also aware of the apple tree and what it has to offer. She knows what season it is and started to make regular trips to harvest whatever she could reach. So much so, that Jo Jo had to thin out the crop, pickup those apples that fell from the tree and tried to restrain the enthusiastic Ipo a few times.

Here we have the Ipo doggie anxious to check out the apple tree. She just complains when we don't let her out as often. Then when you try to get her back into the house, she has to be bribed. Anyway, the pictures are of Ipo's favorite sport, picking and eating apples.

Smart dogs bide their time until the can get out.
