Seizing the Remaining Summer Days
R thinks that his sister can be a goofball and so he has to carry the mantle of seriousness (most of the time).
Shyla's goofiness is obvious in the next photo. What is that girl doing with her back legs?
Actually, the two of them have become truly best friends. They play together, wrestling every morning and evening, and they often "mirror" each other like in the next photo. Did they plan that nose-licking routine?
They both want to wish you a Happy Labor Day. I know that, for most parts of the country, the end of summer probably seems far away. However, here in the Colorado mountains, autumn is creeping up on us. A few flowers are still blooming, and I try to focus on those rather than the first changing leaves. These are Harebells, and they've been blooming for a long time.
The next blooming flower, an aster, has signs of autumn behind it - a rose hip and a yellow aspen leaf.
So, for us, it's time to seize the remaining days when we can relax in the warmth of summery sunshine! Believe it or not, it usually snows at least a little in September so time is running short.
Enjoy what remains of summer. We know that we will!
