This is how we spent one of the last days of summer vacation. We took Indy to one of our favourite beaches, Crescent Beach. The tide was out so we were able to walk waaaaaay out on the sand and explore the tidal pools. It was Indy's first time swimming in the ocean and as you can see, he had a great time.
I am totally in love with this little guy (who is not so little anymore-he's growing rapidly!) and often find myself staring at him, appreciating his beautiful lines and shiny coat. He really is a gorgeous animal and has the sweetest disposition. We all adore him. There's just nothing like being greeted by him either-his whole body becomes one big puppy wiggle with the sheer joy of seeing you. Everyone should be loved like that!
I was going to share some art I did recently, but when I looked on the hard drive for the photos, I realized I hadn't taken any! I am not sure where I stashed the artwork, so I'll have to find it and share another day.
My son starts his first day of his final year of high school today. Indy starts obedience class tonight. Everyone's off to school! I have enjoyed visiting the office supply stores lately and picking up odds and ends for the studio. I am an office supply junkie. I really can't help myself. I love pens, envelopes, labels, paper and all that good stuff.
I did some quick tidying in the studio yesterday. It was getting a bit messy with all the stuff I've worked on over the summer. I will probably do a purge later this month, once I clear my plate of projects I need to complete. I am *almost* there! I don't know about you, but I find the need to do a purge at least twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. I can't stand to have unnecessary junk piling up. I usually find a fair amount of stuff to donate to charity and I always feel better when I know the house is in order.
It's hard to believe the summer is over and we are headed into fall. Two months flew by so quickly. Before you know it, it will be Canadian Thanksgiving! (Which falls on October 13th this year.) We wrapped up our summer with a BBQ with friends last night. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to the lazy days of summer. I hope your long weekend was good too!
