Time to stretch the legs and get outside...
|Grey skies over a grey lake|
|Pippin and the puddle|
As an antidote to sitting way too long surrounded by paper and books and lino cutting bits and bobs it's nice to get out of the house for a walk with the dogs. I usually walk them every day and we've a choice of 'down to the lake' or 'up the lane'. Today was a down to the lake kinda day- greyish skies and only a little warm in the sun but Belle didn't mind as she splashed around. Belle is what I call a 'ditch dog'- happy only when thrashing around in hedges and/or muddy ditches... Pippin on the other hand is way too prissy for that kind of messing about- she doesn't do lake water and really only does puddles at a push. She thinks she's a diamanté-collar type of dog sadly trapped in a less than diamanté existence (sigh, I know that feeling). Anyway today we were treated to a swan flyover -three great hulking birds honking away as they flew overhead- it really was magic to see their underbellies and hear the strong flap of their wings. Dogs were unimpressed.
