- September has arrived, and hopefully that means the fall temperatures aren't far behind.
- Pumpkin everything is back, which makes me extra happy!
- The fact that Thursdays are now my (work) Fridays once again. During race season I have to switch to accommodate our Thursday night series... oh the things I do for the man I love!
That shot on the right above was during a pit stop on the way to the track. My girl has clearly mastered the "are we there yet" look, and if she could speak, she'd be uttering the words all the way there! Penny just can't wait to get there and greet all of her fans... after all she knows everyone can't wait to get there to
Of course, in between all the meeting and greeting, Penny loves watching her Daddy race and this one was extra special. It was a National Qualifier race and not only did he take home his best finish thusfar, 4th overall, but he got the Masters Division win as well!
Penny was quite proud, as was I, and kept a watch over things in the post-race tech line.
I know some of you are wondering why Tut and Sophie don't get to go to the races. Sophie would absolutely hate it. Strangers and unfamiliar surroundings are not her thing. My hound girl would much prefer lounging on the couch, in the comfort of her own home. Even if it means her pesky little sister crawls up to cuddle while she's snoozing.
Tut would probably like to come, but we haven't taken him to a race track since he was much younger. Back then it was the go-kart track and there were less things for him to spend the day barking at. Instead, Tut gets to be my usual errand co-pilot. I think it's safe to say he's pretty happy with the arrangement. He even puts up with that pesky little sister crawling up to cuddle with him too.
As you can see, so much to be thankful for today, and everyday! Penny has fit right into our pack and brings us all considerable joy each and every day (Tut and Sophie would probably tell you she can be considerably annoying as well). Please keep my baby girl in your thoughts today, as she is being spayed. Sure, it's a routine surgery, but I'm always a nervous Mama when my kids go under.
I'll leave you today with another quick foster update, because seeing my former foster babies living such wonderful lives in their forever homes always puts a smile on my face. This is Cotton, who has two human baby brother siblings to keep up with. She seems to have been caught taking a break amongst the trucks and tractors... much deserved, I'm sure!
What are you thankful for today? Are your human kids back to school, allowing you more knitting time? Perhaps the temperatures have become more comfortable in your area? Or maybe you poured yourself an extra glass of wine last night?
