I have spent a good amount of summer away...it feels SOOOOO good to be home again...
Don't get me wrong....my travels have been a TON of fun...meeting new people, Facebook and blog friends...I really really enjoy it :)
At the Contact Sports Agility Camp, Diane gave me this lovely leash as a gift for teaching :)
Lynn thinks it's pretty fantabulous...I think she looks sexy in it :)
Over the shoulder glamour pose...Isn't this the COOLEST leash and collar though? Thanks Diane! Seriously!! I LOVE IT!
The training, the teaching, it's AWESOME, more than I ever imagined. Seeing those moments where the dogs get it, the people get it. What I LIVE for. Sharing this passion...how lucky am I????
BUT...home is home. And home is a great place for me. As a teacher you give a bit of yourself to each student...so there is a time that recharging is in order...and that is my goal now for the next several weeks before Cynosports. Enjoy my dogs, enjoy the weather, enjoy my home :)
You can for sure tell Fall is thinking of coming...
Nature's maturing...but there's still plenty to appreciate :)
My lambs, are HUGE...HUGE and gorgeous. We may be keeping several of these girls back this year...really liked Honey Badger's lambs...He was a nice ram, and his lambs are growing, healthy and I think quite pretty :)
The fruit trees are full of plums and apples...more than we can eat...anyone? Plums?? Anyone? PLEASE?? :) They are delicious and it's really rewarding having put all the effort into them to see the rewards...
A lot like dog training huh? Start off with a puppy and grow, and train them into a dog...
I don't eat my dogs...but still :)
Picking the garden, even if it is teenie tiny, is very therapeutic for me :)
And the rewards are really tasty!!! YUMMMMM!!!
So I will enjoy my home for the next several weeks, take care of my dogs, work foundation skills, reward reward reward and take care of myself too :) That way I will be as ready as possible for Nationals.
Feels so very good to be home...
