It’s summer here and flowers that bloom in late summer are thriving, the philodendron, the tea rose, and crepe myrtle trees in the neighborhood. I never even knew what they were til last year, always wondered what the deep rosy colored flowered trees were called.
It’s also the best time for flounder fishing, and my husband’s favorite thing to do. His catch of the day was a good one last week and we even did a fish for tomatoes and cucumbers trade with our neighbors. It’s a good summer, and lots to be grateful for today. The father and son fishing team is a good one, when they go out together. It’s time that I am glad they have.
Our Rusty is getting older and not as enthusiastic about being outside these days in the summer heat, with some labored breathing that is worrisome. Grateful that he is still with us, enjoying every day with him. We may not get to the beach with him this year, since he resists the car like never before, just won’t get in there. It may be temporary, and there are some options for mobile pet services in our area.
So as summer winds down, and the autumn busy season approaches, we are still hoping for a September to remember with a little vacation, summer fishing and fun near the beach. Gratefulfillment.
