When I listen...

It was another gloomy day for us, it would have been easy to curl up on the sofa and watch movies, 
read a book or maybe just take a nap.
but....I decided to listen to the girlz urging me to take a walkabout the property late this afternoon. 
 At first the girlz weren't too excited because they had to wear their purple boots, 
but once out the door we were destined for a messy walk. We love messy!!

Come see what we found.

 The trees looked as though they were weeping...

or did we find a diamond in the rough

 A milkweed seed in slumber

and some were all exposed...

oh yes, it was messy

 at times the girlz were barely visible...

the sound of silence was so peaceful.

there was so much to explore and sniff 

 Look what I would have missed had I neglected to listen.
Thanks Girlz :)

Have a great week.

Val and the Girlz

  6. My mom loves the calm and cool of gloomy days the best. Loved the beautiful photography.

  7. Just another reward of having dogs in your life. Sure, a nap or a book woulda been good, a walk was what you needed!

  8. You sure got in some quality exploring on your walkie. It sure was worth putting on those purple booties. We enjoyed every minute of it too.

  13. Love all the pics!!! Do they mind wearing the purple boots? I can remember trying them on my shepherd...she wouldn't even consider wearing them...she tried to walk and it looked like she was marching...we howled with laughter...and she never wore them! Hope all's well in your world! xo Jeanne
