Teddy's Umbrella and Peach Pancakes

 It rained yesterday morning.

 And Teddy laid on the patio all morning under her umbrella.

 The question is, does Teddy even know that she has an umbrella?  Chows can not look up in the air, their necks are too big.  I think Teddy just thinks there is a permanent dry spot on the stone.  Tail down.

 The Blog Tech just walked by and look at her tail.  She did not budge an inch but the tail was wagging!  Tail up.

 Down puppy.  The rain eventually lulled her to sleep.

I bought some really good local peaches yesterday and made peach pancakes for the fam.  Use any pancake recipe you like and saute' thin slices of peaches in a bit of butter.  Pour the batter over the peaches.  Cook until the batter bubbles and flip over.  Serve with maple syrup.

Tell Teddy that Bella says "hello".

I think she believes that higher powers understands her need for a dry spot :-)

I often wonder how animals think, I mean we hear words when we think and animals have no language. Maybe feelings and visual memories or something.

Teddy is adorable. I'm missing our Boris so much... it's nice to see a loved pooch.
I've never thought of peach pancakes - yum, we will try.
Clive makes delicious ricotta and lemon pancakes if I've been good... very delicious too.

That dry spot speaks to Teddy. I could use an umbrella here, it's been raining all day.

I got great peaches last week at our farmer's market. We are going to try this. I do almost all of the cooking but the DH is the pancake maker in the family. He loves this idea.

Teddy's behavior is so much like Mele's! The tail..looks just like Mel's and acts the same too. I get alarmed if it is hanging down..unless she is resting.
No rain to watch out there. :(
However..it has been cooler and just beautiful!
What is great is that I can come here and get my Fall inspiration.
I am already on the alert for my one item that I am allowing myself for Halloween. I usually find a handmade witch..but no luck so far.
I start to breath again in September..my time of year.

I also set out the Fall candy and my grown kids, like yours, just love it. All of us are Fall people except my youngest. She is definitely Summer. Hmmm..wonder how that happened?? :)Gorgeous candy display! I love it!!

It's a dogs life isn't it. To be so relaxed and enjoying the rain is a great way to spend the day. The peach pancakes look scrumptious.
