This picture is a little blurry but you get the idea. Mom was in her studio yesterday so I came upstairs to hang out with her. This afghan was made for my Grandpa by my Aunt Valerie. After Grandpa went to heaven, my Mom kept it and it’s one of my favorite things to snuggle up in. When I’m in Mom’s studio she takes it off the chair where it “lives” and puts it on the couch…..I’ll stand on it and knead it for a while then curl up in it. BUT sometimes I like Mom to put it over the back of the couch and make me a nice cozy tent! Just like this!
I stayed in this tent for about two hours while Mom did stuff on her computer and wrote some notes and sketched……I like to keep my Mom company.
Another way cool thing is that this morning – while it’s still nice and dark outside – Mom and I went for a walk out in the yard! I guess it’s been quite a while since we’ve done that but I felt like cruising around this morning so Mom put my harness on, bundled herself up in her coat and hat, and out we went. It was cool but not really too cold….and VERY VERY QUIET. Lots of stars shining too. We went around the whole perimeter of the house…..I’d stop occasionally for a munch of grass (what little there is anyway!!)……Mom would look up at the sky for her favorite constellations (at least that’s what SHE said even though I have no idea what a constellation is!!)….then we’d move off to another spot for me to sniff around. Anyway, we went everywhere – even down in the front yard a little ways along the edge of the woods. Then our neighbor opened his garage door to head off to work and when it squeaked open it scared me I pulled on the leash so hard Mom let it go and I ran SUPER FAST back to the basement door until Mom arrived and we came back inside.
She got a cup of coffee to warm up and I had some of my breakfast. It was nice to be outside after being inside for so long though. I guess that’s what Mom means when she says she’s getting “cabin fever” !!??
Just another day in my personal paradise………… 🙂
