A Visit To A Favorite Spot


As much as I like naps on rainy days……yesterday was FAR from rainy and I had very few naps!  It was a really pretty day – more like a summer day really because the sun was shining and it was HOT and HUMID. 

Mom mowed the lawn and I supervised.  Then outside we went.  We walked down into the woods a little ways – many years ago when I first came to live here, Mom had a path lined with wood that led down to the little creek.  There was a GREAT BIG tree down there that had fallen years before.  Mom would put me up on the tree and I liked to walk all the way down it then back to where Mom was sitting on the tree.  We did that almost every morning……….today she carried me down there to see “our” tree and it was all covered with poison ivy!  It sure didn’t look as BIG now as it did back when I was little!  So, we came back up the trail and sat on the swing Mom and Dad put along the trail so they could sit in the shade at the edge of the woods on a hot day.  That was fun……..I sat at one end and Mom at the other and we stayed for a looooooooong time. 

Can you see the bench in the woods just down the trail a little bit?  It’s hard to see it but it’s there on the right side of the trail.  Anyway it was nice and cool there. 

Before I knew it, I was feeling drowsy……Mom noticed and since it was also getting very “buggy”, she picked me up and brought me inside and I completed my first BIG nap of the day in a sun puddle on the stairs!

Ahh....this spot will be sunny for AT LEAST another hour!

So as you can plainly tell, I enjoyed my day yesterday and today is supposed to be just as nice.  So nice I think Daddy’s going flying this morning……..so if you’ll excuse me, I’d better go help Mom pack a lunch for him to take to the airport.   Maybe I can mooch a piece of cheese or even better, a little taste of salami while she’s making his sandwich!

Tee Hee…………happy Thursday peeps!
