Uh oh…..I’m late. Well, it’s EARLY, but I’m late. I usually get my blog posted WAY before now but – well – this morning was one of those mornings when it was just plain tough to get myself going. Why? Well we had a LOT of rain all night long……it was a great night for sleeping and I did just that! I didn’t have to stay on the alert all night like I usually do – looking out the windows to make sure there were no “disturbers of the peace” lurking out there or space aliens landing in the backyard or bears bothering the birdfeeders. Part of my job you know – watching out for things that go bump in the night!
Because there was so much rain – there wouldn’t be anything OUT there to watch! I concentrated instead on something I’m really good at……sleeping.
Apparently Mom and Dad slept well too because Mom didn’t come downstairs until 5:15AM (yeah I know that’s early for some people but not my Mom!) and then, after she made coffee, gave me my breakfast, and checked the old litter box, she sat down in her recliner with me ensconced on her lap on my blanket and watched a program on TV. After I got a nice brushing it sort of – well – made me sleepy again so I snoozed while she watched the mystery on PBS.
Dad finally got up and came downstairs for coffee….which of course woke me up – so HERE I AM! Long story huh? Well, I had to let you know that there was a perfectly good reason that I’m late getting into cyberspace this morning. It’s all Mom’s fault for sitting down and letting me hop up on her lap and go back to sleep. Yep – blame Mom!
