Sam Under Afghan on Couch

Snug as a bug in a rug (well, afghan not rug.....)

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………… 🙂

Happy Friday……..

Saturday With Sam

6
Keepin' Cool INSIDE!

Just had breakfast...just resting while I digest!

Taking a little post-breakfast rest under the dining room chair.  From here I can observe what’s going on this early Saturday morning.  Actually, Saturday morning is usually pretty quiet around here.  I did change things up a bit this morning though – it’s been a while since I asked Mom if she’d take me out in the dark….I spend a lot more time in the house than out these days.  However, since both my parents were actually up EARLY while it was still dark I thought “why not!!”…..so they harnessed me up and we went outside in the back yard.  The sky was totally clear so while Mom and Dad pointed out their favorite star formations, I ate some grass and sat observing.  I could hear the rain drops plopping through the trees onto the ground but not even the birds were awake yet so it was pretty quiet out.  Nice. 

We only stayed outside for about ten minutes.  I just wanted a little fresh air.  It was too muddy to walk around much – my white paws would have gotten all yucky!!  Once we got back inside, we all went up to the family room where I hopped on Mom’s lap and did a quick “clean up” to make sure I was spotless as usual.  A guy’s got some pride you know……………. 🙂

I’m not sure what my parents have planned for today but if it’s a typical Saturday the answer is NOT MUCH.  Fine by me.  Mom said something about maybe going shopping – that might mean a new toy for me but as you all know, my toybox (wagon) is already full of stuff……still, a new toy might be just the ticket!!

My toy box is actually a toy WAGON!

It's full...but there's always room for JUST ONE MORE!!

Nothing like a new toy to perk a guy up after several days of rain!

Hope your Saturday is super in every way…..mine’s gonna be.
