Breakfast and deck time was from 8:00 – 10:00 AM and I fully intended to begin trimming shrubs and mowing immediately after.
At 10:10 AM I walked into my study to find Chief already settled in for another morning nap. I decided to join him on the floor, and began massaging his arthritic hips.
Within minutes, The Girls were wiggling their way into the mix until ordered to “stille.”
After Chief rolled back to snuggle next to me, a rare act from the old boy, I began watching some videos from on my phone. Before long, all three dogs had sandwiched me on the floor.
12:45 PM, I brought my lunch to the deck. There’s a gentle breeze moving the air along in the 83-degree heat.
The dogs are back to lounging and I’m beginning to think the yard may wait until tomorrow morning.
