Much better start!

It’s Easter and today is off to a much better start. Lucy dog slept through the night which means Stan and Ollie cats and I did as well. It’s been over a week since I’ve slept 7 hours straight….feel like a new leash on life. Lucy is also sedate this morning…is it the change in weather? It’s 7:15 a.m……she is resting and I updating websites. We haven’t even had our walk yet….think that will be mid-day before the family Easter celebration.

Oh! Not only is she sedate but sleeping. This morning is a miracle!

I shouldn’t be laughing but…..

…..it’s funny!

The latest Lucy escapade caused a brief moment of irritation until I realized how funny it was. Two hours later I am still smiling.

I had just returned to the computer keyboard after a wonderful Saturday morning knitting workshop. I simply wanted to send a quick note or two. That didn’t fit with Lucy’s plan for the rest of the day. She didn’t bark at me  “get away from the keyboard”. She simply “huffed” her body around and got my attention with a slam (not a nudge) with her head under my hand. Of course, that made the almost empty coffee container/mug go flying upside down….shouldn’t be more than a simple clean-up…..but no…it dripped right into my old photo album of a trip that Mom and  I took to England more than 30 years ago. I quickly grabbed the album which has see-through covers on each page. One might ask why that album was at my feet….because I am deep into reorganizing photos. I saved the album. I also saved Lucy and me from the rest of the day by taking a brisk walk for 30 minutes. All is is much calmer now…..but I am soon to make a quick get away to the movies with Bill.

Note….it was a rough start day. Lucy and boy cats wanted to be up before 4 a.m. this morning. It’s been a day….and I’m still laughing!!
