Thursday – A Little Personal – The Temps Get Better

Lucy and Twiggy

Well, the temperature has definitely improved. Β High is to be 79 degrees. Time to play outside.

“Come on Twiggy, let’s play.”

“Yeah, I’m coming. Just checking on Mom.”

Twiggy and Lucy

“What needs checking?”

“You know she loves having me around. I just want to make sure she won’t miss me.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“I can assure you she won’t miss you. She probably welcomes a little alone time.”

“That is hard to believe, but okay. I’ll take your word.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“look at this, Lucy. The lounges are set up.”

“Huh? I thought I saw a bird over here.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“Look, the pillows are on the lounges. I think summer is back.”

“This is still fall, Little One. Don’t be fooled.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“You ought to feel how soft.”

“I know I used to sleep on them.”

“Oh, yeah. They are soft, alright.”

“I thought I heard something.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“Was it Mom crying her eyes out?”

“No. It did sound like she was laughing through.”

Twiggy and Lucy

“Now, I’m concerned.”

“Oh, please, Little Potato. Chill out and take a nap. Mom’s fine. Probably glad to not to have you underfoot.”

“I hope she doesn’t forget me.”

“Take a nap.”

  2. Glad to see the deep freeze has eased up. The rain we have right now feels and sounds like someone’s aiming a full-power fire hose at the gable-end window, lol. Have a good rest of your week, John πŸ™‚

  3. We’re bound for the Lone Star state next week, John. Heading down to see family, so I am delighted that it’s warming up again. 😊 Love your yard and it looks like the kids do,too. My crew is the same way…pretty sure my heart will break if they are not *right* under my feet, or at the very least within my sight line. How I love these animals….

  4. 79Β° F is 26Β° C. Knock off the two and it’s the same as here today – six degrees (that’s 43Β° in old moneyFahrenheit ).
    Keep it up, though, I shall be in Florida for a few days early next month.

  8. I’m glad you put the cushions out for Twiggy, John. She looks like she approves. I thought the photo yesterday with her on the couch pillows, might have been a fluke. I hope the Producer got her Twiggy-Time.

  18. These two are just sooo cute! Glad they got a nice day to play outside. Up here, as you remember, those are few and far between at this time of year! Your back yard is lovely — lots of work went into that, and I know you’re both glad it’s done so all can enjoy it.

    1. We are glad. The grass is a little disappointing so the landscaper is going to wait until the spring and then see what we need to do. Maybe replace.
