Thursday – A Little Personal – Here Comes Warmer Weather for Twiggy and Lucy

“Look at that, Little One. Sunshine.”

“Seems like it has been weeks rather than days. Let’s get in it.”

“What did you find?”

“I’m not sure. I think it might be a weed.”

“A weed? That’s impossible. You sure?”

“Give me another sniffing moment and I’ll tell you.”

“That’s not a weed. It’s just the way the turf sits.”

“Yeah I thought that would be a problem if true. I’m going to go take a sun bath.”

“The sun is nice in the yard too.”

“I like these black rocks. It’s like going to a spa. They feel real good on the bones.”

“I don’t know I’m just going to check out the patio.”

“You will be missing a lot. You just find a comfy place and relax.”

“All those little stones look uncomfortable.”

“Well, they really aren’t.”

“Hey look at these shadows. I think they make me look different.”

“Different how?”

“I could pass for a zebra or something.”

“I would choose an animal more fierce. Say a tiger.”

“You might be on to something, Little One.”

“Let’s hear you roar.”

“Arf.”

“We’ll work on that.”

    I’m so glad you have sunshine and warmth again. I can’t wait until it settles back into my area, and I can enjoy doing a little basking like Twiggy!

    A welcome change after your cold snap. We just had the warmest day of 2022 today here in California. It rained like crazy in December like the old days, but it’s been dry here for several weeks now. We don’t need another drought as the wildfires have been crazy the past two years.
