Dave is off organizing and overseeing his students' recital today, so I had a rare Saturday to myself.
I started off by sleeping in, snuggled up with the cats.
When I finally did get out of bed, what was left of the morning was spent stretched out on the couch, enjoying the sun, and finishing Mom's Mother's Day socks (I got a big surprise on Wednesday when I looked at the calendar and realized Mother's Day was THIS Sunday, not next)Pattern is Undine, in our Jungle Cat (Merino/Bamboo)- colour is Laguna.
I took the boys out with me while I was taking pictures too (not that I'm allowed out of the house without them now).
Yep - they are back on their leashes. Tux isn't too bad, he's usually quite content to settle in the garden and just watch the world go by. But Rocky has lost most of his fear, and now he wants to explore. He much faster and harder to catch than fat Tux.
So, harnesses and leashes it is. I'm on the look out for some inexpensive outdoor loungers. Then I can get some longer leads, and relax with a book while the boys explore the yard safely.
After I determined the sun was going to stay out for a while (there were a few rain clouds threatening to darken my doorstep) I took the top off Stella and delivered Mom's gift (with some flowers too!)
After the visit, I stopped, picked up a pack of cigarillos, and let Stella stretch her wheels. I live in the middle of wine country, and I'm surrounded by beautiful landscapes that I don't often get a chance to enjoy.
Now, it's after dinner and Dave should be home any time now. No doubt he'll want a quiet evening after all that music - but if tomorrow is nice, I hope he'll be up for a shared adventure.
