Here is Lucy on Saturday.
I am opposite her but not enclosed in a meshy kitty tent.
I like to protect her when we are on our deck. There is a mean squirrel who yells at us from the tree tops. There are two huge crows who seem to stalk us. There are geese. There are ducks. There are turkey vultures sometimes.
Amidst all of this animal outdoor chaos…Lucy and I have a routine. She sits and snoozes. I sit and read. We get a bit of sun. We relax. We watch my husband mow and mulch and weed. He sometimes joins us for a break or when he is ready to stop his yard work. He tells us how many weeds are in our lawn and how our neighbors seem to be weed free and he doesn’t understand why we have so many weeds and no one else does. Lucy and I have heard all of this weed talk before. I am sure we will hear it again, probably next Saturday. Lucy and I sort of listen while we read and soak up sun. Lucy and I prefer the pretty part of gardening. We like to buy flowers and put them in pretty pots and watch them grow. We don’t really like the other part of gardening…the getting your hands dirty part. I just had a manicure yesterday…after all.
This was our Saturday.
I hope you are having a lovely weather day…what are you doing this Saturday?
Gardening? Farmer’s Market? Relaxing outside? Listening to a loved one go on and on about his weeds?
