Woof to you,
I woke up this morning and had a really good shake. Next I wandered to the window to see what was doing out in the world and what do I see?
Mr. Squirrel munching an apple in the front yard. A Golden Delicious Apple by the way. His bushy tail was waving to and fro like a fluffy, furry flag. He held the apple in his tiny paws like he was sitting up at High Tea for the Queen. Very dainty eater that Mr. Squirrel!
I could see little, teeny-tiny teeth nibbles all over the apple as he turned it around and around. His nose twitched back and forth too. He looked like he was having the best breakfast ever and the most fun.
I didn’t want to scare him so I stayed very quiet and just watched him enjoy his big treat.
Then Mr Grey silently slinked up the front walk. He had his eye on Mr. Squirrel.
Mr. Squirrel saw him coming and scampered away fast; up the cherry blossom tree; taking his apple with him which he promptly dropped- almost on that cat’s head.
Today is a Mr. Grey kind of day. Big swirling fog is rolling up the street from the ocean. I can hardly see across the road. Grey skies are closing off the world in quiet. The air is drizzly, drippy-drop rainy. I can hear the itsy bitsy drops on leaves when I listen closely. They sound plip-plop, plip-plop and then some wind comes to swirl them off the bushes and trees with a soft swoosh.
Now that I think of it, it’s kind of like me, having a good shake in the morning after a good night’s sleep. Ha. Ha. I’m a leaf dog on a misty morning, brushing my coat with a shimmy shake. That feels so good. I bet the leaves feel good too. I bet they are giggling when the raindrops kerplop.
There is no traffic on the street. The school buses have picked up all the children at their corner bus stops and taken them off to school to have fun learning and playing together.
The Blue Jays and Crows are not jabbering up their usual storm. They are too busy having berries for breakfast in the backyard bushes. Gulp. Gulp. Down the red berries go in their beaks. Can’t talk with your mouth full. I have tried and believe me, it doesn’t work as well as plain old chewing and talking later. Plus the food falls out of your mouth! And you just look goofy with crumbs all over your face.
This is a good day for curling up napping and I am going to enjoy it to the max! You know how I love a good nap.
What do you like to do on rainy days?
