Lazy Days

Mom got a flu shot on Friday, then it rained all weekend so she used her stiff, sore arm as an excuse to be lazy. Now that it's cooler, you'd think she be happily taking us for walks and practicing our obedience lessons and throwing the ball for us to chase. But no, she wanted to sit around all day and read or knit. What fun is that?

She did manage to put some bird seed out for the hungry flock.

This is our new neighbor, Mr Chipmunk. He lives under a rock by the side of the house, but he loves to eat at the seed bar. The new seed Dad bought has peanuts in it and this little guy stuffs his cheeks so full, they look like they're going to burst.

It was pretty boring laying around all day waiting for a human to play with us. I stayed on the window seat so I could keep my eye on the squirrels, but Noah fell asleep waiting.

At least the few puny flowers that didn't cook this summer enjoyed the rain.

Now that Mom's arm is feeling better, we're all getting a chance to run and play and she's throwing the ball again. Life is good.

Hey Porties and Tsar:

You don't suppose your Mom was using her ARM as an Excuse for not getting out and playing, do you? I mean if she could knit, and needle that sounds like that might be OK.

You better talk to her about this!

Our Mom says she probably needs to start thinking about that flu shot again too. But she says she has a tummy bug today and can't deal with shots. Any idea what a tummy bug is? We don't think we have found one in our yard - BOL:)

We had flu shots, too. Even my 24 year old son complained that he felt under the weather after the flu shot, so cut your Mom a little slack, OK? She's a pretty fine Mom, after all, and I heard she makes awesome soup!

Thanks for the reminder...we have to get going on those flu shots too.

The whole reading / knitting thing sounds great to me!
