Even a four-day work week can get you down occasionally, and it’s so nice to have an extra holiday on a Monday.
Not having to drive into the city is always a plus, even though sometimes the view is picture-worthy (see above photo of Colonial Circle in Buffalo, New York).
But there’s something to be said for just hanging around the house, doing laundry, cleaning, reading, or doing absolutely nothing (hence, my second post this weekend!)
As a plus, we are experiencing a break in our cold winter weather. In fact, this morning I heard a robin singing – can spring be far away? Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the robin to take a photo of it. It wasn’t in the tree with the broken limb:
Nor could I found it elsewhere.
While I looked for the robin, Puppy Cody enjoyed searching the yard for squirrels and bunnies:
The back of the yard still has snow, making the tracking more enjoyable. Closer to the house, grass is showing through the snow, and when it was time to go in, Cody refused:
Even promises of “lunch” or “treats” would not budge her. Finally I just locked the gate, went in myself, and opened the window blinds so I could keep an eye on her:
Yep, still out there and still refusing to come in, the little brat.
So, you ask, how did I finally get her to come in? Well, at the most convenient time, a neighbor was walking her dog down the street and Cody ran onto the porch to look – at which point, I suggested that Cody “go look out the window!” – and dumb dog that she is, she immediately ran inside to the upstairs window so she could “see better.”
I’m so proud that I’m [still] smarter than the dog.
But probably not by much.
Happy Monday, Everyone. Tomorrow it’s back to work.
