Furry Naps and Good Cats
We sat out on our back step for a while a few days ago, soaking in the beautiful weather. We saw lots of birds, and eventually spied this squirrel, zonked out on a tree limb. After a while, he woke up and started doing regular squirrel things, and we found out where all the green leaves on our driveway come from. (Squirrels are very messy eaters.) He even treated us to a few aerobatic displays.
We also enticed Lorax to come out and visit. She knows she's not supposed to go outside, so it took a bit of convincing. For the longest time, she kept her feet on the very edge of the porch and just streeeeeetched her neck out as far as possible.
She did finally come out on the top step, but she didn't stay for long. She probably figured it was all a trick and she was still going to get in trouble, but of course she didn't :-)
It was a wonderful way to spend an hour, basking in the sun, spotting birds (although we never did identify "the alarm clock bird"), taking pictures, and just enjoying our house and each other--some magic moments to tuck away and file under "happy things".
