When Katie and I went to bed last night I told here there was no doggie school or work this morning, so we could sleep in. No need to get me up by 6, she could relax her guard. So why was I not surprised at 6:11 this morning to wake up to this:
I guess eleven more minutes of sleep is better than nothing. She’s wound up like a clock though, spinning and barking and wanting wanting wanting.
We went outside to explore the garden. There were freeze warnings last night so I had covered up the plants that are trying to bloom on time this spring.
Yesterday evening before we covered everything up I took a picture of the tree peony just beginning to bloom. In case it didn’t survive the cold.
It survived. I’m glad, it’s in bloom for such a short time I wanted to enjoy every bit of it.
On our evening walk around the yard I noticed how beautiful the light was making everything.
Even the giant oak tree in the neighbor’s yard was beautiful in the evening, bright green leaves against the pure aqua sky.
But this morning Katie and I will be concentrating not on sits and stays but on moving this:
Good thing she got me up early.
