There are times in which I think our dogs view me as the obnoxious "photographer" bent on messing up their lives. It's been so foggy and damp this week, the girls have been slugs and slept much of the day. You've already seen a lot of sleeping poses. So I took them outside to take a few shots. They clearly were not happy to be there.
As they came out the door, I was standing at the bottom of the steps. Lucy looked up as if to say, "Watch it, Ellie. There stands Mom with her camera!"
Girls, could you sit for a picture? It will only take a moment.
All right. We'll sit, but we won't like it. No way are we going to smile for you. Just go ahead and take the picture.
So I took the pictures of the solemn girls. They clearly did not want to be there and they didn't want me to be there, either. To their credit, it was nearing their dinner time. Their afternoon meal is at 4:30 and beginning around 4:00 they follow my husband around like...well...like puppy dogs.
----------Friday again. Exactly one week until Christmas Day. Only two days until the beginning of Hanukkah. This weekend will bring the longest days of darkness to our part of the world and we can anticipate the lengthening of daylight from now until June. Granted, it will be measured in milliseconds for a while, but it's the thought that matters.
Have a wonderful weekend, filled with holiday fun and laughter. Give thoughts to our neighbors to the north and midwest who are still having some wretched weather. And stay safe and happy.
