For the Golden Girls, the day was a bonanza as we spent most of it in the den. We have a generator that will run our house, but in the interest of conservation we turned off one of the heat pumps and settled ourselves in the den. The girls love that since they can freely romp and play there.
I have mentioned before that while we have a basket totally full of various toys, the dogs favorites are tennis balls and an old blue tug.
After yet another trip out in the freezing rain, the dry (but not yet groomed) dogs settled in to rest. Ellie chose to simply lie there holding a couple of tennis balls.
Lucy grabbed several tennis balls and put them in her bed.
You're not going to take this away from me, are you? I'll try not to have too much fun.
Lucy often rolls on the tennis balls for a quick massage.
A tennis ball on either side is better than one.
But you can always count on a snuggle next to Ellie, even if there really isn't room for you. Just contort your body a little and you can make it.
This morning the sun is shining and the forest looks like a crystal cathedral. We will likely have more power outages and problems with fallen trees but we are as well prepared as one can be with a generator, good books, plenty of food and two wonderful Golden Girls to keep us amused and grounded.
Have a wonderful weekend, making the best of whatever awful weather you may be having. As you manage in bad circumstances, think of all the others who are in dire straits with no respite in their futures.
