Spiders, and Luna, and Chairs Oh My!

The past decade and a half I spent most summer days inside.  In the service industry when people are out at the beach, or enjoying vacations and taking day trips they will inevitable want you to cook them dinner.

Hence, I have missed more glorious summer days than I care to recall.  All I remember was fire, knifes and yelling.

So the other day I did something I haven’t done in years…

Laid out in my backyard for hours.

It. Was. Amazing!

The feeling of sun on my skin is priceless.  I found so many interesting small things as I moved my towel around the yard.  Like the little wild strawberries that blanket the back of the shrinking lawn.

Lots of cool spiders too.  I like spiders, they eat bugs.

Our cat Luna even came over and lounged with me.  Then ran off quickly, likely to kill something cute and fluffy.

After awhile I started feeling guilty about spending so much time doing nothing at all.

When came around the corner, I found that after trimming some of the pines that line our driveway- my husband had made a chair.

I wondered what all that noise was about.

At least one of us was productive today.

Don’t worry, I’ll get over the guilt.

    • Me too! I have always had one or two. I think cats need to have free access to the outside and being black gives them the best camouflage. We lost our big white and black “cow” cat last year to some critter. I think largely because he couldn’t blend in with anything. I miss him, he was sweet.


      • Three legged cats rock! It is always a struggle for me when my cats are out and about. I know it is good for them but there is a large part of me that would love to keep them safe inside all the time.

        When we lived in town both Felix (RIP) and Luna were inside cats. I was worried when we moved that Felix was too doofy to survive and I was unfortunately right. Hug ’em and kiss them for me. Cats are some of natures most amazing creations! Have a great day!
