Slept In!

Wednesday, Jul 25

I slept late this morning, so am very late getting the blog up. Sorry about that, all you early risers!

Usually, the first thing I do in the morning is make coffee. Then I let the dogs out and when they’re through, I write in my journal, often for an hour or two. After that, I write.

Well, today, it was 8:30 before I even opened my eyes. I stuck a toe in the pool–cousin Mary Ann is here and had already brewed the coffee and tended to the dogs–and it was warm as bathwater. What else could I do? I put my suit on and jumped in.

Bernice keeps a wide berth of the pool, though she did take a short dip yesterday. Sadie is a water dog and comes to the side, wagging her beagley tail and wanting to be hoisted in. She’s a solid girl, but light in the water, of course. She loves to paddle around a little, then go and sit, half-submerged, on the top step of the pool.

Now, my suit is drying in the sunlight, and I’m heading back to Stone Creek, to meet up with Wyatt and Sarah. They’re probably wondering where the heck I am. 🙂
