Normally, Lynn and I take Chester and head up to the trailer when I finish work Friday. Last Friday, the weather was so horrible we stayed home for Chester.
You see, Chester is a big puppy. There’s not a lot of room for him to stretch out in the trailer so we usually spend most of our time out on the deck. When the weather gets nasty that doesn’t work. Hence no trip to the trailer Friday. I love my puppy, so not a big deal.
Saturday morning dawned bright and beautiful so we debated, loaded Chester in the car and boogied out of town. An hour and a half later, I had my feet up on the deck with Chester napping nearby. (My puppy is fifteen so he tends to nap a fair bit)
Lynn had made plans with her parents to go rose shopping so it was just Chester and I and the local wildlife. A hummingbird came to test whether the store bought nectar in the feeder is better than the honeysuckle next to it. There was a chipmunk with the worlds’ scruffiest tail who proved how brave he is by standing next to my napping puppy. Chester twitched an ear in his sleep and the little guy decided he’d been brave enough for one day. Later, a blue jay sat on the railing and complained bitterly that we have yet to replace our broken bird feeder.
For the rest of the day, I read a bit, napped a bit then read some more. That evening when Lynn arrived, (she picked up six new roses for our garden at home) I made spaghetti for supper and we relaxed and read for the rest of the evening.
Sunday, I made us pancakes for breakfast. We walked our puppy and then settled in on the deck and spent the day reading, relaxing and just quietly enjoying each others company. After supper, we took Chester for a longer walk in the cooler evening.
Once back on the deck, we started talking about packing to go home. The more we talked about it, the less we wanted to go. We were comfy and relaxed. Chester was napping on his deck again. Nobody wanted to move so we voted to come back early this morning for work.
We put our feet back up and settled into our books. I finished my book, got my laptop and switched to watching a movie. Around eleven, Lynn got chilly and moved inside to continue reading. I stayed outside with my puppy until around one, gave Chester a last walk for the night and went in to bed.
This morning we got up early, packed up and headed in for work. The trailer Gods approved our decision,so we had minimal traffic on the way home.
All in all, an awesome weekend.
