The Great Outdoors
I can feel it in my bones. Minus the bones that were so viciously and maliciously removed last July. WHO NEEDS THOSE BONES! Four legs are for the weak! Sorry, just trying to convince myself.
The weather is starting to turn. Enough with the cold wind, rain, and snow. Enough with the frozen ground and puddles of mud. Enough with the grey skies and hidden sun. I can feel it in my bones that the weather is getting warmer and sunnier and drier.
Enough with spending ten minutes outside in the rain and snow. I have had enough.
I'm ready for walks down the street, romps with the my dog friends, and perhaps a trip to the lake. I'm awaiting sunny days where all I do is relax in the middle of my yard and soak in the sun while mommy and daddy work in the garden, mow the grass, and sit with a glass of lemonade, soaking in the sun.
Don't get me wrong. At one time, I enjoyed playing in the puddles and romping in the snow. Things have changed. A foot of snow is not as inviting as it once was. It is now a challenge, an obstacle.
So now, I am ready for the sun's warmth, a weekend day, and a romp in the park with my friends. Who would like to join me?
