Maezi & I are very mindful of the rituals in our lives…we have things we do every morning – if we don’t do it, it feels like we’re missing something. But occasionally, we like to mix it up, so yesterday, we let Mom sleep in – until 7:01 am. & today – till 7:23 am. Which, really, was long enough, because we eat breakfast at 7:00 am. Sharp.
We didn’t want her to miss our usual morning project of checking the yard for possums, searching for lizards under the ivy & looking at the alien pod to see if it has hatched yet. Also, we need to peer down the hill into the neighbor’s yard & see if the labs down there have gotten into any mischief.
Plus, she needed to turn on the coffee pot & go out & fetch the newspaper. It’s tradition. Then, she settles in to have a cuppa & read. Only then, can we start our circus act, where we wait till she’s completely engrossed in a story, & not paying any attention to us, so in tandem, we burst thrjough the pages of the paper & land in her lap. Mayhem & general hilarity ensue. It’s our little Mother’s Day gift to her every morning. It’s a tradition.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!
Auggie & Maezi
