Yesterday, when I woke up, there was total silence outside. Usually shortly before dawn breaks, birds start singing. Was this the first sign of Fall approaching? Today though, it was like a madhouse. Squirrls made so much noise, it sounded like upheaval in the monkey house, Crows, Cardinals were all protesting about something very loudly. Happy and I had a nice sleep in. It's a holiday, so it's allowed. Speaking of monkey, Happy is quite the little monkey himself.
Playing fetch with Biko got severely interupted by him.
He's stalking her bringing the ball back:
then takes it away from her and runs. She looks a little flabbergasted.
She's still not realized that he's not playing by her rules, like Sam did. Usually she would drop the ball a few meters before me, to be picked up by Sam, who would bring me the ball. She obviously wanted Happy to do that as well, but he always grabs it and runs off with it, leaving her to go after him to get it back.
It's great fun for him, and you can almost hear him giggling. At the end of the chase he just flops down on his back, and let her have it until the next round.
On crafting news: I'm working on a secret project, just something I can't show here yet (because SHE is reading my blog); I spin a little. My Cousin Romy had a baby girl, so I've got to knit something for her as well. I found a pattern last night, have to dig out some yarn. It's NOT going to be a baby blanket (gasp), even though I would love to knit one, but it would take too long. The single socks are still waiting for their partners, but they are on the back burner, as is my cardigan. So, I better hop to it!
Have a nice Labor Day!
