We must have brought the good weather back from California as we’ve had blue skies and sunshine all week here in the Northwest. In fact, we’ve had record breaking temperatures with Seattle reaching 80 degrees yesterday.
I’ll take it. It would have been hard to come back to rain and gray. But regardless of the weather, the cats are happy we’re back. After being cooped up inside for a week and a half, they are relishing the outdoors.
Yesterday as I sat by the stream, the dappled shadows from the Douglas Fir provided color and cover from the sunshine. It wasn’t long before Benji joined me on my lap.
Today it was Tiger’s turn to rest with me in the garden.
We both watched as a towhee came to drink. Tiger’s slow and Benji was inside so I wasn’t worried this time. I do what I can to protect the birds.
It’s good to be home.
