I am back. After a brief hiatus from blogging. Again. Poor neglected blog.
This is how the mood looks around here. Sad. Dejected. Bored. Down right pathetic. And rightly so. Our area is currently under a winter storm warning. 6-10 inches of snow. Happy second day of Spring folks. To add to the already muddy premises, snow is not what I am looking forward to. Because once it melts, more mud will ensue. I think I will go make some chocolate chip cookie dough. Because chocolate chip cookie dough makes the world go 'round. At least my little cubicle of a world.
Last week we had well over 50 degree sunny days! It was heaven. I drove around town with my sunroof open. Amazing how sun and warmer temperatures can boost one's mood.
Taking pictures of Ruby is no easy task. First, she does not like my camera in her face. Second, she has a complex about her picture being taken. Third, she is not as thrilled about my love of taking pictures as I am. Fourth, the cats always want their pictures taken. Fifth, this does not make Ruby very happy. Reason being? It makes her very jealous. She does not want the cats to hog all of my attention. She assumes all attention should be paid to her. However, if it means she won't be the center of my camera's focus, she will forgive their presence. For a few minutes anyway.
"Good. Let the cat become her subject for once."
"Did you say something Ruby? Did you want to be in the picture too? We could make it a happy cat and dog togetherness type of portrait. You. Me. Ruby and Miley. Come on short legged dog. What do you say?"
"Let me fluff up your hair a bit Ruby. You wanna look pretty for the human's camera."
"When was the last time you had your ears cleaned Ruby? I think I smell a little bit of cow poo in those furry ears of yours."
"Mom. Can I get some help here? Miley can't be serious can she? If she dares to push me off this step there will be trouble!"
"Ruby, I think your long tongue missed a tiny spot on your snout. You don't want to have any food on your face for the pictures. Hmmm. Is that calf poop I smell on you? Or is that just your breath? Good heavens dog! What makes you canines eat such things?"
"You know, next time I may just roll in some manure to keep your squirrelly whiskers out of my face."
"Honestly. Can we stop this now? I mean really just say the word Mom and Miley will be tumbled down the steps in a nano second. She is really starting to irritate me."
Yes, I would say this has been a very long winter. The next few days are gonna be interesting amongst the cats and dogs.
Bye for now. Time to eat some chocolate chip cookie dough.
