No Schedule. It’s Liberating.

Hi Mom, you’re  back already! I decided to jump back to bed when I saw you’d gone out for your morning run. Come and join me! But take your shower first. I’ll keep the bed warm…and you can have half of my pillow. Is that a deal, Mom?

It’s nice to sleep in when we’re not going anywhere. No visit to the Grooming Shop, no doctor, no errands and no trip to Smart Pet. No schedule! It’s liberating. And it’s Saturday. Again. Where did the week go? It’s like Labor Day was just yesterday. I remember ’cause I got to taste Wieners.  Right from the grill at sunset time. Memorable.

I want to plan some unscheduled fun for today. Like taking Mom for a long walk. But we’re not going to the nature reserve. I’m tired of waiting when she sets up her portrait studio. For the birds.

Come here. Look this way. No, look that way. It sounds quite ridiculous when she tries to get the birds to pose for her camera. And very boring.

So we’ll be walking south today. We’ll pass the shopping center. And on the way back we’ll pop into Carmen’s deli. Just long enough to say hi and get a treat.

Then we’ll walk back on the bay side board walk. And just around the corner we’ll stop again. At the ice cream shop.

Me…just waking up…

You look great, mom! I’m not tired anymore. I have a plan. I’ll tell you after you get your coffee. Let’s go! It’ll be a great day!

I hope you all have a great day and a wonderful weekend ❤ Bumble

 

 

Saturday in the Park

There is a park in a small corner of your mind’s eye

where the birds build their nests and the dragonflies come to play

where spring flowers extend their petals toward the sun

and where the Blue Heron is deeply engaged in observation.

*

You are invited too, come and take a slow stroll or a quick spin

let your worries melt away, your mind become clear of clutter

allow the blue skies do a spring cleaning in your heart

and refill your soul on this Saturday in the park.
