It was a brisk walk to the mailbox. Most days Chance and Far Guy go alone, since Miney and Little Elvis were going along I tagged along to herd the dogs.
It was cold, but there was no wind until we got out to the end of the drive.
The sun was out and I heard there were sun dogs earlier. I didn’t get up that early.
Chance knows he is supposed to wait at the gate.
The dogs were beginning to hold up their paws. I was cold too. The wind chill was –25 to -30 below zero…it was just bitter. I only took my gloves off a few times for photos and I took my camera that fits in my pocket. When it is so cold I don’t take my big girl camera.
We were all happy to get back to the warmth of the house. On the way back I wondered what if Adam woke up while we were gone? I remembered one time he thought we had all died and a bear was outside ready to attack…he had quite an imagination a few years back.
We had a quiet day, Adam slept until 1PM. His Grandpa called upstairs “Adam are you still alive?” He was and came downstairs..hungry. He is growing again so he eats and sleeps. He is an easy keeper we hardly know we have a boy in the house. He chose to spend the weekend with us instead of accompanying his parents and brother to a Robotics Tournament…or perhaps we were the lesser of the evils. Whatever… it was still nice to have him choose us. He was supposed to stay another night but there is a storm coming so his Mom picked him up early and headed home.
