Usually 1 hour, sometimes 2.
If it's a 3... Leave me be.
Usually every day @2 - I look forward to it. lol
& I trained the girls to nap along.
I will go in my bedroom and no one is around, like magic... guaranteed with in 20 minutes -
I AM surrounded & It's the best feeling, it makes me giggle (usually) before we drift off for about an hour.
I kid you not! Suddenly, Abracadabra! My cat appears and will look at me with such LOVE - intensely as she starts to massage my neck and face - this is not pleasant- she has difficulty gauging her 'depth of LOVE' for me and I promptly tell her to 'stop, please.' She does.
She knows she will be asked to leave if she does not 'stop' and she does not want to be excluded, no one does. A gentle breeze reminds me of the wind chimes in the back yard.. nap time is appearing to take place pleasantly peaceful.
Then Scruffy plods up and at my feet like an anchor ready to set sail for a afternoon dream.
She snores - hopefully - I'll fall asleep before she does.
Next - guess.. My big girl!
She sleep in the hall so she can continue to do what she loves be a good protective dog.
Then the little princess comes to see where everyone went because she's been hiding under a blanket all morning. She never leaves me long though & once again soon enough- she has my back. Literally
We went out to pick up a craft supply today, she was cute & behaved as always. Unless a man addresses us - she won't say a peep.. but a man laugh at her & smiled - It's Canada Eh. ;) I respond the same and she yaps back:
"Oh yeah! I'll take off a toe of you don't watch it!"
and does a little 3 step side hop - which I've never seen her do!
This caused him to step aside and belly laugh all the harder.
Causing me to giggle - she looks at us both and then continues on with more attitude.
She learned this from the cat. a.k.a. her hump buddy.
NOW believe it or not and I'll have to set up my camera to show it.. Bird realizes what's happening and he flies into my bedroom about 3 times back & forth until all settle down then he goes into his cage for a nap too- Isn't that awesome! Yes, it does amuse me.
How can it not?
I AM never alone, and surrounded by love - good it's 'that time' of the year - to snuggle in'.
I love my girls. - Bird is the only male. He has to return to his cage.. lol
I just got that - it has me giggling, amused, feeling blessed & grateful.
I felt like drawing it so you could see how cute they all are.
Adopt a pet, treat it with love, hugs, games- warmth in Canada & when needed and you too will have such joys!! A few toons soon regarding Cannabis in Canada and pets- Eh..
I'm going to do some simpler cartoons strips while painting on canvases - so I can keep up!
We are never alone.
