Being guarded

Both these Instagram posts illustrate parts of my day, a few hours apart. In both of them, the dogs were lying down looking out the window, which they do from time to time, especially when it’s time for Nigel to arrive back home. The photo at the bottom of this post shows them all waiting together—a blog exclusive! I didn’t share that one through Instagram.

The furbabies are often interesting and/or entertaining to watch, and they add a certain amount of life to the house, which is nice in itself. Leo, being only in his second year, is still pretty active—in fact, this photo at the bottom is the last of one I took of the three of them; he was in a different spot in the other photos, but this one seemed to match the other two better.

I’d originally planned to go take a photo of the tomatoes in the garden, but it’s been quite rainy all day. In fact, people marvelled at a waterspout off of Takapuna this evening, but, of course, I’ve already seen one of those. In any event, it was calm at that same time here at our house on the other side of the city.

With days and days of rain predicted, I may well need to put off my farm report for quite awhile. Oh well, at least I don’t have to water the garden—but I do have to dry off the dogs from time to time. Maybe they’re trying to pay me for that with their cuteness. I think they’re overpaying, if that’s the case.
