Woo Pups, Wilber, and Girl Girl...
I don't know how the weather has been for all of you, but here it has been lovely the past few days. The days have been about 76ish and the nights 45ish!! HA ROOO! I can't wait for it to be colder, but this sure beats the heck out of 95 during the day and 75 at night. Anyroo, Friday when mom got home from work, she decided to clean off our screened in porch since it was cool. Man, alot of dirt and crap had gotten tossed everywhere, but within an hour, we had it spotless (ok almost)! So, mom has been leaving our french doors from the den to the screened in porch open. Let's see, Friday night, open. Saturday (all day), open. Currently Sunday afternoon, open and the entire fam is outside enjoying the cool weather. It is so nice! Here are some photos of Tia and I checking things out. (P.S. The 2nd photo, something in the air caught my attention.)
I am not sure why Tia was allowed on the table and not be. It does not seem fair. I mean, Turbo is allowed to get on tables. Anyroo, wait a second, something is outside.
I asked mom to go outside and check things out for me. Here is what she had to report. Sitka, I found a Monarch Butterfly at the Butterfly Bush. Oh, and I also found you looking at me through the porch screen. Lastly, I found some Lantana. Another shrub/bush that Butterflies like to feed from.
Humm, Her findings sparked my interest. I asked her to take me outside and let me check things out for myself. So, Dad took me out instead. Now, an interesting turn of events. Tia has never been one for the outside. She is 14.5 (as some of you may know) and has really never been outside past a screened in porch. Well, she got brave yesterday. Mom was right beside her while she checked out the deck and yard. Check out these photos...I must say, this upset me. See, my sister does not come outside and that confused me. I immediately rushed to her side and herded her back onto the deck. We stopped to smell the Geranium before going back into the porch. Once we were there, Tia assumed her position on one of her many thrones in our house (humm, this appears to be a new throne).
Whew! It has been a long weekend, but I have enjoyed spending time with my family and watching my University of Georgia Dawgs pull out a win against Vandy! I promise if I have not gotten to your blog this weekend, I will. It was a busy week for mom last week.
Anyroo! Hugs to all of you and head over to Steve and Kat's blog. Today is their 1st birthday!
