Again this year I am going to try my hand at keeping the Slice of Life going all month. If you are interested in finding out more, just check out The Two Writing Teachers blog.
Today started off as a typical Monday. The alarm went off at 5:30 and by 5:45 I was up and moving...slowly, but moving. My usual routine is to take a shower and then feed our two yellow tabby cats, Nickey and Oliver. This is what I did this morning. As I made my way downstairs to their feeding spot, Nickey zoomed past me as Oliver yowled all the way to the basement. I guess he wasn't happy that I took time to shower before they ate.
I filled their bowls and cleaned their litter box and slowly made my way back up the stairs. Before I left that area, I closed the door to be sure our new golden retriever puppy, Dave, allowed them to finish eating.
My husband's routine is to take Dave on his short walk to do his buisness and gather the two papers before he comes in for breakfast. As I came up the stairs, Dave and his "daddy" were just coming in from their morning routine. I took the stairs a little faster as I heard them coming in the house.
"Go find Mommy," my husband told Dave. There came that cute golden with his head held high and feet prancing. In his mouth he carried one of the morning papers. He walked right up to me and held it up as if to say, "Look what I brought you!"
How can a week go bad when you begin it with that look? What an adorable baby! Golden Days, indeed!!!
