Happy Easter! Once again I started Easter weekend out depressed because I had decided not to go home (flight were outrageously expensive). Every year I do this, and then every year I regret it. Holidays (big and small) always require a large gathering of family to celebrate. When I lived close by, I viewed these as annoyances. Now that it is not so easy to attend, I miss them very much. Despite my original gloom, I ended up having a great Easter. I woke up to a beautiful sunny day, took a two-hour walk with a friend through Rock Creek Park, had a fabulous lunch and did a little shopping. What more could a girl want?
Last week, I was working on the computer when I heard the all too familiar…scoot, scoot, pop! This is the sound I hear when Carson is trying to pop the lid off his food container and give himself a little evening snack. So, I grabbed the camera and caught him in the act. He, of course, acts like there is nothing wrong with this!
Carson also has his cousin Tex staying with us for a week (my cousins are out of town and I am dog sitting.) I busted Tex sleeping on the guest bed.
What was funny about this is that I decided to take a picture of Tex on the bed while it was dark. Naturally, the flash woke Carson. I love this picture of him because he is clearly annoyed and it looks like he is saying, “Jeez lady, go back to bed!”
