Well, with the long weekend over, things are going back to normal with our household routines. We tend to follow the same pattern every weekday. Willow and I go downstairs, she eats while I make breakfast for my wife and me while my wife gets herself ready for work. When she comes downstairs I go up to shower while she eats. Willow is always waiting at the gate to the stairs for me until I get back down. I eat while my wife heads for work. Willow and I hit the couch for an hour to allow the neighborhood kids to get to school. That leaves the paths pretty empty so walking is easy for us. Making breakfast: Dad, can I help? https://photos.smugmug.com/Animals/Willow/i-WRP2v5P/0/a90933cc/X3/IMG_3316-X3.jpg Power napping beside Dad before our walk. https://photos.smugmug.com/Animals/Willow/i-sSjdhDk/0/46a0d26e/X3/IMG_3317-X3.jpg I don't know how others feel about having their Sheltie underfoot most of the time but I have to admit, I like it.
