During the night I've wandered the house looking for somewhere comfortable to settle down. The sofa isn't long enough and the arm chairs are too soft but the Eames chair in the window isn't bad for a sore back. The family diva has not appreciated having her night time routine interrupted. She emits a brief - but pointed - ' What is it now ?' harrumph as I open the curtains .
With 'The Font' Sophie has visited the cheese shop, the interior designers, the dry cleaners and the pharmacy. There have also been walks on the beach and drinks from the puddles on the golf course. 'The Font' is not impressed when the family diva attempts to bring a large clump of kelp into the car from the beach. Sophie howls as she is driven by the Jaffa Cake cafe without stopping. It seems Angus may have his uses.
It is the annual bird count. For three days 'The Font' will spend a couple of hours recording visitors to the bird feeder. Yesterday was a big day for greenfinches but this morning only one of them has shown up. Chaffinches seem to be in the ascendant today.
The "annual bird count". I was about to ask if that's a "thing" over there. Imagine my surprise to see that it's partially backed by Cornell. While we are on a postage stamp of land in a suburban area (NJ, USA), we have a nice variety of birds. My guy is happiest when one of the hawks has a squirrel for dinner. That is a squirrel that is not eating our berries/figs/fruits/herbs. Thanks for this; we may participate!
Cheese, does Sophie like cheese?
I'll be joining the Audubon Society great backyard bird count this year from Feb 17th to 20th. Sorry to hear about your back problem. There's nothing worse than wandering the house in the middle of the night trying to find a comfortable spot.
Sorry to hear about your back as I've been there. Try Bob & Brad physiotherapists on YouTube. Their exercises helped fix my shoulder tendonitis along with time. They have many things to do for back problems while you wait for an in person appointment. Sophie looks lovely and wind blown as usual.
Poor Sophie, it's terrible for a girl to have her night-time sleep interrupted. A senior girl needs all the sleep she can get.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble getting comfortable. I had a similar problem many years ago after a bad fall. The doctor recommended I walk as much as possible, which is how we came to have our first dog.
It looks as though Sophie is visiting a select range of shops - and I'll bet none of them have Jaffa cakes!
Strolling the estate in the wee hours looking for a comfortable spot when everyone else is asleep...human and canine...not much fun.
Well done to the Font for taking care of Nobby and doing the bird count. But we are all hoping that relief for Angus's trapped nerve will come soon.
Looks like the floor is really comfy. :)
My gosh, what a beautiful room.
