It’s been hot again today though we’ve had some cloud cover, and at least Maggie isn’t as restless as she has been of late. It was beautifully cool in the bedroom last night and she stretched out before either of us got in bed, falling asleep in minutes. Hubby, bless him, slept in the spare room rather than disturb her as she’d had a terrible night the night before, and all three of us slept very well.
I was awake at 5 but went back to sleep for another hour and a half, by which time Hubby was awake and having his breakfast.
We’ve been quite busy, Hubby painting the repair he did to the door frame yesterday and me cutting the grass while it was still cool outside. We have found if we do it once a week in the Summer and keep it short, it’s not such a chore or hard work.
We took Maggie for a walk in the park late this afternoon.
The geese were well scattered and there wasn’t a single place we could find to feed the ducks without them muscling in.
We hid behind the bridge wall and managed to entice half a dozen females to seed, but Radar was on full alert.
We pocketed the seed bag and walked round the other side of the lake, Radar keeping a beady eye on us all the while. He eventually gave up and swam off, so we sat on the bench quite near the park entrance and just watched some ducks at that end.
We realised it was all ducks, so the seed bag came out again and we were able to feed quite a few in peace for several minutes. Then I looked up…………….
Hubby started the countdown from 5 and got to 2………… they can’t ‘alf shift!
Oh well, nice while it lasted! Sorry, no decent pictures of ducklings today.
