Quiet Moments Out-of-Doors

Yesterday was warm and pleasant. Bow spent so much time out of doors that he became mellow. and there were many quiet moments in addition to the usual displays.

The concrete floor was so dry that Bow felt comfortable lying down on the stoop.

One hand held on to the swing, while the other lay over his folded legs. Can you see how happy and relaxed he is?

Later Bow went to sit on his bench.  See how mellow he looked?

 The dogs were there doing their own things. Leo had found a nice spot to dig in. Brownie was lounging. Bow watched them silently from his perch on the bench.

Later, Bow and Leo enjoyed a quiet moment together.

Leo wanted Bow to exercise some more, but Bow just wanted to commune with him through the grid.

Today is a cold and blustery day. They say it may snow again. Bow and I are staying indoors this morning, and in the afternoon Lawrence will come and play with Bow. But it was nice that we had yesterday!


  1. It was so beautiful yesterday that it was indeed startling to awake to this cold, northerly wind. I'm glad enjoyed his day outside yesterday. Hopefully, there will be many more to come soon.

    1. Hi, Kathy. I certainly hope that spring comes soon. This cold wind can't be too good for purple martins, I imagine.

  2. I could swear I typed the word, "Bow" after "I'm glad.... Oh well, you knew what I meant and I appreciate that. No, any temperatures below 45 means no flying insects for them to eat and the cold, strong winds, saps more of their energy. I keep willing the sun to come out today! Tomorrow will be better. :)

  3. Well we never had winter this year, and the weather is nice, but I dread the temperatures going up because people will be complaining about it. I do not mind the heat, but people freak out when they see me riding my bike in the heat, and that gets annoying after awhile. It is dry heat, so not humid like other places, and I think pretty bearable.

    1. I think I know what you mean. Those people are probably trying to help you, thinking you might get overheated, but it can be annoying. I used to like to go for walks when I lived in Texas, even though I did have a car. People would stop and offer me rides, just as good Samaritans, because they could not bear to see someone walking and could not imagine that it was by choice, especially when it was hot. That was a humid heat, too.
