I was sleepy from mid-morning on. In the afternoon, Lydia gave me a neck rub, and then with Gabe and Dad, hid in the back room to plan the rest of my day. They came out with socks and shoes in tow. To the truck, we started on a surprise adventure.
They took me to Rattlesnake Falls for an easy hike, waterfalls, sunshine, wildflowers, and fresh air. We got home, where I was commanded to take a hot bath, which was a welcome idea to insure I didn't have any ticks let alone sheer luxurious warmth and therapy of it. I lay under a wool blanket on the couch and started a good book while they finished up heating dinner! We ate left over brisket and coleslaw to our appetites' content and finished with a sliver of cheesecake and berries to top it off. I'm a spoiled mommy.
