Abblasen, run through the rain and coast is clear

- A decidedly un-sunny Sunday in which the afternoon was spent in slothful sofa-time, catching up on DVRd CBS Sunday Morning shows, with the wonderful opening theme music, "Abblasen" played by Wynton Marsalis.

- An exhilarating run through the rain with friend Ginny, both umbrella-less, and laughing as we reach our cars soaked.

- Putting away Sophie's nemesis, the vacuum cleaner. She emerges from behind the futon meowing her discontent and "is the coast clear?" I tell her I don't like it much either.

Lazy Sunday afternoons are perfect.

Aww, poor Sophie!

Poor Sophie! My dog feels the same way.

Talon and Mama Zen -

Sophie can move pretty fast when she needs to. I always try to imagine what the vacuum cleaner must look like to little animals. Probably like a loud beast! :)

Yay, a fellow sloth! Altho for me it's usually Saturdays that are more slothful, and Sundays I usually bounce around and get things done.

Mondays I am bouncy too. Like now! Whee-hoo, on this Kelly's first day back at school. Had a great long walk by the river, took a bunch of pix, maybe for my very nextest post.

Oh Jannie -

It was good to just veg out and be for a bit. The walk by the river sounds lovely!

Cookie -

Yes - one of my least favorite things to do - vacuum. :)

Love the photo- with the name of the music!
I actually bought a new umbrella this year to avoid the drenchies, but know the feeling well!
I detest the whiny vacuum sound, myself. Always makes my ears ring-

Snaggle -

That terracotta sun is on my back deck. I love that show so much.
