Vacation – Day Two
Today was a nice, relaxing day. I watched a movie, read a lot, put up a few Christmas decorations, and played with the pups. Everyone’s stockings are now hanging on the mantel (except Niko – he doesn’t have a stocking) and a few ornaments are decorating the top of the mantle. Reyna was clearly hurting most of the day, but her attitude was pretty cheerful. The rain this morning was a great excuse to stay inside, and even Reyna didn’t want to hang out in the rain for more than a few minutes (Duncan’s never liked being outside in the rain). Once the sun came out, though, the day was beautiful. The wind wasn’t too cold until after dark. Tonight is supposed to be very cold, and tomorrow’s high isn’t even supposed to hit 40. I think it’ll be a good day to stay inside and take care of a bunch of chores. With luck, Reyna will get bored watching me do chores and she’ll stop following me around and take a nap, instead. If I can also limit her time outside in the cold, she might not hurt too badly tomorrow.
