Today, still not feeling the best I decided to call into work. Diesel and I spent most of the morning snuggled together in bed. He will take the spot of anyone who has left it. And besides taking up a lot of room, he's quite the cuddler. As a matter of fact, as I am writing this, he has just awoken from another nap and has come walking down the hall from the bedroom stretching his poor legs. Such a lazy dog if we'll let him.
Around 1 o'clock or so today, I couldn't help but notice just how awesome it was looking outside. The sun was out, the sky was blue, and I could tell there was even a bit of a breeze. A quick peek at the weather on my phone confirmed it. Should we go for a walk? Will it make me feel any better? Could it actually make my cold worse? I just couldn't resist it though and I got my stuff together for the walk.
I got some water for us, and ate a quick banana while he finished his breakfast. He could tell something was up. And sure enough, once he saw his leash he was ready to go.

At the park, we walked along the river, and stopped to see some ducks. The park was pretty quite today, with kids back to school. The lunch crowd had started to thin out a little as well. After we hung out there for a while, I decided that we should get on back home and rest for a bit.
And rest we did! Diesel took a nap while I watched a few episodes of Buffy on Netflix. Now the nice weather has shifted to rainy and cloudy, but that's autumn for you. At least my mums are getting water, and they'll continue to fill out my planter boxes a little more. I love looking out the front window at all the awesome fall colors as they change day to day.
