PORCH SWING BLUES

Little-Bit, Bebe

I was sitting on the porch swing with the dogs, swinging gently to and fro, enjoying the garden and the beautiful day.

Little-Bit, who has been doing so well, got “car” sick as soon as I put her down.

That led to one of their other favorite activities- grazing the winter grass like two little fat, white sheep.

Which, of course, resulted in dirty faces.

I ALWAYS WONDER WHAT HAPPENS IN MY HOUSE WHEN I’M GONE

I know that sometimes shredding, shedding and puddles are involved.

But I never wondered about vacuuming. I thought once the vacuum appeared, all feathered and furry creatures disappeared. Or, in the case of Feathers, brought the house down with his shrieking.

I was wrong.

There was no little greeting party at the back door when I came home yesterday. “Ah ha!” I thought , following the sounds of vacuuming to Himself’s study. My mouth fell open when I peeked around the corner.

My tiny housekeeper, She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed, was pushing the vacuum with one hand and Himself’s big desk chair with the other. It was like a funny little dance, the chair as big as she is.

She turned off the vacuum, wound up the cord and parked the desk chair moving in a practiced, matter of fact way. As she spun the desk chair around, there was Little-Bit sitting very tall, eyes only for SWMBO.

SWMBO picked up Little-Bit, gave her a bit of a cuddle, kissed her on the top of her head, set her down and commenced with the dusting.

As Little-Bit trotted off to her basket, I trotted of in the other direction, smiling to myself.

SWMBO has a soft spot.

Who knew?
