I have a cold and a sore throat; woke up late and grumpy.
My tea was cold. I went downstairs to get some more.
Watched from the kitchen window, waiting for the tea.
Nick came into view with the washing.
Van-Ly arrived, wagging her tail, nuzzling him.
He gave her a massage/scratch around the neck.
Mr. Pibbs and Postal wrestled in the rock garden.
Mr. Pibbs left off wrestling and went to Nick.
Nick scratched both, one hand for each.
Nala arrived, plopped down two meters away, wagging her tail.
Nick went over and gave her a scratch.
Van-Ly followed. Me, too! Me, too!
One-handed scratch for each.
Miosa jumped into the laundry basket to play.
Nick removed her from the clean laundry.
Van-Ly chased Mr. Pibbs.
Postal played in the rock garden.
The sun is shining.
All's right with the world.
