The Nice Day


Today, the sun came back.

We don’t throw the ball in the rain. Or the discs. This was the face that greeted me as the sun shone down this morning:

After a couple of days of rain, the sun was most welcome. Beloved and I decided to load the dogs into the car and visit a different park, reasoning that they’d enjoy a change. Besides, Scouty LOVES the car. We kind of forgot that Harry and Zelda hate the car. With a passion. But they LOVE the park, so we hoped it would work.

It didn’t.

Scouty burst her way into the car, and waited while the little ones got organised. Harry and Zel saw their leads and were full of excitement. We popped Harry in his harness and while I settled Zel, Harry got out of his harness. Harry went back in the harness, and Zel got out of the car. Zel got back into the car, the car started, and chaos abounded.

We travelled maybe 100 metres before it was obvious this was just not going to work.

We decided to take Harry and Zel home, but when we pulled up Scouty threw a tanty. She wanted the car, damn it. Offload Harry and Zel, back into the car, off to the park. Happy Scout.

We threw the disc, Scouty ran and jumped and played for maybe ten minutes. Then she tried to climb up my legs, decided she’d had enough, and went back to the car.

In future, we’ll stick with the park across the road.

After this, beloved and I went to the Foreshore. Newcastle is so beautiful, even though the council seems hell bent on destroying it with exorbitant parking fees and the killing off of the rail network.

It’s been a nice day, a simple day, a sunny day, a beautiful day.

Tomorrow is the Glass Awakenings exhibition. Are you coming? Have you entered the competition? It closes tomorrow!

How did you spend today?
