I'm glad I went out to breakfast yesterday, cause this morning was rainy, and I wouldn't have wanted to go. It's been rainy on and off most of the day. The sun came out for about a half hour....and then it rained again. Now it's cloudy, but with a beautiful sunset.
I slept for awhile this morning. First in my recliner, and then I went back to bed. There didn't seem to be anything better to do, and it was dark and gloomy out, and the patter of the rain was so soothing......
Nougat did the cutest thing. I was in my recliner, and had reclined all the way back. I was dozing off, when she suddenly jumped up onto the chair (via the footrest), and stood there, between my feet, looking at me. She came and stood on me, staring down into my face (like Snoopy doing his vulture imitation)
After staring in my face for a few seconds, she lay down on top of me, and just stayed there, letting me pet her. She finally put her head down on my chest and lay there for a few more minutes. It was so sweet.
She's been good the rest of the day, too. She's getting more and more affectionate, wagging almost constantly, wanting to be petted, lying on the bed and rolling over, or throwing herself on the floor and rolling over.
Right now, she's trying to convince Mom that it's time for dessert. She's been at it since 7-ish. Mom gave her some Rice Chex in her bowl a few minutes ago, but she really wants US to go have our dessert.....even though we're not ready yet. Nougat now knows the word "dessert". We'll probably go have ours shortly, just so she doesn't come completely unhinged and unleash (pardon the pun) her Inner Gremlin, especially when she's been such a little mushpot all day.
