Our afternoon walk was curtailed because of some cold, rainy weather, but we were still burning energy before bedtime rolled around.

Sunday morning dawned with a typical clouds and fog of winter, so we took off on our normal morning walk. But, as afternoon came to Chez Herd, our weather had turned nasty and cold. Some rain mixed with a little sleet and freezing rain made for a not fun walk (at least for the humans), so the Hu-Dad suggested we find another way to burn energy.

For some really weird reason, the Hu-Dad was smiling by the time our wrestling matches were ending.

Movie Memory Monday

The good news is that our weather was not as cold and frigid as found in this week’s Movie Memory Monday, aptly named Frigid Morning Friends. Bundle up in your heavy coats for this one.

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
