“Autumn is the hardest season. The leaves are all falling, and they're falling like
they're falling in love with the ground.”
― Andrea Gibson
We had a bit of fun trooping around the little downtown area. BK Jewelers welcomed us in out of the cold for a chat and Aedin met her little pom Molly. We stopped in a couple other pet friendly stores, and I mad a dash into Starbucks for a pick me up. I have to thank the gentleman that didn't make me leave Aedin outside. Although I did step out while they made my order. They weren't too pleased but they at least make me my salted caramel hot cocoa. Mmmmm. Heaven.
We meandered down to the riverwalk, which was bare of people. He walked calmly along the rail.
till he saw them.
Them. The kyakers.
I laughed, but he flattened and stared.
He was NOT happy and could not figure out what the weird flightless birds were on the river. It seemed to signal the end of our day, we walked back to the car after that.
It was the perfect day off with my little man. I didn't get the laundry done, or the dishes. But we had fun and enjoyed our time together. His life will be all to short. I want every moment to matter. As I type this he's sleeping in the empty serving tray on my desk.
That I keep empty. Just for him.
