Birthday hangover
This photo pretty much sums up our day today...tired. We're suffering from birthday hangover. Mom worked at the computer most of the day and we just took advantage of it and slept. Even when she got up to take a break, we lifted our head up to see what she was up to and then flopped back into our beds. This evening, she drove us all back to Connecticut after the rush hour crowd was gone. We slept all the way. Country roads are quiet. Cali was in the backseat. Sometimes she stuck her head out the window when we crossed over a lake. Miles was riding shotgun conveniently positioned under mom's outstretched hand. Me, well I was passed out in mom's lap, sshhh, I know it's not the safest.

As we left the city, we could feel the breeze blowing when she opened the windows. As mom used to say when she was a kid, "We're going to the country!" Her dad used to take her to the land in North Carolina that he inherited from his family. It's nice that we can leave the city and enjoy a few days in the country sometimes. We savored the scent of campfires from distant campgrounds infused with the hint of cooking.

We're so tired we can hardly keep our eyes open. Miles keeps curling up close to mom as she tries to watch an old James Bond movie. As soon as I post this, I'm going to join him. Cali is outside hunting. I think Cookie liked being alone for a few days, like she was on vacation. But for now all we can do is sleep and look forward to the weekend. Mom said she might pull out the copper firepit and cook up some campfire goodies tomorrow night..or the next night. We can't wait!

See you after the weekend,

Oooo Betty! I love rides in my human's car. It is almost as fun as eating scraps!

Eating scraps, riding in cars, curling up in her lap, and picking on my brother-my 4 fave things. Have a good weekend too!
