You’ve noticed that haven’t you?
Think about it.....We know when it’s dinner time, lunch time, fresh water in the bowl time and snack time. Especially snack time. We even know when it’s time for you to come home from work or shopping.
Calendar time? That’s a different story. Our life does not need a calendar, so we don’t need to keep up with the day of the week, the date or even the month.
For the really important times of year, we just seem to instinctively know. It doesn’t hurt that the Halloween decorations are out. Or that the Christmas tree is waiting for us when we wake up from our mid-morning nap. We’ve found these to be pretty good indicators of important holiday seasons.
Consider too, seasonal times of year - AUTUMN! After all those hot temperatures this summer who isn’t wanting some crisp Fall temperatures?!
However, there is a small problem here sometimes…..Autumn comes before any Halloween decorations up in the house. So unless the leaves are already falling, the entrance of Autumn might be missed. And the really good leaf falling days are simply not to be missed. Some years seems like I miss them while I’m napping. Yep, it goes by that quick.
So imagine my delight when Grammie gave “her” these beautiful Autumn napkins with an important note….
There is not a moment to wait! I MUST get outside so that I don’t miss one single moment!
“She” must be blind as a bat. No wonder “she” loves Halloween. A fitting holiday if you catch my meaning….
Well I was not to miss this important event. I wanted to be outside so as to greet Autumn when it came through. Afterall, who else was going to be able to convince Autumn and it's crisp temperatures to stay around for a bit. It’s important to make Autumn feel welcome. If you want her to stick around for a bit...
‘Excuse me,’ I politely asked, ‘may I go out for some fresh fall air?’
Okay so “she” is blind AND deaf as a door nail?!?!
*pop* upside the large fluffy one’s angelic head. Is “she” paying attention now?!?
NO?! You gotta be kidding.
|Victim: Zoe - the large fluffy angelic one|
*pop pop POP* MEWRRRROOWWW
Ah, so the deaf one does indeed hear....
‘Now may I go outside? Please’
Freedom obtained. But there are no leaves falling. Unless you count the dead ones that didn’t get enough water. (hint hint whoever could be at fault there)
Still I opted to stay outside. Grammie said it was the first day of Autumn.
So I would wait. For Autumn. For hours.
It wasn’t that I didn’t know what time it is. But you knew that already. Unfortunately, so did “she”.
“She” came outside looking for me and called my name. Over and over.
Walked the property. Still calling my name. Mumbling too that it was past my curfew. Not that I was close enough to hear that. I’m just saying.
Hey, “she” needed the exercise. And it was a pleasant evening.
But around 10:30 I decided it was probably time to call it a day and wait until tomorrow. Besides it's hard to sleep when someone keeps yelling in the background of your cat dreams. Maybe Autumn would stop by tomorrow.
And if Autumn had shown up, I would have been ready.
If “she” hadn’t
thrown me in the dungeon grounded me.
Now it’s raining. I think Autumn may be on it’s way. The temperatures feel cooler. Well as much as one can feel from
down in the dungeon inside the house. Looking out from the window. I sure hope I can escape so that a proper welcome can be accomplished. I love fall and want it to last more than a week. How about you?
If you like fall too, how about putting in a good word for me? Purrlease? I really want to go play in the leaves…we could play in them together......I'll bring the snacks....purrlease......
