The dog is doing his morning jogging. Really, he jogs in a circle around the house. Now that it's winter he has made quite an icy snow path, I'm not sure why he doesn't slip more often. In the summer he wears the grass out in a wide arc around the side, with branches that arc off to the front yard and off to the east field. Lucky for us he does his business there most of the time so it's safe to run around barefoot.
I have the run of the house today, my youngest is staying with her biggest sister for the weekend, and though I need to keep the noise level a bit low (my sweet husband is working nights and sleeping) I can do whatever I want!
which, sad to say, includes cleaning up the kitchen.
