Here are mine.
My least favorite thing about the day - so far (it is early afternoon, after all) is walking back to the house from Molly's kennel knowing it will be late tonight before I'm home to let her out to run and play around the yard. She looks at me with those big brown eyes and her ears perked up with the tiniest bit of optimism. "Maybe she'll turn around. Maybe I won't be stuck here all day." And then I go in the house, look out the back door, and she jumps to reach the latch on the gate. It breaks my heart every day. I mean - Look at this face.
My favorite thing about the day - so far - is walking back to the house this morning and SEEING MY BREATH FOR THE FIRST TIME OF THE FALL!!!! Always exciting. And I feel a little better for Molly, because if she has to stay cooped in the pen all day, at least she has BEAUTIFUL weather to do it in, plenty of toys, water, food, and holes to dig. I swear at the rate she's going, we'll be able to walk straight through to Russia.
And one final question - What am I looking forward to today? This evening, I will be going to an oil painting class with an old friend. I'm excited about the class. But I'm excited about going with Her. Everyone needs a "tell it like it is, and make it FUNNY" friend. She is mine. This is going to be hysterical. Me, her, and a bunch of amateur arteeests in a very pretentious town.
This should be an historic evening.
I'll save it for tomorrow's dinner table.
