In all her hot , slightly humid and glaring sunniness.
I squint even with black sunglasses. Pup squints .. and you know a Poodle with a squint is not that attractive.. they don't have big eyes, like say, a German Shepherd .. they have little squinty intelligent eyes, like , oh ... Einstein.
Yeah. Pup without glasses looks like Einstein.
And I am sure , if I could read his thoughts ( I can, some) he would be thinking very heavy and intelligent thoughts.. maybe not about E's and MC squares but about olfactory goings on and how fast can Mom move on a hot day when I see that morsel lying on the ground, between us.
I woke with thoughts of dragging my slower than usual, energy-less body to Palermo and then I saw how hot it was. Do I want to sit in an outdoor cafe with the sun beating down on my head and drink a Margarita ? My head would explode.
Do I want to go in and out of shops and boutiques with a zillion tourists and Sunday shoppers? My whole body would explode.
So we walked to the park, took photos for a friend, came home.
Pup is now napping and I am going to finish a Dean Koontz book and just maybe ... I will make dinner.
It is going to be a long summer... I just know it.
