Nap sandwich 

After taking it real easy for the first couple of days of my staycation, today I felt up to tackling a couple of chores. I’d been promising to trim back the way-overgrown privet bushes as soon as they were done blooming, and that was over a week ago, so I figured I’d start there.

It was a lot of work, but it looks so much better. Man, it wiped me out though… I was going to run to the store for some groceries, but felt really sleepy. “I’ll just lay down for a minute,” I said to myself, sprawling sideways across my bed. 

The little dogs found me within minutes and gleefully bounced all over my back. I was so drowsy, I didn’t even pay them any attention. 

Almost an hour later, I woke up with a crick in my neck. I don’t recommend ‘sideways, draped over the bed like a rug’ as a good sleep position. But Neurotic Dog had skootched herself up against me on one side and Eater-of-Things had wormed his way under my outflung arm on the other side and tucked himself up under it.  We were all very cozy. 🙂

I’m almost tempted to try letting him sleep on the bed at night, except he isn’t nicknamed Eater-of-Things for nothing.
