“It’s easier to put on slippers than to carpet the whole world.” ~ Al Franken
The mornings have suddenly turned cold here at the farm.
I’m meditating with a heavy prayer shawl around me for my 4am starts, and choosing to stay sitting up in bed so I can remain cosy.
Normally when my meditation is finished I’d pop out of bed, put my dressing gown and slippers on, go make a cup of tea and sit down at the kitchen table to write in my journal and then blog.
The early morning floorboards are too cold for bare feet. I need my slippers in the cooler months. But do you think I could find them today? I usually leave them under the bed. How odd that they are gone.
I’ve been searching everywhere for my slippers!
I eventually discovered one, tucked under the desk on the front veranda. Only one though.
Rufous the very good dog found the second slipper. He was obviously minding it for me so it wouldn’t run off again.
Good boy, Rufous!
Meanwhile, in Dog Land…
Rufous: Hahaha, this slipper is delicious!
Rufous: Why are they calling my name? I am innocent. Well, I will act like I am innocent.
Rufous: Oops… Would you believe I found it here on the couch? Is it yours?
Sorry, Mum. It’s only just a bit chewed. And soggy. But it’s still good.
