Lazy Day

September 1st, 2011

Today I’m just feeling too lazy to write a blog post. Well at least a blog post with any meat. I wouldn’t leave you without something to read or look at today so here are the two outdoor cats enjoying a lazy afternoon on the front porch.

We don’t have proper porch furniture yet, so I put our folding camping chairs out there for a place to sit and read or to enjoy my morning coffee. Reading on the front porch is my favorite way to spend my time when I’m feeling a little lazy.

The cats, of course, think we put them there for them and spend a lot of their time sleeping away the day in them.

What’s your favorite thing to do on a lazy day?

    …Our cats do the same thing, they think everything we do is just for them. :o)

    I enjoy spending time on the computer mostly! Our cats like dirt filled empty flower pots to sleep in though.

    Our cat does that, too. She has her own chair on our porch and one on our living room. The one on the right looks like our chubby Moo.

    I thought all furniture was for my cats and dog?!

    Reading and gardening are what I like to do to relax.

    Not much better than a good cup of coffee on the porch in the mornings!

    I am not sure if I ever have any long lazy days (I have two young children) but when I have downtime I knit. ^^

    Big mistake, now those chairs belong to your cats.

    Hi suzy, does dexter live in the garage now with little softie, or does he still come in at night?

      Dexter sometimes spends some time inside, but he much prefers to be outside, especially at night.

    Cats! Don’t you love them, they always know where the best spot is.
